Precision matters!!!



I looked at her… she looked at me…she came towards me…with a very determined look. I cringed knowing that I would goof up again. Was i sweating? i hoped not...I would smell awful!!!

Was it going to be on the left or the right…left or right…?

She inched towards my left…i inched towards her right…

So intent was I on getting it right,

that I never realised

when she changed directions…

Clash!!! splat!! *$#& …a bruised cheek, an even more bruised ego!!!


What's with these new greetings anyways? These days, a hello seems to require a lot of precision and grace, just to safely connect.

So next time you meet me and decide to give me that cheek to cheek air kiss….i’d go for a back slap anytime…I’m a new fan of high five’s too…or a wide smile...I love smiling, see? :D

Don’t ever be cheeky to me!!!

sigh..okay..okay...I'm kidding...I love enthusiasm...just give me some notice, will you?

:) real funny. Have you read Bill Clinton's My Life? Some incidents are pretty hilarious like how he avoided being kissed by Arafat. If you don't want to be kissed, hold out your hand for a handshake and and gently squeeze their right arm with you left hand!!!! :) :)

We men seem to be kissing each other these days too. Whatever next?

The other day I had a left/right/left/right problem with a bloke and we ended with a kiss on the mouth! And he hadn't even shaved!

Nice one!

I'm having fun time reading my friend's blogs and their friend's blog and their friend's......

Guruprasad said...

its even more miserable for us guys who have to air-kiss some girls and not air-kiss the others.... and i am never sure which is which :(

Suma said...

koolkat
whr have you been? and yes, teh jhappi works well for me too :)

JLT
now why do i think you were rolling in laughter here? :)

rohit
same here, same here....nice to c u here, tho

guru!!!!!
LOOOng time, no? why do you HAVE to air kiss some girls?!!! just shake a hand next time...

Guruprasad said...

i normally extend my hand which makes it quite clear.... but some women pucker up and lean forward to air-kiss you.... and that's what i meant when i said we HAVE to reciprocate... i guess it would offend them if i backed off in alarm, right? :P

Suma said...

ahhh yes, THAT would pose a problem...lage raho,

well, that's why precision matters...u wouldn't want a goof up there...:p
