A friend of mine once said his girl friend broke up with him because he compared her face to that of the full moon. Incidentally, she happened to be an astronomer`s daughter and knew about the craters on the moon.

I advised the guy to approach her again and speak about the passionate love that he has for her. He was actually madly, truly in love with her. But she being an astronomer`s daughter could see things only through a telescope. And that would mean maintaining a distance…

But after they parted ways, both became restless. The girl would go to her father`s observatory, turn his telescope a little, aim it on her boyfriend and watch his activities. A voyeur, if you know what I mean.

My friend`s love for the girl resulted in he becoming mad. And over a period of time he graduated to being a werewolf. If it were a full moon day, I could guarantee the death of some girl in the vicinity. We weren`t quite sure if he was the guy doing the killing…but he did come home with wet-trousers. We gathered he would gain consciousness as soon as he committed the murder.

He became the butt end of jokes among we friends. But he did not bother. If he were wearing nice clothes, we would call him wear-wolf. And if he were missing, we would ask “Where-wolf?”

Once, we were even introduced to his cousins what-wolves and when-wolves. We loved talking to them and learning about their experiences.

All this happened long time ago when the World believed in the existence of werewolves (actually, a movie called ‘Legend of the Werewolf` had just released and everybody was kicked about the stupid movie).

I hope my friend is still alive and happy with his ladylove. And I also hope, he doesn`t eat garlic…coz if he is…I am sure…his bark would be worse that his bite!
