Burnt by Cold!

The outgoing winters always have a track record of leaving me fumbling with a runny nose or a sore throat. As expected, it happened this time around too. But what happened next was un-thought of earlier. In one of my impulsive phases, I shot a question at a few friends.

The answers left me speechless and also glad that for a change, I caught a cold which didn’t affect my brain. Or did it?

The question was : If I cut my nose, will it help me get rid of my cold?

Person 1 : “You surely won’t be able to breathe.”

  • That sounds like my answer¬†– 90% of the time. But I was in the 10% bucket right now. So that’s not coming from me today, at least.

Person 2 : “I tried to Google it. But I couldn’t find anything concrete.”

This is my favorite answer! From my favorite person! And for you, all I’ll say today is :

Person 3 : “No. Mad woman!”

  • Okay! I got you. Jeez. Relax. I am not really going to cut my nose off, irrespective of how much I’d like it to be sharper and longer. But, nope, not cutting it off!

Person 4 : “Drink some ginger juice. Steam some water. It’ll help get rid of the cold.”

  • Nah, this one ain’t a doctor. But this one worries about me, sometimes a little too much to get the humour in the question, probably! Just saying. ūüėČ

Person 5 : “You could try it. If it works out, let me know as well. I’ll join the club.”

  • Someone help me out now! It’s important this one joins my club! She is after all, my sister! Yes, the craziness runs in the blood!

Person 6 : “Definitely!”

  • Surprised, I asked the person another question. “What do I do with the blood?” Yes, there was a response. “Pass it off as pomegranate juice and give it to someone to drink!” Speechless!

What would you say to me? Go ahead, sharpen your wit, improve your humour and answer me.

Graciously Yours!

P.S. : The cold’s gone now. The nose is still there. I wonder if Voldemort is jealous of me. ūüėõ

Coupon-ed Love!

Sister  : Oh. My. God.

Me ¬†: What’s wrong?

Sister : You bought me all the things I asked for?

Me : Isn’t that what you wanted?

Sister : I did. But I never thought you would actually do it! I gave you the list expecting you would buy at least a couple of items from the list. That would have been more than enough for me.

Me : So you are not happy about this? I don’t have a return option for most of these you know.

Sister : You are not returning any of my gifts. Not the jeans. Or this top. Or that dress. Don’t even think of the watch!

Me :  So the necklace?

Sister : Not even that.

Me : Then stop complaining and enjoy your gifts!

Sister : Thank you! This must have cost you a bomb! I feel really guilty. I want to make it up to you!

Me : But…

Sister : I am not listening to anything. I know you’re really busy and you always have office or this or that to do! But tomorrow we’re going out for dinner. My treat! Your choice.

I thought of the incident from two weeks ago.


Me : It is my sister’s eighteenth birthday! What do I¬†get for her? And what all do I drop? She has a long list of demands!

Friend : Why do want to drop things out of the list?

Me : Because she has expensive taste and I have limited means!

Friend : Heard of online shipping?

Me : Heard of expensive stuff still being¬†expensive in online shopping? I am just waiting for one of those¬†day sales to come my way! But the good stocks don’t even last long enough for me to get to the shopping cart!

Friend : Those¬†deals can be really painful to deal with! I was up at 7 am the other day huddled in front of the laptop with my mother to buy one of those funky watches for my brother. He had been eyeing it for a while now. First it took us five¬†minutes of wait time to even access the website. And then after we gained access, it was out of stock by the time we managed to locate it on the website! How can so many people be after the same watch at 7 in the morning? It’s hard to believe but I bought him the very same watch at¬†an even lower price the next day!

Me : How did you manage that?

Friend : I came across a website 27coupons.com. They have the most amazing deals for online shopping! I tried their deals for Jabong.com.

Me : Really? And they’re always available?

Friend : Yes. They have deals expiring after a certain time period but they will always have something new on offer. Something new and amazing!


Sister : What are you thinking?

Me : Oh! Nothing!

Sister : Tomorrow night is final then?

Me (speaking) : Yes. I’m fine with it.

Me (thinking) : She doesn’t really need to know I got¬†discounts as high as 60% on international brands¬†and covering products from watches, apparel, jewelry, et al! I’ll tell her about http://www.27coupons.com/stores/jabong.com/.¬†Later.

Graciously Yours!

P.S. : This is a sponsored post but the views expressed are genuine. It is so much easier to utilize these coupons rather than wait for the sales.

Makeover, huh?

I am being driven to an unknown location. And I need your help!

Urgent.

My kidnappers (my lovely friend and a lovelier sibling) are taking me to get a pre-birthday makeover!

Thankfully, they’re kind enough to not tie, gag and blindfold me! They’re ruthless though! They won’t tell me anything. Anything. At. All.

So while I find out more about this trip roadside-Sherlock-Holmes-style, and wonder about Benedict Cumberbatch you could tell me what you want to change in my blog! Is that too much to ask of you? A page here, a panel there, color change, font change, new topic, old post revival, anything, everything!

Or you could just tell me how much you love the blog!

Graciously Yours!

P.S. Is there a way I can read their minds? That would be fun! And evil.
