By the Water Cooler !!

15 Oct

Parul from Brining up Adi and now renamed as Radio Parul is all set to launch her second book ” By the water cooler” . If you read her first book”Bringing up Vasu” you would surely know what a laughter riot she created in her first attempt and I am eagerly looking forward to her second book now.

There is exciting contest going on her blog where you need to write anecdote from your office. Here are the rules

  • You need to write a post telling a story or an anecdote based in an office. It could be about you, your spouse, kids, neighbour, whoever – it just needs to be based in an office. It can be funny, serious, somewhere in between, but it needs to be based in an office. It can feature a single protagonist or multiple characters, but it…yes, I know, you got it. 
  • You need to link to this post
  • You need to put By The Water Cooler in the title of your post
  • You need to leave me a link to your post in the comments section
  • If you don’t have a blog, leave me your entry in the comments section and it will be counted

IF your entry is selected then you will get autographed copy of this book 🙂

So here is my entry for contest

 When I did my grad..mobiles were not so common so I am not in much touch with my college pals…Its must later I foudn them again on Orkut/FB. For me office is always a place which I can say “Home away from home”..I have such wonderful frens there that I never miss my home in early days when I was in south India (hyd)..and later when I came back to Delhi , found new frens in team members and other ppl on floor. i remember when I spent hours searching for saree to wear in office on ethnic wear day, It was same feeling which I got in college on any occasion.

I m working in same company from last 4.5yrs so you can imagine my attachment to my office. Its like I grow in this office. I got engage, married and later have baby too…and there is so much similarity in my 4best frens at office..We all got married in same yr..have baby also in same  yr..and now enjoy discussion each and every thing abt our babies 🙂 ..when I got engaged.I once said to my frens that ” why always women have to sacrifice..why not man leave their  house and come and stay with woman’s family” ……Its been 3yrs into marriage and still my frens tease me with word sacrifice 😆 lol:

I go to office once in week/10days…..and its like going for picnic for me..I enjoy dressing up for office, meeting frens, getting all gossip of  last 10days….short coffee brks, pizza parties and evening walks in office lawn 🙂

    Good to hear that you are having lots of fun at office. Right now, my office thing is seriously boring with boring people around. I think I should do something to make it fun :).
