Today started surprisingly pleasant for me. The reason being none other than finding hot water for bathing. There is one big geyser in our hostel bathroom,but even if we leave it switched on for one hour , the water just wouldn’t heat up more than a meagre lukewarm So thanking all the gods present above us, I got down for office with a beautiful smile on my face,(ya, sometimes I do that thinking of the funny situations in my life). As I neared the zebra crossing, to reach to the bustop on the opposite side, a group of people already had started crossing unmindful of the vehicles streaming by. I ran and joined the group and followed them. Obviously I was the last one to cross and a speeding car(wagonR to be precise :P) came just inches infront of me and stopped. The sudden break had caused that screeching sound of tyre on the road. All eyes fell and rested over me. But what about me? As soon as I realized that the car was about to hit me, my hands went above covering my ears, my eyes got tightly shut , mouth wide open , I stood their transfixed.
You see, I have read somewhere that during such moments where u see death so nearby, your past starts flashing before your eyes. But to tell the truth, nothing flashed infront of me. As the horn went on blowing I understood that I am still alive, I ran to the bustop without even turning behind to see the driver or anyone nearby. But my face revealed no embarrassment aftr reaching the bustop. Inside me, my heart had just finished a hundred metre race. But the rendezvous was not to end there. I reached office safely, but there also I had to cross a highway. I was standing on the road divider and as I stepped down on the road, my right leg twisted and turned and I just coudnt bear the pain. I have no clue whether its related , but from then on my right side of the neck is also paining. Now I walk and talk like a robot.
But restriction on my body movement didn’t stop me from enjoying the evening with my friend. We shopped!! :P Actually I shopped and my friend just watched me shopping. She said it’s a treat in itself. I am not proud I say..
Then went to KFC, had zinger burger, pepsi and popcorn chicken. I guess they got a new marketing head, otherwise why did they take so long to come up with this idea of chicken like popcorns!There they gave us a piece of paper to write down our feedback. We wrote wholeheartedly(really!)
‘The zinger burger is awesome but can you not hurt the poor chickens while making it…’
