Tantanoo’s language lessons: #319

Today’s lesson is an introduction to couple words. Couple words are two words that indicate the same thing. Their origin can be traced back to the popular dialogue in the 80s – ‘Aur Kaam Kaaj Kaisa Chal Raha Hai?’

Couple words act as great conversation fillers and are beautifully cringeworthy.


Football Shootball Haye Rabba

Shaadi Vaadi

Paise Shaise

and the epic combo, Dil Vil Pyar Vyar.

However, one needs to be really careful while using them in a conversation. You see, I was talking to this lady today and after the usual ‘aakhir uski life meri life se boring kaise’ bits, we reached a point in conversation where you had to use a conversation filler like ‘Aur batao’. I decided to go with a couple-word.

So I asked her: “Aur saving-shaving ho rahi hai aaj kal?”

I think I’ll never find out the answer to that question.


Tatkal, Rihanna and other irrelevant things

Well, this blog and its author have been missing in action lately. The author has also been missing action but that’s for another day. The fact is that the author has been really busy doing important things like running late for office, booking tatkal tickets by the dozen and deleting messages from HDFC Bank offering a personal loan thrice every hour on every phone in the author’s house. The author has also been sleeping like Sleeping Beauty on Benadryl.

The last post on this blog was on the second day of April, a day before the author crossed an important milestone in his life. He breached the Brahmacharya barrier. But right after that, the author was caught in a space-time-dilation-thingy that has slowed the author down to Keanu Reeves level. The author now spends his time watching Junior Masterchef and Castle reruns and eating shrikhand from a can. He took a reading challenge earlier this year that is becoming more challenging with each passing moment.

As a consequence of his inaction, this blog’s viewership has plunged more than the rupee or Rihanna’s neckline. The ICL has more viewers than this blog. Even those looking for Mamta Kulkarni’s body parts have deserted it.

The author realizes that drastic measures need to be taken to fix these issues.

Lara Dutta may be replaced with someone else(who knows).

More blog posts must survive the drafts folder.

Moar naked pikchurs.


But before that, MASTERCHEF 4 BAYBEH!


(P.S.: Tantanoo.com is now available again at work. Apparently, Websense has had a change of heart and has realized that this isn’t an erotic stories blog. The author’s next mission is to get this blog blocked under ‘Tasteless’
