Writing a blog together is something me and my friend, Kate (you can check her blog here) have been planning for a long time. So, when we saw today’s daily prompt, we both decided that this was our chance to find out some choice secrets of each other and also write a post together. Me being A and her being K, here is how our conversation went:
A: So who goes first?
A: Ok – but let’s drink our Truth Serums first 😛
K: Okay. Let’s have our serums.
A: *gulp* Tastes like licorice.
K: But you over-think a lot, most of the times.
K: My chance – What’s the one thing about me, that just doesn’t make sense to you?
A: How despite being brought up in a Hindu family you got so influenced by Christianity. I have Christian friends who haven’t read the Bible as many times as you have!
A: What’s my most charming quality?
K: You are always supportive and encouraging.
K: If suppose, for any reason, we have a fight and don’t speak for a very long time, and meet after many months, how would you react?
A: Ominous question! But I usually try hanging on to friends for as long as I can. And you are a very close friend – there is no way I am letting you go. There is no way we wouldn’t have talked for months. I would have been calling you everyday, and bombing your whatsapp inbox with apology messages.
But say you moved to Antarctica and we really don’t talk for quite a long time, then I am probably just gonna hug you, and then bore you with all the intricate details of my life in the past months – all the guys I liked, all the parties I had been to, every single book I read, and all the sitcoms I watched.
A: What’s the one quality about me that annoys you the most?
K: Honestly, I haven’t found anything “annoying” as such. But I guess, when you form an opinion about something, it’s really hard to have to change it. I dunno about anecdotes, can’t think of any at the moment. This response just came to my tongue.
K: Sort of repeating a question that you asked, what’s my biggest asset, personality/quality/character wise?
A: The way you put things across. You are witty, without being arrogant. You know stuff and you correct people’s mistakes, but you aren’t patronizing or condescending. That’s very rare among our peers.
K: Oh my god! I didn’t even know I do that! I demand an anecdote immediately.
A: Hahahaha…uhm anecdote? Can’t recall…exams messing with my brain. My turn. one thing you wish I would start doing already?
K: Cool down and take good and adequate breaks from your busy and extra demanding schedules. You should randomly go on mini vacs every few weeks.
A: Hahahaha – let’s start with that Bordi vacation we keep planning 😛
K: Haha. That is a dream dream vacation plan 😛
What I meant was going solo.
A: And get accosted by strange men? I was walking down from the station today, and I swear I got stalked. TWICE!
K: Oh. Erm. Bad idea then.
K: What’s your deepest insecurity?
A: My friends finding me repulsive and hating me, and never talking to me again.
A: Turning the sword around – what’s your deepest insecurity?
K: Not being good enough. In my own eyes. I have expectations from myself. And while I don’t go around trying very hard, I do like it if people around me smile because of something I did. And when that doesn’t happen, I feel I have failed in some way.
I think another one of the side-effects of the truth serum is drowsiness, or maybe it’s just because it’s nearly midnight here. Anyway we both decided it’s time we gave the questions a rest, and sleep off the truth serum…before some of the darker secrets come out 😉
