I have been writing on some serious topics these days…seriously creating an illusion that I can think deep & profound thoughts. That would make the blog title a total misnomer if there ever was one! So in order to protect my reputation & also that of my blog, I am back with a ‘normal’ post. Since all weekend I have been busy with guiding my classmates on how to drink & party( details later) & trying to categorize the various movies I have in my laptop( making space deleting all those useless PPT slides our teachers give us), I am short of inspiration. So I’ll do what I do best-talk about myself.
My Most Embarrassing Moment(s):
Ah! I can already see your eyes flare up & you licking your lips in anticipation. No one can resist a good laugh at other’s expense. And I am benevolent enough to let you have your fun.
As you already know(presuming you are a regular reader) I am notorious for running into trouble-weird love life, kitchen fires, drunk & wasted, making a fool of myself-I have done it all. And it started at an early age.
My Sweet Tooth & Sharp Tongue: It was in nursery or maybe upper nursery when I was in Calcutta. It is the custom at schools for the birthday girl/boy to distribute chocolates to all teachers. Personally I think it’s a bribe to say-spare me on my birthday atleast! Anyway so there was a guy from another section who came up to give chocolates to the Miss in my class. My sweet tooth couldn’t resist & I whispered to my friend-look at this teacher, she is so old & still eating chocolates! Shouldn’t she give us some?
And bingo! My so-called friend went up & told this to the teacher who made me stand up the entire period. The news spread too( you would think nursery kids don’t gossip!) and I got my 15minutes of ‘fame’ as they say .
Marrying Chunky Pandey: Although it wasn’t embarrassing then, it is VERY embarrassing now! I don’t remember what movie it was that made me say it, but I did. Declared in front of my parents- I want to marry Chunky Pandey when I grow up! My parents are good people( or they have bad memory) they have never taunted me about it. But I cannot help cringing when I replay that scene in my head…!
Ermm What Was Your Name Again?: This happened when I was in class 9. I was the deputy monitor or something & had been sent on an errand to another class. When the teacher who had sent me, asked who was teaching in the other class I drew a blank. See, I am a girl who didn’t even know who the people in the other sections were( small social life minus Facebook & Twitter, remember?). Now try standing in front of your classmates trying to describe a teacher’s physical appearance to another teacher. Bet you can’t beat that!
There are plenty more such moments-am saving them for a rainy day (& some that will never see the light of the day). Do share some of your ‘moments’ too & make me feel like I am not the only buffoon in this world!
