Monday morning smiles…

19Jun06

This week’s Monday morning smiles theme is Weird Questions. Some questions which seem perfectly logical but weird and wacky at the same time.

This one, I’ve always wondered. When people say they are back to square one, what actually is the square of one?

——————– 

Coffee time. A, was back from US and was having a taste of all our usual coffee-time grapevine gossips which she missed all these days. And when I passed one of my trademarks comments, she said “Kishore, You have not changed even one bit”.

Well, this set me thinking. And I asked her “The earth continues to be round, right?”
“Yes”, she replied.
“The Earth continues to rotate on its axis?”
“Yes”
“The Earth continues to revolve around the sun?”
“Yes”
“The Sun continues to rise in the East?”
“Yes”
“So, none of it has changed, right?”
“Right”
“Then why should I change?

She gave me a no-use-talking-to-you stare.

——————– 

And on the same day, continuing with the same streak of chuckles, A, was talking about her eating experiences and said “Most weekends I go to that place. I love Chinese”. With a bland expression I looked at her and said “Never knew you were a cannibal.” She shook her head as if waking from a nap and snorted “What do you mean?”

“You said you eat Chinese?” I replied. Taking a sip of her hot coffee, she gave me a cold stare.
