Bond. Unbond. Unsolved Mystery Solved.

Have you seen Pulp Fiction? Memento? Fight Club? Vanilla Sky? Have there been moments when you are sitting in a movie and keep wondering, what the hell is going on? Why dont I get it? There has to be something to this. Why aint I not getting it? Analyze, analyze, analyze and then, over-analyze! Come the climax, and it all just falls in. Makes sense.

So, as life would have it, Madame Desi is back to her best. What, you guys have a short term memory and cant seem to recollect her? U old people. Go, read
here and here, while I wait patiently.


And I found myself a couple of days ago sitting in my office, thinking about how my bank balance is looking like Jessica Simpsons brain (empty), and if I should invest in those Golf Clubs. Which is when the familiar figure of Madame Desi walks into my room.

"Do you have any Maggi noodles?"

"Eh? No."

"But I thought you would always have Maggi"

"I never had Maggi. But I have oatmeal. U want?"

"Errr.. No."

Next day, I come upon MD, standing next to the Microwave, tearing into two packets of Maggi.

Today, I happen to walk into a meeting and find Madame Desi sitting in it. Fine. Talks are on, my boss is into this critical design decision and Madame Desi, takes out a half cut lemon and starts sucking on it. Yeah, imagine 10 people in a mini-conference room, talking something critical, and Madame Desi takes out a lemon and starts sucking it. Try as much as I could, I couldnt take my eyes off that sight.

And I walked out of the meeting, disturbed.

This was it. None of it was making sense, just like the first two hours of Pulp Fiction. What were all these signs? Why the eccentric behavior? Why was it not falling into place?

And then, I walked up to Madame Desi and asked her, "Are you Pregnant?"

If someone had to ever get as red as a tomato, it had to be her. And if you ever had to see embarassment at its best, you had to see her. And yes, she did nod, in approval.

That explains it all. Some stories can get confusing, but towards the climax, everything falls into place. From today, I have a reason to associate Madame Desi's eccentric behavior. And hopefully this is the last we shall hear of her!

#Iyer: There is no shortage of weirdos... if nothing else, I'll write about me.

#Demi: Sure

#Anita: Yes. I hope its a girl.

#Mahi: If that happens, I will hire you to work as my personal secretary!

#Memphis: More in my next post about that....

#Sensorcaine: Now it makes more sense. Where were u when I first blogged about her? The mystery would have been solved a long time back!

#Casa: Fatherhood? Huh? Dont tell me you are pregnant?

#KJ: Kissie ko nahi.

#Idea: I shall have my payback time!

#LOAT: Like I would really know!

#Menagerie: Thanks. Now thats like a good friend. Thinking into the future and getting me ready for potential problems. Appreciate it.
'fwhhk" could very well be appropriate for all my posts.
