Hello once again fellow unfortunate souls,
The worst is over. Oooverr. Phew. I am going to be very frank with you,oh yes. There is as much of a chance of me passing mathematics as there is of Dolly Bindra becoming a Ballerina. Sheesh,imagining THAT sent a chill down my spine. But that's the last thing I might be worried about right now. The issue ruling over my life at this moment is HOW,I mean HOW can people totally overlook Pure, unadulterated AWESOMENESS at times. Makes me feel the world is a sad place after all. You see, the conversation I had with my best friend a while ago disturbed the shit out of me,if that makes any sense whatsoever,
Bee.Aff.Aff : Sooo,how was the party? Where was it?
Moi : It was totally Lalala types.(A less known synonym for Awesome) At Dipinder Paaji's!
Bee.Aff.Aff : Uhh who?
Moi : Arrey apni,wohi, Dipnaa!
Bee.Aff.Aff : Huh?
Moi :(irritatedly) Dipin. (Fullstop=I am pissed. Ask me what's wrong ASAP,if and only if you love the position of your head on your torso)
Bee. Aff. Aff : Could'nt you say THAT in the first place? Who all came?
Moi : Popkorn, Santa, Sushi, Sukhambi, Cheeku...
Bee Aff. Aff :(Interrupts. Bite me)ACTUAL names please?
Moi : Are you exceptionally slow? How many times have I told you their actual names?
Bee. Aff. Aff : Unn sab ki maa ne itna pyaar se naam rakha hai. It won't kill you if you address them NORMALLY for once.
Even your best friend tends to ignore the most crucial things about you at times. For the rest of you who wish to remain in my good books forever,there is one fact that needs to be kept in mind at ALL times. I am extremely possessive about the "Pet names" I come up with. Mocking at me for something like this would be the last thing you'd want to do. Like seriously.
Well actually,here's a list. You might aswell judge for yourself. Comment only if you have something nice to say. :P

Are'nt they like the Awesommest names EVER? :P
I mean who the hell likes to be called by the same old Ghissa-Pitta names they've been responding to since like forever. EVERYBODY calls you Rahul. WHO will call you Hukie? Everybody's always known you're so and so person. And your name's Ashna. But CHEEKU? Does'nt it make you feel all cute? :P Mums find the easiest way out. When you were born,she very conveniently started calling you Pannu, short for Pranav. But who could have thought one fine day you'll be called Popkorn?
There's a simple logic behind all of this. People walk in and out of your life all the goddamn time. You meet new people,you roll your eyes at a few, and you silently accept a few into your Small World. When I rechristen someone,it's simply a way of saying "Hi. I like you. You're welcome to become a part of my life :)"
And most of the times,the more pet names you have,the more important you are. So the next time you hear me shrieking "Jhinguuuuu" or calling you by that absurd,embarrassing name in front of a drop dread gorgeous chick(:P) or simply get an affectionate text from me saying "Chotaa baby :)", just go ahead and smile a bit for me,because well, it's just my way of saying -You matter. Hang on to me,will you? :)
