So, what am I afraid of ?
Phew, just finished replying to all the comments for my previous post. It was a war out there, and had to post something before it turns out all blood and gory. Thanks a lot men, and crafty for being with me and I also thank the rest of the women folk for not coming down to Chennai with your sandals and boots.
The contents of this post might be a little outdated, but what the heck, you guys would read it anyway and then pull my leg at the end! LOL. The other day, after reading IHMs post titled What are you afraid of ? I went online and asked that question to a few of the loonies in my g-talk. The following 55-er is an excerpt of one such chat session of mine with Rakesh :
What all are you afraid of?
Rakesh : 😆 Nice way to start a conversation !
Ok. Hi, how are you? So, what are you afraid of?
Rakesh : Jobless guy ! Hmmm…Centipedes, Snakes, Werewolf, Women, Himesh Reshammiya !
Himesh ?? in the same list?
Rakesh : Yeah, The rest of them bites, but Himesh has to just open his mouth.
Now if you ask me what I am really afraid of, my immediate answer would be Stalkers ! It really bothers me when someone misunderstands or misjudges me, and that too when the source of the misunderstanding is because of some psychopath. Its sometimes difficult to convince a misunderstood person and at times, I am so impatient in getting back a persons trust that, in the process, I end up destroying the relationship with that person myself.
Last week, one such psychopath mailed good old OG with email ids that resembled mine and Kanagus. The bloody stalker, who WAS one among us, created fake ids by making a few alterations to our existing email ids and kept mailing OG, destroying his peace of mind for a few days.
The funniest part is that we now know who that cartoon is! Oh my dear stalker, it isn’t difficult to trace you when we have stuffs like IP address, etc available on request from ‘googlemail’. We aren’t as technology illiterate as you are! So it would be highly appreciable if you could stop all your dramas, otherwise you would have to pay a huge price for it. This way of impersonating someone and sending mails from fake ids come under cyber harassment and there are even laws to take care of it. It wouldn’t be nice to see you behind bars at this young age.
I have a request to all you guys out here. I do have a few ids, but all my communications would reach you guys only through one id – firstname.lastname@example.org (V–I–double M–triple U). Please do not respond to emails that come from any other ids that might be similar to the one mentioned. I have nothing to do with such emails and those are activities of a demented person who has stooped down to unimaginable levels to gain attention. Moreover, considering the current impression I had created for myself, any cranky emails that come from ids that are similar to mine are bound to create a misunderstanding among you all.
While we are still at that what-am-I-afraid-of topic, someone recently came down from Mumbai and gifted me with something that I have always been afraid of – A BOOK ! Though she mentioned it was a book by some Rusk or Bond, I still had my doubts if it would be a biography on Salman Khan ! Can you imagine, gifting a book, that too for me ! That’s like the only best way to offend me !!! Yeah, yeah, it was sweet of her, something that was totally unexpected and blah blah !! Jokes apart, we had a wonderful time together and I never thought it would go that well. The other highlight of the meet was our 2 hrs argument on whats the difference between purple and violet !!
Oh oh, last week I happened to meet another devil too. It was one helluva meeting; we had one hour in hand, and we spent nearly half an hour trying to click each other’s pictures. Every time we insert a new pair of batteries, the camera would go poof !!! LOL. We also made a few innocent onlookers go all crazy our antics. Again, never thought it would go so well and how I wish we had some more time to spare. And guess what, even that person scared the crap out of me just before leaving !!! I cant mention that over here and make this an A-rated blog !
FLASH NEWS : OG’s love of his life, Ms. Z, is revealed ! Her name is Rajamma ! For more details, check out this post of his and then the comments.
