We are introducing a new column in BVT from tomorrow. It’s called The List. Basically, a top-ten every day of something or the other. (Why we have chosen the top-10 honeymoon spots for the first one, is not for us to ask).
Anyway, Harshitha Hegde who brings out the immensely popular Page Four People, called to ask what we should call the new column. Should it be the very mundane sounding Top Ten? Or could we make it Popular Ten?
But it wasn’t easy for Harshitha to make the call and ask the question.
The moment Ms Hegde’s number showed up on the cell, yours truly—all groggy eyed after a Sunday morning beer with some superb ‘koda bale’—mimicked a voice that said, “This is an automated response from the voice mail box of so-and-so. Please press ‘0’ to proceed.”
And lovely Ms Hegde pressed 0 and proceeded immortalise herself on “We Are The Best”.
No wonder somebody’s wearing a tee-shirt today which shouts “If I mature any more, I will die”. Yes.
