Valentines’ Day and the Girl@Disco

I may have written earlier that I don’t give much importance to days like ‘new year’ or “valentines’ day”. But that has never stopped me from taking part in celebrations.. or even making it an occasion to make someone feel special.

I pay attention to small details and I haven’t (yet) failed to make the special (ones) feel special.

But there is one person whom I should (and I do) consider most special: “myself”. (Call me a narcissist now)

As I do always, I treated myself with a book. Of course, wrapped in RED. :)

I haven’t started with the book yet (except for the two paragraphs in the first page). I am advised ordered (;)) to take the book seriously, read it thoroughly, without missing the hints, enjoying the characters developing etc. Looking forward to reading it (soon-ish).

The next day Jo, Lu, ‘she’ and I went to a party/disco. I took a break from dancing and stood next to the bar.

A girl approached me smilingly (of course, she wanted something). She asked me whether she can have a gulp of beer from my bottle. I smiled and gave her the nearly-empty bottle. When she returned it after taking a mouthful, I gestured it was for her and she looked surprised.

I asked her whether she wanted a beer (the only thing I ever said). She said she didn’t have money (why should she say that?). I bought a her one. She thanked me, hugged me and then I walked to my friends.

Was I being too nice? or too naive? Who cares… as long as I felt good about what I did?

Signing off, Sands.

PS: On a different note – my hair is getting compliments. The people who even ‘hate’ men having long hair seem to like me. Wonderful.

'ordered' at minimum.
given that it is great it would be reasonable to 'command' you ;)
(high expectations on the book. but i am sure it can easily meet them.)

I cant picture you with a long hair. When r u going to post ur foto in the new look

Smita said...

I totally agree with you when you say "what difference it makes if giving the bottle too her made you happy". Sometimes it is good to not judge a person & an incident!

I also love gifting myself ;-)

BTW who is She?? :D

Sands | കരിങ്കല്ല് said...

I am never going to post my photo (mudiyanaaya puthran) here.. Strictly illegal.


Being non-judgemental is good.. - in many occasions.

and She is someone I am fancying.... ;)

Nothing official about it, Aha!

Nice scenario of a guy buying a beer @disco. Now take this scenario:

Guy at a railway station. An ordinary looking shabbily dressed person approaches the guy and tells that he has lost his purse and has no money to buy a ticket to go back home. What would typically the guy do?

a) Shoo him away before even listening
b) Shoo him away after listening
c) give money and oblige
d) buy a ticket in person and oblige.
e) any other options?

Sands | കരിങ്കല്ല് said...

I'd prefer to believe him and usually take option 4 if the ticket costs not too much. Otherwise, I'll give him a share for his fare....

I might be cheated... but in general people are good. (or I believe so)..


Hiran said...

Nothing in particular. Just that how people would react in different situations.

The scenario which I gave happened to me thrice and all three times I opted for (b). All three times, I did ask myself, what is he is truly in need?

I may opt the same, the fourth time also.
