What would you do when you see a person standing bang in the middle of the traffic light, open his fly, adjust himself without a care in the world and then zip his fly up and cross the road - all the while humming the latest item number?

Wish that your camera phone had video recording capabilities?

Pretend not to look at it but mutter under the breath – chi chi! it happens only in India!

Wake up your sleeping friends in the car, so that they don’t miss something as entertaining as this?

Feel jealous of his carefree lifestyle? Feel J that he doesn’t fall for rules created by the society?

Girl With Big Eyes said...

Of course Prakash!!!

Dude, I seriously recommend you read Eats, shoots and leaves by Lynne Truss.

Or maybe just forget it :)

Girl With Big Eyes said...

Well Nitai,

Some things are better left undisturbed.

You owe me one :-)

Prakash said...

Hah ah...
Unfortunately am not much of a "Punctuation" freak... So i guess i shall let that bestseller be in the bookshelf, aptly, where it deserves to be.

Sure i do, owe u one, anonymous..;)

"Life is tons of discipline. Your first discipline is your vocabulary; then your grammar and your punctuation Then, in your exuberance and bounding energy you say you're going to add to that. Then you add rhyme and meter. And your delight is in that power." - Robert Frost

Discipline, is not my cup of "T". GWBE, u wanna have a cup of tea?

Prakash said...

I guess ur Blog title is missing a LOT of punctations marks, why dont u set them right?

Kirtan said...

Just forgive the guy and forget it. Everyone has a limit to self-control.
The poor fellow's will to control his urges just ran out at the wrong time and the wrong place! :-)

how about going over to his line of vision so that he can see you clearly and then adjust your strap - or better still remove ur strap (wear a removable one, never know when such a great day would come along) humming meridith brook's Bitch and looking frustrated that Earth doesn't have a thermostat that would adjust to human comfort levels.

oh i would love to do that.

Girl With Big Eyes said...

Liked the thermostat idea. But being in a place like Bangalore, you should not be complaining about the heat levels my dear. :)

Here I almost got a heat stroke at 6PM when I was leaving from the office.

I really dunno how I came across this blog of yours... but it's a nice blog. if u r thinkin, "NICE? is that all one can come up with? do ppl not know any other, less-hackneyed adjectives anymore?" well... i havent gone thru all the posts... but i did like the blog very much!

I dnt surf the Net much, but then when i saw the comment where u recommended that the dude oughta read 'Eats, shoots n leaves', lemme tell u, I was amazed! u r only the SECOND person that has spoken of the book... not as tho it's esoteric or anythin, but then... well, one has to have had a lot of patience to have read the book! well... im way too verbose. lemme stop keyin in stuff for now.

Girl With Big Eyes said...

Ditto dude. Me too yet to find more than a couple of people who read this book from cover to cover and loved it too!

And yeah, nice is a nice enough word for me :)

Thank you anon!
