"You are selfish!"
I have lost count of people who have told me that. The funny thing is I almost always retort with a "Yeah! I am selfish! And you are not?". I seriously have no idea what people intend to do by saying that to me coz -
a. It doesn't hurt me.
b. It doesn't make me sad.
c. It doesn't make me happy either!
d. I already know I'm selfish! :D
... So this dialogue especially leaves me amused, if not anything else. Come to think of it, isn't everyone selfish? We all want to be happy -- isn't that selfish? We all want others to act according to our will - pamper us when we want, be pissed off with certain people when we want... and when that doesn't happen we are sad. Isn't that selfish? I don't know why being called selfish is considered as a bad quality, when everyone IS selfish!
I am sure that almost anyone was able to relate to Kareena Kapoor in Jab We Met when she said 'Main Apni Favorite Hoon!'. ;) And why not? Three cheers to selfishness, I say!
P.S : My net is down, and I am using my mobile as a modem nowadays. I can't visit blogs (including my own) as much as I want to coz of this. Some blogs are so difficult to load especially those with Disqus comments! :( Will visit soon! Till then, adios! :)
P.P.S - Post not meant to hurt anyone. Thought this one was long overdue considering that I have been getting this lovely dialogue a lot for the past few years now! :D
P.P.P.S - Dhanya admitting to being a selfish person, doesn't mean she's a dangerous psycho. She will NOT use weapons or hit you if you hurt her. Or will she? ;) :D
