Boyfriends v/s I-pods
I happened to hear a conversation between my friend & her friend (both girls), one fine evening & from their conversation, I couldn't help drawing similarities between the 2 'omnipresent commodities': Boyfriends & I-pods. So I let my mind run free in its own humorous sway & lo! It churned out certain similarities & differences between these 2 'must haves'...
1) Boy 1: Dude!! Look at this cool-drool... the latest I-pod... Its 80 GB & loaded to rock your ears out!
Boy 2: Thats nothing man! Look at this 120 GB bombshell!!
Now a parallel version of this conversation between two girlies would be:
Girl 1: Babe! My guy is a macho. He weighs 80 Kgs & can make guys 'run for' their gals.
Girl 2: Sigh!! My boyfriend is 120 Kgs & I hope he doesn't 'run down' any poor girl.
Moral: Kgs & GBs don't mix... Bigger is not always better!
2) Boy 1: Shit man! Its only 3 months & my new I-pod is pissing me off. I think I better grab the latest one on the shelves.
Boy 2: Hmmm... I was luckier. I bought another one only after I enjoyed an entire year of a music blast with mine.
And girls have their fair share:
Girl 1: Buddy, its only 3 months with my new boyfriend & he is already pissing me off.
Girl 2: So soon? I enjoyed a whole year with my boyfriend before I called it quits.
Moral: STATUATORY WARNING: Sooner or later, boyfriends & I-pods may piss you off. It all depends how much patience you have (or can try to have!)
3) Boy 1: (After an year of full-volume music on his I-pod) You know what? I think my I-pod is deafening me out. I can't hear anything which is on a lower volume.
Boy 2: Sorry..come again. Didn't hear you!
And then girls are not to be left behind:
Girl 1: (After having a boyfriend for an year) My boyfriend just doesn't talk sweetly with me. He is always croaking out loud like a frog. I pretend to be deaf while listening to him.
Girl 2: Yeah!... Its the same old story. Sigh!!
Moral: I-pods make you deaf, boyfriends make you wish you were deaf!
So guys, go ahead... enjoy your ear-throbbing I-pods
& girls, enjoy your boyfriends with all their inherent, quintessential qualities!
Girl 3: (shocked!!) Qualities??? Mihir, you said Q-U-A-L-I-T-I-E-S???? (faints!!)
