The Conversation

16 Mar

One of my best friends, I’ll call him R since I dont want to use his real name, Rajagopal.

Most of the times we have normal conversations. Sometimes though it proceeds like the one below..

His better half pcr-rules was in the USA and we were meeting for lunch…it also happens to be R’s birthday.

Me: So how goes it? Ready for lunch??

R: Had a heavy breakfast…So, Pr is coming back next week. How long does it take to travel from the new Airport?

Me: It takes an hour. So anything special you are doing on your B’day?

R: She is coming in on Luftansa..somehow her routing is through Washington DC…dont know why…

We order food…and R continues

R: Inge paare (in Tamil)…once she reaches she’ll take at least 1 hour to come outside illiya? Customs, Immigration and all that stuff

Me: Ya, Ya (food has arrived by now)

R: She also doesnt have much time in Nashville..its work work work..

Me: Hmmm…

R: Buses from the International Airport they stop near the house…but sometimes they dont…

Me: Okay cool…

R: Heres her schedule (proceeds to retrieve pcr’s schedule on mail)…

Me: More Garlic Bread?

R: No thanks. So I think it will be minimum 2 AM by the time she gets home…(all the time reading the schedule on the phone)

Me: !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

R: So I dont think I’ll have any sleep on the day she returns… so hows things with you?

Me: !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

…and then theres the ongoing battle he has with his fingernails..but thats another post…

    My laugh of the day!
    He-Who-Shall-Not-Be-Named is either terrified of his wife or is just tired of picking up after himself. Maybe he just misses her especially since she rules the house maybe he is feeling the lack of luuuuve(or rules 😉 )

    How are the exams coming along? We made a trip to NYC to walk around after SAT and end of Spring Break. The school district has cancelled 2010 Spring Break much to my relief and to the kids disgust and consternation 😀

    wonder who ordered the food that day?
    If the stewart had directly asked him then he would say like this,

    1. One direct flight with no connecting ones in btwn
    2. One checkin ticket with the seat pass.
    3. As part of dessert, Terminal number plus cab driver’s phone number, No custom checks, no immigration checks.
