A fever...

A fever...

Makes you prioritize your life. You will still watch Johnny Depp's antics on screen, but will sacrifice fashion and will go bundled up in a winter coat in Gurgaon.

Makes you talk less and listen more. You have to, especially if your throat hurt every 30 seconds.

Makes you prioritize your work. First things first! Every minute is a race against falling flat on the bed.

Makes you develop your own diet. If I have been eating the way I do when I am ill, I would never get sick. Body knows what to eat and drink, and what to avoid.

Makes you health conscious. It takes guts to ask someone else not to smoke around you, especially when you are not smoking. The times when I had ended up stinking of cigarette smoke [ both sexes guilty ]... but a fever puts me in the self preservation mode and make me move away.

Men Continued

However, I would strongly recommend any girl to have some guys as close friends around. Its all very well to have women friends around, but you do need men to tell you :

"Stop being such a drama queen!" Honey, lets face it - we would love our lives to be one long Mills and Boons or Yash Chopra/Karan Johar movie. However, it is seldom so. Life is boring and most of the times, very ordinary. But we tend to view it with 100 garishly dressed dancers and loads of background music. The men tell us to get a reality check, and move on with our life.

"That looks stupid on you." Your best guy friends never let you go out looking like someone from a kid's nightmare. Their incredulous looks and inability to mask that "are you really going to pay money to wear it? " look save you from many fashion fumbles.

"He is not worth it." Our women friends are expected to say it. But when the men speak out against one of their creed, it sounds more credible.

"Anything is fine." Really, you can wear anything on a guys night out with the boys. However, it is only advisable if you guys are 100% friends.

"I will pay for it." And most of the times, they will. While it is alright to split the bill equitably amongst your girl pals, it does feel nice to be treated to something once in a while.

"Lets watch it." They do not mind watching comic book movies the second time just to give you company.

"It's cool, dude." They are fine with you forgetting their birthdays, even if they happen to remember yours.

"@#!#? ^*$@~@#$!!!" When was the last time you really had an abuse session with your gal pals? We need men to truly let down our wild side and to airlift us from there when things get dirty.

"I'm so sorry.." They are. They truly are when they think that they have hurt us. But rather than telling it like our gal pals, they make it up to us in a thousand different ways.

Men... How can women ever hate them?

Men!

Lets get back to my favorite subject: Men. First the Yucky stuff: The freaks in Orkut.

What makes people think that I would be interested in adding totally unknown men as my 'friend'? Why, O why; do they think that I would be oh so impressed by their pick up messages and corny teasers? Why do they think that if they say a 'Hi' or comment that I have an interesting profile - News Flash : I DON'T have one, so don't even try that line on me! - I would want to talk to them?

Now the hotty stuff : FIFA World Cup.

Whoever said that women doesn't love football is an idiot. We do love football, or for that matter, any game where fit and virile men wear shorts and run around with funky hairdos. Especially when we are surrounded by beer bellies and balding heads, even a Peter Crouch looks sexy.

We do know the fundas about offside and the yellow and red cards. But still, it is fun to ask a man to explain offside. Last night at a friend's place, we had a dude explain offside using Nokia communicators ( there were a couple lying around ) and a match box. It was actually pretty entertaining. Gals out there, try it out. It makes men make some weird football analogies. Last night it was compared to parking a car in the garage.

Our favorite part of the game is when they score. The antics of men when they kick a ball into a net is pretty much fun to watch. However, the most interesting part is when they take their shirts off - ooops, exchange the jerseys after the match.

Now the sweet stuff : Marathon smses.
It is really sweet when they dutifully reply to your emails and smses, call you up and listen to your smallest details of life, and advice you and cheer for you from the sidelines like big brothers and finally give you a good night kiss - via sms - and push you off to bed.

Now for the cutsy stuff: Wee bit jealousy.

It is very cute when men get jealous, but feel too high-minded to let you know that they are jealous. It is cuter still when they try to put it in such a way that they are not really jealous, but giving you good advice which just happen to tell you to not buy that new male friend of yours any birthday gifts. But the cutest is when they get caught in the act and realize that you have been knowingly needling them and go all incommunicado.

Men! Such a lot of work unfinished, but life would be much duller without them.
