Third, Free Birthday Post

How years fly by. Back then I was a dashing 30 year old, but now I am reduced to a weary 33-year-old man. Though dark complexioned, back then I was a heart throb amongst the dark skinned, relatively short Dravidians but now am caught in a vortex of tall, fair & handsome Aryans.

I am referring to an incident which happened in 2006 – a girl reader from Gurgaon mailed me saying January 31st was her birthday and she wanted an article dedicated to her. The confident girl hadn`t even sent her photograph, which would have helped me decide (We are suckers for profiles pics…aren`t we?). But the magnanimous I wrote an article titled A Birthday Post for Himani Sahni on January 31, 2006.

The problem with such high value birthday gifts is that, the receiver gets a taste of it. So on January 29, 2007 – exactly a year later – when I was struggling with the Cricket World Cup 2007`s special for Yahoo….I spotted a mail in my inbox and have given the text on the side in bigger font and darker color (just for emphasis):

It is my Birthday tomorrow and I would again like to request you to write something really hilarious and interesting…..I know I am being over demanding but wanna open my eyes with a big smile!

Not too sure about your work schedule….so if things are tough at your end and you are time stressed then pls feel free to reject the request. I would not mind:-)

Can somebody have the guts to place a second free request? Well, some people do.
Can somebody have the guts to refuse a second free request from girls? Well, some people don`t.

The disadvantage of being a descendant of Mahabharat`s Karna`s family is that you continue giving. So on January 31, 2007, I wrote another birthday article for this Gurgaon based girl and named it And then, one year flew by.

The second article did raise my wife`s suspicion. How could a married man dedicate two posts to the same girl? It didn`t matter that this girl was 2500 kilometers away – she stayed in Delhi and worked in Gurgaon and I was in Chennai!

Maybe that`s why when months later I told Rekha that we were moving to Gurgaon, she was like: “Huh? Anything to do with this Gurgaon friend of yours?”

Anyway, coming back to the issue at hand….today is January 31, 2008 and I haven`t yet got a mail from this Gurgaon girl asking for a blog post dedicated to her. Familiarity does breed contempt. Now don`t you go around shouting: “Familiarity also breeds children!”

Happy Birthday Friend!

    Me! Me!! *shamless plug and all that, but seriously I mean this is too good an op to just be silent, and not let you have the pleasure of “mocking” me! *

    😀

  2. “If you are a pretty girl (aged 22-30…what the hell… let me increase it to 35) and your birthday is fast approaching, please get in touch with me. You could get a free birthday post!” Hmmm.. I hereby do the advance booking! My birthday is on 8th May… 🙂 he heee…

  3. o lord, that was way too early in the morning, even for the teeny sensible part of the comment-pitch!

    Damage done I suppose, but sure, I apply for a bunch of other interesting yet completely vain reasons.
    You do know the date don’t you? 🙂

  4. Hey 33 years old kelewa… you are desperately waiting for that gorgeous pee nut aunty/girl/semi aunty to request you for a post. I think the probability of she being busy/forgot u is directly proportional to u being vetty/remembering her…

    Do turn back and see before mailing her or meeting her in that juice shop, your wife might be with a broom stick…

    anyways… belated wishes for that aunty/girl/semi aunty…

  5. AT RADS AND PUSHKALA: This platform sure seems like hunting grounds now. Pity, Ouchmytoe isn’t a ladies exclusive. Wouldn’t be nice if when men typed in http://www.ouchmytoe.com in their browser I were able to spot the gender and display a message ‘Sorry! Ouchmytoe is a ladies exclusive. Why don’t you try visiting some other blog or get a sex change operation done!’

    And NOOOO I don’t know the dates so please pass them on.
