Hidden Messages in Water (Part 1)
Battling the urge to go home and curl up in a nice warm bed, Gurcharan and I managed to carry our behinds to Kings Uni late last evening to discuss the all too controversial science v religion topic.
Funnily enough, I’ve only just finished reading Dan Brown’s Angels and Demons, which revolves around exactly the same scenario, albeit all fiction.
At the station, we bumped into a lovely Penji (emphasis on the ‘lovely’ – you will soon find out why!) who was going to the same lecture, so I got chatting with her while Gurcharan went off to WH Smiths.
Bhenji: So what uni do you go to?
Preet (visibly flattered): Aww – I left uni couple of years ago!
Benji (gesturing to Gurcharan) : Oh Preet I think your mate’s looking for you
Preet (giggling): you mean my husband!
Benji (visibly bewildered): your husband??!! Goodness you both look like a couple of teenagers!
Preet (embarrassingly ecstatic and breaking into a bout of bhangra): Aww – bless you bless you bless you! The arduous ordeal of bathing this morning actually paid off!
After that convo I was beaming all night! However, im sure Penji was probably referring to my childish behaviour rather than my youthful splendour!
Anyway, must say the sign posting inside the uni was quite accurate, which was nice to see!
we made a special effort to get there on time – yours truly had to sacrifice a trip to the Millies Cookies kiosk :o( - only to find the hall completely devoid of human life!
“Goooochy dearest, are you sure it said 1800hrs?!!??”
Aha, right on cue, Sodhi Singh materialised out of nowhere! Slowly the whole lecture hall was packed (note ‘slowly’ is the operative word here!) Himmat did predict some bizarre PMT phenomenon, which later I got to find out, stood for Punjabi Mean Time!
