Another 'you had to be there'

Went with a friend and my daughter for the movie 'Siruthai'. Honestly, one of the most stupid films I have watched in a long time. 'Sorry' to Karthi Sivakumar, one of my favourite actors, not for calling this film stupid (nope, it was starkly stupid), but for his having done the film. Why, Karthi, why? Why, Karthi, why? (Twas a double role, you see!)

As the film neared the all-popular interval, there were a lot of fighting scenes that disturbed my 6+ kiddo. She kept staring at me Garfield-Jon style face-in-face until I spotted the words I-N-T-E-R-V-A-L appearing on the screen with much relief and shouted "Don't worry, you can relax, it's the Interval, dee!" The last four words simply rang out and reverberated in that tiny, air-conditioned theatre since the background music suddenly shut off.

As I write this, I can see it was definitely a 'you-had-to-be-there' moment. My friend and I laughed so hard (yes, I was embarrassed enough to cover my face with my dupatta) that we could not even get up for ten minutes, and then laughed our way to the popcorn spot.

Oh well, best laugh in a long time though so very juvenile.

What my Guru says...

His pearls...

*To do business, more than anything, you need common sense.

*There is not a single person on earth who thinks he is NOT sensitive.

*Don't be woolly about anything.

*Prepare, and when you do, be thorough.

*If you don't understand anything, ask. Nobody is born knowing everything.

"If you were the kind of person happy to spend time doing nothing in particular, attending kitty parties, etc. you would not be sitting in front of me! You have to focus on your family and your work."

My personal favourite is the first point above.
