Thought for the day:
"Oh!Let's go check it out tomorrow"
"(In a car): That's the new Mitsubishi model going by. There's hardly one or two in Dubai.It's got a....and a ....."
" Is that a new phone? which model? What are it's specialities?"
" Oh,yes..this is the new Nokia.....Price.....It's got __ GB memory,GPS and email and blah blah blah"
"But,you got a new one just a few months back?"
"Yes,but, I got tired of it"
"How's the share market?"
" I lost....in the recent slide, but, earlier I'd made......blah blah...you know, this share of.....Co...."
"Oh yes...that and the shares of .......will remain steady...blah blah"
"Hey,is that a genuine watch?"
"Of course...I got it from..... for......."
And,that, friends, is why I avoid parties and get-togethers....discussions get so materialistic that I can't stifle my yawns! Not that I grudge these people their conversations,of course- to each his or her own!
Now, imagine this conversation:
"Hey, nice new look to your blog"
"You liked it? But, do check out Poo's new template too..it's great"
"Yes I did...and, aren't you thrilled that Keshi's returned to blogging?"
"Oh,yes. And, did you see Austy's post on sixsentences?"
"Yes- wouldn't have missed it for anything. And, did you see Cyn's latest post?I couldn't help smiling throughout"
"Indeed I did- and, how about Arunima's descriptions of life? Amazing, na?"
"Oh,wow...yes they are...and, how about Aquarius? Her posts almost make me wish I was a Lancaster resident-such a nice peaceful place it seems to be"
"I agree....and.....don't you feel.....writes really well?"
....conversation lasts for 3-4 hours.
And,how about this one:
"Heyyy...I saw your letter in Filmfare...good going, pal."
"Arre, look who's talking- I liked your letter to India Today...that was telling it like it is,to our political arena players,indeed. And,I thoroughly enjoyed your quip of an answer on Open Space last week."
"Really?You noticed that?I didn't think too many people would notice it."
....conversation lasts for 1-2 hours.
Back to reality,man!! As you guessed, the above two conversations are hypothetical.But, they're just the type of talks I'd love to have at a get-together/party. Indeed, a common platform is what is needed for a two-way conversation.
What would you say if you heard about a five star hotel in one of the largest helicopters in the world,called a 'hotelicopter'?With 18 luxurious rooms'for adrenalin junkies seeking a truly unique and memorable travel experience'?
You'd believe, specially since this could happen in the city that dares to dream and achieve it-i.e. Dubai.
But, not yet!!This one was an April Fool joke on Facebook, promoted by a UK Hotel chain....thousands of people joined a group dedicated to the project, when a clip of the hotelicopter was put up. Were you one of them?
Joke for the day:
