Be-car ki baatein

So one of my bestest friends just booked his first car and emailed Viv and me to tell us about it.

Ever since I read his email, I have been laughing non-stop. I swear I have never laughed so much at a joke that was on me.

This is how the email went:

"Btw, we just booked the car… our first car! :)

Viv, it’s a Volvo S40, 170bhp, leather interior, power seat with settings memory, power telescopic steering, Sports chassis with front & back spoilers, 6 airbags, 17” alloy wheels.

Sayesha, it’s a dark grey car."

After exploding into multiple bouts of helpless laughter, I remembered the reaction appropriate for an occasion like this. On behalf of the oft-stereotyped automobilically-challenged womankind of the world, I regained my composure and dignity, and for the record, in as offended a tone as I possibly could, went, "Sheesh! Double sheesh!"

Viv then proceeded to ask him technical questions about the car while I fumed in indignation. As if I had no further questions! Hmmmph!

Of course I had questions too!

One in particular.

Of all frickin’ colours, why grey??? :/
