Cast: Guy, Gal and Gal’s sis on visit
Time : Friday evening relaxing at home in the weekend mode.
Gal : *depressed as her new hair cut is not making her look younger. In fact, it makes her look like a wet hen with spiked feathers, owing to the stupid mousse the hairdresser used* “My hair is a disaster $(#%(#%)%”
Guy: “Here, have a glass of red wine” *Guy’s way of solving all problems in the world is by having a glass of red wine. Alternate solution is having a glass of beer of course!*
Gal: *Drinking her red wine contemplating for the nth time why the hairdresser had to use the mousse*
Sis: “Chech, remember the fringe you had ages ago???”
Gal: *getting out of her reverie* “What, where, when??? Oh, the one I had a decade ago! ”
Guy : *guffawing* “Fringe!@#$& You had a fringe ”
Gal: *selective hearing mode on. Conveniently ignores Guy. Listens to Sis*
Sis: “You know you used to look quite cute with the fringe. ”
Guy: *still guffawing* “Fringe!@#$& You had a fringe ”
Gal: *slinks away to the bedroom and chops off a lock of hair, looks at the mirror and checks whether she looks 10 years younger. Sees that answer is NO and chops off some more*
Guy & Sis: *hears no sound of Gal and comes to inspect, as they are sure that Gal is upto some mischief as she is unusually quiet*
Sis: What???@$$)@#$* You cut your hair.
Gal: *a wry grimace and tries to cover up the disaster*
Guy: *still guffawing* “Fringe!@#$& Now, you have a fringe. Is this what is called Fringe Benefits??? ”
Sis: “You know we should cut some more, then only it will be even”
Gal: *Lets Sis chop off some more hair*
Gal: *gets up in the morning. Sees the “fringe” standing up like that of Dennis, the Menace. Infact looks even worse; it actually resembles a “ra” written in Malayalam* “Sis#@*$* you better take a life insurance. There’s no way I am letting you walk away from this. ”
Guy: *howling with laugher, but tries to muffle his laughter owing to the steely glare from the gal*
Sis: *slinking away and not making any smartass comments owing to her fear for her life*
Gal * desperately applying water, oil, gel to straighten the said “RA” to make it look more decent & respectable*
Moral of the story: Never underestimate the power of one glass of red wine especially when drunk on an empty stomach. It makes you do unimaginable things….
