Third wheel.

I happen to be sitting out on the terrace of the school cafeteria. Have you ever felt like a third wheel in life? Here's a scenario. I was having lunch with a pal. Okay not lunch,but a cup of coffee. Then one of her other pals joins us without invitation. She is light skinned,gorgeous and tries hard to hide her stammer. They haven't seen each other in a while. Then they start talking boys. I don't do boy talk. Why? It is always the same thing! He did this,so and so is hot,he hurt me,he asked me out,he cheated-and the yapping goes on and on! I love book talk. It is thrilling and challenging. Thinking of which,am reading 'Interpreter of maladies' by Jhumpa Lahiri. That is great! So they are talking of exes. They don't want to date now because they guys would be rebound. Rebound? Can you believe them? Am a third wheel. It feels good because I get to blog,and it has just hit me that a research topic could come out of this! They are now to the emotional bit-where they cry about their break ups.
