You know, there's a broccoli ice-cream that's prepared somewhere in Nariman Point. :-)

And whats wrong with sleeping with a stuffed animal? (Not that I do, you understand..) But isn't a pillow like a big, stuffed maggot? He he!

A maggot ain't an animal, is it? Hmm..

Broccoli ice-cream ?!?!
Only in Bombay, man....

Sleeping with stuffed animals? Nothing wrong or right, I've never done it, so :P
