Replies to Love could happen Again

 Hey Couch Potato

I just loved reading your post...it is like a poem...and yes love could happen again it took me few years to understand that...when i had my first heart break i was all shattered, it was as if i had lost the purpose in my life and felt there was nothing to look forward to...

But when it happened second time i knew all is not lost, there are people who has always loved me, my family and friends, and there are things which i have always wanted to do...but that did not diminish the pain, only difference was i had a better control over my emotions... i knew that love could happen again, but to reach that point it will take a while and the road is full of bumps, nothing gives solace when memories flood my heart and my eyes swell with tears, i just let them flow with the hope that they would make the pain a little lesser with every drop that goes by.

I wish the pain and waiting would be worth it when i finally i come across the one who would stand by my side come what may!!!

Your's not so happy today

Dear Couch Potato

Your post brought back old memories...old memories of my old flame, memories of my old crushes...Got nostalgic...I def. feel Love could happen again and again especially when we pass through different phases of our life....Trust me most of the time the other half prefer to chicken out of the relationship because of commitment issues....Funny!!! We cry our hearts out and experience the most difficult, painful and long months of our life and then suddenly out of nowhere a Rainbow appears showing us a ray of life....This is Life dear and with each heart ache we emerge more stronger and clear headed..

@ couch potato….
I like the attitude of the write up…
“It is the first break-up that is the most painful. You feel that life is over…no eating .. no sleeping… and you get tempted to do all sorts of crazy things….

 But then after that............ you get used to it.” J
When I read of people doing all sorts of things to show their protest, I feel pity on them. I agree that it is a difficult phase and needs to be handled with care but ending your life, slitting your wrist or pouring acid for revenge is not the right solution…

From the tone of the write up.. it is definitely not the first break up…  Life is a long journey and these memories come as the bumps and pits of the whole package…
Hmmm.. btw you got in some good mushy stuff there..  M&B style….
Romance is high in the air…
Yours blush blush….
@ all my girls

Ohhh!!  Energy fountain!!! Not so happy today eh?.  I guess I was with u during one of ur break ups. And I thot u handled it all very well.  I was such a wreck, lost all my dignity and threw away all my self-respect. I hated the person I had turned into. 
But now when I look back, I feel that it has all helped me in some way. For the first time, I learnt wat true pain is. I had always led a very sheltered life and never took any hardships of any kind. So that emotional pain was too much for me to handle. But like they say, "if it dsnt kill u, it makes u stronger". So it did make me strong! And also, it made me realise what I want.
And girls... This is NOT the story of my like.. Okayyyy????   Surely therz an influence, but I do have a happy ending as of now. Touch Wood!
Couch Potato
Hmmm Couch Potato:)

Offcourse!!! Blink!!! We all know that you are going through a beautiful phase of  life at the moment and we wish it materializes into something even more beautiful soon so that atleast we have a reason to get together after so many years..Gosh!!! I am still counting 1, 2, 3 , 4 years??? 

 Love you Guys!!!!

Because love could happen....... again.....

You walked into my life when I needed it the most. I was shattered and broke, and wishing that I just miraculously die. But you made me realise that all hope is not lost. Over a cup of coffee, we talked and teased, laughed and smiled. And during one opportune moment, my heart made a leap and it did a little dance. I pretended like nothing happened and hoped that u didn't notice when I gave it away. The coffee got cold, minutes flew and we went our separate ways. U wanted to meet me again and met we did. And I couldn't take my eyes off you. You left smiling a wicked smile and promised to meet me soon. It also brought the promise that despite the wounds, despite the pain, despite the agonies of lost love, maybe I could love... once again. But then I didn't hear from you. I dreamt of u all night and day, wondering why u left, hoping that u would come back. And there, on my birthday, came a little surprise wish from u.

There was no looking back from then on. We talked and talked and talked, but that was never really enough. I fell head over heels in love with you. You turned out to be everything that I ever wanted it to be. You showered me with affection and lots of love. You gave me the strength that no one could. I stopped caring about the world cuz u were always by my side. You filled the vaccum I was feeling inside me. You erased my pain and healed my wounds. When you held my hand, I felt secure. When u hugged me, I melt into ur arms. When u kissed my lips, my heart stopped beating. U looked deeply into my eyes, u played with my hair, u whispered sweet nothings into my ears, you cuddled me tight, you touched me tenderly, kissed me passionately and made my toes curl. You teased me playfully, made me laugh and made me dream.

And then.... u left as you came. Without leaving a word. Without making a promise that you would be back soon. I was shattered and ruined and in pain. The same agonies of lost love hunted me down. But now I know a little something. A little secret I didn't know earlier. I know that it is not the end of the world. So I wept a lil, sulked a lil and wrote few poems of agony.And I went out for coffee again, cuz I know .... love could happen..... again.....

