You wear a ring given to you by someone very dear -- father, grandfather, girlfriend, etc. It brings you good luck and all that. Then one day you lose the ring. How would you feel?
Seven years later. The person who gave you the ring is no more, but one afternoon, you find the ring. It was hidden in one of the pouches of your suitcase. How would you feel?
You take the ring to the jeweller and ask him to polish it. The evening you go to collect it, the jeweller falls at your feet. "Sir, the ring got stolen!" How would you feel?
Life goes on, meanwhile. The same old whisky, Pancham, books and sex. Talking of sex reminds me: the other day I was chatting with a friend, a female. Except for food, almost all our interests match. But I did not know that sex was a common interest too, till the conversation that afternoon suddenly twisted towards it while we were discussing Casino Royale, the new Bond movie. That reminds me: if you haven't seen Casino Royale yet, go see it.
I am not much into new movies, that too English movies, for the simple reason that I don't follow the accent most of the time. I piece together the plot mostly through the body language. But for some movies I make an exception. Jhankar Beats and Mathew McConnaughey-starrer Sahara I have seen a couple of times in the theatre and subsequently bought their videos. And I am going to watch Casino Royale again and buy the DVD whenever it comes out. The stunts, especially in the first half, are breathtaking: it looks hair-raisingly real.
So back to the conversation I was having with this friend. No paraphrasing, no gist, no inferences -- I am just going to Ctrl C + Ctrl V (I am taking off her name though):
She: hey, how's your throat ya, havent asked you in ages
Me: throat is a lot better

Me: tantric sex cud be without sexual contact, when two people sit in front on each other
She: and do what? compose sonnets on each others beauty?
Me: have stimulation and orgasm by the sight
She: penetration is the be-all and end-all of all existence
Me: no, sex is everything but penetration... penetration is by the way
She: not for me
Me: u dont realise it, but is
She: but it HAS to end with it
She: arrey for me it does
Me: the most important part is the moments/minutes after the penetration, followed by the post-coital smoke
She: penetration is the only climax. Period.
Period. December is coming.
