Blast from the past...

This chat, facebook etc. is so embarrasing at times.

Has it ever happened to you that someone from a very long time ago - primary school-mate,old colony cricket buddy, unknown hot junior chick who had a massive crush on you, kid taking the school bus from the same bus stop or the part time spinner in galli cricket who always bowled you - have added you on facebook or orkut or something? (ok, maybe the hot junior chick is a bit of an exaggeration) and then buzz you some fine day with a remember me?

And if you dont, and you really really want to know who it is, you have to resort to innane questions. And its mutually embarrassing when both of you realise that while one person cherishes the memory of the other, the other has absolutely no clue and has not thought of / remembered the other in all possible reminiscences over all the intervening years. A few awkward lines and then one of the two ends the misery by logging out.

Its an understandable thing, but nevertheless very embarrasing...
