Camisole

Nivedita:- "Among the six fun things to do in Bangalore, if I've done it only once, and I've liked it very much, can I include that also?"

This was said seriously, not at all tongue-in-cheek.

Me:- Yes you can.

Some time elapses.

Nivedita:- "Look, women are wearing underwear."

I thought that was, at once, a good thing and a sad thing. Turning around while driving my vehicle, I saw that women were, indeed, wearing underwear. On a huge billboard for some undergarment company. Somewhere there was written "camisole."

Now this made me curious. I hadn't even heard of, let alone seen, a camisole. I looked it up and I liked, apart from what it meant, what it represented, what it stood for. Arvind, riding pillion on my vehicle, said that was 'uncovered meat' up there on the board. He he..

Arvind recommends:- Veena stores and New Janardhana bakery in Malleshwaram. In Veena stores, they run out of food very quickly.

I said "Look, many women in underwear" not "Look, women are wearing underwear". There's a difference you know.

That billboard is so straight out of a lingerie catalogue. Any time now Bangalore will go the Delhi way and ban billboards from roads because they divert the attention of motorists, posing a risk to their lives.

Ironically, the same billboard is next to the shivajinagar mosque. Hmm...

[Nivedita]Oh houda? arvind reported that you said what I said you said.

This billboard may pose a risk to my life, but would it have been even half the life it is now had I not seen the billboard?

Next to the Shivajinagar mosque? I'll repeat what I said yesterday:- God save that board. The cats'll come flocking to the slab of uncovered meat and it'll get raped royally. And it'll all be the board's fault.

[Vijay-my-junior]He he, I see you're going strong on the front of making good puns!

A shop for buying underwear? I don't know, some place which sells clothes.

Be a man.

Ahh , thanks arjun avare :)
Coming from u , i am mighty happy.
And anyway , I did find some shops which sell these sous-vetements
This had me thinking..
Why do they call it innerwear or underwear ? Why not internal wear or internals for short ?
Which sets the tone for some nice pjs.
A friend to me :
"These internals are a real pain the ass maga"
Me:"Uh oh"
Another : " Internals nalli proxy hakbedrayya"
Me :"Mffpt"
And suchlike.
Its upto u now..

Hehe. I liked how the post was really about nothing. And still so pleasant.
And misquoted sentence was funnier, so poor Nivedita has to grin and bear it.
Such is life.

Arjun Sharma said...

[Vijay]He he, you're carrying on the grand tradition of 'PJ-ing' forward in BMS. May this harmless vice flourish!

I'm trying to quit, man. I have to be strong and hold on now.

[Tharunya]Sadly, yes, such is life. And thank you, the misquoted, apparently(Susan from 'Coupling'), sentence is funnier.

Alla ,arjun avre , PJ-ing bidtiddira ?
Sad ..
Yake?
Moving onto higher things ?
Like satires and the like ?
Or plain bored ?
