Whats "Love"

Something intresting i came across..enjoy..

A group of 4 to 8 year-old Children was asked, "What does love mean?" The
answers they gave were broader and deeper than anyone could have imagined.

What is Love???*

--"Love is when you tell a guy you like his shirt, then he wears it
everyday" (Tina - age 7)

--"My mommy loves me more than anybody. You don't see anyone else
kissing me to sleep at night." (Clare - Age 5)

--"When someone loves you, the way they say your name is different. You
know that your name is safe in their mouth." (Billy - age 4)

--"When my grandmother got arthritis, she couldn't bend over and paint
her toenails anymore. So my grandfather does it for her all the time,
even when his hands got arthritis too.. That's love." (Rebecca - age 8 )

--"Love is when you go out to eat and give somebody most of your French
fries without making them give you any of theirs." (Chrissy - age 6 )

--"Love is what makes you smile when you're tired." (Terri - age 4 )

--"Love is when my mommy makes coffee for my daddy and she takes a sip
before giving it to him, to make sure the taste is OK." (Danny - age 7)

--"Love is like a little old woman and a little old man who are still
friends even after they know each other so well." (Tommy - age 6 )

--"During my piano recital, I was on a stage and scared. I looked at all
the people watching me and saw my daddy waving and smiling. He was the
only one doing that.. I wasn't scared anymore. That's love" (Cindy -age 8

--"Love is when mommy gives daddy the best piece of chicken." (Elaine -
age 5)

--"Love is when your puppy licks your face even after you left him alone
all day." (Mary Ann - age 4 )

Love.............is not only made for lovers....... its also for friends
who luv each other sometimes better than lover....

the BMC toilet story..

Venue: Worli BMC (Architectural) office.

Time: 1:15pm

Me and my clique. Both of us sitting at deputy architects table. Waiting for him to come back n give us our file and get our work done. It’s been three odd hours that e are in this office. We have submitted drawings for one project and today was the meeting. Meeting was done with and we are waiting for the approval. it’s a lunch time and I m hell hungry m cursing the officer in my mind with all the possible bad words I know. I waited for 10 more min and told Brijesh (my clique) that I will go and get freshen up a little. When I search for ladies toilet I came to know . in an BMC architectural office, there they have gents and ladies toilet on different floors. Amazing isn’t it. Me being on the second floor and second floor having just gents toilet. What an amazing design. I had to come to 1st floor. I entre the loo n open the tap Bhuussshh…!! All the water drained on my feet cos the wash basin had no pipe at its bottom, it was all open from bellow. Isn’t that a smart design u get to wash ur feet also when u are washing ur hands. Let’s move on.. The only ladies toilet for the whole building has only two W.C (great!!) . I slowly pushed the door to check if its clean enough. Thankfully it is! I entre inside n push the door. Before I could do anything the door is locked. And there is no latch no handle nothing inside, for me to hold on to and pull open the door. Woo!! I try I try pushing it kicking it.. Nothing works apart from one thing that I realize.. “Darshana ! u r stuck in a public toilet in an BMC building!!” I laugh I go on laughing with that for next 2 min. then I look around to see some way out, the window. I can remove the lowers and go out.. hello hello!! Woman u are on 1st floor u can’t jump down. So what’s the next option?? Thankfully had my cell with me..I call up Brijesh. “hello Brijesh , I m stuck in the toilet..” Brijesh: “which toilet?” me: “what nonsense off course ladies” (wrong time wrong question) Brijesh: “what do I do now” .me : “ u mind coming and opening the door” ok ok..after 3 more min he came and opened the door..till then I m laughing .. and I laugh for some more time .. by the time I reached the table everyone on the floor seem to know I was stuck. I laugh I laugh some more.. I come back to my office. And told this to people and we all laughed.. and we discussed all possibilities of how it would have been if I didn’t have my cell.. or I was alone there..??..so whole lot of fun..

But learnt a lesson today..Always check the door of any public toilet.. especially when its an government building :P

Take care.
