Arnab's guide to meeting Arnab

A few things:

  • I don't look like the picture above. I used to. Now I don't.
  • I look more or less like Pierce Brosnan, only shorter, darker and slightly less handsome.
  • I don't look like what I used to a few months ago.
  • I have no freaking idea why I seem to look "changed", or different to people, so don't try to bring that into the conversation. I will not like it if you do. Imagine when you come pick up your own mother at the airport, and she trolleys past you. The same mother who's known you for over 21 years.
  • Yes I am 21 years old. But I act younger.
  • I like to slide on shiny tiling in malls and stores, and suchlike. If that embarasses you, you're too old to be meeting me anyway.
  • If you ever say "grow up" during our meet up, I will leave immediately.
  • I am new to Mumbai. That makes me a guest, and you are thus the host. Guests don't pay for lunch. Or dinner. Hope you catch my thrift drift.
  • If you're an extremely boring person, I will seem like a very good listener to you. In reality, I'll be thinking about recursive activation spread functions or things like that.
  • I'm also a very sweet, fun and friendly person. I might sound presumptuous here, but I'm not, you low life!

Disclaimer: In case I've met you recently, these facts have absolutely nothing to do with you. Seriously. They are based on things I thought up while riding on the FourTwentyTwo this morning, and on irritating people I met long back.
