TAKE TWO




Here is an ongoing conversation of two wonderful people namely Mr. Ghanshyam and Ms. Harini. Mr. Ghanshyam is a final year student of Viscom (a line that’s still a mystery to him). He’s a very talented singer and most importantly, a foodie. Ms. Harini is a final year student of B.Com (and she’s dying to graduate). She’s an upcoming singer and again, a big foodie.

The two of them bump into each other on orkut on a Friday evening, as the blogger in Harini does the recording.


H: gimme a lil while.. i'll go gobble food. else i'll cry.
G: eat, girl, to your heart's content...
H: i always eat to my heart's content. which is why my tummy is as big as my heart. rather, bigger.
G: no match for mine, surely?
H: you're a boy. you CAN afford to get heftier.. i cant :(
G: that doesn't make sense to me at all... i thought you're a crusader for equal rights for women and stuff? you're exercising your right to get hefty...
H: lol. bt i dont want to....
i wanna be half my weight!
hehehe.
G: you think i'm proud of my girth? i'm just trying to think up the bright side of being nearly spherical.
H: jus like i always claim that this is a man's world...
i also think its a "slim's world"...
mind you, not THIN.. but SLIM!
G: that is the sad truth i have come to accept... but then sometimes being psychologically slim does just enough to make people forget you aren't quite physically slim... actually, that's all crap, a little more of looking on the bright side...





H: (out of the blue) curd rice, maanga oorga tastes like HEAVEN...............................
(H jus got herself some curd rice maanga oorga, that her amma had beeeeeeautifully pesenjified and put in a kutti dabba for her to eat along with a spoon.. **smiles**)
G: ah, yes... so too does onion rava, and plain dosa, and oothappam, and most things edible...
paruppu sadam drenched with ghee is quite nice too!
H: parupu saadham drenched with gheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee..............
aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahh. suda suda suda suda. vethakozhambu or sambhar to thottufy. and alu frrrrryyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy and applaaaaaaaaaaaam!
i wanna eat. now now now now now...
G: hehe... i love simple stuff, like poricha kootu, pumpkin or podalanga or cabbage... and some of the stuff me mum makes in the evenings... what can i say... simply divine... like pudi kozhukattai... mor kali... puli aval... man i simply looooove me mum's cooking!
H: iyer saapaadu rocks, dont you think?
specially kalyana saapaadu!
and i've NEVER not put on.. ATLEAST two kgs, everytime there's a relative's wedding at home..
you must probably ask sangee, what a saapaatu raami i am!
G: hehe... being rotund is all for a good cause, i guess... but some of my friends eat three times as much as i do, and look like straws... unfair...
H: ABSOLUTELY. tell me about it...
and that's GROSSELY (if its a typo, ignore it) unfair..
:( life IS so MEAN................. aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh. i wanna scream.
