My Good Friends,
You know the best part about interaction? Life teaches us infinite lessons to each and every one of us. Interaction lets us learn what we haven’t yet, both good and the bad. I have learnt things the hard way… And I would like to share… Wanna hear? Here we go…

|Romance Day[Aug 11]
I and Aaliyah have one thing in common. We don’t have any secrets. Or so, I thought! When I walked by with a Big Mac burger and a Diet Coke to their table, they were gossiping in hushed tones. Curiosity took over and I raised my eyebrows, “Anything the matter?”
Both nodded their heads in negative.
“Come on girls, tell me what’s cookin’?”
Aaliyah, “Nah! Nothing Bob, chill.”
We left it at that and when we were alone, I prodded Aaliyah about the conversation. To my surprise, she said, “That’s between girls, Bob… Nothin’ important, leave it pls.”
I felt bad. In fact, hurt. My girlfriend and best friend are not making me privy to their conversation. I let it be. I showed faces for a while and expected to see something odd about their behavior towards, but they didn’t show any signs of that. Everything was normal. Nothing untoward. I mean, nothing changed at all.
I thought about it… Maybe it’s just the way it is supposed to be. I can’t know everything. I shouldn’t know everything. There is always something that she would keep private. There is a space for us together. And there needs to be a space for each other individually too.
Romance is not all about greeting cards and red roses, but understanding your partner. One more lesson learnt.
|Tell a Joke Day[Aug 16]
I got a question for you…
When someone tells you a joke… Do you laugh at the joke or the person?
I mean, is it the quality of the joke or the way the person presents it?
However good the joke is, I believe, it is about the person, who conveys it with proper diction, facial expression and infectious excitement that makes one laugh. I pride myself of that. In fact, I can make a stone laugh. Steve does that too.
Well, he does that without telling a joke. All he has to do is sing. He is a sport though and such a sweetheart. He would start singing the moment one of us has a long face. And there will be instant smiles all over. You don’t need to make people laugh; all you need to have is intent. Learnt that from Steve.

Send At Work Greetings!
The calendar has days and not dates in our office. I mean, they are there, but all we look at are the days. Actually, every one focuses on one day to be precise – Friday! And of course, we love the look of the calendar post Thanksgiving till New Year. It’s not like, we hate what we do there in the office, but it is jus’ that a break from work is well received and anticipated. Work happens at a neat pace on Friday contrary to popular opinion. There is Saturday jus’ in the corner to remind you that there is time for fun, so get to work.
Moment of Zen for you: ‘If you light a lamp for somebody, it will also brighten your own path.’
Quite true, isn’t it?
Light a lamp today and have a very good day.
