I don't generally write dedicated posts for people who don't actually read my blog, but some people are just that special. I actually intended to write this on his birthday, which was on the 14th of February, but, that being the day I first met Jatin, with my roka ceremony being the next day, the day was a little too hectic for me.
Some of this is lifted from the testimonial I wrote for him on orkut, but I have made my modifications.
It's been seven months that he took up work at the same office as me. We've actually known each other for about five years now, and we were always friendly with each other. But when we started carpooling, I started sharing almost everything with him, because for about four months, it was just the two of us in the car. I've discovered that he's a guy who can give even a girl like me (who tends to be rather unstable emotionally) a very objective and reasonable perspective on a lot of things. He's a guy who can cheer me up on the worst of days with his jokes that a lot of people classify as PJs but I tend to like. He's a guy who can actually figure out just when I need cheering up, based on the speed at which I drive.
In the days when I was carpooling with just Varun, on days when I was really exhausted or frustrated with someone or something at the office, I would look forward to getting out of the office, not because it would mean that I would get to go home, but because of the drive. Before that, driving all the way to and from work was quite a pain.
He's the kind of guy who won't let you stay too serious for too long. He just cannot formulate two complete sentences in succession without dealing a completely senseless joke, which is sometimes exactly what one needs to lighten the mood. Or to keep up the good cheer, if the mood is already light.
Keep the PJs going, dude. Will miss you lots.