Replies to 'The Smart Cuckoo'

@Agile serenity...loved reading your examples, i could actually visualise your trip to mall with that aunty...there are no shortage of smart cuckoos, you just need to turn around. And such people are extremely shameless, i wonder do they even have something called "conscience"...have encountered many in college, at work place, then some as neighbours also, but i always make sure that i dont end up becoming the "crow"...But i have seen my mom becoming the "crow" many times and she is generous enough to forgive such neighbours!!!

Yours brightly
Energy Fountain

@Agile - Girl, that example at work place.. thats classic!!!  I have faced similar instances many times in life... Some seniors conned me into believing that they are taking me under their wing to protect me , and made me speak up at innumerable instances, promising to back me. But what happened in reality is anybody's guess. There is a saying malayalam "kai nanayaathe meen pidikyuka", when translated into English means "to catch a
fish without wetting the hands". This is what these smart cuckoos are trying to do. And me, the idiot that am., has jumped into the water without even checking if there is any fish around. LOL! But now experiences have taught me to watch out for these smart cuckoos. Anyways, agile girl. It was a pleasure reading this. As with each of ur writing, this one made me sit up and listen, yet a smile escaped my lips...

@ Energy Fountain and Couch Potato

Kuuuu kuuuuuu kuuuuuuuuuuu... I am trying to come up with some chant that would keep 'Smart Cuckoos' away..... These parasites are everywhere that genuine and loyal people have become rare in this world.... Yes,  innocent people easily fall prey to them...
Back in college you have these parasites in your team project who make you slog with the preparation, research and report .... and they come yawning on the day of the viva..... this is inspite of knowing that their laziness could result in the whole team getting poor marks...
Sometimes you are somehow connected to them that you cannot just get rid of them....like my friend whose sister- in -law kept leaving her kids at my friend’s place.... I mean it is okay if it was once in a while... but she could not plan anything.. because her SIL would appear from thin air when she was all set to leave the house… or even worse…  call her when she was at a party to inform that the kids would show up at her doorsteps in 15 mins....
I mean how do you deal with these people ?????.... she tried talking it out with her SIL and then the drama began... the MIL and FIL blamed her for not adjusting while their daughter was out for an urgent errand... ya rite.. for all you know that urgent errand must be for a good siesta or a kitty party to attend ......
So till you guys find out the solution let me go on .... yours Kuuu Kuuuuuuu Kuuuuuuuuuing Agile....

Hey  Agile Serenity

You echoed many a sentiments...these kind of people exist in every nook and corner unfortunately they think so high of themselves...
I encountered a similar character in my previous company. She was no doubt good at what she did - training. She had this very friendly disposition towards her trainees which drew them to her. I was really impressed by her in the beginning and decided to attend one of her sessions, then realized she discussed love affairs, who is dating whom in class, about Bollywood actors and  movies in class. She would compliment each of them on how they looked and behaved but I later learned it was just to please the trainees. She really used to bitch about most of them behind their backs and poke fun at their wrong English. Now what do you say about such kind of people???? And with this attitude of hers she managed to always get 5/5 feedback rating from trainees...Hmm...

.......She Pebble...

@ she pebble
I know that could have been really frustrating.. because you were the sincere one who prepared for your classes… with the hope that at least something taught in class would be absorbed by the students and used in their corporate life… while you know how much the other teacher would have prepared for discussing Bollywood gossips and fashion in class.. hmmmm….
Life is unfair…. And the ‘smart gossip Cuckoo’ got a 5/5 leaving you to wonder …what went wrong… .
I pity her students who did not realize her true color… they must have taken her as the ‘Kweel and fun’ teacher and showered her with the rating that she did not deserve…
But don’t worry ‘ she pebble’ these people can never get things  in the right way.. they need to keep using some tactics or the other  for getting those marks, promotions, attention or whatever….
Even if they really want something, they do not have the guts to talk for themselves….
Just imagine a shameless life like that!!!!!… NOPE.. its not meant for you or for me!!!!

The smart Cuckoo

A cuckoo bird looks innocent but has a cunning character. It leaves its eggs in other bird’s nest for the host bird to incubate and rear its young. In the same way, there are some people who have a knack of getting things done. They are the problem creators who get their things done, by making some one the scape goat. They can be categorized as ‘the smart Cuckoo’.

