Girls, forever crazy girls

Some days back, I went shopping by myself and as expected, got super confused. This or that, I had no clue. I tried two dresses at least 4 times each and finally picked up one. When I got home, I suddenly felt the urge to change and get the other one. So next day, I went straight to the store again and as if my mind was waiting for me to get there, I was in two minds again. This time I thought, nothing doing, so I went shamelessly tapping aunties, girls and asking them to suggest which dress is better. Only when at least 4 people confirmed that pink one looked the best, I bought it! I thought for many days that I was the only moron capable of doing this but guess what, I am not alone. Over the last weekend, I went mall hopping again, this time thankfully with my parents and there I saw a girl coming towards us. She innocently looked at mommy and asked "Aunty, what do you think about this Kurti": I smiled and helped her buy the stuff.

If the above proves, that all (at least some) girls are confused shopaholics then this para will delve in the pervasive self obsession. I remember when I was very young, 3 years or so, I was short ( of course) and so couldn't reach up to the washbasin mirror or any other mirror in the house, I would go to the kitchen and see myself in a steel water filter we used to have. This was not it, when I was a teenager and out of house, I used to stop by at at the parked cars and look at myself in the side mirrors. My friend used to say, I am the only one who does such crazy stuff. But after so many years, I realize, I am not alone. Yesterday, while de boarding the metro, there was a college girl in front of me and an aunty behind me and all three of us, while waiting for the door to get opened, checked ourselves out, touched the hair and tried looking primmer. I felt great and bonded at the same time.
