The Phases of Crushes & Crashes of my life
After reading Z00nie’s “Know "HIM" after magic words” Even I have my own woes it goes on like this he he he.
Everyone in their lives would have had crushes, and me too had my share of crushes. But, it didn't take much time for each of them to turn to crashes. None of my crushes took off, or probably they crashed even before they took off!! Today, when I look back, I can’t manage but to have a laugh.
My first crush was on Mr. X. I was in my Eighth Class then. We happened to speak sometimes. Once I offered him a Cake. He refused to have it and the very next moment I gulped it down. I still can’t forget the dumbstruck look on his face. A few days later, he started going around with one of my classmates. They used to go for wonderful evening walks, Mr X, my classmate and his doggy. Unfortunately (fortunately for me), the affair didn't last too long. On one such romantic walk of theirs, the doggy bit Mr.X. He brought up the question: It’s the dog or me...She chose the dog!!! The news gave me sadistic pleasure.
In 11th-12th. I got very friendly with Mr. Z in my class. It appeared to me that...yes...He is the guy. One day, Mr Z came and sat next to me...close...really close...my heartbeats shot up. He said...I want to tell you something.... but please maintain it as a secret. I knew...this was it...yes.... He went on...you know...X (another classmate of mine) proposed me...and I too like her...and I accepted. I am telling you coz you are like my sister...WHAT THE HECK? As if the first news wasn't bad enough, the second sounded suicidal. I looked at him with an artificial smile and said.... Congrats br..br.. Brother !!!
The next crush didn't take much time to happen. It was Mr. G who walked in to class. I literally had my jaws hanging seeing him. We became good friends...but I never fancied my chances...given the Mr.Z experience. He was my Physics project partner....while He did the project...I concentrated on his Physics ;) ! Just as the boards got over, and as I was mustering enough courage to tell him, his dad got transferred. He changed the city.
Next in engineering college, there was this hottie in my class. Boy....He was a Hunk...Mr. F. used to stand opposite to me in the chemistry lab. I prayed for some chemistry to happen between us. But I guess, he was much smarter than I was. Mr. F realized that I used to mess up all my titration experiments coz I used to be looking at him and not the lab apparatus. I called him out ALONE on my b'day. He turned up with his whole gang of friends. The boys kept giggling and I looked for a place where I could go and bang my head. I huge bill was paid by me by washing utensil in that hotel for two weeks. After that I steered clear of him for the rest of my engineering days.
Moving on from here, it was a major success story. This time round, it took some time for things to crash.... just a little longer. a bit more than five years. Everything seemed like a fairy tale when the crash factor took the better of me.
By this time, I was in my job and I decided to use the term "interest" instead of crush. So , my interest grew in Mr. L in office. I thought he was a very handsome guy. Thankfully, the growth of my interest stopped very soon, the moment I learnt that he was supposed to go on leave the next week for his marriage. he was to marry his long time girlfriend. Only one thought came to my mind.... The good ones are always taken!!!
Day by day my interest started growing in this new hunk in town Mr. S. For me now it is a Do or Die situation. I did not want to die a spinster, I mustered all the courage & proposed Mr. S. Somehow things seem to work well. Finally we decided to marry. I hooked up Manish Malhotra to design my dream wedding white gown. Need not say it ate a major share of my savings, still it was a worth. I & Mr. S after roaming whole lot of diamond showroom in town liked this one particular Diamond wedding band. I was waiting anxiously for “Thee day”. Mr. S Came day before the wedding day, he said can I take a Wedding gown for Press. I said “Oh honey, so sweet of you”. He took both wedding gown & a diamond ring to show to his friends. I was waiting for my wedding gown. Mr. S never returned. After four days I came to know that he ran off with his maid & got married.
Also came to know that he was short of money to buy a Gown & a Ring.
Ha ha ha.....thankfully.....I have grown out of all these......no more CRUSHES.....so no chances of CRASHES......I live this way now.....hey...wait.....who is this handsome coming to my cubicle ???? ;-)
