The other day a friend pinged me and I replied with a ‘Hi’ without giving it a second thought.
His next line: What’s wrong with you?
Me: Huh? Nothing. Why?
He: Chal na. Tell me what happened.
Me: Arre! Why do you feel something’s wrong?
He: You said Hi. Nothing else. No emojis. Its weird. Even for you.
Me: Come on. That doesn’t mean anything.
He: Ok, fine. My phone isn’t charged. I’m logging off. Talk to you later.
Me: No wait. We have to talk.
He: *sarcastically* Oh, we do? What a surprise!
Then I proceeded to tell him what was on my mind.
Although I loved the fact that he expertly understood the unspoken, I was amused that a mere greeting gave me away. 😬
Friends are the strangest and sweetest. Aren’t they? :):)
