The hairy trust

As usual, a small smile for you… (just for you) :)

Yesterday was my birthday. Birthdays have never been that important to me. But I am starting to think different. It would really be fun to celebrate them. Well, I don’t know if I would throw a belated-b’day-party this year. But for sure I am doing it from the coming year onwards (of course, not belated)

On Saturday, I had been to a bookshop (my weakest moments are always in bookshops, I just can’t resist the temptation). And I wasn’t alone, a real voracious reader friend of mine was with me.

I picked up a book which I had been wanting to read since quite sometime ago. I asked my friend (who had already read that book, and loved it too) whether I may buy that book. She, who loves that book, to my surprise, told me not to. I cannot deny that her reply came as a bit of surprise to me.

But since she being one of the most straight-forward persons and I being the most naive* person, I couldn’t see the hidden design she had, for which she stopped me from taking the book. I didn’t think much of it and picked some other book which she recommended.

On Sunday, at midnight (technically Monday), I opened my gift from her and it was that book – the very book – but a much better print/edition than the one I was to pick. I was just so happy and was even laughing at my inability to connect things! :)

Wuthering HeightsAnd the book is “Wuthering Heights”. I just started reading it (just a couple of pages). The language is really good. I am not yet in a position to tell anything else about the book. I shall, later.

I have a day with nice weather and tons of things to do.
So, signing off,



PS: And no, there isn’t anything hairy about trust. I was talking with a friend about trust. I compared trust with hair. It takes a long time to grow it, and just a few moments are enough to cut it down. (And yes, the comparison was appreciated :) ) [The title was to attract readers :) ]

PPS: * well, don’t take ‘the naive thing’ too serious. ;)

Belated Birthday Wishes! (Hidden agenda is to get invited for the belated party. :-) I can't come that far anyways.)
I also liked Wuthering Heights. It's unfortunate that the author didn't write anymore books.

Happy ageing :-)

Janmadinashamsakal.. i thought it was tomorrow.. i always had the confusion of whose bday is first.. u or cheelu.

btw. one thing not true about hair and trust is that.. each day about 20 human hair falls downs from his head ( read somewhere).. but thats not the case with trust [:-P]. bad analogy though..

Of course I come first.. then She.. Right?

Anyway, you are still younger right? :)

And thanks... both for the wishes and for the terrific hair-losing thing.. (but we have new hairs too... perhaps more than 20 a day)
