..of a peerless nincompoop

A treat, and some fun

GP got her first job, in fact five of them. Great news, and giving a treat is the norm. Eight of us went to Lemon Grass this Wednesday evening. It was so crowded that we found ourselves seated in the family area, amidst a rather sedate crowd. Everyone ordered starters, SK opted for vodka, SRS ordered whisky and the rest settled for mocktails. GP helped SK and SRS with a small sip from their share. The rest were happy with their mocktails. We were waiting for the two (and a half – that’s GP) to start talking.


Occasional boasts of how spirits won’t affect them. And an odd funny prediction of GP after two sips – a la Jagathy in Olympian Anthony Adam.

“One more vodka please..” and “a whisky too..”

Hitherto secrets come out. Stories of people puking in the toilet, sleeping beside the toilet bowl thinking its their bedroom. Stories of people puking in the washbasin and sleeping in the bathtub. And the story of a unique hero who pukes in the bathtub and tries to sleep in the washbasin. SK’s narration at it’s inimitable best.

“One more vodka.. and a whisky..”. “Yes man, that’s the spirit..”

Stories start to dry up. Now the sources of fun is in the group itself. SK takes small sips from a Sprite bottle and enjoys the kick, blissfully ignorant of the fact that his glass of vodka is left unattended. SRS and GP involve in a serious discussion, amidst everyone rolling with laughter at the seriousness of the discussion. The mess we make takes a toll on others’ pleasant evening. People start leaving the place.

“vodka.. and a whisssky here………”

Perfect pandemonium. Eight of us have a restaurant of our own.

Congrats GP, enjoy your work. And thanks too, for the treat and the fun.
