8th July - What a day!

8th July will never be the same year on year....

Was out celebrating a friend's wife's b'day @ the martini bar while living out of a suitcase when it dawned on me... this is the 3rd person I know who celebrates their b'day on this day!

Waitress was a 10, btw! And my friend was not happy when I snubbed her... yeah, the same one whose wife's b'day we were celebrating! lolz! Such is the understanding between them that when the waitress didn't hover around our table (I was blamed for it, btw) the wife asked her hubby "how come she disappeared?" wonderful couple indeed with deep sense of understanding!

Come to blog world and find out there is a marriage that happened on the same date! And its my cuz's wedding anniversary! And a blog pal's son has passed away on the same date!

Wow! Such an intense and filled up day is 8th July! makes you feel that you are standing still on the side walk and life is zipping past you... (Maybe it was not just a coincidence that our table was on the patio with cars and ppl zipping past)... Kinda tell you - better go out there and do your thing before its too late, else you'll always be playing "catch up"

Although, I still maintain I was right in snubbing the waitress when she tried to take the camera from me for a pic! So what if she is a 10, she still has to ask if I need a group pic taken and not TELL that she can take the pic!

My friend's daughter thought she was a little ditsy. The daughter may be young, but she ain't naive... I agree with her :-)

Wow, the turns and tags of life can make us stand still. On one hand, there's the celebration of life, and the other hand we mourn for the loved ones.

Write away your sorrows, my friend.

Condolences to Lynn......
Well someone very rightly said....Life's a journey not a destination.....
And like you mentioned about getting it before someone else does.....I would say Life is not the amount of breaths you take, it is the moments that take you breath away....:)

Live each day as if it is your last and there'll never be anything un-done, unsaid.

My dad's birthday is on 8th. I missed him so much on the day. He used to love being wished and partied on the day.

Hi Varun,
Congrats on the 1st comment and thank you for the wishes!

Hi Anna,
Sometimes we do have to find a way to vent out the steam of thoughts. You should try it too.

Hi Rips,
I have heard that quote in forward emails and it still holds value bcoz its the truth.

Hmmm.. there are days when one gets to see two sides of the same coin.

BTW waitress was 10..??

eye-in-sty-in said...

Hi B,
10 means - she was absolutely STUNNING!

Hi Sujata,
Well, it was not planned... she happened to find a wrong button and the Spikes shot out ... kind of a muscle spasm with the tongue being th muscle in Q :P

Sujata and I are first cousins.(She is my chacha's daughter. I cant get over the fact that you snubbed a Bo Derek lookalike. Get help.
