So this guy from work, I am not close to him or anything, we just talk to each other…infact whenever we talk, we always fight…well, in a nice manner..so much so in London when our manager had taken us out for lunch together, he mentioned that if I didnt know you guys better, I would think you are married :):) yaa..basically we just fight most times…
But I dont talk to him much since he is in a completely different sphere of work than mine..
Yesterday, I was plesantly surprised when he gave me ‘The Oath of the Vayuputras’
Last week, I had seen the book in his hand and asked him if he could give it to me after he finished reading it..and yesterday he gave me the book..I said I will return it to him in some days, and he said ‘no I bought it for you’
RM: Seriously? mere liye? why
Him: Just like that rey…you wanted it, I was in crossword yesterday and so I remembered and got it for you
I thanked him profusely…and he was like its not big deal and went away
After sometime in the afternoon, my collegues and I were just taking a break from work and infact were talking about how the guy who gave me the book was a great asset to the company etc etc
He had some work from us and walked up and one of the guys mentioned ‘we were just talking about you’
Him :yaa..what happened
RM: Just like that
Him: were you guys bitching about me eh?
RM: Well, I cant even bitch about you anymore 😦
Him: why not?
RM: Well, I have a thing about guys who give me books..they are kind of special
Him: Really, what happens to them?
RM: WEll, the last guy who gave me a book as a present, I ended up marrying him
There was a stunned silence and he said ‘no no’
I laughed out aloud and said ‘dont worry, I am still married to that guy and currently have no intention of leaving him’
Everyone laughed until the guy looked at me seriously and said ‘RM, I have written inside the book, To Mr and Mrs RM, so its not a gift only to you, its for your husband also okay?‘
Poor guy, didnt know what struck him eh?
There is a big crowd when I am coming back with R in the activa..
Amma, she asks me seriously, why itna janing wahan pe?
Translated in English as ‘Why are there so many people standing there’ (Janing – Jan = People, ing = English present continous tense!)
