Vijesh said...

@Abirami
My friend who decided to let her life go with the Indian ocean, since she was depressed of hearing grand ma stories from her friend. I pulled her and saved her from Indian ocean, but not sure about the grandma :P

Ramana KV said...

Turns thirty by itself is a scary thought and this long list makes it worse.. :)

Cool.. You got many in bold.. I sure would like to make no.13 bolder and darker.

Vijesh said...

@Ramana,
yup still a long way. Ah! No.13 It always sounds bad omen. :) But yeah will do it again may be not too often.

Abirami R said...

Ahhh.Talk about exaggeration.We were just sort of figuring our way out.That's all.And yeah,the grandma did it on her own.

Though she had to bribe the indian ocean with her glasses :D

Vijesh said...

Oh! The grandma escaped, We need to plot the plan properly the next time. :)

Is there a marking scheme, as in how usually it is
if u score bet 120-150, u have had an adventurous life. if u score bet 90-120, u have enjoyed ur life to an extent. if u score bet 60-90, u still have a long way to go. If u score below 60, u better look back at what s**t u have been in :)
I generally dont take up any tests kind if it doesnt have any scores :) :)
