Antics of the MEN species

After lunch, I along with atleast another 15 are waiting at the lobby on the ground floor for the elevator. A pretty face walks in wearing a Jeans, kurti and a shawl wrapped around her neck. Needless to say she has everyones attention. Other than just 3 of us, the remaining is this interesting species called MEN or GUYS. Every head turns her way every second under the pretext of looking for someone in the crowd, or carefully checking the security(is he bin laden) or checking on their shoes and then stealing a glance her way or appreciating the architecture of the otherwise opaque glass seperator at the rear end or just plain exercising their head in rounds, as if that is their daily routine.
Now there is this guy who walks in and seemed to have known her and started talking to her. Now all eyes are fixed on this guy with an unique expression on every face, if to be read would be the likes of, who the hell is he, how does he know her, is he her boyfriend, Will he ?? and the kind of things the male species are capable of thinking. The elevator arrives and opens. While these 2 are engaged in their talks, the lift is full with the 3 of us plus the hopeful hearts. Now suddenly just as the doors of the elevator are closing, the girl turns towards us and exclaims "oh!!!". Suddenly one of these species hits the open button and the rest of the species squeeze around to make enough space for the pretty face. But thankfully(thankful because I am already on my toes), pretty face smiles and nods her head in the negative. The elevator closes and the losers look at the guy who hit the 'Open' with the expression "What a looser".

We guys aren't after Jolie or Preity(unlike you people who are after Pitt and Sharukh as you yourself have just now accepted).Even the most ordinary of faces is enough to warm our hearts for a while!

Oh come on now, have mercy on our sex-starved-species!
look at it this way, if the guys dont look at the girl, then all the work she has put in on her make-up, dress & everything is all for nothing... so actually we are serving purpose.

dharmabum said...

isn't it natural for males to be attracted towards the females & vice versa?
i don't mean it to a point when one is staring so hard and intent as to make the other person feel uncomfortable, but whats wrong in stealing a glance or two anyways?
spare us, lady :)

Articles with a gender undertone always seem to elicit more interest.
Hmmm..
