its 12.30 pm and I have just walked into office. After the regular "hi" "hello" with my boss, I log on to my PC and straight away go to page no. 9, thats where I was yesterday when I left for home. No office mails, no hotmails, no Gmails. My boss has something to say and he is standing right behind me while I am busy going through page 10. This is what happens next:
"Amit"/"haan boss? give me 5 mins"/"are you busy amit?"/"kinda"/"mera mail dekha?"/"which one boss?"/"never mind !". Now he is really interested to know whats there on my screen which is so interesting? (poor fellow). I havent even checked my mails. "Who is this firang?"/"which one boss?"/"the one in chaddi"/"both of them are in chaddis"/"arrey, blue t- shirt, hippy hai kya"/"Boss, he is neither firang nor hippy, he is as much indian as you and me, his name is TheYeti®"/"hmm,banda stylish hai; karta kya hai"/"why boss?"/"just like that"/"JBL ke speakers bechta hai"/"and that gal"/"she is TheOne®"/"dont they have proper names?"/"Boss why dont you read it yourself?,I"ll send you the link"/"no its ok, but just sit a little away from the screen, your nose is almost touching it and if possible, do some useful work"/"ok boss"/ thankfully he turns away from me..unimpressed; most probably because of my description of sam's profession.LOL.
I happily continue reading TheStory® and now, as I have finished reading it till the latest update,I'll go and check my mails.Just in case he throws me out of the office because of my addiction to this site,Sam I am going to run to you for a job.LOL
Sam,Jenny;may god bless both of you with all the happiness and love; and thank you for sharing the wonderful moments with us.

Just curious to know what song you were singing Sam !! Was it "rain rain go away, come again another day..." ? I just thought those little giggly girls might have got surprised seeing a grown up man, topless, behind a lady, singing nursery rhymes in the rain !!!

We were singing (oh God, how embarassing)
Life is Life by Opus at the top of out voices

Life is life (na na na na na na)
Life is life (na na na na na na)

When we all give the power
We all give the best
Every Minute of an hour
Don't think about a rest
When you all get the power
You all get the best

When everyone
gives everything
And every Song
everybody sings
Then it's life

Life is life
Life is life

Great fun!

actually, I did not mean it that way baba. Sam, this is NC's own view of looking at it, not mine. And about the "JBL ke speaker bechta hai" thing, was one of the simplest way I could have described TheYeti to him. And my boss is far from perfect; he still expects me to do some useful work for 8 hrs in a day.

Superb Sam, as always.

Fascinating refreshing bindaas attitude that comes across in all your posts. Wonder how your professors/parents managed you (esp the bombay-poona RX log!!)
