Is there something black in the lentils?
What the hell is with you? I cannot even afford the lentils I’d like to eat what with prices going through the roof.
No, I meant the Sania Mirza-Shoaib Malik engagement. Isn’t there something a bit off the cards here?
If you have something to say, please spit it out, I have no time for guessing games in this heat.
Her engagement broke off this January and now we here, strictly in the media that she and Malik have been an item for six months.
I see you are on to something here. But, we must look at the brighter side of things at all times.
What would that be in your eyes?
The mum-in-law-to-be has said that they would not stop the dear girl from playing tennis post-marriage. Now that’s quite a turn up for the books for conservative Pakistani families who may not want to see their women in less than modest clothing.
You really are behind the times.
Malik has been around the block a bit, having cancelled engagements with women over the phone.
Oh dear, I do hope that all will end well in this case, because I can’t quite see where Sania’s career is heading.
But this is a good thing for cross-border relations. We must now think of other matches that we can fix, and I don’t mean it in the context you may understand given your perverse bent of mind.
Do say: It’s love all.
Don’t say: Quite a volley here!
