Pretty Woman

After my last post I'd decided to take a break from blogging.You see attending college regularly and keeping up with all the assignments and lab-work takes out quite a portion of your time.And besides at the end of the day when you get back home all exhausted all you wanna do is sip on a cup of coffee(or any soft drink in my case :P) and relax.You hardly have any energy left to sit down and type out a blog post.
But hey I like blogging.A lot.So I can't stay away for long now can I?

Just consider the following 55-word story as a come-back post.




I applied generous amounts of lip-gloss and readjusted my corset dress.

The lady in the mirror stared back at me.
I wasn't sure how I looked though.
I needed my daughter's opinion.
'So?....' I asked her nervously.
'Dad....you look gorgeous.Now go.' she said in a bored voice.



P.S:Do let me know what you think. :P

P.P.S:I might disappear for a while again.But I'll pay a visit from time to time and try to comment on all your posts.But just in case I can't please be a little considerate guys.After all I'm busy! :)

Have a wonderful Diwali everyone!
(without the noisy crackers)

damn that was good.....i didn't see that coming!!!the only reason indian men will take up cross-dressing is to get into a women's queue said the great chetan bhagat!! :P

hope you get time to blog from time to time...don't let lab-reports kill the writer in you!!cheers!!

@Anish:Actually you can interpret this story in other ways too.In this story I imagined the man as a trans-sexual who has had a divorce recently and a sex-change operation maybe.And he is dressing up for a date. :P
Actually I got this idea from a novel I read a year back where a man broke off his engagement to his girlfriend because he was a trans-sexual and wanted to start a life as a woman.
I know these topics are pretty much controversial but that doesn't mean we should avoid them.

@Sid:Lol don't eww him.A trans-sexual or a cross-dresser is also a human being you know.
Keep in touch :)

@HR: :)

heavealie said...

a perfect example of 55 fiction *starts clapping*hehe this was pretty good!!a very pleasant twist to the tale!!keep writing!!

Meenakshi said...

din't know what to expect in the beginning; yet was not prepared for what it ended on.. took a second to register , but took minutes to stop smiling..

Keep Blogging!

Cheers*

Samadrita said...

@heavealie:Thankee and I will :)

@Meenakshi:Hehe I'm glad it managed to have that effect. :)

Daone said...

Arigatou? Its actually 'Arigato'...

Samadrita said...

Both are correct I think.I came upon a lot of sites which had 'Arigatou gozaimasu' instead of 'Arigato gozaimasu'
Check this out for example-

It's all about the pronunciation.

Akansha Agrawal said...

Err.. I am bad with this 55 fiction thingy, but liked this... didn't get it as a cross-dresser though... comments pad kar hi samajh aaya :-s

Haan I know engg can kill... my blog gets updated so rarely when regular college is on... Koi nahi... we'll wait for updates! :D

Samadrita said...

@Akansha:Lol well I don't blame you.You surely won't find cross-dressers in a country like ours.
Anyway keep in touch :)
