No, I am not standing for elections again, thank you. And no, this is not one of those personal ads with 24 of the 26 alphabets, the ones which go ‘SNWM LF AQF/RR/MQF with F18+ Pref AMWRP’.
Actually this post is precipitated by good friends/roommates who are inconsiderate enough to get married and move to distant parts of mumbai – and friends who go and get involved in dalliances which might potentially in the distant future result in their married and moving to distant parts of mumbai (distant from me ie) – they do all this with complete and utter disregard for my needs and desires. Friends these days are so selfish, I tell you.
Cut back to distant past – when friends where friends and roomies were roomies (and not married to women they loved and living in parts of mumbai which are visible only on the international map) – and every saturday morning used to be movie time! We were fortunate enough to have a 5 day week, and every saturday we went the nearest multiplex and caught the latest release – irrespective of quality, reviews, star power etc ( which saw us watching cinematic classics such as the Bullet Proof Monk )
This would be followed by a leisurely lunch, some bowling or pool and lots of fun. And we would make it back just in time to avoid the mad evening traffic, sit and drink a few beers and live the good life. And maybe go out a beer or two later in the evening. Follow it up with Sunday morning soccer. And there you have the 7 simples steps to Nirvana every weekend (some purchases necessary).
However, roomies and friends post that have failed to live upto the stellar example set by best roommate/friend ever (atleast until he got hitched). Some of them (gasp) don’t even play football. This is probably what they mean by the decay of civilisation.
However, we shall arrest decay of civilisation. We shall find good movie buddy who has the correct lack of discernment and does not turn nose up at all time classics such as Bullet Proof Monk and National Treasure. But does draw the line at watching Don, (insert combination of nK and mG) or Shoot out at Lokhandwala.
There are a lot of friends with whom movie watching is a veritable pleasure (this means you, so i hope we are still going to catch that one – right?) but sadly this arrangement lacks the stability of yore. Where are the Snowdens of yesteryear?
