so, on an impulse i went to have a couple of beers today.
sitting oppositte to us was a fat guy, who had drowned a couple of quaters of whiskey in fron of us….
so as we are paying up and leaving, that guy totally drunk and out of control, calls us back. One of my friends had left a little bit of beer in his mug. So, he tells him to drink it up, because we have payed for it.
But, as he lifts the mug, he yells “wait wait”. my friend stops and asks him what?
he tells “cheers to kiya hi nahi” ( we did not say cheers at all)
so after cheers, he starts to tell the story of cheers.
Q>Why do people say cheers before they drink?
A>(as given by that drunk fellow)when we drink, we taste it, so that is the job for our tounge, our hands bring the drink to our mouth, that is the job of our hand, we see what we drink, we mix our drinks and see what we eat, that is job our eyes, we throw out our waste through our ass and…., that is its job. Poor ears are jobless. So that they feel good, we tell cheers, the job of our ears is to listen to this cheers and feel good. When everypart of the body enjoys, should we not give something for the ears to enjoy also!!!
My encounter with drunken jokes dates long back. One of them is a very sidey and pervert song, which a group of students were singing in a bar in bangalore.
One more time, on a trip to tirupati, in the train, me and a couple of my friends were discussing life, girl friends (or the lack of one), and other things, especially the lack of the better half in our lives, as one drunken fellow (he just downed a couple of quaters in front of us) exclailms
“FIRST DUTY, THEN BUTY”…..finish your studies, get a job, get settled and then start thinking about love.
Then that fellow started chatting, and when my friend asked him, why do you drink so much. Even if you want to, try to drink beer, which is better (not that it is not bad, better than other drinks)…he asked us, have you seen ‘Sami’ (a tamil flick), and went on to say that the hero in that picture, eats idli with beer (instead of sambhar and chutney) and brushes his teeth with beer. That is what beer is for him. A substitute to water!!!!
I am not against drinking, but yes, i have kept myself in total control and expect others to do so as-well.
I do not know about others, but I am sure that my close knit group of friends from RVCE, is so close because of the numerous (o.k, not so much, about 5-6) daroo parties we have had as a group. All of us used to get high, and talk so much about ourselves, about our dreams, problems, insecurities etc etc (things whiich in our sober lives are closely gaurded secrets), that we got to know each one of us really well. Plus, the next day, after the hangover and stuff, all of us got to be ourselves, closely gaurding the same very secrets, but happy inside that the other guy knows it. We never broached the topic when we were not drunk, but still the closness was shared.
I will never forget our last daroo party, at the pub B-11 in bangalore. What a night it was. Truly memorable…..
anyways, Oscar fever has gripped me.
Watched Brokeback mountain in the afternooon, and now it is time for Capote.
will watch crash and munich tomorrow. Have not found good night and good luck on the lan….guess that will have to wait…
so long then
