The Golden Duck...

"Hey!! Is that the Indian style face-paint?" - The lady in baggy green catechized. 
"Yeah...the best quality ever"- I announced contemptuously.
"Sounds super cool ya...where do I get them in India?" - She looked mighty impressed. So was I, for a different reason though ;)
"Ah well, you can get it done at the Ripon street...authentic stuff that is..." - I decided to open the floodgates. This was my best chance.

"So, first time in India eh? Cricket fan?" - I asked hesitantly.
"Yes....." - She silently responded....*It was working* ...."From Perth, my first visit out here...huge fan of Brett Lee". I bet it was working...

We were sitting right at the top-most tier of the Club House...the best ever zone to watch cricket at the Eden Gardens and guess what I was already on a high...a different kind of high it was. Yeah mate...the Aussies were feeling the heat on the pitch, and I was feeling the pinch right inside my tummy. The "chemistry" was slowing showing up...the excitement level had shifted ends I guess. BUT.....

The crowd clamor broke my trance.... "Catch ittttt......" - The lady screeched...
*I had to*...Sehwag's powerful high-flier had transcended the boundary ropes with ease and was heading start towards our tier....I plunged to catch..as if to prove a point....BUT.....

What happened next was shocking to say the least...I missed the catch just by a fraction but landed straight on to her "cosy" lap. It could have been a glorious initiator....BUT...

The miffed shove ended my innings on a Golden Duck...her irascible voice still resounds in my ears, it haunts me deep within: "Get off me you stinking punk....RIGHT NOW..."...It was the dreadful stubble, she hated that unclean stubble..

Alright fellas: Trying to catch those big hits have often lead a number of accidents till date....


This is my third post as a part of the Protest Against Smelly Stubble Activity (P.A.S.S.) in association with BlogAdda.

This post is a response to Ekta Khetan's tag on her blog entry "Tale of Three Friends- Amar, Akbar and Anthony" ...

* I would like to tag 4 bloggers out here and invite them to express their view on the P.A.S.S. movement through their individual blog posts (post length 200-300 words). They are Uma, Pranay, Partho and Ekta again. Guys, do let me know your views. You can read my first two posts right Barbaadi.com and It is a Small World. Cheers!!!
