Strawberry Seduction

November 25, 2009

What happens when the Partner of the law firm, who chose you during campus recruitment at the time of recession generously offers to take the juniors of the firm out for lunch, and while ordering for drinks, you end up ordering some non-alcoholic mocktail, without looking at the menu card and only at the recommendation of the waiter?

The drink turns out to be shocking pink in colour, with a small pink umbrella and a red cherry on top of it.

The name of the drink turns out to be โ€œStrawberry Seductionโ€, which is revealed when the Partner asks the waiter its name; and the waiter announces the same loudly, some 5-6 times because the Partner fails to grasp the name in the first go.

All I manage to do at that time is giggle uncontrollably, along with all the other juniors at the table; leaving the Partner to wonder about the potency of the joke, or stupidity of the juniors or my ability to choose a drink.


Well, this is a stupid, small post; but tomorrow I am travelling to Burdwan and the day after, to Kharagpur- both for work. After that I have a two-day weekend, after a long long time, due to Id-Uz-Zoha on Saturday. So, I will be off internet for four days and it didnโ€™t feel nice not to feed my blog; especially after its makeover.

      And do you remember how the waiter was pronouncing it? Something like “Strawberry Sediction”?

    Strawberry seduction?! Sounds damn good, but did you say pink colour? Well, that’s a different story all together. ๐Ÿ˜›
    Anyways, a small nice post.
    Have a nice time. ๐Ÿ™‚
