Friends n all that jazz


When you're a bachelor, forced or natural,out here in Dubai, the most communicative people are,not friends,not colleagues,but,the ever-smiling waiters(Or,should I say 'waiter de'), who go 'ohhh, itne din baad-kaise hain aap?'(oooh...after so many days...how are you?), and,they'll end up inquiring about where you took your vacation, how it went, how the family is,et al. I mean,I'm sure they'll forget it all after 10 minutes,but,at that moment,in a concrete jungle,it's nice to see that someone has the time for such pleasantries,na??
-----
Speaking of people(Pun intended), I wonder how people can talk nineteen to the dozen, while speaking, unmindful of that gravy dripping out from the gap in their mouths when they speak,unmindful of that noodle hanging out- why do they love talking so much, I wonder?Give me a silent eater anyday(Just like me!Ahem!), who makes polite conversation,but,only after finishing the morself of foods in their mouths.Anyway,to each his or her own,I guess.

That reminds me,I must update my inspirations blog....and,my jokes blog...and write on the ever-inviting BUF topics...quite a handful,err,keyboardfull of writing to be done...how nice-something to look forward to.

Am the silent eater types too.
Have you noticed how ppl manage conversations (aka gossip) at reception buffets, balancing plate and cell in one hand and eating and talking?

Amazing.
