Well, we had a team outing on Friday, I mentioned that before right? Oh, yes, I did. Time to meet and mingle with people from other teams and all that. I was least interested. We were all counting on an outing in the wilderness, a trek, a walk to a place which could make us forget the daily hassles, traffic, and pollution of city life. But where do they take us? To a club. Go like executives, play games and have fun like, yes, like executives again.
We were supposed to leave at 3 in the afternoon, but some of us got late due to pending work. You know Friday work which you do not want to leave to Monday. As it is Mondays are spent in a daze. Who remembers what you did on Friday?
Anywayz, when we reached there, we found everyone sitting in a banquet hall. The next thing lined up was, can you guess, Housie. Has anyone ever played Housie in a party, except when it is with a family? We decided to participate rather than crib about “How anyone can play Housie in a party?” I’ll admit it was fun, solely because I have the most lively and fun loving friends and colleagues’ ever. We were laughing at every number not found, every number drawn, for no apparent reason. That’s the way it is everyday, we laugh so much, and that people from other far away cubicles have started noticing us. There is this new girl in our unit, and let me tell you, she is the weirdest person I have ever seen in my life. The way she talks, the way she dresses, the way she bosses around makes us laugh even more. I am being a bitch, right? But sorry, can’t help it, she IS the weirdest person anyone has ever seen. And moreover we think she is a lesbian. The problem does not lie in being one, the problem lies in thinking that ever girl around her is a lesbian too. She is simply impossible. We laugh a lot at her expense; we can be wicked good at that.
Okay I am steering form the topic. We were then lead to a garden, well kind of a garden. One of the things I enjoy most is to walk on the grass with naked feet. I just love that feeling, especially if the grass has a little dew on it. Just fantastic. We played, guess what again? “Tug of War” And our team won, that was fun, anything outdoor is fun.
We then had a party at the poolside, thank god for that. We danced, we ate, the chicken tikka’s and chiken kabas’ were simply amazing. Lip smaking actually. No hard drinks. Many people were crying hoarse about it, but I was happy. Some people loose their senses after drinking and spoil the entire party mood.
All in all, a happy and relaxed evening, which set the tone for an equally happy weekend.
As an aside, I watched ‘Spiderman’ and ‘Metro’ on weekend. Spiderman I hated, so boring I was about to doze off, but METRO was a welcome change, Shipa Shetty does look amazing in it, and I loved the songs too. Worth spending money on.
