Will The Stiletto Ladies Please Sit Down?


And BAH!

Also... Ouch!

Remember those laws of motion? Apoorva at rest will continue to be in a state of rest, till forced into motion.

So while this soul was at peace with himself, slouched on his couch ready to watch the Giants pick on the Eagles, swing by the peace-breakers.

"Lets go out"


"Ok, we never go out. Lets go out."

"Thats what what you always say and we end up going out."

"Come on man Apoo, get a life."


45 mins pass and I find myself at this weird-ass place. It was some cafe. But the last thing it resembled was..... a cafe! It was over-crowded with people from the age of 20 to 60. Expensive (damn!) booze. Loud music. Smoke. Hot. And enough space to stand on your toes. The perfect blend to piss me off and remind me of the Virar Fast!

So while everyone decided to stand in the crowd (and call it dancing), I decided to stand in what I call the perfect spot. Next to the bar in front of a Television Screen. Perfect spot till the (drunk) lady next to me figures out I am Indian and tries to explain a touchdown.

Lady, I know, but you are drunk, so you wouldnt know that I know!

At this moment a pretty brunette decides to get a drink and walk through the non-existing space between me and drunk lady.
And I cringe in pain!

"Oh, I am sorry", says pretty brunette.
"Ouch, ouch & ouch", said my grimaced face as I jump around on one foot.

Damn those stilettos!

All this has no effect on the drunk lady, who is still trying to figure out the meaning of a touchdown.

Apparently, pretty brunette has got her drink and decides to retrace her path. And retrace to perfection.
"Oh my Gawd, I am so sorry"
, says Pretty brunette as she watches me kick off my shoes and crash on the floor, examining my toe.

"Thats a touchdown", yells drunk lady.

"Do you want a doctor?", says dumb pretty brunette.

For the next few hours, I was so sure my toe was a gonner. Wearing shoes is painful. I have been attending meetings wearing chappals. Its too cold to walk out in floaters so I have to wear shoes till I get into the car and heat it up. Then change into floaters. The only consolation. No broken bones.

Ladies, if you are short, God has made you short for a reason. Accept it. And if you are amazonian, you dont need those stiletto heels. So leave those stilettos at home! Please. You gurls are trying to balance yaselves anyways with those stilettoes on. And even if you do plan to wear them, make sure I am not within stamping distance!

Apoo: Ouch! Now, I am not sure whether I'll be able to do 'all' those things that I used to do with that toe, damn it!

Dumb Pretty Brunette: Aaawwh...Give me a chance to make it up to you!

Did the events take this turn?

#Medha: Serves me right? What wrong have I done to you, that you shoudl wish such evil upon me?

#Brad: I wish my brain was even half as functional as it normally is (which is not speaking a lot) to come up with such lines.

#Bird: Stop thinking about my crotch and listen to Paro

#Paro: U took the words outta my mouth.

#Mahi: For heavens sake, there are like a thousand amazonians I know... and I repeat, U r outta my mind once I read ya blog.
And sorry, I dont approve of the marriage. I can never marry someone who threw my porn stash outta the window!
(Smithy, the marriage is not on!)

#Menagerie: Yes, A-poor-va.

#Demi: Now I know I should run away if you ever see me here!

you were meant to be crushed upon by kolhapuri chappals... getting crushed under stilletoes (thanks for the foto or else i wudnt have understood what a stilleto is) is just not fun...

come down to india, get into virar fast, prolly ladies compartment and get crushed under kohlapuri chappals... it is a much better experience and carrying booze in virar fast is not very expensive...

another thing, i wud suggest you select the "wedding card template" and leave the lady's name blank... you can print it later when you finalise it... or better, surprise the invitees with a final minute change in the bride... that shud be novel and great

oaky enuff pakaoing...

Iyer, I have had my experience with Kolhapuri Chappals. I would like to forget it. And its been in Kolhapur, to give it that added touch. And the effect was not on my feet, but on other parts of the body for trying to steal fruits from someones backyard.

Here is my analysis. Klhapuri chappals cover a large area, cause reddening hurt for a while but cure fast.

Stilettos are much more concentrated. Its like multiple stabs with a sharp needle. Deep damage... which lasts...

I think I might prefer the chappals.

Yipppeee..finally the male brain sees the light!! Apoo, if getting stamped with those was so painful, imagine actually WEARING a knife blade under your heel!

#Arpi: Nahi yaar... I just got excited by Iyers comment and forgot about you. BTW, I thought we had a guessing game going on?

And yeah, stilettos should only be worn by moviestars; lethal when real women wear them! ;)

#Smithy: Come on! It was just healthy exchange of words.

#Mahi: This is what you get for dumping me and more importantly throwing out my porn stash. Donno if I will remember this day... but am sure you will.... Average Joe rejects Airhead Bimbo!! :P
You got a small part right. It is an office lady. Which lady, and which office.... u need to find out!

#Couchie: I know! Mahi is so weird right?
I think stilettos should be worn by housemaids in Mumbai!

#Mahi: Learn, in the sense of future candidates. I dont want you making the same mistakes again.... specially the throwing out of porn part!

#Iyer: Bhaaai.... hota hai. Wait n watch, very soon Bird & Baangd will also wear stilettos.

#Menagerie: Oh, u dont know about Mahi & my past. It was so on now off now that I felt like a light bulb.
