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..
Me:
even then, the only way the party would be remotely interesting was if it were a skinny dipping or nude party!
Rash: Pervert!
Me:
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?
Rash:
But nude/skinny dipping and the 70's?

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

Rash:
They had swimming suits then?

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

Rash:
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
Rash:
You mean?

Me:
I mean what you are trying to mean
Rash:
Top deck?

Me:
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...
Me:
Ahaaaa! Rash.. i thought u were a kid

Rash:
I know all this ok...

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

Rash:
Ok, tell me why?
Me:Because there is a night watchman to help with their privacy (haw haw haw!) :D
Rash: AAAAAAAAAAAA.....THU!
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
Me:
Would have learnt biology at an early age

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

Rash: Maybe they got it wrong and hung the 'PG' board.
Me:
Possible!)


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!)

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
