So what's up?

Another hectic week coming to a close...great fun- I luv to be busy, rather than to be idle, anyday.:) Destressing at the end of the day is great!And, waking up refreshed, even more so!:)

" Want to punish a salesman? Put him in a corner  and tell him to keep quiet for half an hour. It'll be sheer torture for him". A friend of mine made this comment when we  had this cozy gathering at a friend's party....ole friends, from the days of my first job...it's always nice to think of those days. To return to salesmen- one more friend was going to turn up, and he's a salesman. And, once he comes, we all can only listen. He didn't fail us this time,too. From Navratri in Ahmedabad to the cold in Canada to hairfall due to water quality in Sharjah to everything under the sun. Start a topic, and he speaks for 15 mins on it, minimum, guaranteed..:) It reminded me of some other friends,too...who're in Sales. And, it's so true. They have the gift of talking, just like Radio Jockeys, and they love it.:)

I'm really getting hooked to Doordarshan's National Network all over again-just like in the Eighties. The current craze- a morning program called 'Aaj Savere'- it comes at 6 AM in Dubai, so Indian time is 730 AM. They have an interview with a specialist everyday. Yesterday, it was a Wellness Consultant, today it was a Liver specialist. In very simple terms, the program proceeds with the cheerful interviewer lady having a nice tete-a-tete with the specialist. And, explaining in simple terms the topic of the day.

Interesting part of the show today- did you know coffee in moderation is good for the liver?And, excess of Vitamin A is not?

Joke for the day:
One day, during a lesson on proper grammar, the teacher asked the class for a show of hands from those who could use the word "beautiful" in the same sentence twice.

First, she called on Little Mona, who responded with, "My father bought my mother a beautiful dress and she looked beautiful in it."

"Very good, Mona," replied the teacher. She then called on Michael. "My mommy planned a beautiful banquet and it turned out beautifully," he said.

"Excellent, Michael!"

Then, the teacher called on Little Johnny...

Last night, during supper, my sister told my father that she was pregnant, and he said, "Beautiful, just f*%@# beautiful!"

Till the next post, keep smiling!:)

I disagree on the salesman part...my hubby was a salesman and he is not so talkative...I had to literally force him to speak.
