Love tag, no scrap, no tag, no scrap. Tag. Tagged. Been.

Even when I was young and impressionable, I did not like scrap books. Even then I felt that what I feel today is not how I’d like to feel or be remembered 20 years from now. Except for that one interesting question in someone’s book about what I’d do if I knew I had only a few days left to live.

I’d written about surrounding myself with people I love, making love, eating, seeing sights, and partying, giving gifts, and dying after I’ve made delicious love with the loved one. Which is rather scarring for the poor lover, but into each life a little rain and all that…
Now though, I’ll just walk into the sea and end it all. Hopefully after all the above fun stuff except dying in that poor man’s arms.

See what I mean? What you feel now does not ever make who you are even if it shapes you to become that.

When I finally succumbed to pressure and decided to have a scrap book as a way of remembering all my school/college friends (who are all now on Orkut and so they are still scrapping, so much for remembering them fondly and that trip down memory lane), the book was one of those ready-made affairs that I bought at the stationary shop near my house. None of those painstakingly created memoir look-alikes that all the others in my class had.

And now, Suma, my friend from work tags me with this bilge about love. Since she was also a victim like me, and is rather polite as a person (just as I am), I do not blame her wholly.

But I always say the best way to know about love and sex is to just do the damn thing! And hopefully, not brag.

If you are sensible, kindly stop reading at this point.

Okay, since you insist, here’s the tag.

RULE #1 People who have been tagged must write their answers on their blogs and replace any question that they dislike with a new question formulated by themselves.

RULE #2 Tag at least 6 people to do this quiz and those who are tagged cannot refuse. These people must state who they were tagged by and cannot tag the person whom they were tagged by. Continue this game by sending it to other people.

I am breaking Rule 2. This bilge must end with me.

This can be the deed I am known for hitherto fore. (I’ve always wanted to say hitherto fore. :))

1. If your lover betrayed you what would your reaction be?
Depends entirely on the lover. Is he really that good in bed? Otherwise, it’s more, poor woman/man whoever they might be!

2. What’s it that you see in an ideal partner?
Since ideal partners have been changing since the first crush at age 5, it’s kinda hard to pin down. But commonalities include a little bite, a little wit, a slice of sharp, a trifle sweet, kissable lips with smart-asses. (Pun unintended, I’m one of those exceptions who don’t check out men’s asses.)

3. What, according to you, is the perfect date?
What’s the budget? It could range from spending an absolutely hedonistic day together to simply hanging out and running errands together.

4. Would you like to have children soon enough? Or would you wait till your mid-thirties for the first child?
The question, sweetie-darling, is ‘will I ever have them?’, period.

5. Will you fall in love with your best friend?
Been there done that. Not sure where it’s gotten me yet.

6. Which is more blessed: loving someone or being loved by someone?
Oh please. Good sex because you are both into it, is the most blessed of all things. The rest is just so much buggering bollocks.

7. How long do you intend to wait for someone you love?
Someone in love to do what?

8. If the person you secretly like is attached, what will you do?
If you’ve come till here, do you really think that I am capable of any sort of secrecy when it comes to things about me?

9. What do you think are the foundation stones of a good relationship?
Oh well, let’s see, conversation, sex, commitment with good prefixed to all the terms? But apparently when you think something is real good, someone else thinks that it isn’t good enough for you.

10. What according to you is the most beautiful thing about relationships or marriage?
All that talk with all that action.

11. Where do you see yourself 10 years from now?
Having the rudeness to refuse to write stuff like this.

But seriously, in some sort of a relationship with someone I enjoy being with. And with hopefully, my six/seven year old not having learnt to say “fuck”.

12. What’s your fear?
Since I’ve been dealt it already, I’ll pass, thanks.

13. What kind of person do you think the person who tagged you is?
A victim.

14. Would you rather be single and rich or married and poor?
If I’m single and rich, I’d sit in a posh place in some exotic city and order a bottle of Baileys with crushed ice and make eye-contact with that interesting looking man who’s been staring at me. See the point? Not single anymore.

If I’m married and poor, we’d dream about the Baileys on ice but drink each other instead so the child can have an education. Money has nothing to do with it.

15. If you fall in love with two people simultaneously who will you pick?
I take forever to fall for one person. Two? Ha!

16. Would you give all in a relationship?
If it’s not whole and complete, it is simply not.

17. Would you forgive and forget someone no matter how horrible a thing he has done?
I have, so let’s move on, shall we, darling?

18. Do you prefer being single or in a relationship?
As long as you are having fun, what does it matter?

19. Your all time favourite song. Only ONE. And why?
This to someone who has a love songs playlist, a songs for sex playlist, a happy songs playlist, an I-am-mind-fucked songs playlist, a running to hell playlist, and an absolute absolve playlist. And each of these playlists have over 300 songs easily.

Why? Let’s see, there are simply way too many to pick just one, may be?

Sweety darling, can you believe it, we are done!


About Bhumika's Boudoir

I love to laugh, and end up being a part of high drama and stormy emotion even when I don't pursue it. Being creative, and communicating with people get me going. I enjoy all the good things in life especially those that are slightly risque, and apologise little, if ever, for all that I do. Literature is a passion and so is music.

    Victim? Me? Puhlease, girlfriend!I intend to spend another new year’s eve pitying ALL those men who could have snagged me, but didn’t. :P.


  2. That obviously, yes. But no, I was referring to victim of tagging only.


  3. 'Smee! says:

    That’s a long fucking tag 😐


  4. Exactly what I said. But i did it. I’m a good person. Go right ahead and write about it in your blog as well if you want to, but oh dear God, 19 questions on love!

    Bhumika, even I have never checked out men’s asses. Ever. Also, if a man fancies me, I’m so busy ensuring I look nice and sexy that I forget to look at him. Then it’s way too late. The deed is usually done and hopefully I haven’t made an ass of myself. For some reason, the smart ass bit made me grin like crazy, so had to respond.

    Bhu darling, I’m good too, but not half as patient. On love – not 19, not 1.
