Size does matter

Here everything is big. I can’t see a monitor less than 21″. The Nissan Titan, is bigger than our Tata 407. The minimum quantity of the coffee is thrice as much as a coffee you would get in Saravana bhavan. When comparing the sizes, the word “small” is equal to the word “medium” in India. Be it be a size of the pizza or the size of the bra, its true. I forgot my belt in Kuvampatti, so thought I will buy one in Walmart. The smallest size available was 30″ and only 3 were in that size. When I asked the sales gal for a 28″, she laughed at me and said, “search in the boys section”. That was was full of kids belts. Certainly I can’t use them for office. So came back to mens section and selected one of the 30 😦 I was wondering why. When I look at the Lays pack or the pepsi cup, I got the answer. No wonder u frequently see the “loose 15 pounds in 5 days” kind-of-ads here. Crazy people. Only in America you can see people ordering a double cheese pizza with a diet coke. 🙂
