A friend was lost in thought and was complaining about the state of affiars in her life for what seemed like forever. Sensing that it was not doing any good to her, I changed the topic and this is how the conversation went.
Me: “Okay, stop it. Let’s change the topic. Did you go get that blouse this afternoon?” (Blouse: Worn with Sarees)
She: “Yeah. I picked it up”
Me: “What is it for? Is it for the Puja that you’re going to have this weekend” (Puja: Prayer to God involving typical Indian rituals. Performed in traditional Indian attires like the Saree)
She: “Mmmm? Huh….aaaaaaa…..Ya…what….mmm…no….I got it for the Saree…..”
I laughed my lungs out and the poor thing joined in after a while.
