A quick tale 100

Confessions of a cook

Have you ever wondered what goes into your dosai? I wish you did. Because I see you waiting at the counter now, drumming your fingers impatiently for that ghee roast you have ordered. And I suddenly remember the fight I had with my wife this morning. I will not tell you what I am about to do next but tomorrow morning you will wake up complaining of stomach pain. And you will blame it on the water, which your wife has not been boiling enough before filling up the bottles. You will come back again for your afternoon fix and by then I will have patched up with my dearest. Tomorrow I will be extra nice to you. Today, enjoy your dosai, saar.

Ammani,

Congrats for the Century.
As for the QT 100, I always try to be as polite as possible with the coffee boy in my office. Don't know, what he may do with the coffee, behind the closed doors of the small cafeteria (if we could call it one)in our floor, if one treats him harshly !!!

"I will not tell you what I am about to do next" This makes it more scarier than if you had actually told what the chef did :-)

And that's the way to score a century! In style!

A 100 very much similar to a 100 that Tendulkar scores now a days, the difference being I enjoyed waiting for you to complete one than Tendulkar to complete his!!

I just recollected a dinner we had a few days back, where we had picked up a nasty fight with the captain... Wonder what he did..
