Hey! Hi there! How’s life!!?? * Saw what I did there* *wink wink*
So… this entire weekend, I was on a road trip * My amateur blogger-self forgot to take pictures* *awkward laugh* … and considering my love for travelling, I was super happy! If someone would have recorded a time lapse of my expressions during the trip, I swear, you could have counted all my teeth, because I was literally smiling my widest smile through those three hours!
But then… this happened….
I stop at a motel for some rest and some food *a.k.a love*. The place wasn’t that crowded, and the aroma of Indian flavors scented the air, hence, making sure that I end up ignoring the woman who was sitting beside me at my table!
She said, “Hi!”
Her sudden friendly greeting took me by surprise and I almost flinched at the idea of any human interaction before stuffing my mouth with all the food there… but anyhow, I am a friendly person *self- proclaimed* so, I reciprocated her gesture…. and I seriously regretted that for the next 45 minutes of my life!! *not even an exaggeration* *sadly*
So, after I was done greeting her, I resumed with the task of fantasizing about my lovely betrothed *food*, innocently unaware of the storm that was about to hit me in my face!
This woman, she starts with a, “So, where are you from?”
A drop of sweat trickled down my back, my left eye twitched and my nails, literally, started dancing against the table wood…for… that question, screamed the situation that I got myself into!
I brushed away my anxiety and smiled as I blurted out the answer, making sure that I sound like a log of wood! *literally*
And then…there was silence…I sighed, relieved, I was sure that I escaped from my ultimate nightmare…
But… I had no idea of the danger lying ahead… *cue tense music*
A few moments later….
“I am from Delhi! “ said the woman, even friendlier than before!
“Oh! Cool! “ I replied, unexcited!
Woman:- My entire family lives in Delhi!
Me:- Oh! Nice! Delhi is a nice city!
Woman:- Been there?
Me: – Yeah! A couple of times!
Woman:- Been to South Delhi?
Now… mind you, by this time my food was in front of me, and half of it was already in my mouth!! So, paying my due regards to the table manners, I simply nodded my head! And…
In the next thirty minutes, I knew the exact procedure… accurate…. precise… that how, five years ago, her cousin’s brother’s friend’s sister attended her cousin’s wedding and she introduced that girl to another cousin of hers and now they are married and have a kid!
Trust me… I swear… I would have failed at life if that woman wouldn’t have told me that…but now… I believe in myself, for sure, I will be able to get my cousin married to my other cousin’s brother’s friend’s sister! *yess* *blessed life*
