Hey friends my first piece 0f w0rk here in the f0rum...with all the negative speculati0ns ar0und...wanted s0me break, s0 wr0te this :D
T0day is a special day. Actually a very special day. And why is it s0 special? Because after m0nths 0f t0rture, finally, I am g0ing 0n a date, 0h thank y0u G0d!! Well, n0t exactly a date, blind date. S0 what?? A date's a date isn't it?
Well, t0 any0ne wh0 d0esnt kn0w what a blind date means exactly, here is the inside inf0. When a l0ser cant make any0ne g0 head 0ver heels f0r him, he asks his best friend t0 find an0ther l0ser wh0 is g0ing thr0ugh the same pr0blem-it may be s0me0ne fr0m the same 0r the 0pp0site sex, n0 0ne kn0ws what t0 expect these days, and yes, asks t0 arragnge a date f0r the tw0 l0sers and discuss h0w g00d the wine is. Seri0usly, its the best platf0rm f0r th0se wh0 want t0 be a wine expert. Ah yes, at last they might even pr0mise t0 keep in t0uch which they d0nt as n0 0ne, n0t even a l0ser, wants an0ther l0ser t0 be their partner, d0 they? Well n0t me at least. And 0f c0urse it a blind date s0 y0u d0nt kn0w wh0 exactly c0uld be turning up f0r the evening.
S0 acc0rding t0 the plan I asked my best friend t0 arragnge f0r a blind date f0r me clearly stating that it sh0uld be a he, n0 0ne kn0ws what t0 expect these days.
"Khushi Kumari Gupta", she exclaimed, which was n0thing unusual, "I have run 0ut 0f pe0ple n0w", still -n0thing unusual. In fact there was 0nly 0ne thing that was unusual ab0ut my best friend and that was her name. She said she was b0rn in a h0spital situated 0n the t0p 0f a hill in Nepal. As "maya" meant l0ve in Nepali, her parents kept her name Hillmaya. Weird.
Then after l0ts and l0ts 0f persuassi0n Hillmaya finally arranged a blind date f0r me. See, t0ld ya, n0thing unusual. Me and my blind date were t0 meet at 7p.m 0n a fancy little resturant d0wnt0wn, table n0.30. Even a l0ser has a dignity t0 maintain, phew!!
Everything was perfect and 0n schedule. I was t0 leave my 0ffice at 5 and my appartment was 0nly a 15 min drive fr0m here. N0 risk 0f getting late f0r Khushi Kumari Gupta.
"Khushi Kumari Gupta snap 0ut 0f y0ur daydreams and finish this up bef0re y0u leave." What?? B0ss wants me t0 finish this pile n0w?? Devi Maiya why are y0u against me and b0ys?? D0nt y0u want t0 see y0ur dev0tee settled d0wn, ever? "I am leaving n0w, g0t a blind date t0night." S0rry, blind date? B0ss?? 0h yea I can t0tally imagine, "Lady, st0p dr00ling, I want y0u t0 finish this dinner n0w!!" 0h yea!! Best 0f luck p00r lady!!
I finally finished the w0rk at 5:30. I kept it in his desk and rushed 0ut. Devi Maiya 30 min behind the schedule already!! I met a c0lleague 0f mine in the elevat0r. "W0rking late Shyam?" I asked. "0h n0", he replied. "I was stuck with a pr0ject which I c0uldnt leave. Actually I am late. G0t a blind date t0night", he grinned. Really? W0w, I live in a w0rld full 0f l0sers.
0ut 0f the elevat0r I reached my car and rushed 0ut 0f the 0ffice. N0t being a busy day, I th0ught 0f speeding up a bit. That's why I was h0rrified t0 see a p0lice cruiser behind me. Haye Devi Maiya y0u really d0 hate me!! I pulled 0ver and a fierce l00king p0liceman came 0ver. "L00k lady I am giving y0u a ticket." Wh0 g0t a ticket 0n a 15-min drive Devi Maiya?? Hmrmphh!! "I w0uld have find y0u extra if I c0uld", he went 0n, "f0r n0w I am late f0r my blind date 0nly because 0f y0u." I l00ked at him-sh0cked. What was it? A blind date day??
I am late, I cant believe I am late. Finally 0utside the resturant and it was 7:30 already. What if he had already left? Then a h0rrible th0ught cr0ssed my mind. What if my date was my b0ss, Shyam 0r that ugly p0liceman? Devi Maiya!! I w0uld surely kill Hillmaya!! Shyam l00ked like a pers0n wh0 w0uld date s0me0ne 0f his 0wn sex, n0 0ne kn0ws what t0 expect these days. The p0liceman? Yuckkk!! And my b0ss? Devi Maiya madad Devi Maiya madad.
I walked in and l00ked at the table n0. 30 . What I saw there, surely left me speechless!! N0 n0 n0t a girl!!
T0 be c0ntinued...
I will update asap. H0w was it??*ducks all the chappals* Thr0w me pair ladies :D Pr0mise I will bring Arnav in the next part :)t
