I like Sundays even if it signifies the beginning of another week. Another Monday.
Another week of college. Now, don’t get me wrong, I do like my subjects (well, most of ’em, anyway.). It’s just the process of going to college that I dislike. And Sundays are the days for relaxation and going out and a day when everyone is at home. However, the last few hours of Sunday is spent starting assignments and other work for the Monday.
Anyway, today is Lucid‘s B’day.
So, BWC and I spent yesterday getting her ‘gifts.’
#1. The dress-shopping: In case you are unaware, Lucid here loves dresses. Especially red ones. And so, we figured, the best thing we could do is make a video for her of us shopping for dresses. We head to this mall and walk into the clothes store. And we film us heading up an escalator and us looking around the store. The two of us are entire clueless as to where the dress section. We walk around the place looking for dresses(Yes, we were lost!). We even venture into the furniture section. We’re filming all of this, when some store guy says no photography. Oh well. We did manage to get something. And then, we get confused as to where the exit is.
We did buy her :
- A photo frame with a sketchy picture of us.
- A painting for her new shelves in her room.
- A welcome mat for her room!
#2: Get random people to say ‘Happy Birthday’ on camera: This is by far the craziest thing we’ve ever done. We walked around the mall, asking people if they’d be willing to say happy birthday on the camera. Well, asking random people to say ‘happy birthday’ is weird, looking at their awkward expressions is weirder. We spent about 4 hours stalking people and looking at them and judging whether they were potential ‘happy birthday’ say-ers. And we spent another hour on the beach looking for people. It was hilarious. BWC and I would take turns asking people. And our conclusion: People in groups (and larger the groups are) were more prone to saying no than individuals.
So that was yesterday. A day with these random social interactions.
Today, we met up and went for lunch at an Italian restaurant. The highlight of the menu was this creamy custard like dessert which was just heavenly. Also, Lucid’s brother had a strange dog-like fascination with the table-cloth; he sniffed it a couple of times.
So now, the Sunday’s almost done and I must start college work.
