Imagine being crazy midst work with number crunching in its peak and deadline looming overhead
Phone rings..unknown number
Voice: Hi, is this RM
RM very rudely : yes whose this
Voice: Errr..is this RM
RM even more rudely: yes it is, whose this
Voice: getting a bit scared: hey its Nithvin
RM: Gosh! Nithvin, Hi..listen, can I call you back in the evening
Nithvin: of course any time, sorry to have disturbed you
RM keeps the phone down
Collegue: Baap rey, if I was on that phone on the other end, I would never dare to call you again, how rude can you get
Then of course, I did call her up and apologise and she was sweet enough to pretend that I wasnt rude!
Imagine yourself at work and a un known number rings
Voice: hi, is this RM
RM: yes, whose this please
Voice: Hey, its Deeps
RM: oh Deeps, is that really you?
As if someone else is going to call me and say that she is Deeps *Rolls eyes*
and we talk along as if we know each other for life (Actually its our first phone call)
I tell her that I thought she was a crank call which I sometimes get from Pakistan and she is like huh?
After the call, its 10 minutes into lunch time and I am still grinning like a cat swallowed the canary or something in those lines
Colleague: so you have friends in Pakistan?
RM: Pakistan..no nahi..
C: but you just said that right?
C: you look so happy…childhood friend ka phone tha kya?
RM: ah well!
there Deeps, now you know what I looked like after your call 🙂
I get an email from Ani who asks me for my right number..said she called earlier on some other number, and couldnt get through me
I give her my number
On Saturday evening, after our trip to the Science Centre, I get a call from an unknown number
Voice: Hey RM, its Ani
RM: oh Ani
and we go jabber jabber jabber..she wants to talk to R, but the brat refuses hmpf!
and then comes the fun
The darling lady speaks Hindi..Gosh people, I wish I could record her Hindi..its the sweetest Hindi I have ever heard anyone speak…its so cute (full of accent) and so adorable that I couldnt help but laugh…and its perfect grammatically…While my Hindi sounds typical Mumbaiyya…her Hindi sounds just perfect..Awww…I am in love with that kind of Hindi 🙂
Three phone calls, all three unexpected, all in a span of a week, all giving me so much joy that I think my heart would burst..
Blogging is definitely fun 🙂
