Slept. And slept some more.

Didn’t do much but just lounged around on Romeer’s sofa the whole day.

I’ve known Romeer since my undergrad days in Bombay. We both went to St. Xavier’s College and have had some mutual friends.

It was nice catching up with him and we were up late last night just chatting and chatting.

When he got back from work, we headed to the Blue Lizard to meet up with some of his friends. Every Tuesday this pub has an interesting game. A bunch of hostesses hand out chits of paper, and we’re asked to write messages and secretly send them to girls in the pub. The hostesses deliver the notes and with some unique code know how to track the chits of paper.  So basically you can flirt with a girl in the pub without her ever knowing it’s you.

We had a lot of fun. And we got away with writing the notes in English. Everybody here knows English.

I started an interesting note exchange with a girl with the line: You are the chocolate at the bottom of my Cornetto.

Need to work on my game. Don’t think my skills at putting my tent up in a middle of a storm will impress any of these girls in these pubs.
