Subs with a stranger

Another of those 55 word shorties..

Sitting two seats away in the departure lounge, he felt threatened as she told him, a complete stranger, all about her trip.

Then she mentioned her “husband and two kids”.

At ease, he soon warmed up to her over foot-longs and soda.

He had concluded that a married desi woman would never hit on strangers.

VC said...

WHAT!!! A guy (desi or otherwise) feeling threatened when a woman (desi, non-desi, married, single, in-a-relationship) opens up to him??????????? On what planet is this???? :)

alpana said...

hey anti, good one but what if it is a super sexy desi mom? would lead "krackter" in yr story still have qualms about being hit upon?

anantha said...

alpana: You are not going to put words into my mouth. Some people don't get into the "Hit me baby, one more time" phase all of a sudden ;) They need to think about it and weigh all options :D

VC: Welcome to earth!

?!: Ya, certainly missing vital info ;)

Visit: Nalla conclusion la? :D

Apropos of nothing, your blog could certainly use a makeover. (I HATE ornate blogs that take ages to download on my 14.4 dialup - plus heavy gothic decor makes me want to gag). Some kind of fonts and stuff and SOME color co-ordination ... ? ( A brill move @ the live update on the cricket scores. It updates faster than rediff's live scorecard, which is probably what inspired this ... I've spent most of the day on the blog!).

?!: I know...That cricket score thing is my baby. Can confidently say that my blog was the first (have most of my old template versions,so with some digging I could establish that claim) to have one of these things. Talked to a Cricinfo employee to make sure they were ok with it. He said that as long as I credit them (i.e. that "Powered by Cricinfo" gif/link), they are fine. I actually helped a couple of other ppl set it up on their blogs too. :D
Ya the blog could use a makeover. But already, considering the professional state I am, I have already started hearing whispers from non-blogger friends that I spend too much time blogging, which in my opinion I don't. And there is only that much time I can spend on job hunt sites and the ilk before I go mad. So I am using this as a vent to let some steam out. And I actually wrote this particular post on the back of my resume on a late night flight, not wanting to think about other things! So, I am actually waiting to do a makeover here. Its two years now.
Ornate Blog? Hmm.. You talking about the content or the design? :)
Ya, it might take a long time to load cos of all the Javascript based services (like the blogroll). Hmm.. Let me see...soon. Thanks for the feedback though!
