My Friend's Tale!


The other day, when I found a lady grinning widely at me in the Mall, the friendly person that I am, I graciously flashed my million-dollar-smile in return!

The lady hugged me and said, “Oh Sweety! How you have changed, my friend!”

“Sweety, You were short & plump & had straight hair when we were in School, but now you are tall & thin & have curly hair…!”

Understanding that this certainly was a case of mistaken identity, I clarified patiently, “Listen, My name is not Sweety… it is Anita!”

It was the lady’s turn to be shocked as she opened her eyes wide with disbelief and exclaimed, “Sweety! You have changed your name also!!!”


Note: This story is based on a friend's real-life tale!

    1. Ha Ha Vishal! Your story deserves a post too :) The girl must have been so convinced of your identity, else she would never have kissed!!!
      Some people look alike and other people can't tell the difference or they get confused & make such errors! :)
