The underbelly of the celebrity world

"Did Stevie pay for the wine and cheese he ordered?" Mr Singh the grocer asked his partner, also Mr. Singh.

"Stevie who?"

"Stevie Wonder, old chap. "

"Oh, the guy who sings"

"I believe he does, yes. Quite famous, to go by what my cousin says. "

"Cousin? Which one?"

"My cousin. The one you met last month. His name is Mr. Singh, if you recollect"

"Oh that one. Mr. Singh's son. Well what about him?"

"Who? My cousin?"

"No, Stevie Wonder. Did he send in the payment? I am quite worried about these celebrities. Michael Jackson, he died quite penniless, I'm told. Mike Tyson is quite broke. And Stevie Wonder isn't doing too well, according to the grapevine"

"Oh, that's the connection!"

"Connection?"

"Yes. He called up the other night and sang something which I couldn't quite get the significance of. But now, I see all! I don't think we're going to get our money anytime soon"

"Why? What did he sing?"

"I just called to say I'll owe you"

"At least he's decent. The late Michael Jackson told me to beat it"

Hi Naren,

Taking an inspiration from you. I tried to write something humorous. No idea if it is even a fraction as humorous as yours. Do let me know..

These are my Adventures at SBI!
