Outing

Tiring day today...

Had planned a trip to sangama which
is abt 90kms from Bangalore. Left
Bangalore as early as 8-30am. Thanks
to a minor misguidance by our navigator,
we wandered off course for some 20kms.
We reached the spot at 11-30am. Summer
had taken its toll and we were all very
tired due to the heat. We took off our
footwear, put them in a single place and
waded into the flowing Arkavathi river.
We spent about 45 mins savoring the calm
waters and the picturesque surroundings.
When we came back for out footwear, I'm
shocked to find my flotters missing!!!!
Some guy, that thief... he did not want
a 4k woodlands pair but stole my 130 bucks'
flotters. Luckily my friend had a spare
pair that saved my day...

I did not want to tell my parents abt it
(Dont ask me why). As soon as I reached
Bangalore, I went to the first shoe outlet
I could find, went right in, and asked for
a size 9, black colored action flotters pair.
The shopkeeper had a puzzled look on his face.
He'd never have come across such a particular
and assertive customer :-) When he started to
pack the pair, I stopped him, took out the
pair, wore them and told him that he can keep
the enclosing box! The puzzled look just
increased ten fold :-))

At the end of it all, it was a great outing,
had loads of fun with Naren's patented PJs
and Chan's geeky sniggers.

And having organised this outing, I was
chosen the gang's travel consultant... :-)
