Some IT humor!

Last evening, Sharmila mentioned that she needed to pick up something from Publix. We decided to stroll up to Alpharetta downtown, grab a drink by the street, pick up the stuff from Publix and then walk back. All these are within 5 minutes of us.

We had to hop around a little to find a bar that was relatively empty. Saturday evenings can be very popular in downtown Alpharetta. In the end, we landed up grabbing two drinks from South Main Kitchen and sat on their plush sofas outside.

The young lady who served us was Mackenzie (Mckinsey?). I talked to her for some time while at the bar as she made our drinks.

It is only after coming home and putting away the receipts of the day in the drawer that I noticed the cool IT humor.

For Server, it says “Down” !!

Summer is coming…

That can mean only one thing… time to start collecting new funny T-shirts. (You can see last season’s here).

This one says “Tequila might not be the answer, but it is worth a shot” 🙂

Got this as a gift from my friends behind the bar at Senor Patron.

Good grief! My doppelganger!!

Somewhat unexpectedly, I got a Whatsapp message from my good friend Swati Jamwal asking me if I was in Pune having breakfast at a hotel. That was while I was sleeping in Atlanta. I saw the message when I woke up the next day and let her know that I was not. But that I will be in India in a couple of weeks. Curious, I enquired why she was asking.

She sent me this picture and asked me if this was my twin!

Man! I myself was fooled. My first reaction was that she was playing a prank on me with some old picture of mine!!

Later, Sharmila and Nikita pointed out some very subtle differences in the lips and nose. But boy, I was totally fooled!!!

My Pune friends, if you ever see “me” in Pune, please collect “my” contacts and send it to me. I will make it a point to take a picture of us together!!

That is wicked smart!

I needed to take a Zoom call from Starbucks at 1PM. Ten minutes before that, I pulled my car up next to a van in the parking lot. Had a loud laugh reading the wicked smart tagline on the side of the van.

This is an elevator company (I assume they service them and is not a manufacturer) called Genesis. Their tagline? “Taking you to the next level”!

Very funny! Made my day!!

New Year Resolution #1 – Check!

Lost 10 pounds quickly during the few days of Covid. Which is fairly exceptional for me. Most of the last 15 years, I have stayed within a narrow band of a few pounds – even that variation coming mostly from water weight (salt consumption the previous day or not drinking enough water after long runs).

On the brighter side, I think I am going to consider myself having overachieved my New Year Resolution! And now that I can check that box off, I am going to totally take it easy for the rest of the year 🙂 In fact my goal now is to put so much weight on that next year it will take me much more than one week to meet my annual goal 🙂

This is why I do not like going to grocery stores

The place is filled with illogical things. Plus I have this penchant for spotting everything under the sky other than the one thing I went there for.

All I needed was some juice. I kept spinning around the place looking intently, but unsuccessfully, for it. After a tip from a fellow shopper that there are two different locations for fruit juices (one for refrigerated and the other not so), I finally drifted in the right direction.

Except that I stopped cold on my way and strode back a few steps to confirm that I saw what I thought I saw. Now, you can see for yourself.

You cannot put Rogaine under “Shaving Needs”. Rogaine does not participate in any part of the shaving process. In fact, it does quite the opposite of the general concept of shaving. Which customer seeking Rogaine makes a beeline for the “Shaving Needs” section?

For a fleeting moment, it occurred to me that I should mention it to the girl at the check out counter. Then, thought the better of it since the lady who had given me the tip was standing right behind me in the queue at the counter. I did not want her to publicly point out that I did not where the juice was either!!

And that is how I survived this morning’s grocery shopping.
