Disclaimer : Before you make any assumptions, I am talking about a real rat with tantrums double its size. However, it can be interpreted in several ways. The story you’re about to read is true and NO RATS WERE HURT IN THE PROCESS (YET). Can’t guarantee the same for their feelings though.
During the birth of a child in a movie it would show the pregnant lady lying in bed, crying hysterically in pain and suddenly there would be a crying baby beside her. I would be confused but I assumed that was the process. I actually believed the baby would just somehow appear and the tummy would reduce. Simple right? If cupid could make two people fall in love, I was sure he would be able to slide the baby beside too. Right? I didn’t really know then how a child was born. (Until I studied biology and that horrified me to bits). My way of analogy was much better. Don’t you think so?
The only thing that I really don’t get is why they bark and run after a car? Do they want to drive the car? Or are they just bored and want to have some fun? True Scenario : It’s a silent lane. You’re driving casually and suddenly you see a bunch of dogs barking and running towards you quite ferociously. The dogs don’t know you’re a dog lover inside. What do you do then? I usually can’t help but bark along. I know! I know! This is a weird confession but when a dog barks, I feel the need to bark too. Oh god! Tell me it happens to you too. In my defense, I just like giving them company but that’s my approach and I have no intention to rectify this too. What do you do?
It’s not that I feel unwanted. It’s just the opposite in fact. Never have I felt alone because I always have something that can keep me busy. I am never bored because it can keep me amused all the time. I can actually cancel plans without feeling guilty by saying I am busy (taking care of myself). You can say I am being stalked because wherever I go, it stays by my side. Of course initially it was a little alarming but I got used to its company. I don’t remember when and how it started but now I cannot imagine my life without it. The worst part is I don’t care for it but it can hurt my feelings a lot. Like bring tears to eyes (without any fail) almost every time.
Now you really want to meet my soulmate. Right? Fine. It’s little shy though. Never comes out openly but also never fails to embarrass me in front of others.
Sometimes, the little mistakes that you make, goes a long way to make you the laughing-stock for others and trust me when I say that I am the queen of making blunders.
I remember waking up with a smile on my face (I usually feel happy the day I have something new to wear. Even Office seems appealing.) Yeah, I know. Things can quickly go against you if you’re not careful enough. The good thing is I survived. (Again) The bad thing is I doubt I learnt my lesson. Lol.
I usually remember names but yes there are times when I am talking to the person like a long-lost friend and all that is processing in my mind is what’s the name of this person. The bonding makes the people around assume that you’re best of buds but all you can think of is “Oh God! Don’t let her know I don’t remember her name.”
It’s understandable though if the friend is your parents. Right? Like how am I supposed to remember someone I met when I was small? They are like ” Hey! You have grown up so much. Remember me?” – No I don’t but somehow I don’t want to hurt his feelings and so I tell him that “Of course! I remember you” (Hoping he wouldn’t further ask me about anymore details) but his expectant face reveals how much he is waiting for me to utter his name. Dad??? Come on! Help me!!! He is your friend.
Fine! Such situations are still acceptable but what if the other person is your friend? There is this moment that I am going to share with you all which I am not so proud of.
So everything was working just as planned. The main plan being laying on my bed watching Netflix. The thing is I got engrossed in it so much that I failed to see that slowly I was surrounded by a 1 feet deep water. I noticed it only when the door bell rang and I put my foot down in search of my slippers. The exact thought? I am so dead.
But Wait!!! That’s not just it. The water had spread evenly (if I might just add) throughout my 1 BHK that I live in. The pipe from the washing machine had somehow freed itself and was doing its own snake dance while vomiting the water. It was such a nightmare. Trust me. It took me 2 hours to soak the water in towel and squeeze it in the bucket because there was no outlet as such where I could just sweep the water out.
Do you think the washing machine took its revenge on me? I think I have never worked so hard before in cleaning my house. Thankfully my recliner and my bed was safe. I should definitely treat my machine with love the next time. 😉
You know the saying “the way to a mans heart is through his stomach?” Well let me tell you, I may not be man but this is so true for me. I cannot walk or talk with empty stomach let alone work. I am in a very serious relationship with food. I may be a bad cook but am definitely a goot eater. Come on! Someone get me food right now and it better be something tasty. Don’t mind (I might get bossy when I am hangry) LOL
PS: Let me know how’s your Friday treating you so far. Do you get angry when you’re hungry too? Oh and what’s the fastest and easiest recipe that you have made to fill your stomach? I will try to make that once I am home. Now don’t give me daredevil recipes which involves fire or knifes. 😛 I just realized that I am hopeless. Fine! I will eat something outside.
