Sanely drunk...and career options of my prospective wife to be...

Was sitting with some friends for dinner the other day and about half a drink of vodka got one of the guys to start talking...
(Its interesting what all topics you can touch in this world when you are "slight" drunk...u know..not the "talli" phase...the lighter times..you know whats happening around you and you are not simply blabbering irrelevant stuff...i think you can have some of the best conversations of your life in that phase...!)

"You know...Everyone knows drinking too much affects your liver...its bad for your health...but still we drink...its like we wanna prove whoever claimed it that he was wrong...so CHEERS to that! Lets prove him wrong...!!"
And he raises his glass...up high...

"Are you sure it was a HE who claimed it and not a SHE?" said another friend raising his glass....

Ignoring to comment on this...the first guy went on again...
"You know what...I hope i get married to a DOCTOR...I mean...wont it be great to have a doctor in the house itself...no medical expenses!! Damnn....I hope i get married to a doctor!!"

And that put me into a thought process...


If i had to choose a person i would spend the rest of my life with based on her career/job...here are some of the top contenders...


  • A DOCTOR: Naaaa....marrying a doctor is not a good thing i feel...(unlike my drunk friend)...mainly because...you wont really save on medical bills...coz you hardly fall that "gravely" sick in your young age...and if you plan to marry a doc considering the "medical bills"advantage for OLD age...then might as well get one of your kids into the medical field..that way...by the time he is grown up...you are almost dead...and ready to be his guinea pig for all the medical illnesses...the longer you are alive..the better a doctor he has grown out to be!

  • A SOFTWARE ENGINEER: this one cud be cool...Now...i think this kinda girl will understand me ...i mean...she is tech friendly...career friendly...used to long working hours...and would definitely be smart enough...Plus i think...being an Engineer myself...and hating the "techincal" side of it...she could get a chance to change my mind abt it! (Now that will be a healthy fight to have!)

  • A FASHION MODEL/ACTRESS: Now now...i don think ANY guy would deny that this is his ultimate dream bride...so is mine...i mean....JUST IMAGINE...! (and i would leave the rest for imagination...)

  • A MBA GRADUATE : This one could be cool...since i myself have an MBA degree..but only if she earns a lot...atleast 4-5 times more than me! (Yes....im not those insecure-guy-about-his-wife-doing-better types...i welcome increased income instead...) Also since...it is argued that MBA's are responsible for ruining the present economy and pulling it to recession...i think me and wife can tactfully device new plans to ruin the economy more...collectively! (Ha ha ha...one more thing...my life would be a whole mess of budgets,strategies and aimless research!)

  • A FINANCIAL ANALYST : Now i think this would be a great person to marry...a person who understands numbers...mainly because i dont! (ohh...i soo dont!) To top this....if the girl is one who has working knowledge of the investment sector (u knw....how these so called "investment plans" and "insurance schemes" have soo many fine prints you dont know of and will never know of...!) I mean...i came to know recently that you can earn more insurance premium just by deciding a right date to start the plan! So...if u have a finance expert in the house...Now thats something...afterall its MORE money in you pocket!

PS:- I dont intend to hurt the sentiments of any of the professionals through this post and this may please be taken as lightly and in good humour as far as possible...
Plus...a major criteria which i haven't mentioned in any of the above is that you first have to immensely beautiful! So...nothing professional there anyway...
:-P
