A friend of mine was flying down to India from the USA. As is tradition, he would go on to shop for his friends and family. Me being one of his closest friends, I couldn’t hold myself back from sending a long list 😂😂 I had video-called him and picked all the things myself– bags, sunglasses, etc. The whole night (day in the States) was spent on shopping, yet some of the items on my list remained unexplored. We had planned to shop the next day, in the same fashion. My friend tried calling me the next night, but I was so sleep deprived due to staying awake the previous night, that I had fallen asleep. I was fast asleep and didn’t hear my phone ringing. I returned his call the very next morning, but his phone was turned off. I assumed that he might be on the flight to India.
When he finally arrived, I was so happy to see him and the bag of gifts in his hand (of course! 😁) but cursed myself for not being available to shop for cosmetics, most important lipsticks. After a good talk, he handed me the bag of gifts. I was pleasantly surprised to see all the cosmetics and lipsticks! I was so excited and happy to receive them, but I had wondered how he managed to choose them without me being available. That’s when he revealed the interesting story behind it.
He had gone to the store but when I did not respond, he looked up my pictures on Google and showed it to the sales girl. Now that was pretty genius of him. I burst out laughing. I’ve never heard of anyone showing a picture to a salesgirl while buying lipsticks. The lipsticks came in different shades and blended in perfectly with my tone. I was in awe of how amazing the lipsticks were! These lipsticks and all the items he had brought were special to me because of all the hard work he had put in. Thanks!
