When the creators of English language invented this little alphabet between “h” and “j” , they probably had no idea as to how big the consequences are going to be .
This tiny little “I” has had histories written behind it , wars fought over it …and let’s say quite a few no. of breakups ( now that aroused your interest , dincha ? )
Scene I :
Me – “ Dood , you know there is this place …”
Guy x –“man ! I went there ….and I did that..and I own Bill Gates’ toilet papers “
Scene II :
Me – “ have you read that particular book ? “
Guy y- “Hey , I read this …and I went to that movie …and I had piles operation ! “
*blah blah blah blah blah blah *
If your power of observations are intact …notice that in each case , the conversation deviates from the original point ( duration lasting 10 mins. to half-hour )
By the end of which I get totally thrown off the point
And in the end , I just sit mouthing “ok..you…you…you”
( and then comes the classic line , “Hey , I am only doing all the talking man !”. and THAT smug look ! )
Which brings us to the crucial point … it’s a very good thing to have self respect and an even better thing to have opinions .
But ,didn’t mummy teach you ..there is a time and place for everything ?
This sudden urge to reveal one’s talents and achievements ( and toiletry habits…and daily routine…and chaddhi size …and God knows what not ! ) can lead to extreme boredom on the listener’s part ….not to mention daydreaming and an instant desire to bang heads ?
So , the next time you are sitting in a group …think ….observe …look around .
Are people there interested in you ? is there a dearth of sensible/gossip/perverted topics ? do any one of them look like they have coconuts for brains ?
If the answer to any to of the above two is ‘YES” …then go ahead , you have my blessings , start blabbering about your charismatic personallity .
If your inner self still feels unexpressed and lonely ….be like me ! and start blogging .
No better way to boast and throw your weight around ;-D
