Of P.I.N.K Balls and Office Communicator Talks! ;)

To begin with, some very colorful news: We are soon going to see the usage of PINK Balls in Cricket. Yes, you read it right …P.I.N.K balls!! 😛 When the proposed day-n-night test matches kick-off, ICC (International Cricket Council) is going to propose the usage of Pink balls for the new format. Earlier when day-n-night ODI’s (50 over format) was introduced; white balls were used for the first time replacing the usual red cherry.

How do you explain to someone who needs an explanation to a one-liner answer? Picture this group chat on the office communicator:

Friend1: How to go to Citi Center Mall from my house in Nanganallur?
Friend2: Why do you want to go?
Me: Go to the Mount railway station; take a train to Chennai Beach and then a train again to Lighthouse. 2 mins walk from there. Fast n inexpensive!
Friend1: hmm hmm…any other way?
Friend3: Ping some guys on the OCS and see if they have plans to go that way. Ask them if they can drop you to the mall. Don’t forget to put the winking smiley! 😛
Friend2: Whom are you meeting there?
Friend4: Take a bus, 21G from Guindy. It directly goes to Citi Center.
Friend1: How to do that? Where to take the bus from?
Me: Ok, let me explain. Get out of your house, go to Mount station. I assume you know how to do that. Board a train to Guindy and get down when the station arrives. Come out of the station and cross the road. Don’t forget to look left and right while crossing the road, even though it’s a one way. Rules are rules, you see. On crossing the road, stand facing the station and wait for the bus, 21G to arrive. Hopefully you wouldn’t have to wait for long, but anyway do carry an umbrella to save yourself from the scorching heat. Once 21G arrives, board it with your left foot first and stare at a seated guy with your eyes enlarged, indicating that he’s occupying the ladies seat. Throw in a tantrum or two and make sure occupy that very seat. Then the bus door closes (if not, it’s ok…enjoy the fresh air)…it’s a 27 min ride…sight the few historic buildings n churches on the way, enjoy the ride. When Citi Center arrives, the door would open (assuming it was closed earlier)…get off board with your left foot first again…enter Citi Center mall with your right foot first…Everything will go perfect and you would have reached the mall as you would have expected. By the way, don’t forget to smile at the security for some good footage on the hidden CC TV, if any! 😛
Friend1: Sounds cool. I’ll ping and see if any of the guys will agree to drop me off.
Me: Sigh!
