Guest Post: by Shail

2 Feb

When I grow up, I want to be Shail. Feisty, plain-speaking and sensible, she shows us exactly how to raise sons to face a changing world.


I don’t know how exactly I landed on OJ’s page. Addicted that I was (and still am) to blog-hopping, one day I found myself on a page titled Wisdom Wears Neon Pyjamas. I was intrigued. The blogger’s moniker said ‘Orange Jammies’. But the page itself had been a pale green with no hint of orange anywhere in it. That did not deter me. I stopped right there to read the little nuggets of wisdom, clad in neon pyjamas I am sure, doled out with such panache and wit that I was hooked.

Such economy in the usage of words— and yet those that conveyed ever more. That’s something I struggle with in my writing. So OJ soon became someone I truly appreciated. This was way back in good old Yahoo! 360 days. Seven years down the line, she is still at it and I remain a fan of her incisive writing as much as ever.
Congratulations on completing seven years of blogging and here’s to more, in multiples of seven!

    You know, Shail, you’re absolutely right
    OJ has brevity, but is always bright
    Except when she’s gory
    Then don’t like her story
    And OJ, spot on about Shail — she’s never trite!

    OJ, you know those sites that have giveaways where the odds of winning are as good as me not burning mustard seeds? Well, this is so much better — everyone wins! Ok, at least everyone who has lived under the proverbial rock and not caught onto the slew of amazing bytes scattered across the blogosphere. In other words, thank you.
