A recent conversation

Has this happened with you where you could never predict something like that to come up in a conversation? Like some stuff which probably is spoken only between very close friends and next thing you know, someone you hardly know asks you the same without even batting an eyelid? Yes, thats exactly what happened to me the other day. And to top it all, that person was one of my best friend's niece which technically makes me her Aunt as well though she is a IIIrd year College kid!!!

Anyway here is a snippet of the conversation:
Niece: The last time I met you with my Aunt you guys were talking about some weird boy friend of yours. (Note: This meeting was like 2 yrs ago)
Me (Smiling) : Yup, the weird one is history now.
Niece: So did you date anyone after that?
Me: Yup, someone who eventually broke my heart and I have been happily single for more than a year. (With a satisfied smile)
Niece (With a look of awe): Wow. And sex?!
Me (With jaws dropped): What about sex?
Niece: So how do you manage without it?
Me (I was about to pass out with the shock): It has never been an option!
Looking back I can only have a good laugh now.

Oh well, life doesn't seem to stop with her surprises!

P.S: Disregard my second comment because by third year in college I knew that bees story was diversionary tactic used by our

@ Ricky: I'm sure ur naivety is just an act to look cute!!! :-P

@ Lalit: Would the same quote apply to men as well? **Wondering**

@ Ektaran: Ricky, as I said earlier is acting! :-D

I don't know wat it is, but people don't seem to see that invisible line demarcating private spaces! Another question I'm often asked,"Do u live alone or in a PG?" My reaction,"Fuck Off!"

And regarding the post... let's take this as an example of teens being over curious about all things sexual.(see what hiding things in society can do to people?)
