Last Saturday was day full of fun and excitement . The day we spent together in Queensland . I wanna treasure every single moment of that wonderful time I had with my friends . So , here goes(it’s a bit long)…
Queensland – the amusement park .The amusement and fun was only because of my friends , they didn’t have many interesting rides actually . Each had their part to have made that day a memorable one .
Last friday night , the gentle breeze and the mild piano music couldn’t help me get a peaceful sleep . I was damn so excited , that there wasn’t even a single dot of sleepiness .We were finally going out . Last time when we planned , it was the project review that came crashing our plan . But fortunately this time , there was nothing to stop us . I somehow managed to get some sleep but woke up way too early and ofcourse I was dreaming about the time we would have there .
Each second moved like an hour , I just couldn’t bear it .Finally ,when it was the time , I raced out , to catch my bus to C.M.B.T .When I got down , I saw Danny walking towards me with that familiar smile of his ,there was someone else with him – “What !!! Is that Danny’s fatter version ??? and without mush !!!” – it was his brother dobbin , who looked almost the same .After some enquiry about the bus routes and the frequency , we got into a bus to poonamalle and were waiting for Miss.E.T (Sowmya) , who as always was late .
I unfortunately took a seat next to a old man , who was yelling at the driver who wasn’t there and started talking and complaining about the present government as if I were listening .It was kinda uncomfortable . I tried to look elsewhere , but it didn’t stop him. But , there came Danny 2.0 to my rescue , talking me into his world of gaming . First it was Assasing creed , then prince of persia , and suddenly persian prince was in NFS ..:) .HE sounded to be an expert in gaming . I slowly let myself into his fantasy and for a second , I was in venice , on top of a tower , locating my target , with the “Eagle eye vision ” .It was fun . By that time Sowmya arrived and the bus started and I was in still in venice . Thanks to Dobbin , the bus travel wasn’t boring .
Our wait in Ponnamalle , was even more funny .When sowmya wore her coolers and started running(in a hilarious way) almost to every bus that passed by ,to ask if it would take us to queensland and came back frowing that the conductor didn’t even respond , the three of us broke into a hysterical laughter , that the crowd got startled and moved away from her . (P.S : Danny knew which bus would take us there.)
Then we boarded the bus to queensland and when we got there , the gang from hostel was already thr and have made camps in groups , laughing , chatting and munching some snacks and a few were busy with their phones . We then mixed along.
Moments later , came MR.Snake and sruti , dressed and moved as if they were students of M.I.T or Harvard . The crowd might have taken them to be some NRI’s , but we knew that these were two demented souls trying desperately to get some attention :)
Then , the whole area was covered with flashes from the came camera , taking as many snaps as possible . The last to arrive was Aiswarya (nalla ponnu) and her slave Anand .Aravind started collecting the cash and our I.D’s to avail the student offer . It was then , we found the “Man of principles – Mr.Danny”. His 8th grade brother didn’t have an ID and when a guy volunteered to use his friend’s ID , Danny was like ..”I don’t like that ..that’s so not gonna happen” and as people started convincing him , he shouted.,”If anybody intends to do that , that’s it , we both will leave right away” and turned the other side giving us some time to decide . Those words darted through the air and everyone fell silent . But it soon shifted away and things came back to normal and we decided not to do anything against his wish ..After all , we were there to have fun .
When we went in there was a guy , costumed as a bull , bullying children and girls . When he came running , with those stuffed horns of his , pointing towards my friends , they shouted and rank back . There , I didn’t see girls who are 20+ , but a few 4th graders , who still believed that there is Boochandi (monster) , out there , who would eat them , if they didn’t sleep properly . lol :)
Weekend had brought too much crowd . We started running around to find a ride that didn’t have a huge queue .
Mr.Principle – Danny started walking sideways as if his legs were wobbly and sat down in a bench and never came for any other ride . One simple ride , was enough to make tis 85+ Kg man , nod a NO to all other rides . He was then left as the security for our bags .
Few hours passed , a few more rides , everybody shouting and laughing their guts out and soon all started walking like zombies , completely drained of all the energy and were looking for a restaurant to recharge them . I took the tokens for lunch and the service there was too slow . There were only 2 of’em and they had to attend a huge mob .I stood there patiently ,and Kishore took my stand .We both were standing there for minutes .
Miss.Dimple , waiting desperately for lunch , lost her cool and lurched forward from her chair and snatched the token from kishore and gave us a look like …”What the hell ,were u guys doing so long ???”. We stepped back for her to try her luck .
“Hello !! Brother …excuse me ..” . Thr was no response and after sometime she was like “Ayya..Ayya …Anna (literally beggin)”. One guy turned to her side but just ignored her . She started again .,”Excuse me! …we are waiting for a long time ..can u plz..” . No response again . Miss.Dimple , losing her patience made a face . Her eyes and mouth opened wide and there came a torrent of angry words .
The noise she made , had no effect on them . It was only when kishore requested them again , he attended us . All that performance , all that scene , for nothing . :p
After lunch , they all moved for water game and myself and sruti was left in-charge of all their bags .We sat there for hours chatting about the gossips and stuffs happening n our college and were teasing a few in the pool .
When others came back , they had a hot story for us .
Then , we raced each other to cover as many rides as possible . Even the terror KK , didn’t want to get in the Free Fall . After munching a few burgers and taking a few snaps , we left the park .
A day full of fun .Yet another wonderful memory of my college life .
