He: I had once gone for a job to that book publishing house
Me: How was it?
He: They gave me a ballpoint pen and paper and asked me to write
Me: What did you write? Haiku?
He: No yaar. Who writes with ballpoint pens? You know me. I have a collection of classic fountain pens. I am not going to write with a ballpoint pen.
Me: Maybe you should have carried yours.
He: How was I to know they would ask me to write 300 words on the relationship between an author and publisher with a ballpoint pen?
Me: At least they gave you a pen. For my Mumbai Mirror test at TOI, they gave me a pencil.
