Just When…

….I was pleased with a lady I met after a long time in the bus stop telling me that I have lost oodles of weight and could pass off as a college girl, I get two people in office asking me if I am pregnant! (I AM NOT!!!)

…I thought R got used to staying at home with MIL since her daycare is closed, she threw a huge ‘Amma mat jao, Appa mat jao’ cry today morning 😦

…I had lost hope in humankind after reading the newspaper, two guys helped RD and me get off a crowded local with huge luggages when we returned from Kerala…Goodness exists, we just need to find it!

…I thought work was giving me respite, it came back with a vengance yesterday! *God help me*

….I thought the romance was out of my life, RD surprised me by taking me to a books by the kilo exhibition sale 🙂

…I look at the guy adoringly trying to search books from the bunch on the other side of the exhibition, he asks me loudly in the book sale so that the whole world and sundry hears, RM, do you want a M&B? I picked up a couple for you‘..Jeez

….I was losing hope in Mumbai locals, I got a slightly empty train yesterday while going back home

…I thought ‘wow this local is empty‘ a lady hit me on my leg with her high heels while rushing to get off!!!

…I thought I should concentrate on work and finish the report, something blogworthy popped my mind! and here I am writing it 🙂

  16. sandhya says:

    Hmmm…nice post. Loved the juxtapositions. 🙂

    And only nutcases like us will consider being taken to a book sale as highly romantic!! 😀

    As for daycare centres being closed in vacations – I have a view from the other side, as a very close friend works at one such centre, that does not close in May. It has been near impossible for her to take time out with her family, especially as the place does not have enough employees for them to take turns with their holidays. This, according to her, leads to early burnout. So either these places should stop being such scrooges, and employ more taff, or else keep the place closed for a couple of weeks as. R’s does, I suppose.
