"Fine, I'm not saying that Jaipreet and my anonymous fan are one and the same..." "But I am", I chipped in. He ignored me and continued, "You can't actually blame a lack of inspiration on this. I've even shaved my head. You can do a whole Bald and the Beautiful series on Mia and me...everyone is just always looking for a better time, a better place, a better moment, a better person. People don't realize that it's all in the now. Let me ask you something, am I the type of guy you thought you'd end up with" A rather loaded question and smelt of a definite trap! "Oh don't think so much...of course I'm not", think back to all the crushes you've had or who you wanted to be with when you were a little girl.
I cast my mind back to my earliest memorable crush, a character of this children's show - Jimmy from H.R Pufnstuf - this yellow shirted singing dancing phenomenon with a page boy hair cut. Then I thought about when my friend, Partha, and I decided at the age of 7 or 8 that we would change our names to Charles and Barbara and get married when we were older, or maybe it was get married first and then get our name changes...either way Charles and Barbara was the more important part. There were various others - but all through this I always imagined myself with a tortured brooding artist sort - passionate, venemous, powerful and a relationship filled with ummm...well constant change, dynamism, excitement. Sid shook his head..."It's all the movies bubz...all a fantasy. All relationships are the same...they all settle down. Unless you're with this brooding artist type who sounds like he'll be a complete idiot. Mia and I are your golden era".
