Of this and that...

With last Monday being a holiday,M and I took off on a trip to Lake Tahoe,Napa and Reno.It was a reunion of sorts with our high school buddies.Yes people,M and I were classmates in high school.Now don't let your imagination run wild because contrary to popular belief, we DID NOT fall in love back then.Hmmm that warrants for a separate post all together.So yes, the reunion.We met up with Nik,Ash,Gana and his lovely wife HR and it was a laugh riot all the way.The fact that we were all meeting up after almost a decade did not dampen our spirits in any way.We ate and drank and laughed and made merry.And yes,we managed to squeeze in some sight seeing as well!All in all,it was a wonderful trip and all of us enjoyed ourselves to the hilt!It was very heartening to see that after all these years, we still shared the same kind of warmth and affection and camaraderie towards each other.And HR blended into the gang quite well so that was a plus.On our way back to the airport we stopped at my cousin's place for a while.We got to see her darling little daughter who is cute as a button!And the dinner was just scrumptious!I seriously had no clue that my cousin cooked that well!

And I promptly fell sick as soon as we got back home.I have been feeling quite under the weather since Tuesday what with a severe cold and body ache and a slight fever.Now when my condition is such,I always crave for a piping hot cup of chai;the kind that you get in the desi resturants;strong chai with some milk and elaichi.And I must have looked really out of sorts on Tue and Wed because on both days,I was offered free chai by the people at the desi resturants that I went to.

I am dreading the weekend in a way.Our house looks like its been run through by a tornado.So the very thought of having to clean up the mess and restore some semblance of sanity is kinda putting me off.But ones got to do what ones got to do.I got to convince M that its all his responsibility.Thats all.

desi restaurant chai? girl go buy yourself some taj mahal tea leaves and make it at home. home made chai is way better. the restaurants here try to do too much with it. the best chai i ever had was at this dhaaba in the middle of rajasthan. i will never forget it.

Get well soon! :)
Btw, S and I were classmates in middle school, and NO we did not fall in love back then. Sigh... I don't know how many times I have had to explain this to people :D
In the same boat? :D

Pri : Actually,the chai in a couple of desi places here is reallyyy good.So much so that I have become a lazy bum; forgotten how to make my own cuppa and kinda survive on the chai at these places :-D.

Shruthi : Oh yes yes.The very same boat!!
So people,especially the older lot, ask me about how we met,and the moment I start off with "We were actually classmates in high school",I can hear their tongues go click and see their eyes pop out of their sockets!Its kinda hard to make them pay attention to the rest of the story!

So is there a post on how you and S met??! ;-)
