Between Mars and Venus

You know you're one of the guys when they call you to play badminton with them on a saturday morning.

You know you're not one of the guys when you agree to get up at 6.30 am on a saturday and catch the 7 am bus to go play badminton.

You know you're one of the guys when the guys straightaway ask you to play a game (with points!) instead of letting the shuttlecock shuttle between the players with the rather general aim of getting a good workout. (And they say girls like to 'play games'. Hmmph!)

You know you're not one of the guys when every time someone shouts out the score "1-love", you think of Blue, Shaan and Abhishek Bachchan.

You know you're one of the guys when they don't bother being nice to you by sending the shuttle right back to you but make you run around like crazy.

You know you're not one of the guys when all four of them royally kick your ass at every game.

You know you're one of the guys when one of them actually admits you're better than he was when he first started playing with the other three.

You know you're not one of the guys when the other three say, "Come on now, you're not that bad. You're actually pretty good!"

You know you're one of the guys when you actually play for most of the 2 hours that the court has been booked for.

You know you're not one of the guys when you're shocked at their suggestion of going to Burger King right after the two-hour workout.

You know you're one of the guys when you tell them over Burger King burgers that you think Fight Club is one of the most gripping and brilliantly crafted Hollywood movies ever, and they are utterly surprised that a girl should say that.

You know you're not one of the guys when you get home, take a shower and your hair takes half an hour to dry.

You know you're one of the guys when you don't think it's necessary to do stretches before you go to sleep after you've been playing badminton for two hours.

You know you're not one of the guys when you wake up the next morning with excruciating body ache, especially in your butt, thighs and calves, obviously caused by not doing stretches before going to sleep.

You know you're one of the guys when you commit to playing again whenever they play next, notwithstanding the body pain.

You know you're not one of the guys when you spend the whole of sunday wondering whether your aching legs will allow you to wear your high heels to work on Monday morning.

soleil said...

I've never felt like one of the guys before haha! I'm most definitely not one of the guys cos I almost always stretch before going to sleep even if I didn't do any rigorous exercises that day. I'm terribly afraid of body aches :p

Cheeku said...

sounds so familiar:

i know i am one of the guys when they invite me to their nite-outs... i know i am not one of the guys when all they talk about is bikes, cars, F1, action flicks and dev languages!

i know i am one of the guys when i join them for go karting... i know i am not one of the guys when they keep me out of their races!!!

whatever said and done, venus shines brighter in the nite sky than mars...

;)

Accept it na, you're not one of the guys. And add to it, you don't even want to be.

#Kais,
I totally agree! The people who live a stone's throw away from the badminton court should TOTALLY invite the girl who lives an hour away for a nice home-cooked breakfast, what do you say? ;)

#Sakshi,
:P
