Back from the last wet-nite for the Batch of 2007 – 2009. Emotions are too fresh for me to blog about the same, which I’ll touch later.
But on a parallel note, I always wanted to delve on another aspect – Wet nites give you interesting insights into the character of men, of what they are, how different they are. Mind you, a pinch of salt required!
First come the Absentees. These are a motley of different sorts of people; a few even consider the time-period from 11 p.m to 7 a.m as only fit for sleeping and dedicatedly follow that rule; but they all dedicatedly make it a point to miss all wetnites, be it common-room or in JLT.
Then come the Couplers – Both the drinkers & non-drinkers ones. Generally the first to enter the dancing floor, and always the last to exit too. What would XL wetnites be without them!
Then enter the Casanovas – Every batch has a collection of these; with amazing grace they jump from one girl to another, making all the right moves on, and off the dance floor, and at times even putting the couples to shame 😉
Then come in the Xlers – There is no other way to refer to them. They drink their hearts (and their wallets) out, they dance till the wee hours, considered safe by the chicks, they even get to groove with the “chicks” of the batch for a while. These are the ones that mostly land up for breakfast. Every wetnite.
Finally come the Couch Potatoes (no pun intended 🙂) These gentlemen (haven’t yet seen the female sex donning this role) are content to watch the dance floor silently from the sidelines, always found with a drink in one hand & a smoke in the other. Kindly note, they should be the ones to target if youare interested in wetnite graxes! 😀
And then there are the Singles. They desire to go about dancing with the girls but are too tongue-tied to do, and hence tank themselves up with liquor. These poor souls then go hunting for a dance partner, but are mostly shooed away with a disapproving look.
As for the ladies, I guess it’s a completely different game! I still haven’t been able to understand them – complex creatures, a bundle of emotions & attitudes. But maybe, someday, I’ll make a post about them 😉
