An okay-shokay car was moving along a smooth road, everything perfect. Suddenly a huge tree trunk fell out of nowhere and crushed it to a pulp.
The car was my nice healthy diet, begun only this morning- cornflakes, apple, single toast (sans butter ***SOBS***), an egg (all this not together, in the span of 4 hours may be).
The tree trunk is the half-packet of Haldiram's bhujia that my feeble will power succumbed to while watching the gutsy Bullock in The Blind Side.
Diet was not for a slim avatar but a reaction to a gnawing fear of something like an endoscopy, a scary test that a dear one went through. A pipe down the food-pipe. Healthy food = no ulcers= no endoscopy. If only.................
Anyway, things that need my attention:
1. toe nails. They are growing long. really long. I can't find my nail cutter and I am simply not going to waste money on a pedicure. I am broke. So I spend some valuable minutes imagining getting hit by a table leg or something more sinister and my toe nail coming off etc.
2. a desk growing vertically. a frame, a vase, pens that don't work (this is one crucial element that makes a desk a desk), papers, books, newspapers, bottle, earphones a bag which has god knows what, a nokia packet which has god knows what and , well, dust, of course. At this rate, if I wake up one morning to a cock-a-doodle-do by a cock perched on my desk, I won't be surprised.
3. piles of clothes , here and there and everywhere.
4.errr. study. (the reason I gave myself for quitting the job)
