I Should Learn to Shut Up Sometimes!


Hi!

I'm Dhanya. Pleased to meet you! *gives you a firm handshake*

I'm generally a very nice person at heart (or I like to think as such; yes I can be pretty ambiguous!) but the only thing that I feel is not quite right about myself is my oh-so-charming innocence. Don't think of me as an egoistic bitch as yet. No, not yet! You see, I live in a world which seems to have double meanings for everything and anything. How am I supposed to survive in this big bad world of innuendos? Pray, tell me! Tell me no?

The other day I was talking to R's friend and she asked me rather casually whether I wake up early nowadays. I replied, 'Not really! You can call us up anytime at night though. We are full time awake!'. Now, she started giggling and R was raising his eyebrows and shaking his head at me. Seeing their weird reactions, I paused for a moment or two before I realised the dreaded 'innuendo' has hit me again! Don't you get it? It's okay if you use a sentence like that if you have been married for over 20 years, but it's a strict no-no to use such phrases when you are still fairly newlyweds. *Sigh*

This isn't happening to me for the first time mind you! Previously, I told another friend to change his display picture. It was a nice picture of him showing off his skills in bowling. But he had it for a tad too long. Nothing wrong in suggesting a change of pic right? WRONG! If you use phrases like 'You have been holding balls for too long. Time to put them down', what do you think this big bad world of double meanings will interpret the innocent phrase as? Huh huh? Yes, apparently that's what I told this friend of mine. Realization dawns later as usual. *Sigh*

Yes...

I should learn to shut up sometimes! :(
