Has it happened to you…

~ That you lay your hands on a book you had been waiting to pick up, start reading it rightaway…few pages through, you get bored and leave the book as it is, unfinished? And one fine day, after many months, an intense craving to read grows inside you and you pull out the same book from your shelf, to read. This time, but, you are hooked?

~ That you walk past your neighbour’s house and find her garden so fully bloomed with flowers and greenery that you feel this terrible urge to run to the nursery to get some plants for your own garden?

~ That a singer, a practical stranger to you, touches you with her outstanding singing, virtually transporting you to a different world in such a way that tears start rolling down your eyes?

~ That you set out to the kitchen to get a spoon, on the way find a newspaper lying on the floor, pick it up, keep it on the table in its designated place, check your mobile to know what’s trending on FB, reach the kitchen and BAM you forget what you had come there for? Was it moon? Oh yeah, spoon! Argh!

~ That you drive through a busy rumble of traffic and all of a sudden this moron just cuts in from your side to go ahead and you let out an exasperated, ‘What the hell!’…just then your daughter springs up from the back seat to ask you admonishingly, ‘Did you just say “what the hell”, Amma?’ :-/

~ That you talk about your ‘Man Friday’ going on a cleaning spree around every nook and corner of the house and your brother thinks you’re referring to your husband, when you actually meant your domestic help? πŸ˜›

~ That you step of the house to go to the doc and half way through you realize that you have forgotten to carry your purse?? 😯

~ That you come face to face with a person whom you have met a couple of times, even interacted with once or twice, and who has done no harm to you whatsoever, yet, each time you see the person you sense a strong negative vibe?

~ That, while waiting at the traffic signal, you get so engrossed in ‘What’s App’-ing that you dont realize that the signal has turned green and all the vehicles in front of you have gone? And when you do look up, you see this big empty gap between your car and the stretch-end making you dawn on the fact that you have actually missed a whole cycle of the signal from red to green, all the while tapping into your phone and you’re now stuck back at red?!

****You say a meekly thanks to God for not sending any vehicles behind you to curse and swear honk at you furiously, keep your phone aside and slowly move on, fixing your eyes intently on the signal waiting to go green.****

  1. Tell your mom about it, and she will say that the root of all your problems is the mobile phone which should promptly been burnt to ashes, and the ashes strewn far and wide


            1. Done. But you’ll have to be ready to make peace with the fact that you won’t be lucky enough to get all the chocos in my kitty! I will have already sneaked away some for my own consumption! Yep I am a major major chocolate lover in case you didn’t gauge by now πŸ˜‰ πŸ˜›


  2. Most of these things have happened to me. πŸ™‚ BTW, you inspire me to do a similar post. πŸ˜€

    LOL @ Man Friday and your daughter chastising you for saying WTH. πŸ˜€ Moral police, indeed! πŸ˜€


  3. Hahahah!! If the last situation had happened to you anywhere in India, then trust me you will know about it in 2 seconds! πŸ˜› πŸ˜€ With all the honking, curses, cries and even two cars nearly knocking you over in their haste to get past you and through that existing green light! πŸ™„

    You referred to your domestic help as Man Friday? πŸ˜› Even I thought you are referring to your husband! πŸ™„

    Forgetting what I came to do in a certain room is something that happens ALL the time to me! πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€


    1. Ash, I have driven around crazy roads of Delhi, I know so well what you’re saying! The stretch would have been a mini battle ground of sorts! πŸ˜‰


  4. LOL!! Looks like a lot has been happening lately! I find it very common; maybe as parents we have so much in our mind that we get distracted easily! Your new layout is lovely, Deeps!


  5. Books – Yes! And sometimes it even gets to engrossing πŸ˜‰
    Music – So so many times πŸ™‚
    Kitchen and spoon – Sounds so familiar πŸ˜›
    Car and daughter – Hahaha! Luv it πŸ˜‰
    Man Friday – Hehe πŸ˜› πŸ˜›


  6. πŸ™‚ Yes to a lot of them. I try to complete the books I pick up, but yes, there have been a few I have had to abandon πŸ™‚

    But your man friday, I thought you were referring to R as well πŸ™‚


  7. Hello Deeps!

    Yes for a few of them. Though I strongly wave a grandmotherly finger against whatsapping on the road. Naughty gal! πŸ˜›

    And baout forgetting what you came for – I missed the bus stop today and jogged back to work from 2 stops away. Not something I am proud of, clearly πŸ˜›
