Theres something I really love about my workplace. Its the lush green lawns, the gardens, the flowers in their full bloom..And I love the fact tht you have to walk along the gardens to reach the office from the campus gate...Its really lovely...It actually makes getting up early less miserable for me..
Nowadays a canine couple with pups in tow has made the garden its home...Now we dont allow anyone without an identification within the factory premises, but for these guys we made an exception...
I look at them enviously(you ll know why) every morning as I pass by the lawns to enter my office..
Its a family of 6..(or maybe 7)...There is one Daddy dog(sounds like some rapper no?)..one mother dog, and 4 or 5 pups(whtevr happened to family planning!)
This Daddy dog is kinda ugly, black and white in colour and looks kinda malnourished and limps a little... Mommy dog is all white and pretty(in a doggy kinda way).How on earth did a dog like him get such a pretty female to like him...The look like Mandira Bedi and her husband
would(who is he anyway?), if they ever went out together...
Some dogs have all the luck..
I mean, look at him, rolling in the grass all day, licking his..u know what...sniffing her..u know where..
Why? Why? Why did he get to all this fun((?)) stuff on a monday morning, while I sit at my desk and work all day!
I stopped by him(the dog)..I looked at him like Sunny Deol looks at people hes gonna pound with his dhai kilo ka haath.. He just looked away, like Sachin does, after hitting Shoaib for a six!
But there was no reason for me to be uncivilised..After all we were supposed to be best friends(Dog is mans best friend..Aaarrggh)...So I decided to go through a small chat..
Hey!!? Why did u call me dog for?
Bow-wow!..I thought we were doing tht rapper thingy...U know, where one rapper calls the other "nigga"....Btw, why did u get all mad when i called u dog?
Er..u see...we dont like being called dog...esp by a dog!
Hmm..i see..u humans are weird. I love being called dog..
Hmm..Is it fun being a dog?
Lemme see..I stay in a garden whose maintainance is done by ur company, and I dont work for ur company...And tht girl you losers have been eyeing for days now, stops by me to say-"How cute" everyday...so..i guess its fun being a dog...
Well,she says tht bout ur kids and not u...And I am not eyeing her, some of my friends are...and they are not losers..on second thoughts, maybe they are..
Hmm...u sound pretty cranky..Hows life?
Well mine is a dog's life..
Er..well..the word dog isnt taken in a good sense in our world...no offence..
Hmm..I see..So ur life is boring?
Kinda...I mean there nothing concrete tht i do..
Neither do I...
Thts why I said Its a dogs life!
You have any girlfriends?
I have lots! So ur is not a dogs life after all!
You have lot of girl friends? Shudnt you be calling them bitch-friends? bwhahaha
Hey! Watch ur tongue....
Er..Sorry! I didnt know u were so touchy about ur girls...Is your wife cool about it?
So, u dont have monogamy at your place?
I believe trust is more important than monogamy..
Man! u r too smart for a dog..
I know..I get tht a lot..
So...er..I dunno if I shud be asking you this..but how do u get the bitches to like u?
Oh..so u wanna get into the game...gonna get jiggy..gonna smack up some...
Will u pls stop tht!! Cut to the chase..
Er..bow wow!ok! ok! why r u so cranky! Well, if u hav to know - Its all in the sniffing!
Yeah...ur first sniff is enough for her to know ur intentions..
Oh I see..I dunno why I asked a dog for advice! Monday blues I think..Dont u feel the blues on a monday morning?
No..er...Shudnt u be at work or something..I mean yours is a 8:45 shift, and its close to 9 now?
Yeah...I shud be...I shud get going..Was fun talking to you...
Same here..You cud have made a very good dog..
I turned around and started walking towards my office...Did I just talk to a dog for 15 mins! Guess I did..Man! I looked back..He was there, playing with two of his pups, the other three were still asleep cuddled next to their mommy, she licked them every once and again...It was a
The ugly dog, didnt seem ugly anymore.. Hey dog!
