Being Silly!

Silliness is an underrated state of mind where everything seems rational to you, but for others its just “Oh my god! How can she be so dumb?”. Sometimes its silly not to be silly.

Like for example: You want something from your parents, you know if you sit and discuss with them either they will not agree or it will just take a looooooooooooooooooooooooot of time. So the best thing to do is be silly about it. Close your ears, and eyes and start screaming, “I want it. I want it. I WANT IT”. I’m sure you’ll get the desired result in a matter of minutes. Who will want to argue with a  stupid, silly, stubborn person? Will you?*

Another time this principle works is when you are trying to impress a guy. I have seen many girls who pretend to be so dumb. As an inexperienced cynic, I used to think guys are smarter than to fall for this childish trick, but guess what? They are not. They will lap up any stupid, “silly” girl they come across. After all, its easy to manipulate a dumb girl anyday, don’t you think so?*

Then there’s the time you have to fill a form or an application or whatever. You don’t wanna take the risk of filling it yourself and making a hundred mistakes in the process but you are too proud to ask for help. Tan ta dan! time to put on your silly mask. Go to your dad. ” Dad, does age mean your age or mine?”, “Dad, does address mean gmail address or yahoo address?”. Enough, these two questions will do the trick, if not pepper it with some more conjunctions and prepositions. He will snatch the paper and the rest will be history.*

You can repeat the same procedure with your team lead when he/she has assigned you a lot of work. Go to him and repeat similar questions like, “You mean I have to make a call on this, should I call or will they call? Shall I call in the morning or evening? Who will pay the ISD bill?” You will be met with wide eyed stares, but your work there is accomplished.*

Try these.

Oh but wait,
* means “All these work in your favour, IF and ONLY IF you are a girl”

P.S- I was inspired to write this post after I saw my 26 year old cousin get her job done just by being silly!

Now go try 🙂

There is a deep and cosmological connection between my birth, my parent's decision to name me what they did, my profession and my education. This brings me to the conclusion that fate is predetermined and like in Hindu mythology, is written by Brahma when someone is born. Example: My name is unique. I did my grads in Psychology. I then did my masters in HR (offshoot of following all the psychos). I then did the ultimate decision of joining an MNC in ............. beat it, BUSINESS DEVELOPMENT. So, I have the concept 'MAD' in my name, my education, my choice of career and all the milestone decisions of my life. Now, is it predetermined or what ? :-D
