It was only after noticing the 12 odd bits of satiny fabric that were dumped on my dresser drawer by my sister that I realized the past week was "Friendship Week". You see, unlike most people in this city, I don't get 20 text messages that are basically different varieties of extremely creative poetry such as "Rozes r red, Violats r bloo, bt frndzz like u, r vrrry few!! happy frndshp week my dear frnd frndz forevaaaa!! :-) :-) ;-) ;-)" to gently remind me of the week's specialty.
No, my friends don't send me such messages, not because we prefer the silent comfort of knowing that we're beyond such rhymes but because none of them are maarvadi.
But friendship, you see, is beyond maarvadi forwards.

Friendship, is earning + enjoyment.

    or even lesbians trappen in men's bodies.

  24. The whole friendship day scene was never popular in Canada. It was on one of my trips to India, when I had to teach all of my girl cousins how to make friendship bracelets, did I realize how huge it was there!
