Of late I have been meeting people from ‘my past’ (school/college classmates, ex colleagues etc..) and its natural that they wanna talk..like you know.. stuff like what’s going on in your life etc. VERY BORING! I have skipped 3 re-unions, who needs that?
A very common phrase commonly used by all is ” you might remember….” NO Sorry I don’t…I don’t remember much from my past, unless I was part of it. Who dated whom, who screwed whom and who topped the class, who got a promotion etc are things I really, really don’t remember. I might have a faint idea though..that’s about it.
I guess all the people who thought they knew me, thought of me as someone who was in the know of whatever happened..basically the person who knew all the gossip. The truth being, I was never bothered, why would I have been..didn’t I have my own life to live even back then?
I have been added to this Whats app group (our batch) of the school that I went to..Loyola School (an all boys school). Tho’ I exited the group once, I was re-added. I don’t contribute much to the group besides wishing others for their birthdays and at festivals. I am the silent spectator…and Oh Boy! can guys gossip better than girls.
So if you’re someone from ‘my past’ reading this.. (tho’ the chances are very slim) this blog, though very much PUBLIC hasn’t really reached the address bars of my classmates/friends computer screens, which is good in a way!
I have always maintained a low profile right from my school days up to now. It is surprising that many people know me and I don’t recognize them…and NO its not because of my parents (a lot of people know them).
One day I was stopped on the beach by two girls (this happened during college days) and asked “Are you Savio? Like Savio Paes from so and so college”..yes those were her exact words.
Another instance was on chat “Savio, don’t you remember me, we met at so and so place” I didn’t remember her so I inquired more..she seemed disappointed and never replied back. Now what’s my fault in that?
A third instance was; A girl got in touch with one of my friends thru FB..told him that she would like to get to know me better. Of course my friends interpretation was ‘dude, a hot chick digs you..here’s her fb link-msg her’. Tho’ the initial chats went well, it never took off..I didn’t get the right vibes.
It’s not that I didn’t have my chances…I wouldn’t say I blew them, it just wasn’t meant to me. The End Result, they are all married and me? Happy Single 🙂
I have met these people, of course after they are married now (happily or not, I can’t say!). There’s something about girls sharing secrets of their spinster life, having nothing to fear now.
I have never gone third base or the Home run with a girl..so at least I won’t get an unexpected call from a girl saying that I am father to her kid. I suppose I wouldn’t forget a thing like that…that’s one memory not many forget 😀 on the other hand some people have real problems I tell you!
This post seems to have taken a different angle..I’ll stop, before I spill out more 😀
I don’t believe I’ve written a post this directionless 😀 I need to get a grip of myself!!
