Public Displays Of Affection

No im not a prude.
Or would like to think so. Umm...I don’t really have strong opinions about public displays of affection. Coz it doesn’t really matter. So I have no issues when it comes to people being openly affectionate, kissing hugging that sorta thing im cool with. Err… when other people are doing it that is.

Agreed have averted my gaze on seeing cooing love birds at juhu chowpatty or at railway stations and bus stands. *urgh!!!*
Now imagine when u have a couple who cant seem to keep their hands off each other and they r sitting right on da front seat. And you have nothing else to amuse urself with but to watch them. (psst psst : id watch em even when I have stuff to do, I think its like the thing. People gawk at you when you are dressed differently n stuff?? No. don’t comment if they don’t to u)

That happened to us during our trip to Goa. Rohini, Purva and me...three hot babes ( no da point is not open for debate) went to Goa november last year. It was a major blast. Sun, sand, sum film festival and tones and tones of fish curry. Too bad we didn’t get to see any hunky studs there. But that’s besides the point.

Back to the affection part. The Volvo was late, it was scheduled for 9 in the night . And maybe it was the marriage season or something coz the Volvo was full o couples. We three and two more were the only people traveling without the significant other. So there was a lot of action
And there was this newly married couple (frm da way they were giggling) seated in front of us. Newly married how?? They couldn’t seem to keep their hands off each other. So how NEWLY?? Hehe coz they were giggling. *Display of superior logical sense by Ships*
Man it was oh so hilarious…

Zoom back to the couple in front. It was November and the Volvo was air conditioned…wasn’t that hot I suppose. But this couple obviously were very hot (no pun). They were making out under the blanket. And every two minutes the blanket would be thrown open…lol breath of fresh air im guessing.
Purva and me cudnt help giggling. And since we couldn’t giggle loudly, we ended up sniggering. Rohini on the other hand was half asleep. Keeping her outta what was blatant fun would be cheating our closest friend. We woke her up. Lol. God alone knows which world she was in, she instead of being amused was staring intently at the couple, maybe trying to make out (no pun again) what precisely was going on. That put purva n me in another fit of laughter.

Man was it difficult to keep it low. Both us and the couple in da front. And that wasn’t all. When the vehicle stopped for some refreshments…all this happening at two in the night, the lady grinned at us. WE...grinned right back.
Well that was like one really hilarious episode. Which just added a sparkling beginning to a memorable trip.

But then what made me think really, was when da visit to aurangabad happened. *oh I need to write Revelations II*
Classmates turned couple. Hehe. It was kinda…I dono I felt very weird in their company. It was like they were flaunting. The caresses and the hugs didn’t seem natural, more like staged. So alright we understand that it has been only two weeks since both of you admitted to each other the koochi cooing feelings you both have, but why do you need to do da cooing in front of us?? Or show how much you know each other.
“shipra, we have a relationship where we don’t believe in showing that we are a couple, infact we both try and maintain a distance consciously. U know him naa. So... *ehhh??*

“u kno ship, HE is such a nice guy... when we are talking on the phone late at nights, I suddenly fall asleep and he gets so wild. But he still calls me the next day.”
*ROTFLMAO*
all the while they r holding each others fingers or I don’t even know how to describe it…touching each others fingers wid jus one finger. Man...such are people in love.

Then there was this scene when we got down from the bus and saw da guy kissing the gurl’s neck. Lol! right in the middle of a buzy road. What was more amusing was that maybe they didn’t notice but our professors were on the other side waiting to cross the road.
Hehe
We didn’t wait to see what happened next. I admit I was too embarrassed to see if he was really kissing her neck or... I now, would love to imagine variations in the ending...aah missed opportunities!!
Everyone would whisper. Even those gurls who feign distaste or disinterest. And that led to an extensive and urgent single-gurls-meet. Where we bitched bout one and all...talked about how disgusted we are with such improper behaviour and that such people have no shame!!! :-P ;-) A friend even had her mouth agape. Name withheld for author’s safety.

A lot happened actually in da visit to aurangabad. Like there was this another couple who were making out in da train. Ohh yeah. Not that I saw it, *darn* but we all saw da hickey on da guy’s neck and God alone knows where else. Yes we talked about the love bite too in the sisterhood-convention *wink* And during the bus journeys the gurl would sit on the guy’s lap. Not due to lack of seats… Again the finger thing happening.

*amused*

In all this I was paying rapt attention…don’t ask me why…coz I don’t wanna lie.

    Hilarious! You seem to be seeing all the action!

    Classmates turning couple is pretty strange at times. All of a sudden everything has changed. And you have put your finger bang on it. It all seems staged. And that I guess is the strange part.

    Thanks for dropping by my blog and commenting. Look forward to seeing you around and revisiting your blog!

    i knowwwww!!! its sooo weird! i was at this party, and I saw this dumfuck type classmate making out with his girlfriend! I gagged!!!

    And this other time in a park near my house, at 9 AM!!! And then once at 10 pm...we did a cricket commentry style thing on it...

    But what pisses me off is that i was at this dada dadi park at breach candy, and me and a friend were smoking and this oldie stoppde us, which is cool. But then, after a while, when we were leaving, we saw this sign tht said no smoking, drinking, playing, animals, music, happiness in tht park. Of course, it was perfectly allowed to make out because there were these couples all over the place!!!!

    there sure has been a lot of lol-ing from U.. I guess this is what happens with girls around.. ppl don't care.. no im not being chauvinistic here.. I mean there was this same newly married couple on our trip to goa, the bugger didn't move his hand any further than his wife's thigh, and even for that most of us were sniggering at rest of us.. yeah.. U know.. EVEN with only that..

    that was funny. you have lots of guts to touch a topic as taboo as this one. the best place to see all the un-inhibited cuddling and kissing would be Singapore. Beats Indians hollow. We would feel ashamed ourself just watching the stuff they do :-). anyway, keep up the good work. i keep logging onto your blog whenever i am looking for some fun reading :-)...sudhir

  • At March 21, 2005 8:11 AM, Blogger Prashant said…

    of course I did... but u know how it is with women... they really dont let you stay mad at them for too long... always bring up some old grudge or guilt that they've been saving up for an occasion like that...

    hehehehe... Making out, well, a repressed society like ours needs to chill out and break these rigid norms....

    Its almost like these couples are insecure and have to display such overt affection like syndrome... almost like, look at me! :)

    Hey The topic was indeed fantastic and the writing is much better. BTW how in the world do you manage to reach in such situations.
    And WHY IN THE WORLD DID you go to GOA on BUS when there is the Beautiful Train Going around

    LOL - That was fun reading :-D

    There's PDA and then there's PDA - I can take some of it, but not too much. Hug, casually touch, loop arms around each other - but like pls stay easily distinguishable frm each other - couples out to prove they are "one" in public - I echo Aparna, get a room ppl!

    Had to once endure 5 hours of a couple kissing almost non-stop in a train in Germany. Since I was in a cubicle I couldn't look to my left, so had to either sleep or look out at the endless countryside till it started blurring, coz watching them was so EWWWWWWW!
