part theory of relativity, part john lennon

The best kind of relative to have would be a gay uncle.

This is how I imagine it would be. He would be plump, with plump manicured hands and feet, great taste in food, music, movies and wine.

He would also have a nice apartment in Juhu, somewhere near Prithvi actually. Maybe even in the Janki Kutir lane. I’d live with him and we’d discuss men and movies while rustling up a chopped salad and blueberry cheesecake for dinner.

Of course we’d both be going to catch the last 9.30 play at Prithvi. Me with my set of friends, he with his. And yes, all his friends would be terribly bright, and witty and arty and bitchy!

There would also be days when we would just sit for hours in compatible silence, reading our respective books. His apartment would always be neat, and everything in it would be dark wood and chattai.

And of course he would be just the person you’d want to take shopping, discuss your boyfriend problems with, plan a dinner party with, or even take your boss troubles to.

In fact staying with gay uncle Gagan would be the most suitable arrangement till I fell in love and moved out or got married.

We’d miss each other terribly. Considering that I would have moved to Milan.

To paraphrase John Lennon:

You may say I’m a dreamer

But I’m not the only one

I hope someday

Every girl 

will have a gay uncle Gagan.

Wherever did you get that dream from? Well, I want all of it, the flat near Prithvi, and definitely the blueberry cheese cake.

Cant help but think of 'What Women Want', the scene when the blonde's convinced that Mel Gibson is Gay after the amazing sex they had and the way he totally understood her sentiments!
@Day dreamer:
Most guys think they can be good boyfriends. Amazingly, gays are supposed to understand men better (and love them!), I think gals can never make up their mind. Do they really want to be cared for or just want a company who's self absorbed like them (and concerned only about their own nails, hair, and what not) and know how to bitch about people around them.
@Agent green glass:
Frankly (and ironically too), all that a guy really, really wants is an aunt (though much younger than Uncle Gagan) who's a lesbian ;)

prasoon: the last bit on the comment...wicked! and the whole "I think gals can never make up their mind. Do they really want to be cared for or just want a company who's self absorbed like them (and concerned only about their own nails, hair, and what not) and know how to bitch about people around them" ... what an outdated stereotype dude. go out and meet some women.

Prasoon Joshi said...

Its not about d stereotype, its just how gals are!
You do love pink don't you? (your DP!).
Its not bad to love pink (or your nails or your hair or your gay uncle Gagan) just don't ask me to believe that you don't!

agent green glass said...

ya. of course i like my hair, my nails...ummm...pink is okay. i prefer green actually. but that doesn't been i'm self absorbed. or that's all i like. one sec, why am i explaining myself...damn!
