Being Neighborly With a Twist

So, what I’m going to do today is accord you a glimpse into my world, where occasionally I act very out of normal character. And that means that I allow the silly part of me full reign over my actions. In this regard, some of my friends know of my current-est hang up over blonde. blue-eyed gora dudes. Not that I’m ethnically biased or anything but I am talking gora goras, as in non-Pakistanis as in foreigners (itโ€™s a phase!) but specifically blonde and blue-eyed and I am not talking about Nick Carter ala Backstreet Boys genre (Although must shamefully admit to having had crushes on them too!) but say slightly mature, and dignified.

So anyway, a few days ago, I forget when… Actually, Thursday, January 04th 2007, approximately 0930hrs visualize the following scenario:

One bandi, dressed to the nines coz she has chores to do, gets in the car, stops at the gate and notices one adad, blonde, blue eyed guy, wearing jeans and a sweater and a chitrali topi with a cigarette in his hand in the street;

Just as she revs the engine the car stalls, sputters and dies and then refuses to start;

Said car is then being pushed by miscellaneous servants out onto the road which is a dead end street on a low incline while said gora watches the spectacle unfold….

Car still refuses to start despite the efforts to release clutch and shift into second…

Said gora comes to window and asks bandi, maybe I could help you?

Bandi gets out grinning in embarrassment, but conscious enough to notice very sparkling blue eyes,

Guy gets in car, servants shove and car immediately starts! (The mortification!!)

Guy brings car around, smile on face as exits car; tells bandi to drive carefully and then stands watching while bandi drives off fighting a losing battle not to watch in the rear view mirror.

Bandi finds out later that said gora be new neighbor dude ๐Ÿ™‚

On a completely unconnected note, I have decided to heed mamaโ€™s advice to take up exercise. Maybe a morning walk or an afternoon walk or an evening walk (Some day, some time, he will be out on the street again!)

Interestingly, I was thinking about how nice the lingering smell of his cigarette felt in my car after he got out, not saying that I was the bandi of course! ๐Ÿ˜€

Ugh, am coming off as veddy, veddy desperate despite the amusement on his face but as a dost put it, the sparkle in his wonderful, blue eyes was because of me, I am so ready to swoon!

Not exactly the ideal way I dreamed of meeting latest focus of interest but a reliable source tells me a damsel in distress is ideal, classic and never fails!

But anyway, I have a gora as a neighbor very much on my scale and as you may or may not have noticed I’m pleased about the fact… My neighborhood just got interesting! ๐Ÿ™‚

As an update to dost, have sent over a home baked sinfully gooey chocolate cake with politely worded thank you note for help with the car the other day. Fingers Crossed!
