Sweet story - or is it?!

** BEGIN **

He is dressed in clean pressed spotless white shirt and a flawless navy blue pants. He has a fresh red rose in his hands. He's at a engagement party and is consciously looking every now and then towards the entrance. 30 uneasy minutes pass on and with every passing moment, the eagerness is more and more evident from his eyes. During this time, he's not accepted anything to eat or drink. Its pretty late for dinner and quite a few people have finished dinner. Some people do notice that he's got a rose in his hand and are wondering why he's not giving it to the bride-to-be. No, it was not his engagement and no one seemed to know how he was related to the people in the engagement.

His face suddenly lits up in enthusiasm. A fine young lady draped in crisp white dress gracefully walks in. He thinks everyone's eyes are on her. She walks straight to him. He now thinks that everyone is jealous of this fact!

She: Is the rose for me?
He: Of course sweety!
She: You're too sweet
He: Its getting pretty late for dinner and you must be hungry.
She: Oh no dear, I was late, 'cos I finished dinner before coming

(Background laughters if required!)

He: Yeah, even I don't feel like eating.
(Pause)
He: You look beautiful!
She: (Blushes) Thanks. You look pretty dashing too.
He: Well, I've to be my best when I'm with you.
(Pause)
He: Hey, there's a counter where we can get some chocolates to eat!
She: How wonderful!

(They reach the counter, but find only 1 piece remaining!!)

She: Aww, there's only one left.
He: You have it - I know how much you love chocolates
She: Yeah, but you should have it dear - you're such a darling
He: No problems, I could buy a chocolate on the way back
She: No, I'd feel bad if you did'nt have it.
He: And I'd feel bad if I ate it alone
She: Why not split it - we can both eat together!
He: How sweet and romantic?!

As they turn back to the counter, a third person has taken the last piece. He eats the whole piece at one go, tosses the wrapper skillfully to the dumpster a few feet away and walks away thinking - "Sheeesh! GET A LIFE!"

  9. Srini here has been dreaming a lot. He's got to realise that he's been seeing his dreams in First person view and not third person view :))

  13. Raju - Well, I must have my own style that stands out, right? ;-)
