You’ve Got Male: The stereo’s playing In the Wee, Small Hours of the Morning, very, very softly because this is the wee small hours of the morning. It’s 3 am, I logged onto my mailbox some four hours ago and I still have 15 unanswered messages to go. The prospect of curling up in a razai is beginning to seem very alluring indeed, but as I scroll down the list of messages, it’s harder and harder to throw in the towel. What harm can another hour do, I think? An hour later, I know. My toes are frozen, my fingers are numb from all that typing. There’s still three messages left-too bad. They’re going to have to wait till tomorrow, today evening, whatever. The blood in my veins has long since been replaced by coffee, I have a 9 o’clock appointment to make tomorrow-oops, today morning. So many men, so little time, thinks Sayoni Sen as she finally shuts down for the day, heartlessly consigning three plaintive love calls to the netherworld of messages received but not replied to. A bleary thought goes through my mind as I finally get to that elusive razai: I should’ve got myself a secretary when I decided to look for love and romance online. Or I should’ve gotten cloned, several times over, with 10 hands and four computer consoles chucked in for company. Or I should’ve had my head examined.
