Thoughts over tea

Presenting - a blog by Dr. Mahesh Rao,
http://thoughtsovertea.blogspot.com/
Mahesh is a polymath who is a qualified doctor, a successful restaurateur, a connoisseur of wine, coffee and tea, pens, watches and muchh more, an accomplished singer and music afficionado and absolutely superb photographer. He tends to be a bit more serious, intense and deep than I can ever hope to be. Which causes me no end of problems because he is married to my wife's twin sister and thus compared to me, to my disadvantage, in every respect. Even when tasting wine, he tends to stick to half a glass while I prefer to taste it by the bottle. In short, he is every thing I could have been, should have been, would have been, except that I'm not.

His only redeeming feature is that he's a totally sweet guy. He goes totally overboard with the hospitality whenever I visit Mysore and is responsible for more of my waistline inches than any other person, including my mom.

So read that blog and tell him that while he might be more talented, Naren is better looking.

Rads, - Thank you, thank you, thank you. The said twin sister is identical to my immediate superior, except that where the immediate superior tends to scowl a bit upon seeing me, the twin sister smiles, making it easy for me to tell them apart

Wicked :D said...

This is more like a testimonial to your wife....but so sweet...praising her in such a subtle way.
But are you sure the difference stops at the smile????
