Well dearies! Looks like heart does go on in the present era! Fast and furiously! Love now is a venture where two morons set out armed with a mental pre-nup for short term individual profits on a speed boat no less. No we don’t reflect, mope or re-enact a Devdas if the boat well, rocks or even capsizes! Oh no! That’s for losers! We move on!
There is a method though to the madness. We ‘tweet’ our paeans/pains, with Eminem swearing in the background or Britney Spears crooning – Oops I did it again! We know how to shrug it off like dandruff on our shoulders. After all we have legacies to leave for or share with our followers! After which it is zoom-ville again, on the Harley Davidson of life on breakneck speed! Until we find the speed-breakers called love where we screech to a stop, our back wheels up in the air every now and then!
We never stop looking! When we do find, we swear by it, screaming from rooftops that it is the love of the century! We just get carried away by the ahem! ‘captivating baritone voice’, the ‘flawless Oxford English’, ‘the debonair charm’, ‘those caramel chocolate eyes’, ‘the flick of the hair’ and the ‘charismatic personality’. Even if the whole world sneers – ‘What were you thinking?’ We justify it all by professing undying love.
But then when the horizon of boredom yawns and finally bites one in the a*** with much ferocity, we swat it off it like it were an irksome mosquito bite! And switch directions smoothly, no skid marks mind you. Today the ‘Seven Year Itch’ has also undergone a radical reboot to a ‘Seven month Itch’ and occasionally a ‘Seven Day Itch’.
Finally of course, if the ‘Roving eye’, the ‘meandering man’ or the ‘straying spouse’ should risk the chances of a large financial loss or just plain loss of face, we could always issue a press release, a cute ‘couple photo’ on twitter and facebook, blame the CIA for plotting to overthrow a ‘match made in heaven’ and live happily ever after. The ‘Cattle Class’ and the ‘Holy Cows’ always forget and forgive !!!
