Studying a case...

Today i was bamboozled by a tiny tot (Rashmi) to write a verrrry diiirty post (hahaha).. she wanted me to include her name and so i take this as a means of teasing her thru my blog..She threw me very comical (scary, according to her) looks when i teased her in class today.... and this is my revenge (muhahahahahaha.. you don't know what i am capable of, rashmi)

We were in Event Management class (UPDATE: I CHANGED FROM MATHS TO EVENT MANAGEMENT.. BEST DECISION I'VE EVER TAKEN IN MY LIFE) and one of our classmates was called to read out a case study... Rashmi and i were sitting together, lost in thought (as usual, when you co-relate this with me) when she started reading out the case... i will include our conversation along with the study...

An event planner was asked to plan a woman's 40th b'day
(Me: why would a woman want to celebrate her 40th b'day.. she's not getting any younger Rash: You are right.. maybe her hubby is doing it..
even then, the only way the party would be remotely interesting was if it were a skinny dipping or nude party!
Rash: Pervert!
You watch no.. that's what it's gonna be)

The woman's husband (Me and rash: Ah!) wanted a party that would be unique (Me: I told you) and memorable not only for his wife but also for all who attended it
(Me: Confirmed.. nude party only.. how else would it be memorable? Rash: Yup.. you are right! Nude party it is)

He was thrilled with the idea of a luncheon harbour cruise
(Me: Skinny dipping! Hahaha
Rash: I swear.. imagine forty year olds skinny dipping.. yuck!)
Me: That man is very thrilled also.. what a pervert he must be.. poor wife.. he's just using her birthday as an excuse to look at other old women
Rash: Like that's any consolation
Me: I don't think he has better options)

The planner was to arrange for the boat rental and catering and decorate the boat on the morning of the party.
(Rash: What theme would he choose? Me: The 70's?
But nude/skinny dipping and the 70's?

Yeah.. that was the time when Saroja Devi's one piece swimming suit was popular in tamil cinema..

They had swimming suits then?

Of course.. but wait, I forgot.. they don't need swimming suits here..

Whaaaa? Oh yeah....)

As it turned out, there were three complications. The weather. It rained and so they could not use the top deck
(Me: My economics teacher in school used to tell us that weather affects.. uh.. you know.. apparently there is a lot of 'slip between the cup and the lip' during tropical weather
You mean?

I mean what you are trying to mean
Top deck?

Are you thinking what i'm thinking?

Rash: Oh man!)

of the boat (Rash and i : oooooooohhh!) which was wonderful (Rash and i: ROTFL) but only on a sunny day (Rash and i: Oooooh again!)

The limitation meant that the downstairs area became quite crowded. (Rash and i: Ahhhh! Crowded?How crowded? *giggles*).

The harbour was also quite choppy and a few felt sea sick because of the swell
(Rash: Swell? Sick? Ahh.. early stages...
Ahaaaa! Rash.. i thought u were a kid

I know all this ok...

Me: Ok, really? Then, quiz. Why do crickets do it at night?
Rash: Huh?
Thought so. Useless

Ok, tell me why?
Me:Because there is a night watchman to help with their privacy (haw haw haw!) :D
Me: Thank you thank you
Lecturer: Why are you both laughing?
Us: Uhh... *flashing smiles* nothing ma'am)

The thing that the planner really hadn't thought through carefully enough was the needs of the children who accompanied their parents.
(Rash: Oh my... kids! I wonder what they went through
Would have learnt biology at an early age

Rash: How funny!
They should've hung a board outside the boat saying 'Above 18 only'

Rash: Maybe they got it wrong and hung the 'PG' board.

The older ones were just bored (Rash and i: Obviously.. why would they be interested in 40 yr olds?) and not difficult to manage. The toddlers were a disaster. Mothers were on the run all afternoon keeping up with their toddlers who wanted nothing more than to climb over the rails (Rash and i: Probably plotting escape routes from the boat. Poor kids!)

By the end of the afternoon it was the mothers who were ready to throw themselves over (Rash and i : I wonder what they saw!)

Finally, the cruise lasted too long - long enough for some of the party to drink too much and long enough for others to get desperate for dry land
(Rash: Any comments?
Me: None at all!)

ABHISHEK SiM said...

i had to re-read the original case-study to understand it. it's difficult to concentrate when you have "images" conjured up in your mind. you really made it whatever chriz does to you posts. neat work there - i mean dirty work there neatly done.

btw, good work gal - you must be missing those "squeak squeak..." from game theory :P

Swetha said...

Awed at imagination.. :D, and of course the perspective from 20somethings to 40 somethings..

I am looking at it from the 40something wondering why the 20 somethings are laughing their rockers off :D!

Interesting information on Crickets!!
