Stupid Cupid

Saw him through the corner of my eyes..not that this was the first time i had seen him; he has been a frequent visitor..goes were ever i go..seems to be following me. This time again he gave me his sweet but wicked smile..i knew the best thing to do was to ignore him..but then as usual he removed his arrow..the damned arrow..which has always had a temporary effect on me.Yes, the cupid was here for the 100th time . This made me think ..either Mr cupid doesn't have any work to do or he has got some targets to achieve for which he has made me a permanent client in his list. Last time when he had visited me ,the effect had been for 1 full year..Suddenly I had become a pure vegetarian. But after 1 year when the effect was gone..and I had realised that that boy was a good for nothing.. I feasted myself with all types of non veg things which humans can ever think of..!!..;)
So here I was again trying to ignore him and telling myself " naah...this time its quite impossible" But again I fell in for his tricks !!!
Let me start from the beginning :

It was tuesday morning ...My place had changed..so was trying to adjust to the new comp and stuff.I was bored in office..didnt have much work to do.. Usually when this happens , I send IP messages to my friends..( for not so intelligent people IP messenger is used to transfer data from one person to the other person in the same organisation ..but for people like me..it is used to send crappy fwds, good morning ,good evening messages..;)....)
So this time also I did the routine thing and sent a very crappy fwd to all the people present in the list.Suddenly came a message from a unknown person . His profile said " I AM HOT " in bold letters..

I AM HOT ( IMH) : hey who is this
Bored Me ( BM ) : dont bother it was a multi cast message
IMH : ohh ok ..but who is this
BM : dimple..and u??
IMH : well u can c ..a hot guy
BM : hot guy..do u know ..ur profile is visible to every one..wt if some
HR guy see's this ...u will b screwed..
IMH : as in ??
BM : y dont u put ur name thr..its quite dangerous...wt will ur boss think
IMH : naah nothing will happen ..and by the way..they know i m hot..wt can
any one do??
BM : godd..don't u think u r tooo modest..
IMH : yup...;)
BM : hmm
IMH : hmmmm
BM : hmmmmmmmm
IMH : yawnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn....

Whole day we talked. But he didnt tell me his name or the floor on which he worked.

That was the first time I chatted to him.Everyday in canteen..I would see every other boy with suspicion.Though i Knew he was a mad boy having loads of wrong information's about himself and may b some attitude problem;every good looking guy i saw in office ..would bring a butterfly in my stomach..."what if he really is verrryyyyy handsome..??"
Everyday we would talk ..We had talked about every thing.. movies,actors,politics,astrology (ohh by the way he was a Scorpio...CANCERIAN AND SCORPIO ARE MADE FOR EACH OTHER..so u can understand y v used to talk so much)...he knew Japanese,he was a writer,he was cool..he was everything that i wasn't. He was perfect ..JUST perfect..and I found myself falling head over heels for him.

Technology has reached new heights, but even it has got internal flaws..these types of flaws are fully present in my organisation. One day when i got a message from him ..instead of his
" I AM HOT " profile..came his employee number. I squeaked a bit..made a employee search. Out came the name "Pallavi subramaniam"...(Name changed)
ME TO MYSELF : "Please god plzz let his name be subramaniam and not pallavi..plzz.."..But I knew this consolation was in vain.
In the next instance .." thank god i never told him I liked him..otherwise.. it would have been so embarrassing!!!"
I was furious with cupid..just to complete his targets he had used me as a scape goat...
All the time I thought he was a smart boy..but he was not a HE but a SHE... i was not amused..!!!

This time I thought I wuold do the same thing to him/her ,but then I dropped the idea..

IMH : heyy babes how u doing??
ME : Heyy...good..well i was thinking ,since i dont know ur name ..y not call u subbu or pallu
IMH : I dont get it ..y will u call me subbu or pallu
ME : coz i think thats a good name for u
IMH : ok spill out.. wts going on here
ME : u tell me u fool...cheat..i know u r a girl...
IMH : and y do think so??
ME : I saw ur emp no...now plzz stop it..i just cant stand this joke anymore
IMH : heyy u r quite smart
ME : that toh i m ...

That day I met her for the first time..she showed me her work place ..her newly straightened hair..she was a sweet heart. I had thought I would give her a thrash on her face ..but all I could do was to give her a friendly smile..and a life long commitment of being her friend..thanks for being my friend dear...
