A lot of you already know that I had decided to go off sugar for 6 months (less than 2 months remaining now. Woo.hoo!) ... and those of your who don't ... oh well! About time you caught up, eh? ... So anyways, every month I survived without sugar I would announce it to the world, as one of my greatest achievements. So when I completed 3 months and posted another status update my dear friend Surbhi saw it.
Who is Surbhi? Well, in a short version, she is one of my closest and oldest friend. I met her first time in 1993 and have been dependent on her for my mental stability ever since. She had a baby last year (my first friend to become a Mom!) and hence, has not been able to keep up with my random experiments, like leaving sugar for 6 months, etc. etc.
So back to the original story, when she finally got a minute away from her toddler to check Facebook, she saw my proud announcement and decided to BBM (Blackberry Messenger, like duh!) me immediately. Since we live in different time zones, I woke up and saw this:
BBM Chat (more like scolding!):
No Hi! No Hello!
Surbhi - What is wrong with you?
Surbhi - Why do you keep doing such random things?
Surbhi - You are absolutely fine. You are thin.
Surbhi - I do not understand you.
Surbhi - For God's sake, go eat something.
Surbhi - I am so fed up of you.
Now, had anyone else left me this message (or said it to my face) my reaction would have been an *eye.roll* and I would have not cared a damn, simply 'coz everybody just likes to give lecture and talk - yada yada yada - but this particular message made me SO happy. It made me feel all fuzzy in my heart. If I could I would have gotten inside the phone and hugged her. Well, just 'coz it felt so god.damn.good to know someone cared so much. And she wasn't giving me a lecture. She was just being her caring-nurturing-self.
Then later I told my husband this story with my usual theatrics, and as a proud friend.
His reaction - "Can I scold you like that sometime?" ...
Me - "Errmm ... NO!"
That privilege is reserved for Surbhi :D
P.S. I love my friends!
I received this awesome pair of boots courtesy WANTED. Oh! How I love them!!!
