The One Where We Wallow In The Shallow

12 Sep

OJ to her girlfriends (proudly): Ahem! Notice my new glasses?

Girlfriend 1 (blankly): New glasses? They look the same.

OJ (huffily): These are Tommy Hilfiger tortoiseshells. The old ones were black.

Girlfriend 2 (absently): I never noticed your old ones either.

OJ (glaringly): The problem with you guys is that you love me for the person I am!

    Am grinning from ear to ear
    At you three girls so dear
    The “glaringly” pun was oh-so-clever
    Wonder whether it was intended ever
    And the glasses — do they make you a better seer?

    Oh, what a waste!

    Dipali: I’m sure you’d love my new glasses too, so what if nobody else noticed them. Hmph! 😦

    Aunty G: And I’m the punster he-er? 😉

    D: Err, no! *I’m* still admiring them!

    Piper: You don’t love me for the person I am, do you? Do you, do you?

    Heh heh….that’s exactly the sort of response I’d have provided too! See, we ALL love you for the person you are. And that’s in spite of (or because of) the neon pyjamas – who wouldnt love such sartorial style.

    Well the key is that the GIRLfriends didn’t recognise you..right?

    yikes I meant it was only the girlfriends that didnt realise that you had new frames 😉

    got thrown off track by your twitter update!!!

    Thinking Cramps: C’mon now, admit it. You just love me because I’m a fellow foodie.

    Gooddaysunshine: I suppose that *is* a valid point. 😀 The Boy peered dutifully at them and made the appropriate noises. But of course, that could be entirely due to the fact that he was on speed dial throughout the entire glass-acquisition expedition. 😉

    Oh yeah, that too….I need to get back to Bombay. Here, I invariably bump into a trim jogger when I waddle out of a restaurant on a full stomach. Grrrr…

    Thinking Cramps: You do, you do! All my friends need to move back to Bombay. Including the ONES IN CAMBRIDGE WHO LURK HERE!!!

    What?! You suffer from ADD with this blog around??

    Dadoji: lol! 😀 That’s not the kind of attention the disorder covers. 😉 (Although if you ever ask the Boy, he’ll say ADHD is my middle name, but we’ll just pretend you didn’t hear that.)

Here's a bar of chocolate. Now talk to me. :)
