Hmmm, my mind told me, beware! ‘This cute-looking, the innocent voiced young lady is asking you a loaded question’.
In such situations, I never answer the question. I ask another question! Smart na!
I smiled at her and asked, “Why are you asking this question, my dear?”
She floored me with what she said, “Because I trust you. And, you are not conservative. And, you can understand the youth of this age. And, you are wise.”
She completely had me. With every reason that she gave, my chest swelled with self-pride. A few more reasons and I am sure my lungs would have popped out of my rib cage.
With eyes twinkling with a new, deep, pampered self-image, I replied, “When I was your age, I had made a small list. This list has always guided me in selecting my friends. Funnily, this list has also guided me in ensuring I remain on track.” This is how the list looks…
DON’T BE IMPRESSED BY :
– Quantity of Followers
– …what they have
– Who helps them
– Quality of Friends
– …what they share
– Whom they help
I searched the face of Ketki to see if she was satisfied. She looked lost in thoughts.