They are among our friends. This includes the guy who asked me to accompany him to his uncle’s house in the neighborhood. Now, this was an underground house with lots of passages and partitions. We felt claustrophobic in there and there was this feeling of eeriness all around. So, my very creative friend utilized the time we got while the old couple were busy, in sketching out a cartoon. He drew his uncle and aunt as Mickey Mouse and Minnie mouse respectively, standing outside a big slice of cheese with holes. Uncle Mickey was holding a board ‘Welcome to our humble home’. Naturally, we both kept thinking about it and laughing throughout. The poor couple mistook it as part of the generation gap and wrote us off as a pair of jovial youngsters. After that day, I saw the couple many times and felt that they ignored me. I thought that it was only a feeling until one day; I met uncle at the departmental store. I was like “Hi uncle!! Came to get some grocery??” He gave me an Uncle Scrooge look and sneered “Exactly. You see, we ran out of cheese.”
I immediately hunt down my friend. It was only after a lot of torture (like tickling his feet with a bird’s feather and pulling his hair from his head- one by one) that he finally gave in. He confessed that he had left the cartoon at uncle’s place that day (What!!!) and in order to save his face, he conveniently made me the cartoonist. He justified himself by telling “I am related to him. I am sure that anybody in my place, would have done the same thing.”
This is a normal characteristic of ‘the Smart Cuckoo’. They have their version of explanation for all the nonsense that they do.
They also come as a group. They could be your colleagues who drill you to ask for an increment, just before a meeting. During the meeting, you raise your hand to make the point. After which, your boss crosses his hand and asks the group “Does anyone else have the same opinion??” This question is being presented to same people who were barking about employee rights and total dissatisfaction, just few minutes ago. Suddenly, half of them act as though they are struck by rare case of amnesia. The other half, sit as though they had erroneously rolled back their tongue and swallowed it down for lunch.
This is yet another characteristic of the people who belong to ‘the Smart Cuckoo’. They poison in private and go mute in public.
Now, if that is not enough damage, I am pleased to announce that they even come in all ages. The classic example is the headmistress next door. She has this eccentric dressing style which even girls half her age would not dare to try. She drags me out for shopping every time. You need to read further to understand her real motive….
As usual, she wanted to select this shocking colored dress. I warned her that, her son would refuse to let her inside the house. She protested telling that “This is an ‘in-thing’. You wait and watch. Here, nobody has a sense of fashion. My style is going to be a synonym to that word”. Since, she is a headmistress; she is never in scarcity of dialogues. In order to start teaching the lesson of fashion immediately, she decides to wear her ‘in-thing’ from the store itself. The store people were glad that they got rid of a piece that, customers refused to take for free. They happily packed up her old clothes for her. After all, ‘customer is king’.
We had lunch and were just about to board a cab, when her son comes and drags us into his car. It seems that his friends had informed him about the catastrophic event that was going to happen if his mother was allowed more time in that outfit.
Having realized that her son would be pouncing on her, the headmistress burst out into crocodile tears and started bleating like an innocent lamb, “I tried on the clothes and she said that I looked great.” In midst of this, she wiped out her tears and signaled me, to join her side of the drama. She was one drama queen alright.
This brings me to the third characteristic of ‘the smart cuckoo’. A similar confrontation is dealt differently by the two sexes. The female ‘smart cuckoo’ would scare us by bursting her tear cylinders so as to avoid giving answers. The male ‘smart cuckoo’ would not allow us to talk, by showing sudden outburst of anger similar to that shown by hungry cats fighting over some leftovers.
Now that they have been exposed, get smart, people. Don’t allow ‘the smart cuckoo’ to lay their eggs in your basket.

Replies to the Gigolo ad...

Hey she pebble,

Your article on gigolo ad posted here http://partyanytime.blogspot.
com/2011/05/gigolo-ad_8510.html is a really interesting one...  It was humorous. But it also made me think about female sexuality in general. In India, we talk about prostitutes all the time. Be it banning prostitution, legalising it or whatever. But never about gigolos. And the need to legalize. Mostly cuz we under rate the aspect of female sexuality... That was a good one indeed...

Dear  she pebble

For people with potential there's no dearth of jobs, though you might have to fight it out. I guess this guy is one of those who mixes business and pleasure...he just wants to earn some easy money!!!...i have no sympathies for such people, fit for thrash

Energy Fountain says so

Agile Serenity here.....

Don’t you think there could be another side to this educated youth trying to make easy money. Take the case of female prostitutes in India...most of them were trapped. It is a very small number who willingly take it up as a profession. Else, majority of them are sold by parents or married to wrong guys or even duped after being promised employment. Okay if this happened to girls whose families wanted money desperately... 

What must have happened to this guy!!!!...Possible that he must have had some bad experience that scarred his childhood. He must have been young and scared to tell it out. Most abused children are threatened by their assailants. Since, nobody knew about it.... he must have not had proper counseling... The wound was never healed after so many years…

Hey Guys
