Smartass becomes Jackass – a 55er

December 18, 2009

To impress a hottttt girl at the billing counter of a DVD store :

“You are about to purchase the worst movie of the decade”

The girl looks at the Paa DVD in my hand and retorts :

“Better than watching pirated movies, anytime!”

I remained totally speechless and displayed my trademark ‘smile de embarrassment’ :

“Eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee !!!”

——————————————————————————————————————————————————————-

I have been getting a lot of complaints lately stating that I am going the Indyeah way of churning out loooong posts ! First of all, I don’t write that long 😀 😀 😀 And secondly, all her long posts makes sense while most of mine doesn’t 😉

So, I dedicate this post for those of you who have had a problem in reading my long posts and for those who generally do not find enough time these days to read anyones blog 😉 Well, not sure if you are going to still read it, but seriously, cant make it shorter than this !!! Now, no more complaints, ok? 😀 😀 😀 😀

Speaking of 55 –ers, I am glad Poonam decided to include a category to recognize the Best 55 er posts in the upcoming Avant Garde Bloggie Awards. No! Its not for nominating this post or any of my previous efforts. Infact, to include my kind of 55-ers, Poonam has to create a separate category – Best Nonsense in 55 words 😀 😀

There are quite a few bloggers out there who come up with outstanding 55ers, which I can only of dream of. I am glad that those posts are getting recognized now and heres a sincere ‘best of luck’ for all the bloggers participating in the category.

And before I end, I now understand what people have been telling me. Gosh, I seriously need an editor !! kahaan se … kahaan tak !!! In OGs words, sheeeshu !!! 😀 😀 😀

    Basically you were having fun at the video store that has helped you put off all the complaints.

    That’s trying to kill two birds with one stone but failing to hit none 😉

    55 fiction can be real fun. May be I need to write one sometime soon 😀

    Have fun!!

    Cheers!!

    • December 18, 2009 3:08 am

      LOL, having fun at the video store ??? that look almost killed me ! 😀

      Yeah, you can write your 55 fiction in ur usual three parts style 😉

      A literary work will be considered 55 Fiction if it has:
      1. Fifty-five words or less (A non-negotiable rule)
      2. A setting,
      3. One or more characters,
      4. Some conflict, and
      5. A resolution. (Not limited to moral of the story)
      6. The title of the story is not part of the overall word count, but it still can’t exceed seven words.

      • December 20, 2009 7:14 am

        🙄 When did you get into all this? Why did you become like this? I can see some changes ever since ur marriage was confirmed. Come on dude, cheer up… get back to writing nonsense that people (ME) understand! 😦

        Vim : Thats because you have been ‘honestly’ following my blog only lately. This is my 5th attempt at 55-ers !! 😀 😀 😀

  6. December 18, 2009 8:35 am

    The name of the post should be

    A 55er & some more 250 words!!! 😀 😀 😀

    Vim : No mood to change ! Hmmpphh 😛 😛 😛

    I am so so so happy that the So called Hottt Girl had hotter brains 😀 😀 😀 because those who give unsolicited advice deserve such treatment only!! 😛 😛 😛

    Vim : I warned her ! she must have thought of my advice when she watched the movie ! 😀

    Specially people who open their mouth with any kind of advice only if the girl is hot or cute!! 😀

    Vim : LOL. what to do !! Ab to aadat si hain mujhko aise jeene mein !!! 😀 😀 😀

    In fact if you have to be such a saint u shud request the DVD wala to stop keeping bad & pirated movies but you won’t do that na, he/ she am sure isn’t hottt 😀 😀 😀

    Vim : There are no shes there and Im not interested in hes. !! 😀

    Errrr….your rog is getting on to me!!! My comment here is as big as your post now!!

    and wait, these are the rules of a 55 er fiction :

    A literary work will be considered 55 Fiction if it has:
    1. Fifty-five words or less (A non-negotiable rule)
    2. A setting,
    3. One or more characters,
    4. Some conflict, and
    5. A resolution. (Not limited to moral of the story)
    6. The title of the story is not part of the overall word count, but it still can’t exceed seven words.

    and it falls under all the categories !! 😀 😀

    1. 55 words
    2. yes, a DVD store.
    3. 2 characters; me and the girl
    4. conflict. yes, a huge one !
    5. and do you want a better resolution than my embarassment at the end 😉
    6. Just 3 words !
