Lets talk About Female Prank Callers
(For a change)
Aaaahah! You have read it right. I am talking about the demure type of human species here and I am a woman myself. We have long heard about and even experienced prank calls from men once in a while. Yeah! The usual " want to make friendship" or just breathing heavily or you know the usual obscene dialogues and proposals. But women too! Read along.
The other day I was sitting with this friend of mine Moin and he got this phone call from a girl. She wasn't ready to say who she was and what she wanted but said stuffs like she knows how long he has been here ( Moin lives abroad) and his other whereabouts. I mean what was she thinking it was a big achievement for her! Then after the first conversation she started giving missed calls on Moin's Cell phone expecting him to call back. You want to talk to someone and maybe make "friendship" by giving missed calls to prove what that you're broke and desperate?
My friend burst
into laughter seeing the surprised look on my face. I mean girls do
that! He told me that was not the only girl who had called him like
that. How many more are there who, just because they don't have anything
better to do call up guys and wants to make friendship! I came to know
there was this particular girl who called both Moin and his brother
and when she was asked where she got the number from she said, "
Oh! From a friend who said you guys are very nice so wanted
Isn't it much too obvious that you are single and looking for male company to the extent why not over the phone. And when asked their names they come up with poetic names like "Nodi" and maybe Shomudra O.K how about Sunderbon? Moin had a couple of chats with her before he left for States and when he came home for his Holidays this summer, after a year that is, this girl somehow came to know he is here and calls again! And this time she's furious and said things like " Tumi amaar Bhalobashar Jogya nah! ( You don't deserve my love) ". can you believe it a couple of chat and she's talking about "bhalobasha"? Moin assured me he only spoke to her only a couple of times and that was only explaining that he was not available and when she insisted he spoke to her only twice just to find out who she was and there was absolutely nothing which could make "Nodi" think of a romantic relationship. Moreover he didn't have any contacts with her since one year and it was always her calling him and not the other way round.
There's also the smart type who wants the guy to be their Bhaiya. How sweet! Do girls speak obscene language? Let's not talk about it.
this goes out to all the Nodis, keep up the good job.
A tourist wanders into a back-alley antique shop in San Francisco`s Chinatown. Picking through the objects on display he discovers a detailed, life-sized bronze sculpture of a rat. The sculpture is so interesting and unique that he picks it up and asks the shop owner what it costs.
dollars for the rat, sir," says the shop owner, "and a thousand
dollars more for the story behind it."
The transaction complete, the tourist leaves the store with the bronze rat under his arm. As he crosses the street in front of the store, two live rats emerge from a sewer drain and fall into step behind him. Nervously looking over his shoulder, he begins to walk faster, but every time he passes another sewer drain, more rats come out and follow him.
By the time he`s walked two blocks, at least a hundred rats are at his heels, and people begin to point and shout. He walks even faster, and soon breaks into a trot as multitudes of rats swarm from sewers, basements, vacant lots, and abandoned cars. Rats by the thousands are at his heels, and as he sees the waterfront at the bottom of the hill, he panics and starts to run full tilt. No matter how fast he runs, the rats keep up, squealing hideously, now not just thousands but millions, so that by the time he comes rushing up to the water`s edge a trail of rats twelve city blocks long is behind him. Making a mighty leap, he jumps up onto a light post, grasping it with one arm while he hurls the bronze rat into San Francisco Bay with the other, as far as he can heave it. Pulling his legs up and clinging
to the light post, he watches in amazement as the seething tide of rats surges over the breakwater into the sea, where they drown. Shaken and mumbling, he makes his way back to the antique shop.
"Ah, so you`ve come back for the rest of the story," says the owner.
"No," says the tourist, "I was wondering if you have a bronze politician."
A young couple got married and went away on their honeymoon. After two weeks they came back and finally put away all of the presents they received from friends and family. Since this was a new home, the process took some time.
A week later, they received in the mail two tickets for a popular show where tickets were impossible to get. They were very excited and warmed by the gesture of the person who sent this. Inside the envelope, however, was only a small piece of paper with a single line, "Guess who sent them."
The pair had much fun trying to identify the donor, but failed in the effort. They went to the theatre, and had a wonderful time. On their return home late at night, still trying to guess the identity of the unknown host, they found the house stripped of every article of value. And on the bare table in the dining room was a piece of paper on which was written in the same hand as the enclosure with the tickets: "Now you know!"

In the midst of
light I was lost in the dark
I, so blind
Mists of fogs always
Even the devil has
Some useless inventions made by MAN & ofcourse WOMEN !
Non stick Cellotape - it exists !!!!!
