Happy Kumar

Barely a week after reminiscing about my phantom-bridge partner, I get emailed an update on his activities. Evidently the man is an investment banker no more (although I wouldn't say that he's quite returned to the Shakespearean path... yet).

The funny thing is I didn't recognize him even after getting a hint. But then he always looked different without those little round glasses.

Anyway, good to see he's happy (and no, please don't cue any joke about the seven dwarfs).

Hahahaha. Just as I was going to turn in for the night, he'd show up next door (vela-central) for a night of loud adda. He owes me big.

Kind of strange - that ad. I thought it was promoting the fact that this guy had such a great job that he didn't have to search anymore, but it was actually calling him a chump for being happy? hmmm...

Bet he's the most talked-about guy at reunions?

i agree -- i thought it was a pretty chumpy ad myself, and in fact was a little annoyed with the friend who'd passed it on. (she'd just sent the link with a smiley, and so i viewed it a couple of times and tried to read deeper meaning into it and thought she was dropping a hint of some sort. she'd just changed jobs recently.)

km:
not yet :-D

hmm...so, per the ad, one shud not be a 'happy kumar', but a 'non-ignorant kumar'? or maybe, an 'ever discontented kumar'?! Such a kumar will never stick with one kumari, thts for sure. ;)
