Perspective!


He: I really liked your picture in that black suit and red dupatta. It’s my favorite combination.

Prospective GF: Yes, I know.

He: How do you know?

Prospective GF: I read about it in your blog.

He: (wily smile) Have you been snooping on me??!!??!!

Prospective GF: You only said that your life is an open book and anyone can take a look. So I took a look. By the way, do you still miss her?

He: I’d be lying if I said I don’t. I spent 8 years with her and she is a significant part of my memories. But I miss her just as I miss my deceased sister. I know she isn’t coming back. So I send a little love psychically when I miss her. Aids in avoiding any bitterness (toward life) and in moving on.

Prospective GF: 8 years. Wow. That’s like one-third of our lives.

He: Well. One-ninth if you consider an average life expectancy of 72 years. Doesn’t sound too significant; does it now??!!

Prospective GF: You and your ‘perspectives!’
