Not a cooking or food blog! I just share what's cooking in my mind.

Today was perfect. I woke up before the alarm. I made very tasty food. My son woke up to just one wake-up call. I knew exactly what I was going to wear (Girls!! You get me!!). My skin was glowing. My tea was perfect. Husband listened all my instructions (Hehe! It was a like a dream). I got ready right on time to go to work. I slid inside the cab (with so much style). My hair was flowing in all the right directions. The AC in the cab was perfect.

When I walked to office, there was a jump in my walk. When I went near an elevator, it just opened (yup!! This actually happened). The security person said, “Good morning Madam.” I was in form! I went to fill water in my bottle and there was no line of people with a similar goal. I turned the tap, filled water. I turned with such panache with my heel totally co-operating with the turn. I flipped my hair like there was an audience, and I slipped and fell. Yup! It was excruciatingly embarrassing. Especially when you’ve been made believe by god him/her self that you are blessed. It was painful, but I was smiling. You know you’d think that people would run to help you? No! They did not. Many asked if I was OK from a safe distance from me, but no one approached me (honestly! I would have done the same thing). They probably did not want to be part of the embarrassment.

I walked sporting with a ridiculously smiling face, for a person who fell, to my cubicle. In hindsight, I think I just should have showed some pain in my face. Why the hell was I trying to hide it?

So! People…. What was your most embarrassing moment in your life? How did you feel? Please tell me in the comments!

Sometimes I cry,

Sometimes I laugh,

Sometimes I’m shy,

Sometimes I’m not.

Sometimes I’m happy,

Other times, sappy.

I am complex…

I am just a human…

 

Confusion continues,

I am constricted and condemned,

They say I’m free…

Why don’t I feel that?

I want to break free…

What are these shackles?

That I don’t see…

Why do I never feel like I belong?

Why do I always search for a door to be gone?

They say, I am still young!

That I need to sing a happy song!

I pass,

I may seem crass,

But… No… No…

Sometimes I cry,

Sometimes I laugh,

Sometimes I’m shy,

Sometimes I’m not.

Sometimes I’m happy,

Other times, sappy.

I am complex…

Am just a human…

One easy way to raise your spirits, make you feel good, and be happy when you have a viral infection, not feel embarrassed when you’ve slipped and fallen down in front of a lot of people, or have hope when a vehicle splashes puddle water on your face, when the doctor suspects it might be dengue, when your maid is consistently absent, when you’re not sure the tap water is constant in your life, when your parents are disappointed in you, and when your job is unsatisfying:

Look at your salary-credit message again and again and again and again… till you feel all cozy and warm! 😀 (It always works!! Try it. I used to have a Lionardo Di Caprio poster when I was a teen; I’m thinking of making a salary-credit message poster).
