So Viv calls me on my work phone and says, "Listen to this..."
The last he did this was in 2001, when I was doing my internship. And what had followed his "Listen to this..." was the song "I just called to say I love you..." (Don't laugh, we were young and foolish back then.)
So I was all geared up to listen to what he had to say this time (8 years later!) when I heard Rekha Bharadwaj whine, "Genda phool!"
"So?" He asked excitedly.
"What the...?!" was my response.
"Have you heard this song before?" He asked gleefully.
"Of course I have heard this song before, Viv. I have heard all songs before." I looked at my nails and coyly answered.
"Well, I just heard it for the first time!"
"Funny? It's the worst song on the planet. I hate it. It's a stupid stupid song."
(I really do hate the song. Not as much as 'Dil dance maare' but still, a lot.)
"Yeah, I know." I could hear him grin.
"So you just wanted to play this stupid song for me on the phone?"
"Hahahaha! And that's all you wanted to say?"
"So I'll get back to work now?"
