You know some days you will remember for a long time
I think this Tuesday was one of those days
Remember I wrote about this guy in my morning meets who just waves and smiles at R..and doesnt acknowledge my presence..
R and I are standing at the bus stop and I see this guy coming with a really hot girl with him..
Wow I think in my mind, she is so hot..and to my surprise, she comes and touches R on the cheeks and says ‘hi baby’ and looks up to me and says ‘oh I have heard so much about her from my husband, how she always smiles and waves to him and his mornings are made, she is so adorable’
I look at her and I look at him, they are not even bothered look at me, all their attention is on R.
I smile and say thank you when she looks up to me..and then I think, I should be letting SnS know about the guy being married..(See how much I think about blogs!)
anyways, so both of them get off in a stop before ours, and R says loudly ‘arey Amma, woh bhaiya toh aaj woh didi ke saath down ho gaye, kyun?’
They both look back and the whole bus starts laughing!!
anyways, we go further ahead and are set in our routines…
Then I am waiting for the evening because RD and I have a special date..at Bvr market…
Errr…with an Aussie friend of his who wants to shop on the street..
I tell you, this girl is a total sport…she walked through the market with no issues, no amount of bumping into people or rickshaws bothered her and she bought what she wanted..only thing that scared her was that she was afraid that the people hanging out of the BEST bus would hurt her hehehe 🙂
Well thats not the point, the reason I will remember this day is
I SAT IN A MERC!!!
imagine people!!! An Actually MERC..with plush interiors and (hold your breath) a sun roof that OPENS!!
yes yes yes *Jumps up with joy*
The merc was given to her because of some problem she faced while coming from the airport to the hotel on the day of her arrival and as a compensation and mark of apology, the car company has given her a merc!!!
I mean a real merc!!!
Some conversations with the Driver
RD: Errr…I will sit in the front
D: okie…just push the seat back
RD is hunting for the push back rod
D: Sir, push back that button in the door
D: arey sir, that button on the door
RD: arey there are so many buttons
D shows him which button and the seat moves back automatically
I am gaping like a fish!
and then I tell the driver ‘bhai saab please park the car a bit away from the daycare or else they will think if we get off in Mercs they will charge us twice the fees :)’
Then we get R inside the car
D: Sir open the sunroof for her to see na
RM: No no its okie
D: arey madam, let her enjoy..its okie
So the sun roof gets open and the expression on R’s face is priceless..she gets down in a while, the roof gets closed..and R being R says ‘Uncle zara vapis open karo na, maza aa raha hai!! (Uncle please open again, its fun)
RM: bhaisaab, you dont travel much to this side of town na
D: hesitantly, no madam
RM: Well you dont need to right?
D: no no madam, this side of town is also nice
RD: Well, nice or not, this is all we can afford 🙂
RD: so you take all foreigners only in this car na
D: yes sir and some celebrities
D: yes Tendulkar, and Sanju baba and Shahrukh khan
RM is still gaping at the fact that she is travelling in the same car as those guys
and R suddenly quips ‘Arey yeh Shahrukh khan kaun hai?’
Trust this girl to make me realise that everyone is after all human even if a celebrity 🙂
And so we take RD’s friend out for dinner..no wait lemme correct, she takes us out for dinner and actually drops us ALL THE WAY HOME!!!! We thank her profusely and thank the driver even more profusely….. 🙂
I dont think I am ever getting into a Merc in this janam, it happened on Tuesday for the first and last time in my life so this is pretty blogworthy eh?
