Like every other tom dick and harry I want a girl friend too... I mean just one girl, fall in love with her, marry her and have kids. That thing ain’t gonna happen. See, I’m friendly funny and stuff but never the conversation initiator.
What made me write this? Today I took a train from Chennai to Coimbatore. Usually its grannies or men who give me company. First time in my damn history of bad luck, I had a girl sitting right next to me. This girl was my type. She was homely. She was a nonstop chatterbox; mind you she wasn’t talking to me. She was talking to her friend.
There she was looking so pretty and here I was... pondering how to start the conversation. Half an hour passed by, am still sitting there not saying a word. By now it’s even weird to say ‘hi’. Come on face it. I been sitting there with her for more than 30 minutes and say ‘Hi’ outta no where... Not such a good idea.
Then a guy about 35 years got on train and sat opposite to me. For a while, I thought the years of bad luck were finally over. This guy had to come up and remind me, it’s gonna stay. Then he called someone and asked what was he listening too. Then called someone else and asked the same question this time it was an MCQ. He gave choices. Option a – Vettaikaran Option b – Ayan. This was getting odd. Then to top it he sang a song, guess which one? From the TATA DOCOMO ad. I like it too but you gotta face the facts. Nobody in the train is gonna get the lead and join him. We just ignored him. He calmed himself after awhile. Now why are we talking about this guy?
An hour passed by still not a word spoken. I mustered up some courage and asked her. “Are you going to Coimbatore?” She said, “yes” Me, “I m going there too... If I don’t wake up, could you wake me?” She had a really cute smile now, “Okay...” Now I gave a perfect imitation of Ross trying to say something, anything to Denise Richards. Boy that was awkward. With nothing I could think of to say I got on my upper birth turned on my mp3 player and.... dozed off....
