This is what I call a quiz

The 5 toughest questions for men are:

1. What are you thinking about?
2. Do you love me?
3. Do I look fat?
4. Do you think she is prettier than me?
5. What would you do if I died?

What makes these questions so difficult is that each one is guaranteed to explode into a major argument if the man answers incorrectly ( I.e. tells the truth). Therefore, as a public service, each question is analyzed below, along with possible responses.

Question # 1: What are you thinking about?

The proper answer to this, of course, is: "I'm sorry if I've been pensive, dear. I was just reflecting on what a warm, wonderful, thoughtful, caring, intelligent woman you are, and how lucky I am to have met you."

This response obviously bears no resemblance to the true answer, which most likely is one of the following:

a. Baseball.
b. Football.
c. How fat you are.
d. How much prettier she is than you.
e. How I would spend the insurance money if you died.

(Perhaps the best response to this question was offered by Al Bundy, who once told Peg, "If I wanted you to know what I was thinking, I would be talking to you!")

Question # 2: Do you love me?

The proper response is: "YES!" or, if you feel a more detailed answer is in order, "Yes, dear."

Inappropriate responses include:

a. Oh Yeah, loads.
b. Would it make you feel better if I said yes?
c. That depends on what you mean by love.
d. Does it matter?
e. Who, me?

Question # 3: Do I look fat?

The correct answer is an emphatic: "Of course not!"

Among the incorrect answers are:

a. Compared to what?
b. I wouldn't call you fat, but you're not exactly thin.
c. A little extra weight looks good on you.
d. I've seen fatter.
e. Could you repeat the question? I was just thinking about how I would spend the insurance money if you died.

Question # 4: Do you think she's prettier than me?

Once again, the proper response is always: "Of course not!"

Incorrect responses include:

a. Yes, but you have a better personality.
b. Not prettier, but definitely thinner.
c. Not as pretty as you when you were her age.
d. Define pretty..
e. Could you repeat the question? I was just thinking about how I would spend the insurance money if you died.

Question# 5: What would you do if I died?

A definite no-win question.

(The real answer, of course, is "Buy a Corvette!")

So many things to do and so little time in hand, still feeling like writing this post as I’d like to keep track of this.
This was the worst Happy Birthday for me in the last so many years. No party no celebration and to make things even worst I didn’t receive several calls I was expecting.
Delhi walo tum to aise na the.
I bought “Shantaram” as a gift to me. The only thing I didn’t like about this book is that it’s of 933 pages. Much more then I was expecting.

The other gift I got is something I really wanted. I got released from my project (read officially released, otherwise I am still onto it helping the other peers.)
And now the new assignment, that too outside India! Well I like that but would have been much better if I’d have got some breathing space.
Tomorrow is my last day with this team and I am really feeling bad about that. This was for sure one of the best team I’ve worked with.
Saw an excellent bit of office politics. Tell ya it’s truly fun if you are not a part of it.
Attended the wedding of my colleague and got a chance to listen to “Kadri Gopalnath” on sax. Won’t make any comment on that as I didn't like it that much.

Ahhh... Deployment finished. Time to move.
