Who needs an Extra Tooth?!

So the drama started with a slight pain in my lower jaw, being at my ignorants best I ignored the nature's warning and went to work. So this time Mother Nature decided to give me little serious warning, so along with pain hence came fever and some more pain!! No sooner was I home than I realized that it was altogether a bad idea to stay at home and so rushed to the dentist.
Now Act 1 scene 2 began with the waiting at the dentist's. All around me I had small kids accompanied with their mums who would occasionally smile looking at me sympathetically. The kids on the other hand I believed looked at me and probably wondering, "See Momma, even the grown ups don't know how to brush their teeth!"
After A long wait I literally got tired of explaining everyone that, "No no, I don't have cavities, Its the Wisdom tooth that's bothering." (Yes I lied to them, I DO have cavities!) Finally it was my number, and there the doctor was, in full mood to make me feel like a 2 year old! Asking me questions that made me blushed, "How many times do you brush in a day?", "How do you brush?", "What toothpaste do you use?", and so on. I wanted to punch him hard in the face and tell him to stop making me feel so small and for heaven's sake treat me like a mature, decent, young 22 years old lady, who very well knew HOW TO BRUSH HER TEETH! After making me feel terribly small and giving me literally a bag full of medicine the doctor told me that all the pain and the fever was due to the 'Wisdom Tooth' to which I gave him a complete Blank look. He smiled and told me that Some (unlucky people I guess?!) people in their 20s get one or two extra tooth which is called the Wisdom Tooth, to which I couldn't control myself and asked him, "Why?", He looked at me with his dont-be-so-stupid-look! But my question was actually Why will I need one or two extra tooth in my mid twenty's when I managed for so long!! I mean why the sudden need of a pair of extra teeth, what special or extra will I start eating all of a sudden that I will need these teeth!! In the meanwhile I guess the doctor somehow learnt what's going in my mind and said, Oh you see this is just like how early men had Tails, it started to grow smaller and smaller and finally vanished and so are these Wisdom Teeth, Early men started eating all rough and raw food when they attained their mid twenties so this is the reason for this Wisdom tooth. I so much wanted to ask him as to why tail disappeared earlier and not this stupid tooth but I stayed mum realizing doctor's growing impatience.
With a bag full of medicines and a mind full of questions I rode back home, wondering if our great great great grand kids would finally get freedom from these Painful Wisdom teeth.

Why Indian Men stare!!

Today while reading some blogs I came across this very funny post!!

Every time I have an unwanted eye contact with a stranger at work or a mall or anywhere else, I realize that he was already staring and checking me out. While I am still trying hard to figure out when men love to stare, here are few of the top reasons that justify their cheesy gesture towards almost every woman they see.

1.    Men are born to stare. Most Indian men feel it’s their birth right to check out almost every possible woman they see around them – walking, standing or merely passing by.

2.    You have to have guts to digest this one. Some men feel women like to be stared at and that’s why the needful from their side. LOL.

3.    No wonder if some men say it’s a fun hobby for them to check out any and every girl. Ah, seems they really have nothing better to do in their life. LOSERS!

4.    For men, women are like commodities (read sex objects) that have to be scanned from top to bottom and from all possible angles. Even if they don’t dare to come near you, they ensure that they embarrass you to death just by their stares.

5.    The best is when road side Romeos stare at the most beautiful girl in the town… yeah, yeah, I understand, forbidden fruit is always more tempting.

6.    Apparently, men get a high by staring at women. Well, I guess it’s only to satiate their perpetually sex starved senses that they would give sleazy looks to women.

7.    For some men, checking out women is like a status symbol that they love to boast in front of friends. Whether the girl in question gives a damn about it or not, who cares.

8.    Giving affirmation to their manhood, some men feel it’s manly to check and stare at women. 

9.    At times, men would stare less at the woman but more at the guy she is hanging out with --- I assume these men only want to figure out why they do not have her as their arm-candy.

10.    Women are God’s most beautiful creation and some men do use this as an excuse to check women out. WOW!

11.    It seems men find it hard to come to terms with girly fashion and maybe that’s why they get this strong urge of continuously staring at women to understand what she’s wearing and WHY!

12.    Some sleazy men have the guts to say that they stare just to reciprocate to the woman’s gesture. Yeah, as if he is the only man alive on planet earth to be picked.

13.    Indian men have been programmed in such a way that they can’t help but stare at women. Upbringing, values, peer pressure or whatever.

14.    Men certainly don’t get enough of being with or around women at home (sister, mother or wife), which is why they can’t help but stare at every woman they come across.

15.    Let’s give some men a benefit of doubt, as they can genuinely be looking out for a prospective female partner so what better than staring can help.
