Zee

16 years ? I can't believe it. Thats one heckuva long time to tolerate neone. Leave alone someone like YOU who can be a real pain-you-know-where.... But I guess you are one of those pains that can feel really nice too ;-) Now don't think dirty about the rest. Neway I digress.. You've followed me everywhere from school through undergrad till postgrad and though I must confess that its been tiresome to have a regular nemesis wherever I go, I wudn't mind at all if we were in the same workplace too. Atleast I would have someone to whom I could crib continuously. (I swear I did my bit by fwding ur CV but somehow the ppl here seemed to realise they didn't need two of my kind)...which brings us to the one thing that continues to rankle me most about you and well.. me. Those inevitable odious comparisons...

The 'women in our lives' who claim to know both of us really well (I guess there aren't many of this kind but atleast the last 2) have said on more than a few occasions that we are so alike but in my personal opinion nothing could be further away from the truth. How I wish that were true though !! Alas, it is never meant to be !! There you are at one end of the spectrum - smart, sensible, sensitive, intelligent, dashing, winsome..I could go on but then I am beginning to get a wee bit jealous and that is a bad trait.. as you've reminded me so often...and hence suffice to say that you are every (well....almost) woman's dream...and here I am at the opposite end..Can I skip the adjectives please ? Wailll..Waill.. You've always been the aspirational model for me..and will continue to be too...

On this special day, as you turn yet another year older (and wiser) here's wishing and praying that you get hitched soon so that the women who find us 'alike' finally turn in my direction.

Bugger, Happy Birthday ;-)
