all-time buddy…broken-toe buddy!

Friendship…it’s a weird thing! And friends…they’re weird people! πŸ˜€

They come into your life when there is no space left. And then, there is no time left! Your life walks over, takes an entry ticket to the nearest circus grounds and gets a seat on the most violent roller-coaster πŸ˜€ It’s an amazing phenomenon…

They say “Everything in life will change…only friendship remains the same.” Well, though I don’t agree totally to that, I do think friends are some of the most dynamic things that happen to you! No one else can be with you and create total havoc in your life πŸ˜€ …

There have been many friends who’s come, stayed, left and come back again…but none has mattered more than Jaya. Well it’s not Friendship Week or Friendship day; its not her birthday. What prompted me to write this is a really funny thing that happened to Jaya! πŸ˜€

Its quite easy to say “He / She is my best friend. We have a lot in common.” But in our case, the ‘lot in common’ has always been a bit too literal! πŸ˜‰

Oh, the fun we’ve had!

Of all that we have in common — attitude to life, interests (books, hobbies, bitching and guys), memory failures, i-live-to-get-into-trouble syndrome and what nots — the most striking has always been our voice! And the things we’ve done with it πŸ˜€

Hehe…everyone — from her parents to her boyfriend — always had (still have) trouble distinguishing her from me and vice versa. I once had the most embarassing conversation with her boyfriend πŸ˜€ Anyway, we have intentionally and unintentionally fooled many people and laughed our guts out!! Those stories are quite personal (and I’d be murdered if I publish them here πŸ˜€ ).

Well, coming back to the funny thing that happened to her… Yesterday, she broke her toe ! πŸ˜› (No no, I’m not a sadist friend who is overjoyed at her toes woes πŸ˜€ )

Flash back πŸ˜€ : Two years ago, I went to the beach with a cousin and we were shooting sand at each other with our feet. At one point, my foot met his! He screamed at me for the little layer of skin I accidentally peeled off his leg — while, I wasnt even aware of my broken toe till I reached home πŸ˜€ I couldnt believe it! I’d broken my toe in the most stupid way one can break a toe πŸ˜€ . With that broken toe, I went off to Mumbai the next day with Jaya (for our project completion) and climbed every single available foot-over bridge at all most of Mumbai’s stations — across VT, Andheri, Juhu, Dombivali, Thane and Mahalakshmi πŸ˜€ …and then we went to Goa…with that same broken toe (you cant expect a toe to form bone, zap in 10 days)!!! And my dear freind teased me for being “the committed student”. (I looked at it as a chance to freak out in Mumbai and Goa with my best friend πŸ˜‰ . Project? What project? Toe? Aah…slight pain there! πŸ˜€ )

Yesterday, Jaya had Thiruvaathira practice at her office. The girl by her side put her best foot forward — but

a thiruvathirakkali in progress somewhere ;)

a thiruvaathirakkali in progress somewhere πŸ˜‰

at a time when it was uncalled for — and Jaya broke her toe! πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ Thiruvaathira is a dance form that gives no room for violence! It’s one of those slow moving, peaceful dances. C’mon! If she’d been practising break dance, I can understand πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜‰ Hehe…knowing Thiruvaathira steps, and having done it myself a few time, I’d say she broke her toe in the most stupid way one can break a toe πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ (but not as stupidly as I managed). And the “committed employee” is in office even today. Took no leave, could not stay away from work (or is it the practise?) πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€

Edi, njaan athum kond nadann odukkam 3 weeks-il heal aakumaayirunnathu took 3 months. Maryadaykk veetil irikkaan nokku πŸ˜€ . Get well soon, honey! Mwah! Love you loads, my broken-toe buddy ! πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€

    I’ve never broken any part of my body till now, thankfully, and I don’t generally handle physical pain that well… Hehehehe…. I cry and scream and create a ruckus! πŸ˜€
    Get well soon, Jaya!! I know you better than you think!!! πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€

    Shhh!! Don’t tell Jaya our little secret! πŸ˜‰
    Hilarious post! πŸ˜€
    Get your tonsils removed… It’s a nicer experience than breaking a toe… πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€


  5. hey you made me miss my friends too! But truely its a great post and hope she gets herself whole again! πŸ™‚

    @ Niks

    Getting tonsils removed is better? Ah, if i tell you the whole procedure of anaesthesia and its complications, prolly you will never ever talk about it!! πŸ˜› πŸ˜›


  6. @Reema
    Hehe…thanks. Yea, i hope so too…but apparently, she’s bent on performing th dance …so


    Damn! Why did yu even use the word ‘secret’ here? Do yu have ANY idea wot a girl does wen she knos thrs a secret about her that a guy knows ??? πŸ˜›
    btw, wot on earth makes yu think I have a tonsils prob?? I have a perfectly functioning throat!

    Call them up right away πŸ™‚
    Yea, i hope so too!
    In case yu didnt notice, he wants ME to get tonsils removed!!! for what joy, i have no idea

    @Sakhi (again)


  7. haha, Thiruvathira is definitely not a violent form of dance. if it was kalaripaitu, I would have agreed.

    This is the best thing about friends, something bad happens to them, we make fun of them.. something good happens we make fun….
    Its fun all the time.

    Try writing a post when your relative breaks his/her leg. πŸ˜€


  8. @Vishesh
    Welcome to AlphabetWorld! πŸ™‚
    Well, in both our cases, it wasnt just a nail…it was the whole toe! 😦

    Great! Yea, I agree…(i agree on all that is within the brackets too πŸ˜› )

    Exactly! That too, coz of someone’s wrong foot, her foot isnt right anymore πŸ˜€
    Yes, we both laughed our heads off when the other’s toe broke πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€

    well, the fun comes down relatively if i write about a relative πŸ˜€ I’d have no fingers to type with, after tht πŸ˜€
