Vaidehi Murthy, @ButVai’s Twitter handle is a collection of puns, dad-jokes, witty observations, and sometimes thinly-veiled life advice.
In her own words, she's a 'frood'. Urban Dictionary defines frood as "a really amazing" person. And we have no doubts about it since her tweets are totally the solution for Monday, Tuesday and basically -- everyday blues.
“My goal is to be the nonstick pan of people. To savour all that I'm given, without getting attached,” maybe that's how Vaidehi would also describe herself. Or so we think.
My goal is to be the nonstick pan of people.
To savour all that I'm given, without getting attached.
