Some Kicks are nice



My first conversation with him was " Just how tall are you?" He turned out to be over 6ft tall , dark, bespectacled and attractive with a good sense of humor and a great way with me. He fit my dream guy criteria( still does) except that I was already with someone else.

During the packing up operation recently I found a " rose day" card he had given me in college in 1994!! I lived our entire friendship again as I read it...

Kicks this is for you-
On your birthday- May all your dreams come true this year and forever. In eternal hope of getting the promised microwave ... Love, Piggy.

Suddenly, I very much miss the friend my Hubby was before we got married to each other.....

Ah ! the college romances. They will forever be treasured coz they never had a chance to turn into the familiar and mundane that marriage sometimes becomes !!!

just like that-
I think kids change the equation but with a little time and effort one can relive those moments

Minka- The college romance- II turned into marriage.:-)

This with Kicks- I do not know if it was romance...it could not be.

A lot of friends thought it was though - including the guy I was going around with then:-)) ( so u know how that ended)

we felt we were like the 'odd couple' in "anything but love" which was a serial that was on air at that time
then I moved away from mumbai , met Navy who swept me off my feet (college romance-II)and Kicks met Apu who charmed him ....

we all stay good friends....with a "what if" that rarely crops up in a little corner of the brain...

LOL! this reads like a script of some Rahul Bose kind of movie
