Goodness Gracious! When I saw you first....

‘When I saw you first, I thought you were weird.
And now you are my best friend!’


No wonder this group was joined by my best friend on fb! On the first thought I was o_O but later it changed to :)...I have this tendency to give a weird first impression of myself to everyone…Like there was this new girl in our class who emerged from nowhere, while I was busy communicating through a hollow trunk in the playground and I stood up to say a random hello and ended up hitting her on her nose with my elbow…And my best friend, before we came to know each other this way, always considered me as a bully with ‘Fauji Beti Ka Attitude’, though she was the daughter of a Lt. Colonel and I, a civilian’s! One of my primary class teachers, with whom my bond grew really close later, told me that she initially found me ‘out of the world’, strange coz I answered everything with a ‘toothy’ giggle! That’s me…appearing strange to some, unearthly to others…thankfully, this first impression doesn’t end up being the last with people who get to know me better than strangers!

Dunno if it's the weird me only who thinks this way but actually all the people who we call friends today were once strange creatures to us too!! If I try and recall people etched in my memory forever...I remember...the one who painted the corridors of an Army School with the memories of that beautiful, yet funny double plaited ponytail….Another who had this brilliant hand famously called the ‘Polio Hand’ and her way of scribbling notebooks with strange pen strokes with a stranger hand! Then a lanky, studious Sikh guy (Need I say more? You know what these Sardar guys are like..hehe…No offence!) who was totally anti…and when I say anti…anti to the extent that we couldn’t stand the same ground and still were the best of friends! On starting a life in this college I met new people…there was one whose behaviour followed the sine curve response…I recognized her as once-upon-a-time belonging to a very Chaaloo group and when I gotta know her she was the sweetest, the most decent person I’d ever met…someone who won’t say a bad word for her foes and now she’s the most outspoken (Read ‘Muh-Fatt’) person in our group…Another who donned the title 'DON'for quite some time…and the other a fulltime ‘Noutanki-KI-Dukaan’ and not to forget the ‘Nervous-gone-Notorious’ ‘Lady’..and Ladies and gentlemen....The King Of Weirdos....Tuchi(He ain't no GAL...mind you...Am I right Lespo?)!!;) :P :D

I always thought "Unlike attract" but had forgotten the fact "Birds of a feather flock together"....*chuckles*
Imagine smug faces all around you, with no one to spread a contagious laughter around...Such an insidious thought..yuck...no!!! I can't imagine a world like that!!
Know what....
Weird is wonderful!
Wacky, weirdos are no wretched works of nature but the wonderful, wicked minds, with wisdom hidden ;)

I am a weird woman and I'm PROUD and Chetnajeet Kour Bawa...you reminded me of that!;)

"When I was born, god said, 'oh, no, another weirdo.'
And when you were born, god said, 'aila! competition!' :D :D

Lovely post, Jaunty. I can so relate to this. :D

COMMUNI said...

weirdness or not, everything adds on to the persona of a person, makking us individuals. What would be world like if evryone acts poise..

this reminded me of Robert Orben's words
"A graduation ceremony is an event where the commencement speaker tells thousands of students dressed in identical caps and gowns that 'individuality' is the key to success"

prasadk said...

Hi nice blog.. I will start following it.

And the post about fools is also good one but you could get more categories of fools ..

ZOozo post is superb! :)

Wow! What wonderfully warm words! Wiliest wishes wreathe wreaths when we weirdos wake. Wahoo!
