Gobbledygook

I don’t speak the same language as the rest of the world.
I was asked to do something at work and having no idea how to go about it, I said, “I haven’t the faintest clue about it.” My thought was, “I don’t know, so could you tell me how and what is to be done?”
It was, however interpreted as a cop-out plea and someone said, “No one has any idea the first time.”
While that holds true for most circumstances {up to and including our first fumbling sexual encounters), me professing my ignorance ought to make the other person help me out, not immediately assume I’m shirking.
Next time, I’ll readily accept such work and fuck it up big time and when someone asks why, I’ll tell them that’s the only way I know how to do it.

About hbhatnagar

I need to fill this up with much better content than I had populated it with earlier. Why I write a blog maybe? I started blogging in 2009 or thereabouts. I was a newly turned atheist and wanted to converse with others of the same persuasion. We're not exactly a big population group in India! It didn't go very well and I sort of lost interest, posting a few things now and then. I got a lot more regular over the last few months and have been posting almost daily since February '15. There were many reasons why I gradually became more regular in posting, but one way or the other, here I am! So this blog has taken shape, being at different points in time my showcase, my comedy club, my art gallery, my book club, my therapist, my close friend, my innermost self....but always my little corner of the world. You are all welcome to visit and I hope you stay awhile! A few points about me because I don't want to lead anyone on(and trust me this does become an issue more often than I'd care to admit). I'm Indian, the brown-skinned variety; if race, ethnicity or skin colour is an issue, you don't have to get to know me any more than what you see on my blog. I'm 40, so if age is an issue, please be informed accordingly. I was a doctor, an ophthalmic surgeon for 10 years before I quit practice.

  2. You could always get David Icke to come and do a talk to cover the live entertainment aspect. He has been know to go on for about 12 hours without referring to any notes… That’ll teach them…
    In summary just so you don’t have to sit through the talk David believes that a secret group of reptilian humanoids called the Babylonian Brotherhood controls humanity. This group includes George W. Bush, Queen Elizabeth II, Kris Kristofferson and wait for it Boxcar Willie. I never trusted that Boxcar Willie… who is Boxcar Willie? You can ask David for me when you see him. Much appreciated.

    Have fun…

  4. They trust you because you’re an MD. They trust you because you have skills they cannot even begin to wrap their minds around. You can do this. Some things you take for granted about yourself. If it goes off smoothly, you can cherry pick future projects and generally do whatever you want.
