Stranger

Dude, do you have a lighter?

Ah...yeah...Take it…

Thanks, do you have a cigarette by the way...

Never in my life have I faced such a clever way of talking to a stranger...I have only two... no probs you can take one...

Thanks buddy...

By the way who are you?

Strange question to ask me really… I’m the same as you are…

Diplomatic answer…but I was expecting some specific answer!

You will get to know…

Get to know means? You really need some tuition to help you how to talk to strangers…

Haha… you have a good sense of humour… why are you in a hurry…we have so much of time left until our turn comes...so that’s what I meant to say you will get to know soon…

Oh I thought I don’t have to wait long here…

Hahaha… again I must admit you have a very good sense of humour

No I was serious, I thought I don’t have to wait long here…

Oh if that’s the case Sorry boss I take back my compliment…

My god, I will lose all my patience if I continue talking to you…

Cool boss, cool… these days it’s very hard to get an immediate appointment here, you have to wait.. There are lots of cases like us who are waiting since morning…

My god…

No…our god…haha…

………

The problem is this is the only place in this area where these things are looked after...… so cool…chat with me till your chance comes…

I prefer standing alone rather than talking to you… I’ll get mad…

Hahah…whether you said it seriously or for a joke… I compliment you are the most funniest guy I have ever met…

And I must confess you are the weirdest person I have ever met…and I don’t think I’m gonna meet anyone from now on…

Thanks for your compliment… one of the beautiful habit that one should have is to compliment others for the one they deserve… and you have that good habit….well keep it up… If you don’t mind can you lend me one more cigarette please...

What… one more…Are you a chain smoker?

Then what you thought brought me here…?

Oh I’m sorry… but its okay…. You can have one more... But don’t blame me if you get yourself complicated with this one extra…

Hahaa… oh dude… haha… you wont admit… but you have a very…

Okay okay.. I admit… I’m very humourous… so what else..?

So you drive very fast?

Well I usually do... but how do you know about my driving…?

Hahaha…you are…

Please stop…

Okay, sorry... I could guess from your bandages all around...

Oh simply extraordinary… I couldn’t judge you at all…You look stupid many times, but time and again you prove me wrong…

This time, I would take this on a serious note, bcoz if I take it as a joke, then I would lose one compliment…

Hahah.. nice meeting you..what’s your name?

I have many names, which one you want?

You are a tough customer to deal with, tell me those which you cherished…

Dad..that name brought me tears when I first heard it…. Darling… I like that name very much whenever my wife call me at night… but the name I got yesterday night is very unique, not heard that name before but everybody started calling by that name since yesterday.. and somehow.. I feel that would be my name from now on…

Oh is it... what’s that name..?

Oh come on…. You too would have that name by now…

Oh I got it… they call us now BODY isn’t it?

Sadly yes… all these people call us in so many names, but once we lose our life, they could only give us a very ordinary name “BODY”.... I’m sure we deserved something better joel…

Joel… how do you know my name…?

Hope you won’t get shocked…

No, no please…I am eager to know…. Do you know me..?

Whom do you think you overran when you were driving so fast day before yesterday?

Oh god…Don’t tell me…. But you said, you are here because of your chain smoking habit…

Well anyway I would be here soon because of that…. And just to satisfy you I told truth… I was actually busy lighting a cigar in the middle of the road thinking there isn’t much of traffic…But didn’t realize your super duper driving skills buddy…

Oh I’m really very sorry…. I didn’t really mean it… I... I...I ruined your life…

Cool buddy...Cool...We are all ruining others life in some way are the other, through our speech, through our acts, through our body language and what not… some time accidentally, sometime unknowingly, and many a times knowingly…

But how do you know these details about me while I didn’t know you before…

I’m in this form for last 36 hours; you have only spent 6 hours… so you are yet to realize our powers dude…

I must confess you are really a sweetest weirdest person I have ever met…

Ok, anyways… There isn’t much time to discuss near the cremation ground to find out if it’s a funny statement or something being told on a serious note… because your time has come buddy… they have started to burn you Joel.… oh I’m sorry.. Burn you “Mr. BODY”…
