Not On Assignment

I have been tagged…

with 3 comments

I have been tagged to reveal my darkest secrets… Now I am not as brave as the young lady who tagged me so this will be more about my oddities and less about secrets:
* It takes me a very long time to make new friends but I am very loyal to the ones I befriend.
* I am very trustworthy. People love confiding in me. I have been carrying around secrets of some people for decades.
* I never pick up calls from names not listed on my phone.
* I have been buying – and will continue to do so – only Nokia handphones.
* I always flip through a magazine from cover to back cover before coming back and settling on a story to read.
* I rarely wear a watch but when I do it is on the inside wrist.
* I hate pseuds and people who put on accents.
* I am different persons at home and office.
* People say there can never be a man-woman relationship without the sex element thrown in. But I have had some very successful platonic relationships with women/girls.
* I get along famously with women whose names start with a ‘S’.
* I find it more comfortable talking to women. Men are such bores – they are guarded all the time and have such massive egos!
* I love women who are good talkers. I could just sit for hours in front of a woman, watching her jump effortlessly from one topic to another.
* I have preserved letters and gifts that my pen friend sent me from Canada.
* I tend to sweat a lot in humid Bombay so I always carry around three fresh napkins in my office bag.
