Intimate moments

She was just inches away from a really personal part of my anatomy. She was looking straight into my eyes and I was looking into hers. I had no idea what she was thinking,but for me this was the first time being in a situation like this. I had read about it, heard about it and even seen it a couple of times; but never been a part of it until today. She was breathing hard, so was I. I thought to myself...Is this really gonna happen??? I expected this moment since the time she moved in next door,but didn’t expect it to happen this soon. Should I just stay like this or move away? The latter was hardly an option.

There I was standing helplessly with two grocery bags in both my hands with my neighbor’s dog sniffing all over me. And this lady nonchalantly walks towards me,and says with a smile…don’t worry she wont bite. Yea right!!What the fuck should I do incase she does..BITCH. I almost blurted it out, but abreast of the compromising position I was in, I stayed quiet. And the bitch was not intended to be for the owner, but for the actual one.

All you dog owners, if you are listening, LEASH YOUR DOGS. Contrary to what you may think, they actually bite. They have been designed to bite…then why wont they? They don't have those razor-sharp teeth just for nothing. I really have nothing against dogs(only if I am at a safe distance away). In fact I love them. I think about them many a times in my life. Every time a professor gives my assignment/exam marks, I go "Damn..son of a bitch". Every time my boss orders me to complete the work within the next two hours,I go "Saala kutta". Whenever I see a female driver driving in the horrendous way typical to the female species, I go "Bitch!!". This is not all…whenever I do a self-appraisal of my life, I go "Ya right! It’s a dog’s life".

And ofcourse, we have a certain mr.pqR obsessed with dogs. Every example of his has the dogs Fido and Fifi who have tags, are given bones and stay in doghouses colored red,green and yellow. (If by any chance that person is reading this, I am screwed :P)

Going back to my intimate moments with her (her name was Vicky,just incase you are curious), this was the first among many. However, none of those moments felt the same way as this. Maybe because I knew later, that she does not bite :)

Kaka Transfer Saga

Over the past few days, the news in the January transfer market in the BPL was about Kaka's possible move from San Siero to Manchester City. The offer was an absurd 120 million Euros. I do not even know how many zeroes that would contain, but all I know is that its a lot n lot of money.

At the end of it all, I am very happy that Kaka decided to stay at AC Milan. Money can bring you everything except loyalty. Here is a man committed to stay loyal to his club, his fans and supporters, and most importantly, to himself. It would be obvious to believe that he would have been tempted to move to Manchester City with this amount of money. I have always been a huge fan of Kaka the player. However, his decision has made me a fan of Kaka the person.

However, Milan should not escape criticism though. They have been tempted by the devil and, like Adam, they could not resist the juicy-looking apple. Its true that the money from the deal would have been used to get 3-4 excellent players to AC Milan and making the team stronger than before. However, the second symbol of Milan, after Paolo Maldini, was to be sacrificed for a pot of dirty money. So much for ethics! Had this deal gone through, it would have truly been the end of the beautiful game and the start of a dirty commercial market.

I feel there are many reasons why Kaka decided against joining Manchester City.Why on earth would a world-class player leave a huge club like AC Milan, who have been one of the top teams in Europe consistently for the past so many years, for a team languishing just 2 points above the relegation zone in the premiership? Also, if this deal would have gone through, the tag of "I belong to money" would have been on his shoulders for the rest of his lifetime. Milan fans have a special place for him in their hearts. More than any of this, there was one main reason why Kaka wanted to stay at Milan - his heart said so.

As far as Manchester City and its bloated rich sheikhs are concerned, it is a slap across their face. Do they really think that money will bring them trophies? The greed of money created one devil named Chelsea and its band of gloryhunters, we do not want another one. To win trophies, one needs dedication, commitment, discipline and desire. Not 120 million Euros!
