Don't drink and....

Well it's quite easy to say don't drink and drive.... don't drink and do this ... don't drink and do that..!!
Thanks a lot for the advice folks!

For the record - I don't drive (vehicles) at all.. so drinking and driving is out of the question!
Anyways for a change this ain't about me.... or well not in the sense that the advice is for me. It so happened that we attended a party this weekend and the drinks were in free flow mode... Everything was coming along nicely till the time came for the bar to shut shop. Heated arguments followed between a couple of the protagonists and the bouncers! I stepped in (i must have been out of m mind) to cool things down and voila the ire turned my way.
I tried a lil bit of reasoning ( what else can you do with drunk retards) but none of it seemed to work and when things were looking like they'd be getting out of hand and onto the face - sups pulled me out of the joint. I was hopping mad and not having consumed as much alcohol as I normally would - this was translating into rage!
Lucky me - she got me into the car and we continued the party elsewhere.
Their party continued to the lockup where the hotshot criminal lawyer got a tast of the 3rd degree... or so I presume!

This is not merely a vent out session - there is a moral of the story too.... it's coming up in the next few lines.

Don't drink and drive - you could kill someone else.
Don't drink and play the good samaritan - you could kill yourself.
Always have a sane person around in case you decide to drink.... keeps your chestnuts out of the fire

If life was a Hollywood film... the action would be intense,
It's actually closer to Bollywood... with the same people and the same stories.

Giving up on real life opportunities to create the iconic twists, the hallmark of great cinema and it's storytellers. If every story had the same ending, how would one imagine the what-ifs of life?

Some stories come out best when they start with an ending. It makes for more poignant stories when you deal with certain characters. There is an element of drama on an unfulfilled love story or unrequited love too.

The mundane is never enough for some of us. The happily ever after is an ending from the fairytales of the brothers Grimm.

The piano man

Sitting bored in the mall when we could be shopping for her gift. The lady is on an official call, so I'm sitting by the wayside observing the man in the centre of the atrium. He's playing a piano. Hence the name - piano manHe's playing a melody oblivious to the sea of humanity around him. No mean task as it is. His tunes run a plethora of melody with no fixed agenda as it is. He looks around hoping someone would make a request - but the crowd treats him like they would an invisible entity. There's pain in the back of his mind and heart. Nothing hurts an artiste more than invisibility. He never knew he'd end up like this playing the walking melody to thousands. His music had always been planned on the good graces of melody with people singing in chorus.
That things did not go as planned, well no surprise there. Circumstance might have been fortuitous had he been willing to bend over. Ever the true blooded artiste, he'd chosen the path less traveled.Now the wai…
