The BIG challenge

I don't know what's got into P. He has vowed that he will not speak to me for 15 days!
Why? Don't ask me... I have absolutely no idea. When I asked him what got to him? He said "He just wants to "test" how long he can stay without talking to me.

So today is Day 0.

It kinda feels very weird.. I am used to talking to him atleast 3 times a day.. Not long calls, just 5 mins each time. Sometimes he calls, and sometime I call. He has asked me not to call him over the weekend also...

A few reasons (based on the history), for him to stop talking to me. (None of them have lasted more than a few hours though):
  • When we have a fight - Now that's quite obvious.
  • When there is a India-Pakisthan cricket match being telecast live! - Absolutely "nobody" is supposed to talk to him during this time. And yes! This silence lasts for a full day - That's the longest!
  • When he has quarelled with his mother or sisters... and I support "them" instead of him.
  • When he is extremely upset with his friend A. - Don't ask me why he stops talking to "me" at such situations.. but he does that anyways.
  • When either me or him are on-travel overseas.
  • And ofcourse when he sleeps! - Nothing can disturb him, my phone calls are blissfully ignored.
In the present scenario, none of the above condition holds good... so why this naatak?

I HATE THIS!

chill.. I guess it is all part of exploring one's space.. or maybe some mauna-vratam that is IN with guys nowadays (which I aint aware of!)

best part? the 16th day! when you would say "somebody stop me" :D

Well, 15 days is too long a time! I am sure even he can't hold on till then to whatever he's started!

Anyways, I am sure you will accept the test like you have so gracefully accepted every other so-called wierd idiosyncrasies of the lucky man!

All the best!

@pavan: Paaavam da.. I think I have eaten his head so much.. he really does need some space.. ok. Given :) Let him enjoy while he can ;-)

@adi: That's what even I think so... But I want to know the reason behind this sudden decision! This surprise is killing me!

Hardu said...

May be P has found someone else. He he. You know I am kidding as that is impossible. :) But why did you start counting from 0 instead of 1?? So, is it 0 to 14 or 0 to 15? That will make it one day more. ;)

pavan kumar said...

[hardu] I guess shark is in Comp Sci.. they start counting from 0

shark said...

@hardu: He..he.. HE finding somebody else... no chance :) He is struck with me for life! I think he just needs a break from me ;-)

@pavan: I am not comp sci.. but since I am right now in the software industry, I could not help myself ;-)

Hey shark!

You can take respite as the cricket matches in Srilanka have been washed out :)))

with the description you gave of 'P', I'm sure that he will not wait for 15days... I reckon he must have said 15hrs ;-) you mistook it for days ;)))

shark said...

@wb: You guessed it right :) He called in less than 15 hours ;-)

bah humbug! and just when i was looking forward to yet another blog with a day-counter!

tell me to wait until after marriage for his next maun vrata. by then, it will be termed "normal behaviour'.

whoops - "tell him" i meant, not me!

- s.b.

shark said...

@s.b: I hope you know that P "sometimes" visits this place... don't give him ideas!

Hardu said...

So that was all is it? 15 hours! He he he. What selfcontrol! ;)

shark said...

@hardu: It's not his selfcontrol... It's just that I am so "IRRESISTIBLE"...muhahahahah ;-)))

WinterBlue said...

:-) I can imagine... he is such a nice guy. You are such a lucky girl ;-) But, did he tell why he didn't want to talk to you??? You must have done something wrong ;-)))

--Hardu-- As shark described self, I think 15hours is something to talk about. It is more than half a day you know ;-)

shark said...

@wb: How do YOU know he is a nice guy?
ANd how can you be sure that I am not NICER than him ;-)

WinterBlue said...

Definitely he is nicer than you. Please no harm meant... just about that blog where you mentioned about the remote control or key... your description and understanding about 'p' just makes me mention that way ;-)))

Velu Nair said...

The lull is bound to move over pretty much soon, and things are gonna be back to fine. Maybe finer.

Buck up. Its gonna be all right!
:)

shark said...

@velu: Oh the lull is over long back..:) see some of the comments above...:) But then Thanks for those words :)

shark said...

@wb: He is nice da.. very nice infact :)

Hardu said...

Yeah, he is very nice. Much nicer than Shark. :P He he he. I am sure Shark is on her way to kill me. :)))) Just Kidding. Both are made for each other- Equally nice. :)

mysorean said...

Ayayyappa! The who's nicer fight is it?! That's never going to end! Neither between the pair or among the others!

So he called! As expected only!

shark said...

@hardu: :)

@adi: The fight will stop automatically when everybody agrees that I AM THE BEST ;-)

I will just say .. 'This is a very romantic post'.
I made prashanth read that article which you wrote about 'P'.. He is not a computer savvy, surprisingly he read the whole long post.. Just gave a smile & said.. chennagide.
His chennagide for such things are like 'Janma saartaka' comments types. Take Good Care Shark!...
ps - This is a very old post to be read in the year end! :-)
