I am talking on behalf of all guys, I’m telling you…It does not take much for a man to fall in love with a woman. She does not need to have the full package [I’m not gonna explain what ‘the package’ is]. The girl could be slim having frizzy hair and wearing an over sized shirt with still yet to develop breasts hiding behind it, but we’re willing to ignore all those things if she has a pretty smile – just a smile, that’s all – and we’re in love.
I don’t know what’s come over me – but I needed to write this and now I feel really good… like sooooooooooo goooooooooooooooooooooood
Okay, now coming to the actual story.
The story happened at a tyre shop. The car needed new tyres…all 4 of them, all of them went bald, so a replacement was needed. Dad signed the cheque and left me to wait for the entire procedure to be completed to drive the car back home. In the meanwhile there was the office girl sitting behind the table [she was alone] and myself sitting and waiting just breathing the same air [the aircon was on and on quite a low temperature]…no one spoke anything, until she broke the silence and asked me “Are you from Margao?” I replied saying “Yes” and somehow we started talking…like you know..she asked a few questions, I answered, I asked a few questions, she answered and it went on.
Now about the girl…she was slim, frizzy hair, spoke impeccable English and made a good conversationalist and her smile…OMG! It was out of this world… I was in Love <3
A phone call came and screwed up everything…time passed, the stupid customer on the other line went on talking and I kept looking at her from the glass reflection [I couldn’t look at her directly ryt?]
She realized my uneasiness I guess and she said…”I think your car is ready”
Damn it! So fast!? Why are those boys so efficient in their job? A 45 minutes job was completed in 30 minutes… Shit! Shit! Shit!
I was nervous talking to her and I didn’t even know why.. maybe it was the temperature of the a/c that made words difficult to come out..
There are some moments that take your breath away – this was surely one of them. Whether I meet her again or I don’t, I will never forget her face.
Just being in the same office as her reminded me of one dialogue that Bunny said to Naina in the movie Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani “Tumhari jaisi ladki flirting ke liye nahi, ishq ke liye bani hai”, that girl is definitely the ishq ke bani hai girl.
Would she ever read this? I wonder…
I have this very close friend of mine from Pune, if I tell her…she’ll actually come down to Goa, take a print out and give it to the girl to read. She’s like forever asking me “Why don’t you fall in love?” 😉
