DD: Ahem
C: Yeah?

  6. @Dhanya, hehe yeah it was!! 😀

    @MRose, LOL that is a good one! I will add it to my PJs to crack to look good. Hmm realised I dont have any others in the list!

    @usha, heheh. My bro had this habit too of quoting Mallu proverbs. At one point he was so obsessed he carried a list in his pocket and read out the first one he saw (of course at an entirely different context). His favourite was one about patha pedichu panthalathu poyappol.

    @Deepak, vaanda! Grr I am not that dumb!! Hmph!

    @Egghead, err entammo?
