astro speaks for Rs 3.00...BLAH!!
"kaisi hogi aapki shadi---marzi hogi aapki ya aapke gharwalo ki.To know type Karen Pyar DOB & send to 53131.rs3-SMS."
now this sms was enough to brighten up urs truly's monotonous day...after showing off the sms to her friends for a whole 5 mins and making a huge joke out of it--saying that i dont really believe in such stuff yada yada yada, i quickly went aside making an excuse for coffee and typed 'KAREN PYAR DOB' with DOB as my birthdate(now u rnt allowed to laugh at me just because im being honest with u..hmpf!)
within exactly 5 seconds (yes when im nervous i count time..wat-e-ver! :-/), i got a msg saying...
you have typed wrong keyword! to know what marriage will you have-love marriage or arrange marriage, TYPE PYAR DDMMYYYY e.g......--RS3-sms
ARGGGGHHHHH!! thats when i noticed their english or rather hinglish...to think i was actually wondering who this 'karen' could be...hmpf!!
i mean hell! why cant they be more specific...how am i supposed to know that 'karen' is a hindi word those assholes used in an english sentence??(they meant 'karein')..*rolling eyes*
bet u dint realise that too while reading the msg..did u??.TYPE Karen Pyar my LEFT foot!!
3 rs gone..what a waste!!
anyways i wasent going to give up so easily...so this time i reread the text msg and typed with caution taking care that im typing no extra alphabet or word or punctuation mark or whatever! :-/
so that means i typed 'PYAR DDMMYYYY' with my birthdate details instead of the latter ofcourse!
again i wait...5 seconds...
now im almost convinced that these guys think that im not destined to get married ever atleast in this life and probably are making up nice ways to break the news to me..sigh!
just then tringgggg! (yeah thats my msg beep..i know its funny...who asked u anyways? :-/)
i hurriedly opened up my inbox like an enthusiastic kid at the candy store, keeping one eye on my friends who'd begun to get suspicious as to what i was upto...
you have 95% chance of love marriage..type partner DOB to know who will be your ideal life partner. TYPE MAKE to make ur arranged marriage in love
WHATTT THE **@@3####@#*@&^@ (stop counting the characters there..ul NEVER guess the swear word!:-/)
u mean these guys actually tell me in percentage and stuff...now how cool was that??
and to top that,they even tell me how to make my 5% 'to-be-arranged-marriage' turn into a love marriage....
whoaa now i wonder whats going to happen?
do they mean that typing 'type make' will give me some chant which'll supposedly 'make' my ex's current girlfriend allergic to him and perhaps then would 'make' him come back to me...or is it something like its gonna 'make' me fall in love with the first prospective bridegroom thats gonna be brought my way?? *rolling eyes*
and WAIT A FRIGGIN MINUTE!! did they just say 'type PARTNER DOB to know who ur ideal partner is'????????
so urs truly was all tempted now...because 1)she has stopped believing in the concept of 'ideal partner'
2) she almost choked when they said 'YOUR ideal partner'...har har!!
u mean MY ideal partner??? now thats funny!!*rolling eyes*
(ok for people who dont know me that well, im kinda soo over this phase of knights and shining armours and horses et al...so its definitely going to take more than a stupid sms to get me to believe in the tooth fairy, easter bunny, santa clause..cupid...ideal partners etc etc)
ok now u might think why is she sending those sms's to those dumb 'astro'services then...well the only answer to that would be--thats my idea of fun! i like to waste 3 rupees once in a while...u got a problem with that? :-/
ok so as i was saying, urs truly was tempted and in one weak stupid moment, it HAPPENED!
the damned sms had gone thru...yes the same sms which said 'PARTNER DOB'
the sms wch was destined to rule my fate...my lurrrveeee!
the sms which was supposed to tell me about my mr right!
*drumrolls in the background*
now my friends started getting annoyed and swore they were leaving if i dont get back to them that very instant...i had sensed a tone of suspicion in their 'priii...who are u texting' every time they heard my cell screeching(but i was sure the lazy asses that they are will never move an inch to find out and i was like 3 feet away near the coffee counter, engaged in my new activity)
yesss i had got it...my ideal partner...now i only had to go and hunt him down...i said a silent prayer hoping there would be enough fuel in my spaceship for the hunt...and i pressed select on the 'inbox' option...
it was from 53131!!!
i was overjoyed!!
they were going to disclose to me the one secret that i thought never really existed---MY IDEAL PARTNER!
i was exuberant...there MUST be something called 'love' and 'ideal partners' afterall...how else would these 53131 guys sound soo confident otherwise?
i hurriedly selected the 'open msg' option...and this is what it read...
your partner name starts from C,G,I,S...
to know ur partners personality type PARTNER 1st letter of the name.e.g PARTNER A and send it to 53131..charges RS 3-SMS
to hell with them!! i'd rather setlle with the unpredictability that life brings instead of wasting all this money in texting these astro guys even if their predictions did come true...hmpf! :-/
and then again,'what is thy name' would make a wonderful opening line when my knight in shining armour sweeps me off my feet onto his horse with cupid playing 'darling u look wonderful tonight' on his violin as we ride towards the setting sun...*all dreamy eyed*
uhoh...just by the way, did i tell u that i was really over all this?? *raises an eyebrow*
sigh! guess we dreamers never learn...no? ;)
