I must, must, must quote Hira S. today. Words of wisdom.
M: Why is it that you can't expect to have a decent conversation with a human being without leading them to think that you're the heroine they've always dreamed of?
H: Every time you talk to a guy thinking that you're just chit-chatting ... they start hearing wedding bells.
M: Really?!?! Where was I when they were distributing these pamphlets?
H: YOU think it's random meaningless chit chat. Their first thought is: "She talked to me. She must like me."
H: Second thought: "When can I talk to her again?"
M: (shock ensues)
H: Third thought: "Apne amma abba ko is ke ghar kab bhejoon?"
.... and to think.
All this time. Wedding plans are made before they can even realize that we're already contemplating the million things we're going to do after this conversation is over.
Fascinating. Mars is one f*cked up planet.
