I got tagged :-)

Seema is my blog friend from Horizon, a very high energy gal and a young mother, who tagged me to these questions that she has for some of her "good" friends ( I hope you have not missed the word within quotes).  Seema, this is the first time I am ever getting tagged.  I am only answering your questions here and not the others and there goes my answers. 

Thank you Seema, I enjoyed going back to some of my memories.

1) What is your favorite word or phrase?

Love you

2) What holiday makes you sad?
How can holidays make you sad?

3) What is the most cheekiest thing you have done till date?
I got to admit that I haven’t done too many cheeky stuff, but here is one – on a day that I was too bored to listen to my friend, after college, while sitting in the last seat of a metro bus, I looked squarely at a pillion rider on a motorbike, parallel to my bus ( which were all moving) and winked. Before I could be content and Smug with the cheap thrill, I realized there was a traffic jam and pillion rider was saying something to the rider, got off the bike and was walking towards my bus. My heart in mouth, I wished the bus would swallow me – he came around climbed the first step, second step, third step and stood there. It must have been the fear and sheepishness on my face, he just got off the bus came around to the window where I was sitting and said “got scared eh! Don’t worry” with the largest grin I have ever seen.

4) What is the last meal that you made for yourself?
Boiled eggs and steamed banana ( Nendhra pazham puzhungiyathu )

5) What was your best birthday ? Why?
My 25th birthday, the one that I celebrated first after my marriage. Joe was in Ooty for a review meet from office and was not supposed to return till the next day. He sent me gifts through courier and in the evening when I reached home, I saw him there (back on special permission), the house decorated for my birthday the cake ready and I thought that was nice a surprise. A little later, my parents and joe’s cousins joined the party. That was a really memorable one.

6) What would you do if you won the lottery?
Faint first and will go crazy later.:-)

7) If you had a warning label, what would urs say?
Chatterbox – listen at your own peril.

8) Have you ever got sweet revenge on someone?
Sweet surprises no revenges.

9) Who was your first best friend?
In the true sense of it, ML was my first best friend. She was my classmate from Std VI and we continued till std XII and then lost touch completely. We found each other again later through FB. I was so touched that she still has a handmade birthday card that I presented her in std VII or VIII. I have written a post about that here

10) What is the most scariest thing you have ever done?
Crossing a Burma bridge. It shook the life out of me. Realized I had a fear for heights.


  1. Warning label completely untrue. If only this dear blogger would "chatter" more ........... :)

    1. hey, you folks havent heard me speak. Can you imagine i make a living out of it :-) putting it down in writing is something different altogether.

  2. Lovely Read and loved the bus ride memory of yours! Could guess the reaction completely! :D
    Really laughed my heart out at that! :D

    1. Thank you Jayanthy. nice to have you around here. been a long time.. Yeah this is a memory that makes me smile too and ofcourse a little embarrased too.

  3. Hey Vincy, You just reminded me that I have also been tagged and I have not posted anything on my blog for than a month, so let me also do this.. thanks for the inspiration...ha..ha..
    take care
    Yes will call you soooon..

    1. Rekhaaaaaaaaaaa.. I realised I have an award too.. only after looking at your post. and yeah i was about to tell you to write a poem - its been a long time since you had posted. hmm the call is hanging in the air...

  4. Laughed like crazy reading abt ur cheekiest episode...I sooo totally cd imagine tht;-D. And even tht guy had a sense of humour;-D. I remember doing something like tht when we went for excursion[yeah tht same excursion from 2 posts back;-P], a group of girls stood near the train door and blew kisses to lungi-clad guys[in kerala] walking on the roads. Their eyes fell out of their sockets. So much fun;-D

    When did u go to Burma??? Where's a post on tht????

    A tag nicely attempted Vincy and so shocked to hear its ur first one;-o. We shd have met atleast 3-4 yrs back I was a tag-rani then & it wd have been raining tags & dogs on ur blog;-D.

  5. yeah, this episode brings a nice grin to my face too. And yeah, at college as a group especially when you go for a trip, I know we get into all these stuff.. ahhh.. what fun... How easily we could laugh at absurdities then... when i first read your comment I thought you did it when you were in College. I am sure you have done cheekier stuff than that :-() :-()

    oh yes, tell me about your tagging experience... I have read that and I used to wonder how this girl gets so many tags :-)

    And that burma bridge was a adventure trip that my training team organised for one of our review meets in Pune - and it is any bridge that has a thick rope for walking upon, and two ropes to hold on to. The bridge stretches across a gorge and the one that i walked was around 100 feet deep. My legs was shaking so much when i reached the middle of the gorge and was shitting bricks when i looked down. ofcourse, there was safety gear but your eyes make you beleive what you see. I think these were built in Burma during the world war II and hence goes by that name wherever it is built.

    1. Those were the days...I used to be really popular then u knw;-P

      @burma I get it:-)). Tho I cant ever imagine doing it *shudder, shudder*.

  6. Vincy--I laughed a lot at the cheekiest thing, hahha, can totally imagine your reaction when the guy climbed in the bus.
    Thanks for doing the tag
