Here are some of the mysteries of 2007 that I hope would make sense to me soon:
1) How is “it” going?: What is “it”? My car, my life, or my laptop? Nobody tells what one means by “it”, and nobody asks. Imagine if someone asks ‘how is it going’ and I say ‘what are you referring to’.. In such situations, acting know-all is better than being curious George. I do not even want to demystify the greeting “How is it hanging”. Let us just stick to plain old “how are you doing”, shall we?
2) “You gotta do what you gotta do”: I had to say this because I had to say this (!). Recursive recursion? This is worse than double negations.
3) Why does maturity follow a bell curve wrt age? Around 55, the insanity gene kicks in: a couple of days back, an elderly gentleman was literally fighting with me for a parking spot (by snatching what was mine) at a temple on new year’s day. I just gave up.
