Thought for the day: I'm a psychic amnesiac. I know in advance what I'll forget. -Michael McShane
Do you ever stop to think why just the ‘exteriors’ make us happy, without our really looking into the interiors? Why do we go with face value most of the time?
For example, whether it’s flats or furniture or people, how often do you scrape the surface to see what’s beneath that exterior? That lovely flat might have a leaking ceiling above the false ceiling, the polished furniture might have holes and termites inside the wood. Or, scrape the wall and the bundle of wires ready to catch fire would be a real,err,’shocker’.
Or, take cars- how thrilled we are to see the body of one of the big brands, be it a
And, best of all: people- does Miss Charming, that symbol of pulchritude (lissome/buxom babe, in cruder terms) really have the same smiling interior as she does on the exterior? Beneath that dazzling exterior, might be hidden a rotten interior,na?(Touchwood, I haven’t come across any, err, extreme cases as yet). Or, the other way round, for gals: How many times does that tall, dark, handsome n polite guy, finally turn out to be just tall, dark and hands?
I think it’s just as important to see the inner beauty as it is to see the outer part, which is why, perhaps, they say ‘beauty is not just skin deep’…grin..anyway, those were just some passing thoughts which came to mind during a rare few idle moments this week. What do you think? How many times have you analyzed a person this way?
Seinfeld had me ROFL in one of his episodes a few days back. He goes “ Laundry day is the only exciting day in the life of clothes. Clothes spend most of their lives waiting in the closet, in the hamper, in the drawer. There are shirts in your house going, "He never picks me." The washing machine is the nightclub of clothes. It's dark, bubbles happening, they are all kind of dancing around. The shirt grabs the underwear. "Come on, babe, let's go..."
Taking that further, what do you think the following would say:
1. The sock(s).
2. The handkerchief
3. The trousers
4. The baniyans
5. The towel
6. The pillowcase
7. Anything else that you put in the washing m/c.
I also wondered what clothes would be feeling in our traditional ‘slap/beat with the bat’ kind of washing, by Bais(maids)/ at dhobighats? Interesting topic, na?
This one's too funny,not to share with you.From rediff ishare. Check it out.The curryandricegirl
- There was this blonde.(hahaha). She saw a sign saying "Wet Floor." So she did.
- One day a small boy was at school. In Social Studies class his teacher was talking about peoples last names, about how in the old days their last name used to be their occupation. She gave examples like Baker, which meant they where a baker for a living, Miller meant that person worked in a mill, and so on. Then the little boy raised his hand and the teacher said "Do you have an example for the class?" He said " Not really, more of a question." "Well what's your question?" the teacher asked. "Well," said the little boy, "What did John Hancock do for a living?" (Kids today are too inquisitive, na?)
- Have you ever noticed the mannequins in the store have the natural look, the bra-less look. They have a sweater on with little points. Why would I buy a sweater that can't keep a mannequin warm? -Elayne Boosler (That one's a comment, but, I found it hilarious)
Till next time, keep smiling.
