I am a fool!!

Know the game ‘Christmas Angel’?

All the names of your friends are written in chits, you’ve to pick up one and send gifts or friendship notes secretly to that person on the chit. Then on Christmas night that person tries to guess his secret admirer, who showered gifts on him like an angel. If he guesses the wrong name, you get an expensive gift from him and if he is right you lose the gift.

Fun isn’t it?

7 yrs ago, I was in 8th class when we girls played this game and I picked up Akshara’s name. For a week I secretly dropped chocolate bars and all other small fancy gift items in her bag while she was away.I too was getting gifts from the person who picked up my name. I had no clue who my angel was.

During class break one day, I successfully placed a greeting card in Akshara's desk without her knowledge. Later she looked at the card and…

She: Here goes my secret angel again. Do you by the way have any of the faintest ideas who she is Aparna?

Me (trying to look as innocent as possible): Nopes. What did she give you anyway?

She: An archies card…(reading the message in the card) Aw! its sweet except for one thing.

Me(curiously): Well, what’s that?

She: (She read out from the card):‘from your secret admirer, class VII B’. She wrote VII B instead of VIII B. She must have got confused between VII and VIII.

Me: (as an unconscious and instant reaction):Oops! Aisa kya?I wrote by mistake!
And, so that is how folks, I let the cat out of the bag.


I had to give Akshara a cute plaster of paris showpiece of 2 friends hugging each other in the christmas party...damn expensive one! ...costed all my hard-earned pocket money :(

My secret admirer was Dwithi.I couldn't guess that(obviously!..with me what else can you expect!).I lost my gift(sigh!)
