Chance encounter of the Blog kind

Anush and me were at the Nilgiris supermarket , near home. As usual Anush was heading to the chocolate rack while I was busy with the billing and I was admonishing her" ANUSH!!"

A very pleasant looking lady turned to me and said" Anush as in Anushka?"

I said yes. And Lo & behold, it turned out to be MINKA ! I was talking to!

I must say though it was a very brief and very very chance meeting, I am sure i will see her soon with her Bubbles in tow.

I first saw Anush in the cart. And I couldn't place her and I was wondering how come the kid looks familiar but the mom doesn't.

I went and threw myself in hubby's arms and sobbed . And threw out the cookies and chocolates I had bought for myself .you know why , right ? Now I'll go drown myself in some chocolate mousse. Coming ?

Wow! That sounds so much fun!!

And Minka, what happened?

Minka said...

ha ha !! No , I am not being melodramatic - just asked by art if I have a second bun in the oven . And I don't !!!

Art, yesterday was a strange day - just before I met you , I met another girl who I have seen almost everyday on the bus from Andheri to Worli like 10 years ago but had never spoken to !!

To have upset you but u know what I am sure u could have asked me that tactless question yourself - given my bulges
:-))

yes most definitely would like to join you for a death by chocolate at cream centre ( rememebr teh mumbai one) in RA puram- my treat - if that will make up for my sordid lack of tact

There u go.. another blogger added to the six bloggers u already met.. ( or have u met Minka already?)

artnavy said...

timepass- no - first time i met minka

and yes i must say I was a teeny weeny bit of a cheat when i said 6 bloggers-
hhgmom, itchy, hastobeme, kodi'smom,sue,and all the kids(4) add up to one adult at least i reckoned

so in fact to be honest minka is number six
