Let me set this up for you; I had arrived in Delhi early in the morning and was due to leave for Frankfurt in the night. So as you can imagine it’s was pretty hectic. Between packing, pretending to listen to my parents giving endless advice and collecting my sisters ever longer shopping lists I hardly had time to breathe.But the thing that was bothering me most was I had made a promise to myself about Fiona and not kept it.
Brain1: Dude she is super committed. Plus I don’t want to join the long list of people wagging their tails behind her.
Brain2: Ok, tell that to her the next time she stares at you. At least it will start a conversation.
Brain1: The staring means nothing; there are a lot of girls that look back.
Brain2: Ya, but this is the only one that you wanted to ask out. Doesn’t that mean anything to you?
Brain1: About that, I think she isn’t tall enough.
Brain2: I hope you die alone, no, I know you will die alone.
Brain2: Ok then, go and talk to her.
Brain1: What!!! Are you out of your mind, pun intended.
Brain2: Donate your genitals, seriously there is no point, you obviously won’t ask anyone out and it has been proven over and over again no girl will make the first move.
Brain1: You are right; if I see her again I will go talk to her.
Brain2: Ya sure like you talked to Fiona.
Brain1: Think; something smart, something funny, something that will sweep her off her feet.
Brain2: Please don’t, half the world knows what happened last time.
“I think you are really gorgeous”
Brain1: What now? And stop shaking.
“So..can I have your phone number or email”
‘Well, I am not going to hand my email to anyone. Have we met before? How do you know me’
“I don’t just saw you here”
‘Wow, that’s a bit weird. What’s your name? What do you do?’
Brain1: See I told you it was crazy.
Brain2: Shut up and answere the question.
“My name is .....”
‘Ok, so are you here with your friends? Do have some time now?’
“No, I am just here for some last minute shopping I got a flight tonight. So I have no time.”
Brain2: So you have no time for her, real smooth.
Brain1: It’s the truth.
What followed can only be described as a pregnant pause (see Coupling ).
Brain2: Well done Harishchandra. Now what?
Brain1: think, think, think.
“Ok maybe you can give me your name and a few details and I can find you on Orkut then if you don’t like my profile you can block me or something”
‘Ok that can work’
Brain1: That went okay.
Brain2: I am just happy you didn’t ask for where she bought those shorts or shirt or something similar to last time.
For those wondering what happened:
“Es gibt eine Menge sexy Hündinnen in der Welt. Sie nicht Ihre Zeit über ein”
And of course I still have to work on Fiona.
