Sting in the Tag?

Some days you are too busy and preoccupied to sit at leisure and write something for your blog. Then a tag comes along. You want to take it along immediately but the forces of work and pressure makes you procrastinate.

This tag by Rita made me wonder that whether this is a sting operation perpetrated by my aunts who are desperate in seeing me 'settled' (in Indian parlance this implies married with kids). They have tried all the tricks in the book to know of my preference so that they could shortlist some prospective brides for me. But thankfully their unrelenting efforts have only met with with various degrees of failure. Sting or no sting the unwritten rules of the blogosphere requires me to take this along. Here I am.

The rules:

1. The tagged victim has to come up with 8 different points of their perfect lover.
2. Need to mention the sex of the target.
3. Tag 8 victims to join this game and leave a comment on their comments saying they’ve been tagged.
4. If tagged the 2nd time, there’s no need to post again.

It might be difficult to find someone with the following qualities that I seek, but in case you do find someone who fits the bill please do let my aunts know. They will shower you with blessings to counter the curses that I heap upon you.

Target: Female

My perfect lover should:

1. Have eyes that I can gaze into for hours
2. Have an understanding of my eccentricities
3. Possess a sharp memory to balance my absentmindedness
4. Be a good cook
5. Be a cleanliness freak
6. Be talkative to break the silence that usually envelops my abode
7. Have the X appeal
8. Be good at her 'job'

The victims:

1. Atul
2. Anthony
3. Varsha
4. Avik
5. Shivangi
6. Dwaipayan
7. Shyam
8. Rohit

Thanks for tagging me. But you already have covered all those 'x' and non 'x' factors I am looking for in my dream-girl.

It's an achieveable list! All the best! I'm not into matchmaking so I'm not contacting your aunts! :)

Shivangi said...

Kusum Rohra said...

The single quote on the word job makes me *smirk* :) Achivable list.

Atul Sabnis said...

hmm..tagged twice. Am still wondering if I qualify. Is this tag only if you are "looking" for the perfect lover?

Rita said...

Hey I agree with AFJ that it is an achievable list. But I too want to know what the job you are referring to, is. ;)

Rohit Talwar said...

'Job'...! Hmmm.. Right on target my friend.

Be talkative to break the silence that usually envelops my abode
Happy to know,some men do exist; who would actually enjoy their women being talkative.

Be a cleanliness freak.
Really?

Be good at her 'job'
Wouldn't that depend on how good the 'job' was?

Demi Goddezz said...

hmm..nice nice...:))

Abaniko said...

Talking about "jobs", there's another "job" word in my latest post. It's a meme and you're tagged. Bwahaha!
