Goalposts and Girls

A 28-year old Ronovijay listened intently to 18-year old Mitthu’s unfortunate bus incedent  as they relaxed on the turf,  looking at the goalpost after a tiring game.

“Goalposts are Girls”

Ronovijay started an epic chat with his much younger cousin on his birthday.

“The metal frame just stands out there, throughout the entire game…,” the elder cousin continued. “It’s decked up in a ‘one-piece’ net and whitewashed before the match.., just like a girl in a one-piece dress with make-up, all decked up for a party.” Turning around he asked Mitthu, “If the goalpost could speak during a game, what would it say?”

“Well, any goalpost would say – Don’t score a goal! I pressume” Mitthu replied like any footballer would.

“Nooo!”  Rono exclaimed getting up. Standing in the metal frame. He impersonated the goal post. “The goalpost would scream – Cummon …! Score!!! For me, please…!!! I want Cameras n’ Crowd to look at me… please…!!!” Rono’s Footballing histrionics were a sight to watch!

“But…why??!” Mitthu laughed nervously.

“Goalposts need their five seconds to fame” Rono said returning back. “Only the one who scores a goal could give that fame, not a goalkeeper who stands is right next to goalposts for 90 minutes.”
