B: Looking for what?
B: Sigh! I too am joining you……
A: What do you have?
B: A loaf of bread! Some cheese…….. 1 cucumber, a tomato.
A: I have eggplants….waaaahhhhhh!
B: Oh! My deepest sympathies.
A: What is that sound?
B: Alarm…5 PM…to remind me.
A: About what …LA Law!

A: Gosh! You are organised aren’t you?
B: So….what have you decided.
A: Not enthused….
B: Stir fry?
A: Nah! Am going to google
B: Find out what I can do with my stuff and Whatsapp.
A: Hah! Do it yourself…anyway…all you can do is a sandwich…do you have eggs…you can rustle up an omelet or scramble it…You can be adventurous and rustle up a masala omelet.
B: That would be omelet 4 days in a row…..I want change…Gandhiji said….be the change!
A: Gandhiji surely didn’t advocate eggs to be eaten. He would have wanted you to give up eggs…that’s the change he would be rooting for.
B: I have an idea…why don’t you make those eggplants and send them across.
A: I don’t want bread and eggs.
B: I wasn’t volunteering to make and send it across.
A: So…….I am supposed to cook and you enjoy the outcome….but you will not reciprocate.
