Recently I got a mail from someone who I presume had been at my blog, which read:
"Dear Blunt Edges,
Who the @^*% are you?
It was said in good humour, or wasn’t it?!?! We exchanged a couple of mails, and then I thought why not answer X here instead.
I’m a terrible blogger who surfaces once in a blue moon, and is unapologetic about it.
I’m not your guy next door, unless of course you’re actually my neighbour.
I’m the younger brother, who was jealous of his “better looking, better at sports, better at studies” elder brother his entire school life.
I’m the cricket fanatic who screamed his lungs out when India won the world cup.
I’m the guy who knows it’s not gonna be happily ever after with the love of his life, and has made his peace with it.
I’m the optimist who lives in the hope that the 2012 prophecy would be true.
I’m the guy who knows he’s definitely gonna get a dog one day and call it Kibber.
I’m the biker who gets pissed when someone calls his Avenger an Enticer, but beams when some kid in a rick at the signal points at it and shouts “Terminator ka bike”.
I’m the lazy ass who can hit the bed at midnight, sleep till 2 in the afternoon, and then start yawning around 4 in the evening.
I’m the IT guy who does zero exercise, even though he’s worried about the extra pounds he’s putting on.
I’m the sms addict who rarely sends out a text these days, coz his chat-friend isn’t in town anymore.
I’m the movie buff who still gets goose bumps when he’s watching Pulp Fiction.
I’m the reason Dominoes brought back the cheese burst pizza (or so I’d like to believe).
I’m the aspiring writer, who dreams of getting a call one day from some publisher asking him to write a book or some newspaper/magazine offering him a column (and a kick-ass pay of course!)
I’m the TV magnet who cringes at the sight of “reality shows”.
I’m the guy who was always approached by his friends in school to write love letters for their girls.
I’m the blogger who never finds the time or drive to blog, but suddenly gets tempted to do it, when something far more important demands attention.
I’m the guy who skips breakfast on most mornings for lack of company.
I’m also the guy who more than compensates for it during lunch and dinner.
I’m the bored reader who thinks I have just penned a load of crap.
I’m the employee who spends his week counting down to the weekend.
I’m the reason my Dad’s car has a major scratch on the rear left.
I’m the weirdo who hasn’t yet watched LOTR and Twilight for the simple reason that it didn’t appeal to him, and also the one who watched Avatar and Inception coz of all the hype and was bored within the first 30minutes.
In the words of the stupid common man, “Bheed toh dekhi hogi na aapne? Usme se koi ek shakal chun lijiye, main woh hu” ;)
I dunno if X would prefer this, or would just rather be content with my name and a link to my FB profile. Trust me buddy, you would never have got to know this much about me there.
PS: I’m also the blogger who hates seeing “0 comments” under his post! ;)
