Of Childhood, Adventure, Haircuts & Men

With a day to go we will be entering into the last month of the year and to be honest the year just flew by. I know that sounds cliched but that's the fact. Ever since we have grown up the years just fly past. I remember as a kid I used to wait for the year to pass but it wouldn't and now I want it to slow down but it doesn't. That's how life is. 

As a Kid I wanted to work, earn & enjoy life and now as an adult when I am working & earning I yearn for time to enjoy life and for that I don't want to work but still want money! Bloody confused I am sounding! All these thoughts keep crossing my mind specially when Arnav keeps wishing the year to end soon so that he can go to the Uppar ki class! *rolls eyes* poor fellow doesn't know what he is wishing for. Gone will be the days of araam when his proper studies will begin. But right now its all fun and games for him :) 

Fun & games reminds me of the weekend. We had a roller coaster & eventful weekend. On one hand we experienced The Mumbai MonoRail and though the experience of travelling in it was akin to a roller coaster but it wasn't bad as a tourist. As a daily commuter I don't know how useful it really is.

And the biggest adventure of the weekend was the dropping of my mobile phone in a bucketful of water. As soon as it took a dip my heart too took a dip. I duly turned it off and kept it under the sun to dry. Later pushed it inside the rice box and miraculously it has been working fine. I can not thank God enough for the small mercies.

I also went ahead and got myself lighter by cutting my hair from shoulder length to boy cut and have been answering the obvious question, "you had a haircut"? with, "no I forgot my wig at home".

But the best came from a senior colleague who stopped by and said, "you look different, what have you done?" I mean I was dumbstruck! From Shoulder length to boy cut and he couldn't figure out what I had done. He went to the pantry, came back stood for few minutes before Einstein made an appearance, "aah! You had a hair cut!" MEN!

Men reminds me of how hubby made me wear deep pink dupatta on a light pink salwar and assured its ok. When I went to the lift I had to rush back to change the dress (the original matching duppatta is lost somewhere in the mess that I call "wardrobe"). Little later when I came out wearing a peach dupatta with a peach chooridar he couldn't figure out the how I could tolerate the color difference in the current set! As far as I know there was no color difference! :P Men!

I can write a thesis in Men and still it would me incomplete!

Inventions I Wish Were Made

This post is inspired by RM's post "Inventions I Am Glad Were Invented!"

I thought let me do it the other way round and let my imagination run wild. So let me talk about inventions that aren't anywhere in picture but I wish these things were invented.

Close Your Eyes & you are there Device. I wish there was a device which could transport me from my workplace to my home in a matter of seconds. Like, I close my eyes imagine a place and when I open my eyes I am in the place that I had imagined.

The Calorie Taker, have said this many a times and will say again, a device that takes in all the calories that I eat and gains all the weight also.

Everything that's lost easily should be GPS Enabled I wish the knives, the key chain, the scissors, the minion toy of brat, the pen & well you know what I am saying. All these bloody small small items get lost and are untraceable. If they were all GPS enabled life would be so very easy no?

A device that types the posts going on in my mind, well! well! won't that make active again? And won't that make so many thing easy?

A device that makes you lose weight and take it to the desired level. Well I know I am being repetitive but what if God is reading this list and he should realize how important this is ;-)

Money Device this one is from brat, what if the money plant starts giving money!! I wish! I Wish!

Feeding Device a device that feeds my brat in a matter of minutes! We spend an hour a meal and have to say so many things, if a device takes over hours in a day will shoot up like anything!

Go wild and share your Invention fantasy's!

The Healthy Couple! That's Us!

It was a rainy evening, armed with a steaming hot cup of coffee & big bag of potato wafers I capture my favorite side of the sofa.

This is my favorite corner coz of the view. When you remove the curtain its gives a splendid view of the road and a khaadi!
Couple of seconds later hubby joins me on the other side of the sofa and the only thing that you can hear for some time is the sound of munch! munch! khachar! khachar!

After having finished 1/4th of the chips in the bag..

Hubby: You know till the time we start doing something else about our health we should at least stop eating fried stuff and eat healthy.

*munches few wafers and hands me the bag*

Me: Yes! You are right!

*grabs 4-5 wafers; shove them in my mouth & hands the bag back to hubby*

Hubby: Yes!! *munch* *munch* reduce the intake of potato, don't make fried stuff etc.

*munches few more wafers and passes the bag back to me*

Me: You are absolutely right!!

*grabs 4-5 wafers; shove them in my mouth & hands the bag back to hubby*

The discussion goes on and so does the give & take of the wafers!!

Cheers to a healthy life!
And New Beginnings!

Think Before You Speak!

I almost forgot my promise to self i.e. of posting a picture a day. Not that I did not try; there is Draft no 23 as proof but more on that some other day because I know that if I don't finish this post at this moment I will be adding another draft.

So; this Dussehra we were visiting our Native Village and had clubbed it with visitng another cousin & a quick Pachmarhi trip. The latter deserves a separate post but let me tell you a snippet of conversation we had at the cousins place.

The trip was ending and we were packed; ready to leave for another relatives place. The usual zing bang of gifting cash to kids & adults was happening when Hubby's cousin offered cash to brat. We all went protesting, what's the need, why this much etc etc. (Between you n me; when I was a kid we were taught to protest but I realized with time that protesting doesn't help and it is always better to take what is being offered with a smile no I am not greedy)

After a little while I caught hold of the cousin's daughter and gave her some cash to buy chocolates etc and like is imbibed in us she started with the standard protest. I asked her to be silent and said; "you should never refuse what elders give, now take it."

As soon as my sermon ended a voice from the back says, "if that's the case Mumma why did you make me say no a little while back?" I turned around to find my brat staring at me and asking a very logical question to which I had no answer. 

Every time I promise to self that I need to think a lot before speaking because this brat of mine is growing up a little more everyday and his questions are becoming a little more grown up every day!!! 

Lets have fun!
