A completely 'satisfactory' post!

Me: "Lets go get some chinese, I'm starving"
Friend: "hmmmm... ok"

it was 0 deg F (-18 deg C) outside and we went in our PJs to get it - there were 2 jackets worn but I forgot the gloves! Hands and everything else was frozen! Glad I was not driving.

20 minutes and 2 stops later, the food was in the house.

Friend: "Man, when the fealla said 'large', he really meant large! The quantity of this food is amazing"
Me: "No kidding. And the food is heaped into this large container. This reminds me of college days. Loads of junk Chinese food at night with Pepsi. The only thing missing is...."

Friend: "A glass of daaru"
Me: "Not just any daaru, it has to be Old Monk rum. Say, we have not had OM right?"

Friend: " No. I didn't think we get it here"
Me: "We should ask someone to get it from India"

Friend: "In this economy, everyone is going back"
Me (laughing and opening a 2nd can of Pepsi): "You are right"

Friend: "The quantity of this food is enough for 2 people or 3 meals!"
Me: "I have complete faith in ur appetite. Am sure u can polish this off urself"

Friend (laughing): "No way. But it will suffice for lunch and breakfast tomorrow". (Yep, Chinese for breakfast - that's him!)
Me: "If you 'ration' the food, it can even last for dinner"

Friend: "Naa... I think making it stretch till lunch is enough"
Me: Laughing heartily and thinking to self (Didn't the bugger say the quantity was not huge)

Friend opens up his fortune cookie: "My fortune is great. it says 'enjoy and relax'. Its the perfect thing to do after this heavy meal"
Me: "yep.... u do that. I'm off to play the game for an hour or so"

Friend: "You had 2 cans of Pepsi?"
Me: "Yep. I thought about it for a minute - and could not decide if I want to have it or not. The I thought, if I die in the middle of the night, my aspiration of having the 2nd can of Pepsi will be left unfulfilled. So I decided to go for it"

Friend (laughs heartily): "Its the right thing to do"
Me (opening up the fortune cookie and laughing like a hyena): "I know it was right.... guess what my fortune cookie says"

Friend: "What?"
Me (pointing to the can of Pepsi) : "It says 'The majority of the word can't is can!' "

Friend: "No way!"
Me (hands him the paper): "I know now I did the right thing by opening up the 2nd can of Pepsi!"

(Both laugh hysterically)

Me: "You know the food was delicious. I'm feeling like I was craving this food since a long time. It hit the spot!"

Friend (packing his lunch): "Oh yes. The food was delicious indeed! Aren't you packing ur lunch?"
Me (with an evil gluttony smile): "What lunch? Unlike you, I finished off all my food"


Btw, just listened to "Nothing else matters", Metallica, "You Give Love A Bad Name", Bon Jovi.... Ah! What a perfect way to culminate the evening with some Nirvana and Prodigy....!

Poor souls, missing OM.
Nothing else matters is a solid number. ' Blaze of Glory' from Bon Jovi is another superb number.
Prodigy you said, do you like Massive Attack too? I love Mezzanine

Intense said...

I agree with the title of the post save a word or two. Which ones? Go figure! :D

eye-in-sty-in said...

Hi FE,

yea yea - OM is what I started with and am sure you how how it is with the 1st everything :D
Blaze of glory did not play during the post, but I agree its a solid number. Will check out Massive Attack. (OM and MA - now this has become a senti post!)

Hi Angel,

The food was spicy Lo Mein with lots of oil, broccolli, green 'papdi' beans, water chestnuts and mushrooms! Chilli sauce and soy sauce were added to taste - accompanied by Pepsi on the rocks :D

Hi S,
Good times :D

Hi Intense,
Is the title better now? Btw, this reminided me that one need not be drunk to have fun - if u 'feel' high, u can get high - its just a state of mind :D

Vee said...

All that was missing was OM amongst the yummy food, good companion who can actually understand the joke and provides laugh along with Metallica. Bas OM reh gaya..

Hi Vee,

Yea man, OM really is something else.

Hi Ava,

So are u starting ur daily update soon?

Hi Shayari,

Hey, are u making fun of the fortune cookie that backed me up? Listen missy, if it were not for that cookie, who knew how many hours the argument could have lasted :D
Naa, I dont have chinese for breakfast bcoz I dont have breakfast. The Chinese food I order does not last past one meal... I have good taste and a healthy appetite, you see ;-)


Yep.... easy, light n drama free. Good ol' bachelor dayz!

Hi CP,

Nopes, the Chinese dont eat Chinese for breakfast. The Chinese eat food for breakfast like the rest of the civilised people. Its the cannibals that eat the chinese for breakfast, but only bcoz the chinese like to travel to exotic destinations. For everything else, there is Mastercard!

Hi Vee,

Thank you for your wishes buddy! :-)
