"How to be happy being single" for dummies.


Being twenty something, single, unmarried is one the daunting phases of a girl's life.You just have to put up with a lot of ppl who you never knew existed until the time,they materialized out of thin air and take the liberty to pop THE QUESTION

"So,when are you getting married?"

There was a time, when this question would give me the blushes. I know you would ask what's there to blush in it?. But those were the days when i was innocently naive ,adakums odukams girl. Later as time flew, I started to fake the blushes just so as to not embarrass the person asking me the embarrassing question.Still later...I faked the blush very obviously much like i'll-punch-you-inyour-face-if you-dont-shutup kinda blush. I hope you get my drift.
So, last week I ran into one of my long lost school frd at pondy bazzar.,After the intial high pitched excited screaming and hugging and the formal "Wow, you look grt", she poped the inevitable. Below is the transcript of our conversation.

Long-lost-frd : Hey...by the way, did you know A and B got married??
Me : Oh yeah, I heard!, they make a good couple.
Long-lost-frd : And also, you remember X and Y?
Me: Vaguely, i lied.
Long-lost-frd : They got married too. X used to be the x of A who married B, who infact was going around with B's frd R.Now R we know had a history of x's before B came to know about it and broke up with R and ended up with A.
Me : (by the time the character 'R' came into the story, I was staring into space at some point jus above her head and hoping this Long-Lost-Frd would get long and lost forever)
After what seemed to be a lengthy monlogue from my frd she poped the inevitable question with a twinkle in her eye,
Long-lost-frd : So, Any good news from your side????????
Me: [Long pause] Ah...there is....Ummm..
I played my time and then i said,
“India won the second test against SA and retains the No:1 spot...”
I would have given a million dollors for a camera in my hand at that very moment.Her expression was priceless.She looked like she took a bite of a whole lemon. For the first time I was having an upper hand in our conversation...
She jus said, "Nee thirunthave maatte!!!!" and waved good-bye. I'm pretty sure she went silently praying not to bump into me anytime in the future. ..hehehe

//They got married too. X used to be the x of A who married B, who infact was going around with B's frd R.Now R we know had a history of x's before B came to know about it and broke up with R and ended up with A. //

Instead of watching some kaaka parunthufyin over her head(// I was staring into space at some point jus above her head//) , u shud have keenly observed her.. and found out some free candidate (antha A,B,R,X,Y la) n correct panni irukanum..

X is x of A
A married B
R is x of B
B is friend of R
B broke with R

Ayyayyo, thappa purinjukitteenga. I supported you here. The above statement was directed at lakshmi when I said you have a one-up on her, because she said she is amukki-vasichchufying and that someone in the alphabet soup is (was) close to her. :-)

It seems you are so spontaneous in giving such replies :-).

Btw by the time I reach your post there will be tons of comments and sometimes I get lost while reading those and forget what actually I thought of saying.Then again I will read the post to comment.Kind of recap.

Definitely,the comments to your post are worth reading for fun.Does the Credit goes to Sri and Laks ?
Have a nice weekend,
Kiran.

/those and forget what actually I thought of saying.Then again I will read the post to comment///

Exactly my point, sometimes when i read my comments esp my dear frd Lakshmi's i lose track of what was the post about..I guess the credit goes to all..And in the end everyone's comments makes my day! :)
