Have a tablet.
But I do not need one.
What everyone is aiming for a tablet.
But not me. I am fine.
Everyone else is fine too but wants a tablet.
Maybe they need it but I am fine.
You will be great, brilliant if you have a tablet.
But I am already great.
The world will be at your feet.
It already is.
Reading will become an extra special experience.
But it already is. How will taking a tablet change it?
You will have thousands of books with a click.
But tablet and thousands of books – what is the relationship?
Alright friend, forget books just have a tablet for a change.
But I am fine without a change.
Ok have tablet to have a painless experience of getting a hand on to better cooking tips. Your husband will love you for it!
My husband already loves me. Cooking is not that much of a painful experience that I have to take a tablet.
Ok friend, you want your children to grow up as better human beings.
Yes of course.
You want to know how to do it painlessly.
Take a tablet, it will open your mind to a whole new world of ideas on child upbringing that produces future Steve Jobs!
My mind is already opened, do not need a tablet.
My friend, you are proving to be a hard nut to crack today.
Dear friend, you are not being your normal rational self today.
I am your well-wisher.
A well-wisher does not force a tablet when it is not needed.
I have been worried for your health.
You miss not being in touch with people as much as you used to be when you worked.
Yes but how can a tablet help.
With a tablet you can be in touch with millions of people around the world, you can write, inspire, excite just like you did in your previous job.
Will a tablet help me do so?
Yes definitely my dearest friend!
Your choice! You have to pay for it.
My choice- money that should not be an issue, pain killers are cheap.
You said I need a tablet.
But I did not say a pain killer!
So what is it then – some new tablet? Tell me please!
Tablet….I mean Samsung Tablet or an I Pad!
What….is I Pad a tablet?
Yes it is.
Since when for I have one and it does not ease my pain as well as Rs. 5 Ponstan does.
