Above post written by my cousin brother when a certain cousin sister was supposed to accompany him for a bike expedition. He intends to blog one day like his cousin sister. So I am posting his first post ( with heavy handed editing ) here.

p.s I would kill to have a colleague like this guy!

deepti: Yay! Thank you. I so knew I could count on the gals for this :p

I don't complain if he canceled the trip. There is an itching in every biker to get on the ride, especially when it is early in the morning. By 12 Noon a biker will not be interested to take his sweetheart(the bike I meant) out.

We have to take care of her softness and complexion you know ;)

That's unfair, silverine! You give us the edited version and don't even link to the original (perhaps even more honest) post? :P

Afrin said...

Heheh, that's funny - am sure your cousin must have been really annoyed. I'd hate to have to cancel a bike trip.

silverine said...

dhanush: Thats news to me! :p

nithin: If you want the truthful,honest, unedited version then he will have to get his own blog :))

afrin: Well it was his fault. No advance intimation or clue! :)

OK, I realise I am not going to be the most popular guy around here after asking, but still... Please tell us the girl in the post was not you. ;)

Amey: I will take a break from the arson and rioting caused due to your query to say "it was indeed me" :p

mathew: Till the cows came home :p

Amey said...

Hmm... in that case, it is always better to be prepared for every eventuality ;)

Reminds me of a school friend of mine. We were both at home in Hyderabad for the winter break during undergrad. As its only a month we were both fulfilling obligations of keeping parents happy by being homebound until it occurred to me at the last moment that we hadn't seen each other in a year, and probably won't see each other for another year if we didn't now. So I gave her a call and said, "Wanna meet?". She said, "Now?!?! I leave in three days and I haven't even begun packing." I said,"Three days of packing? What are you taking back?" She said, "Two suitcases and an airbag. What about you?" I replied, "I leave tomorrow and there's an empty air bag lying around somewhere in which I intend to put stuff tomorrow evening." :)
