Jab we met

I was pretty cool about travelling alone for a long span of time, but mum was nervous cos she thinks I can't manage myself not only travelling, just anything. So here I convinced her into allowing me to travel alone for once in my life.After a hectic schedule I started with my packing and ended it with a relaxed oil bath. Grabbed something to eat and rushed to catch my bus.My cousin was all nervous and even spoke to the people sitting behind me about my destination and stuff. Finally the giant locomotive started moving and I got comfortable listening to my ipod.After half an hour I just slept off only to be waken up by this dude.
I have alwayz fancied having a 'hum tum' guy next to me when I am travelling alone and then we become great friends and like they say couples are made in heaven :)But this dude just can't come anywhere near the 'hum tum' types.I first thought he was the conductor cos he asked me to show my boarding pass (I hav'nt seen conductors wearing uniforms in a volvo bus).I showed my boarding pass and he asked me if I had a problem with him sitting beside me . For obvious reasons I agreed .It didn't even take him five minutes to get comfortable and there ....Zzzzzz.Then it self my 'hum tum' dream broke down and remained a fantasy.I had to accept the bitter truth that filmy stories are a fiction.Then he woke up in the next fifteen minutes and vigorously started calling someone. When that person didn't attend the call, he started sending messages. Then someone called and he started speaking about weather ..some plot he wanted to buy..and some people he had to meet.He was so random.As it was freezing I was trying to adjust my shawl when my hand by mistakely brushed past his.He was completely taken aback and started behaving like a touch-me-not plant.

I was completely relieved when I got down at my stop..I was happy about the conclusion of those 6 hours of hell.I'll rather go watch Jab we met and satisfy myself.Fantasies never work.

P.S. Have updated my picture blog with sunset pics and my shoot for Xpat Asia.

hehe.. agreed!!fantasies never work!I have also thought cinematic many times like ... in a cricket match wanting to beat a good side being underdogs just to be routed completely, meeting a famous personality to get a break i wanted just to be blindly ignored by the person,trying to find a cute gal next to me while i travel only to see an aunty requesting for my seat and literally pushing me to the last seat.. the list goes on.. bottom line .. fantasies are better being at fantasies.. when it becomes real it may be tragic:D

ps:Thanks for ur comment on my blog.

Ah... the moment was lost isn't it when that 'touch-me-touch-me-not' feeling. I think he was an idiot
;-)

Next, let me know when you travel down south, atleast if not the hum tum types, you can board down the bus in a feeling of having met an smart, dashin, interesting person. ;) do I even have to try telling who that could be .. LOL

Just kidding and thanks for leaving behind a remark in my blog.
