“Hey!! There is a Facebook community called Incorrigibly Good Looking Mallus” said my friend excitedly!
“Yawn, so what else is new”, I remarked listlessly, the tiredness of the busiest year of my life, pinning me down to the couch.
“Dekh na” insisted this Gujju Mallu gal. “Let us do some vayinokking (ogling) yaar.”
“Not interested” I said, turning to the other side and promptly falling asleep. The other two girls in the room did not take their eyes off the TV.
There was peace for an hour or so, and then I was brutally woken up by friend shaking me violently. Her eyes were wide and she looked like she had seen a ghost.
“You won’t believe what I found.” she said cupping her hand to her mouth.
“What!!!” I asked, sitting up straight, sensing something to be terribly wrong. The other two girls left the TV in alarm and were also looking at friend with questioning eyes.
Friend was looking at the members list on the community.
“What happened for god’s sake!” I shouted. Perhaps someone had cut and pasted her photo or maybe somebody else’s we knew. Panic gripped me. We have had experiences of the same in the past.
Friend tore her eyes from the laptop monitor, looked at us with extreme distress and moaned…
“Everyone here is so ugly!”
We chased her around the house with a rolling pin. Grown up girls who fall for such bullshit need an ar** whooping.
And by jove she got one!!
We are hoping that we have ushered in a much wiser individual into the New Year.
