Postpone

It is so easy to postpone writing down something that you wanted to for such a long time. I am sure most of you agree to it. On Monday I checked my facebook page and saw that an old friend of mine had done a status update. I was angry that he did not reply to my one-on-one message but had the time to do a status update. I pinged him and asked why he did not message back and left it at that.

Now some background. This guy and I are friends since our college days, which means almost 15 years now. We know each other so well that we are family friends today. My mom and his mom are very good friends and both our families make it a point to keep in touch with each other a lot. But as always life has kept us in different continents, him in EU and me here in USA. We rarely talk and thanks to FB that I at least know that he is ok and his whereabouts as he travels a lot.

So anyway back to the story, I was angry and hurt that this friend had ignored me especially after I wrote a sob story message. Then randomly (as always) my phone rings. I see it is a phoren call and I answer it wonder who it might be going through a possibility of a 100 friends and guess who it is, it is this guy calling me all the way from Scotland. I know it is not a big deal to you probably but it is to me. The very fact that he felt bad and called me as soon as he saw my message made me feel nice. We chatted for quite sometime and he wondered why I never received his FB response to my message...

It was so nice, to hear my friend after almost a year and to hear how his life has progressed. I was almost in tears of happiness. I guess this is what friendship is all about. You can be thousands of miles away but you can still make me feel better about the way things are heading in my life. Thanks PS for calling me I really appreciate it. I only wish we could talk more often but then probably we would get bored of each other too...hehehe...with me giving you my worldly gyaan and you asking me to shut the eff up...ya...you know the routine...

Other than that, I am looking forward for the weekend. Nothing lined up but just chilling is always fun too...Thamma is in town (as in he is US of A for two weeks) so loads of phone calls with interesting news and gossip...

Tomorrow is V-Day, as usual all the hype makes you want to do something special because there is too much pressure with every one (whether you know them or not) asking you if you have any fun plans. I don't and if you don't and want to do something cool check out Ash's blog or if you want to know what I think about this really, visit my old page here. I always wonder why celebrate your husband/boyfriend/better half/etc on only one day...well I guess Hallmark needs to make money too and all Hallmark investors will agree too...

Anyway will continue this blog Monday as I have to head home now...till then Ciao!
