An Interesting Dilemma!!

Sometimes you landup in a catch-22. You come across some funny & interesting situations in life which lead to equally interesting dilemmas which often leave you pondering over them.Here's a dilemma I faced,I want your opinions on it.

Last Sunday, I went out with a girl .It had rained that day & the weather was lovely, a respite from the scorching sun.Absoultely great!! I somehow arranged for a car (after all boys will be boys & will do anything to hear that “Wow!” thing from a girls’ mouth,isnt it ?) .As I was fed of going to the same old hang outs like KFC & CCD & all other usual joints so I thought that let’s try a different place this time. So I zeroed on 'Café Morrison', a hard-rock pub in Delhi which plays blasting rock music & where live bands also do their gigs .
So we went to the place .The entrance was replete with the poster & frames of legendary rockbands & rockstars, the atmosphere of the pub was gud with most people making “I love ROCK” statements with their AC/DC, LED ZEP T-shirts ,the lights were dim & the conversation was flowing very smoothly WHEN
The waiter came with the the card with the mocktails & asked us to order .
So as a gentleman would do, I gave the card to my friend. She just looked at it & as with an expression that she had already decided what she wanted to order ,she said “One Beer .yes! One beer for me.I already had a lot of Vodka the last time “
& now it was my turn to order.
I also looked at the mocktails & after seeing a long-list of Martinis, Vodkas & Beers I decided what I wanted to order “One Apple juice for me.So it would be 1 beer & 1 apple juice“. The waiter frowned as though I have just committed a gaffe
& the girl was equally perplexed & said with an amused look “Aaaapple Juice” & the way she said it, I was like 'yes! It’s apple juice not a cow’s piss.'
She asked me :“For whom ? “
With a smile on my face I said
“See, We are two people here ,You have asked for a beer so obviously the other person having Apple juice would me .hehe “ Quite one hell of an intelligent answer.
She said :“Okk!! Then I would also take juice”
I said “Hey just go ahead with your beer .You don’t need to take apple juice just coz I cant give you company in having beer”
She said “Ahh!! Cm would it look if the girl is boozing while the guy is having a juice”
So she ordered “Okk!! Two apple juices please!! “

After that the evening went well but it left me a lil confused.
I thought I know it myself that it’s okk! If I drink once in a while & I know I wont become a drunkard but then also why don’t I go for it ? Am I right with continuing with my apple juices or just to give company I can go ahead with it once in a while. Also, by giving company I seriously don’t mean submitting to the much-hyped “peer pressure” because I seriously don’t give a damn what opinion the other person will have about me, so “peer pressure” is nowhere even near .
Okk!! Why I wrote this post was that I was quite curious to know what would you guys do in a catch-22 like this ? & what’s your take on this topic & as most of us here are teetotallers(that's my assumption ,hope I am not wrong now ;-)).I am waiting for some inetersting answers .

Earlier i was having these drinks occasionally so i could go for it,but now i have promised someone that i won't drink i would prefer apple juice like u did...Its good to see that your decision didn't get affected by a girl's presence.

Seriously Mann...I'll suggest you should never budge from your apple juices. It's not the question of giving company. I've seen umpteen non-drinkers opting for mocktails and juices in clubs and discs, in Mumbai.

Rather, I should say, it takes courage not to be drinking, at this age. So, way to go, man! And well, kudos to the girl you went out with 'coz the way she behaved is the ideal way any female would have reacted. It is part of a custom that a female is not supposed to be drinking when the male partner isn't. Now, I aint planning to go anti-feminist. It's just a custom, that is all.

But seriously, great experience, man!!

@ Sam...

Abey, ab tera yeh "special someone" kaun hai be? ;-)
Ha ha ha ha haha ha ha!!!!!
I'm laughing at the comments. Firstly, OMG, Sam has posted something!!!!! When the fuck was he resurrected!!!!!!!!
And I would like to know like Shayon, who's this 'special someone'???????????????? And please don't say your mom. Give us some of your sipcey masala covered stories. And Mann, when did you stop drinking??? Whenever I speak to you, or you write, there's always a hungover story!!!!!

This a distress call to all TWM folks. This has been the longest duration of inactivity for TWM. So is it that we are all too busy or have all of us hit the writer's block. Let's break the spell of inactivity....HOW?? WHAT SHOULD I WRITE ABOUT?? I have an incomplete draft, shall I post that? May be I will do a recap of the past few days..No mood to write paragraphs.. Connect the dots yourself.. * Kaminey - Movie was good, the ending could have been better..The bong mafia coming with a long gun to the fight scene was really comic..Fahid Kapoor ki acting mast thi..waifey aap log ye movie dekhey kya?? * Books - Finally I read the book Love Story by Erich Segal..Hmmm the story is good but the effect of the classic book has not yet got into me..Meanwhile I am also reading 'The Great Indian Novel' by Shashi Tharoor..I will surely recommend this book..Tharoor has splendidly blended the tales from Mahabharata into the modern Indian history.. *Movies - I watched 'Littl

And The Warrior Returns...

Whoa! They call me a professional blogger and I haven't been able to write a single word for any of my personal blogs, be it TWM :: Online , Shayon's Labyrinth or even Timeless Imagination . I guess, that's what happens when all you do, during the day, is blog and then when you come back home, WarCraft is the only reason that inspires you to open up your laptop's lid and hit the power button!   I wouldn't really say that I am stressed out, thanks to my new job as the Chief Editor of WATBlog , one of country's leading advertising and technology blogs. After all, how many have gotten the opportunity and luck (this is something very rare in my destiny) to convert their hobby, their love, into a profession? The down side is, WAT is a startup, in essence. It just turned 2 , the month I joined, and we have an employee strength of just 12. Yes, you read that right. So, we realize that there is a lot of potential in the market and since our niche is very nascent, it

When I escaped death !!!

12th June'13, 10.30 pm : I was driving back from a dinner party at dizzying speeds of around 80 KMPH inside a city. Then in my  psychedelic drive (yes I get high without alcohol), I saw a signal square few 100 meters ahead. I decreased the speed ( Signals are switched off after 10 pm in Nagpur so exercised caution ) to 60 KMPH (I am an engineer and I like my exact figures) but my car jumped off a speed breaker which I could not spot in the city darkness . I thought I controlled my car by the time I reached the signal square but  baaaaangggg !!! Few seconds later - I realized I was still alive!! saved by the airbag. Take a note everybody. The same day during daytime around 4.30 pm, I was feeling restless with a feeling of fear & anxiety inside me. A friend inquired and I replied back "I can feel something bad is going to happen with me today". That night I was hit by a speeding car straight (at 90 degrees) on the driver's door. Upon impact
