Fish outta water?

I was sitting, sipping a cuppa garam chai in my cafeteria,when I heard something, which I faintly recogonized as giggles, from the nearby table.
N whom do I see? A Krishna with gopikas -yes a single guy surrounded by 6-7 girls and I couldn’t help but hear their topic of discussion, they were really loud. (So I can’t be accused of eavesdropping)

Can you guess what their topic was? I bet Not in your wildest dreams 'coz they were discussing piercing (yes you heard me right) - nose and ear piercing (to be precise)
-how (gun shot, jeweler..) ,when(when I was 6 ,last month…) and what is the best place in town.
Now had this crowd been entirely a girl gang I would’ve passed it off as jus 'another' of those discussions but seeing a lone guy in their midst piqued my curiosity so I slowly watched the guy (of course out of the corner of my eye) -he seemed thoroughly embarrassed, was squirming in his seat and making all kinds of facial expressions but since he was given a royal ignore, finally he chose the safest option out, started making calls on his cellphone!
Boy! My heart just went out to him –
which reminds me of other such similar situations :

cute girl trying to impress mr.John Abraham look-alike with her dancing abilities and the footwear snaps

girlfriend A's usual mail to her boyfriend B bitching 'bout the boss and she accidentally sends it to the boss himself (actually heard this happen to my friend)

Y saying not so pleasant things about a person Z blissfully unaware of Z's presence behind.

dial a number by mistake you din't mean to –now you can’t say "well I wasn’t meaning to talk to you"

N this one featured in the Hyderabad times takes the cake -
women sporting backless top and the bet is on "what if the clasp comes off!"

***Shudder***hope we dont ever land up in such embarassing spots.

One embarrasing situation I landed in was when I was in the office loo and my phone suddenly rang. It was an interview call and the person asked me where I was and whether he can take the interview...I told him I was in the pantry. Never knew there were others behind me laughing. Gosh that was one very stupid moment.

What about a crowd of people who lead you to imagine flatulence is contagious and then you end up waiting in the corner for someone to yawn?

Body piercing is hardly a girl thing! Even during Chanakya's time, men had pierced ears. Did I tell you abt the cutest guy who has a nose stud? Carries it off so well..yummy! Lol..I digress as always Swathi.

And I have dialled the 'wrong' no and said I didnt mean to call them!
Oh backless top..err..yeah better be careful abt that one!

Well, there is a price to be paid for being the only Kishen amidst the Gopis! :))))

But... ummm... discussions of piercings... that is too much of a price to pay, me thinks! :)

talking about someone unaware that he is right behind has happened not once, but times too many with me..:-)
And the boss email thing has happened too once with a friend of mine.. Thankfully, the boss was too stupid to understand since there was no proper noun used.. But then arent all bosses that?:-)
