    Dear Meena

    When I read this post the day you posted I did not understand anything. So I did not give fb. Then yesterday only I read the post again and read all the fbs. Then I got the answer to write the fb.

    I feel I am misfit in snippets among the good writers here. Everyone including you write so well sometimes I dont know what fb to give.

    Hats off to all of you for writing so well

    love
    viji

    Dear Sri Uncle,

    There is a saying in tamil 'Niraikudam thalumbaadhu' and reading your comment I completely understood this saying today. You, an amateur in writing? If that were true my dear uncle, then I shall as soon call myself the Queen of England.:)

    To have you read my post in itself is a blessing. Getting a positive feedback from you such as this is just icing on the cake. Saying 'thank you' hardly seems enough but I will say it anyway. Thank you for your willingness to always motive and appreciate young, (??!!) upcoming writers in IL. Thank you for always taking the time to share your bountiful knowledge with us in easy, enjoyable doses of wit and wisdom. Thank you for being a rock steady pillar at Snippets for us to lean on when necessary.:bowdown

    I burst out in laughter seeing you move ever so smoothly from the testament to the movie 'Three Idiots'. Only you can talk about Aamir Khan in the same breath as Abraham and still have it sound normal. :)

    Dear Meena,
    Girl you are so funny- not in a slapstick kind of way but I love your slightly sarcastic sense of humor. I was thinking about your blog on emotional constipation while driving to work today. You have invaded my thoughts! I think everyone who read it would have questioned themselves "Am I emotionally constipated ?"

    I look for your blogs nowadays & enjoy them immensely. I am still trying to figure out who is the misfit in my family.

    Thank you for your visit and fb Sujatha. Your daughter sounds like the kind of misfit that every parent yearns for. From the obvious, not to say, undiluted adoration and love that you shower on your little girl, I can tell you with certainty that she could not have been switched at the hospital. As to the power of Sri Uncle's feedbacks, I could not agree more with you. :)

    Srama,

    It is always a pleasure for me to read your comments. Thanks for visiting yet another post of mine.

    Oh, you poor thing! Surrounded by not one but several geniuses, are you? Yes, being a normal person myself, I do understand your feelings. :rotflI suggest that you take comfort in the fact that you are not alone. The majority of the world is 'normal' like you and me so don't you worry, my friend. :biglaugh

    Meena yakka, (chumma pazhakka dosham LOL!),
    Very well written post Meena. And yes, I am a misfit but not in the ways you described in your post, LOL :crazy

    MST,
    If you are a misfit, I am sure you are a positive misfit

    Wow you are a fitness freak too now, Ms.True, Ms.Romance, Ms.Lucky, Ms.Fit!

    My dearest Viji aunty,

    Let me apologize first for having had any part (even a little and unintentional one) in making you feel like a 'misfit' in Snippets. Like I said in the other thread, if you cannot understand something that I have written, the problem is with me and not you for it is the writer's responsibility to choose the content carefully and deliver it in a style that reaches everyone in the forum. In the future posts, I will try to keep this in mind. I appreciate your valuable input very much aunty.

    Welcome DDC! I think this is the first time I am seeing you in the comment section of the Snippets.

    As to me invading your thoughts during the morning drive to work, I only have one concern. Thinking of constipation and driving could be as unsafe as 'drinking and driving', don't you think? So please feel free to kick me right out of your mind while on the road, my friend. :crazy
    It warms my heart to know that you look for my blogs and read them. What better motivation for me to write? Thank you for the lovely fb DDC.:)

    No misunderstandings here Viji aunty. We are, as my kids would say, 'cool'. :)

    I did read your kind words in the milestones about me. Thank you for that.
