This post was intended to be published on Monday. But I wasn’t able to publish it on Monday owing to the heavy work , stupid clients and laziness
- I was sipping tea on Saturday morning when dad came in to the living room to announce the arrival of a kitten in the backyard. I quickly kept the cup on the coffee table and ran towards the backyard to meet the visitor. The visitor looked very frightened. The Florence Nightingale in me pledged to nurse the kitten. I got a bowl of milk for the kitten. The poor creature ran away on seeing me. I went after the kitten to fetch it since it was raining outside. Just as I caught the little creature it bit me so hard that I almost threw the kitten. All this for being a Florence Nightingale. Yes I did visit the doctor to take a TT injection. urgh!
- Two of my ex-colleagues invited a few of us for a lunch they were hosting (God bless them ). How could I refuse a free lunch and that too at my favorite Chinese restaurant. When I told my dad I would be out for lunch, he was quick enough to ask me if I was going for a party. Party has now become a forbidden word in Mangalore. When I assured him that it was only a lunch he nodded reluctantly. The lunch was great as expected. When I returned home I saw my dad heaving a sigh of relief. I wonder how many parents would breathe in relief on seeing their children return back home unhurt post the Home Stay episode.
- As I walked out of the Chinese restaurant, I came face to face with a hoarding crying “SALE SALE”. For the records, I am not a shopaholic. But what attracted towards the hoarding was not SALE but the letters written in thick font saying “HALF PRICE” sandwiched between SALE. The half price did the trick as I walked to the store as if I was hypnotized. There are times when the not-so-fond-of-shopping girls like me go crazy in a store. Probably it has to do with the vibe in the surroundings. I indulged in unplanned shopping though I am doubtful if the half price what the store claimed is any true.
I know it is too late for me to ask this. But some wise man/woman once said, ‘Better late than never’. Er.. what was I planning to ask anyway. Before I forget, How was your weekend?
