Slightly inebriated post

Howdy, folks. This is Monsieur Shenoy reporting from the flight deck at 36,000 feet over Mysore. The corpore sano is at sea-level of course, but the mens sana is flying, owing to a liberal dosage of fine single malt whisky. These things happen. The mechanistic cause is the purchase of a flight ticket on the 0610 am flight to Bangalore by yours truly.

The missus woke up first to the alarm at 4 am.

Missus: Naren, why are you leaving so early? You'll be in bangalore before 8. Surely, even you cant have any work that early.

Me: No, I thought I would start early.

Missus: You mean you decided to ruin my sleep just so that you could go to Bangalore a little earlier than usual.

Me: Well......

Missus: Naren, you are an idiot


I found that I could not challenge this simple conclusion. I confess. C'est la vie, as they say in Punjabi, or perhaps french, i can never tell.

Among other things, I must confess that I am missing the wife and kids. The former I love with a passion words cannot begin to express. (yes, she's probably reading this). The latter, well, they're my brats.

Glad to see that you managed to locate the caps lock key, sethji. Agree with the others - the tweets were hilarious and merit a blog post by themselves. :D

Naren, where is this twitter account of yours? I've been looking at http://twitter.com/NarendraShenoy for months, and now it seems I've been missing something.
BTW C'est la vie or say love ye? Which one is Punjabi? You said both of them.

You were literally and figuratively high, eh? Envy.

Vivek said...

C'est la vie in punjabi!
:D
Missing home eh?
Whiskey makes you rise to 36000 feet?!
:D

I'm highly offended. It's not just "C'est la vie" in saddi Punjabi. It's "OYE! C'est la vie, OYE!" in a delightfully high pitched tone, even if you're sighing. A sentence is incomplete without the beloved "Oye". Plisss to take care from now on, oye. Thankee.

Partho said...

@lavanya : Thankee. Though it was shenoyn and I had to search around quite a bit even with your tip. As a byproduct of which I'm now following you on twitter too. Ppronto.

I found your blog through Mysore Blog Park - and what a find it is!! Now I have some great reading to look forward to over the next couple of days/weeks, as I catch up with all your posts. All you husbands are cut from the same cloth - all bark and no bite (and deafening barks they are!)I have provided the wifely perspective in my latest post!
