WORDPRESS FIRESIDE CHAT – AMIGO

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Fireside Chat.”


Today’s prompt: What person whom you don’t know very well in real life — it could be a blogger whose writing you enjoy, a friend you just recently made, etc. — would you like to have over for a long chat in which they tell you their life story?


Its interesting how people want to know about others life.. you get to understand the person better.. sometimes it even causes a paradigm shift in the way you percieve things around you or you thoughts w.r.t a particular person. It is a beautiful way to generate mutual trust and respect for another person. No one knows you better than you. Thats why people write autobiographies. They want others to know what they have been to be what they are… thats what some people at wordpress are doing. Respect all you guys out there. And thats why we love them.. even movies.. they build a better undersatanding of a person. They might think they have an absolutely non entertaining story. It is sometimes these very lives that inspire us the mosr This is what i think about life stories.

Was that a bit too serious?

Dont worry i am planning to have a chat with a funny being.. so get ready.. 😉

Since this is a WordPress daily prompt i thought i would chat with someone i would never have met if it wasnt for wordpress and this blog.

This person is someone who brings a smile on my face everytime he/she posts a comment. His/Her posts are thought provoking when it comes to global issues. But he/she proclaims to be from outer space.. a non earthling in his/her words. Presenting you Mr./Miss Migarium

Why do i think i saw a smile on you face migarium?.. its migo in short as you have mentioned in your site. So thats how i am going to address you here.

So why would i select you? I cant possibly ask me to meet you in cafe coffe day or Mc Donalds or starbucks!! That would give away your identity. Lets bet on the safe boundries thats laid out by wordpress and keep your identity undisclosed to others.

The way i think our conversation would proceed:

Me: “Hello migo, how are you? I hope sitting by the wordpress fireside is not daunting to you“

Migo: some witty remark that i cant come up with. 😛

Me: “what would you like to have. My apologies.. I have no clue about your materials that give you energy to live“

Migo:“There is no need for that. You see i am green in color. Which allows me to make my own food through a process of photosynthesis. I think the water will suffice.“

Me: “Oh sure. Here you go. By the way.. is your food generating process the same as that of plants?“

Migo: “I am sorry my earthling friend i am not allowed to make confidential disclosures about my species.“

Me: “Its ok. I understand.“

*awkward silence*

Me: “I dont know how to put this but I wanted to know this.. if.. umm.. you are a Mr or Miss.. you see i am writing a blog. And everytime i mention you i have to put it up as he/she, his/her, Mr/Miss.. its tiring to do it again and again.. it might help me.. i completely understand if you dont want to give the details away.“

Migo: ….. psst migo.. you are suppose to fill this up.

Me:“Its the first time i have seen an alien maintain a blog.. called ‘unnecessary news from earth‘. Why would you do that? The news you put out at times are not necessarily unnecessary. It is sometimes substantially important. I myself am unaware of some facts. Do you wish to elaborate?“

Migo: …

Me: “I am sorry i am ranting. You need to speak something.. “

Migo: …

Me: “Can i learn the your language? Is it easy to learn? “

Migo: “I am sorry. You cant learn our language. If you do.. you will be able to decode the signals from my planet. That would breech the security code i signed to come here.“

Me: “Oh…“

Me: “Hey!! You know your name reminds me of a word in spanish!!“

Migo: “Which one will that be?“

Me: “The word is amigo. In spanish it means friend. Does your name has a special meaning in your language ?“

Migo: …

Me: “Okay. Do you mind if i call you amigo?“

Migo: …

Me: “Can you do me one more favour? Can you watch the movie ‘koi mil gaya‘? Its about an alien (again!) Just google it for description and decide if you want to see it.. it might seem fictitious but its worth a try.“

Migo: …

Me: “It was nice to meet and have a chat with a non earthling.“

Migo: …

So there we are. I hope you dont mind it migo. Fill in the replies through comments or reblog it and edit it.

Adios amigo (Its spanish.. google translate it 😉 )

PK !!

Another stunning performance by Aamir Khan. An absolutly intriguing movie that will make you question the fundamentals  on which our society breaths.

This movie is about an alien (called pk in movie-in hindi pk or peekee means drunk) who lands on planet earth for research. He loses his remote control to his spaceship. And here begins his search to find his stolen remote. On receiving no help from the police he turns to the general public posing his situation and asking for advice. To which everyone gives only one answer.. “now only god can help you!“  Realising that god can solve his problem he goes on a endless spree searching for a god who will solve his problem. Desperately trying to get home he practices all rituals which are supposed to help him impress god who will help him find the remote. Adding a cuteness to the movie is Jaggu (Anushka Sharma), a journalist helps him in his mission.

Not being an earthling he discovers many things which to him are unusual. Like the fact that humans wear clothes itself is what he calls weird.

The movie is comical which will make you laugh and think of the conditions that exist in our planet.

I promise you that the movie is nothing like the other alienistic movie you have ever seen before. With zero bloodshead, it pulls the right cords to immediately connect with the audience. Pk is a movie that will positively change your prespective towards various operations in and around the world. Hope you like it. 🙂 🙂

If you have already watched the movie let me know what you think.
