Too much to handle, sometimes

When I had been home for Diwali holidays, I had some fun times with my nieces. Especially my second niece (almost 4 years), who is a terror of our household. She is smart, funny and unmanageable. One day, she was not letting her sister do her homework and was pestering her, so I decided to take her out for a drive. Since it was raining cats and dogs and had gotten pretty cold outside, I asked her to wear a jacket. The one she wore was a little large for her size…and she was fully covered in it. (She did look a little funny 🙂 but couldn’t let her know otherwise she wouldnt wear that) She also had a monkey cap (aka balaclava) on. Once she was ready, she checked herself in the mirror and asked , if she looked too much like a monkey. I was holding my laughter and told her that she looked just fine and if she wants a drive, she should hurry. When we parked and started walking around the shops she started talking non-stop (which is her usual mode nowadays) and a couple of people passing by saw her and smiled at her. She looked at a few and then looked at me and said, ‘those people are laughing at me , arent they ? I do look like a monkey…dont I’ I told her that it is just her  imagination and to take her mind out of her attire, took her to a near by shop for her to choose a chocolate of her choice. And she ended up taking two Dairy Milk chocolates and refused to share it with me. Guess she wanted to make up for her ordeal related to her attire.

Two years and counting

How quickly the time flies. It feels like I just started and I am here in WordPress, now with two years behind me. Two years already? Phew! I have been very happy, if we can exclude the latest issue with the pingbacks and all. I tried and couldn’t hold my interest in any other social media (I haven’t tried Facebook yet, and even thinking of it feels like a lot of work) or may be I am just a one-(social)media woman. When compared to my blogspot, where I didn’t make any external connections, I have made considerable amount of connections here in WP (that amount not being too many, but still very considerable considering my ability to do so – shucks…did that come out right ? ). I like it here. I am comfortable being here. I am more ‘me’ even though I blog with a mask, but that is just to hide my face and not my character. I don’t say some of the atrocious things I say in real life, and I have no clue why I do that, may be I have the verbal diarrhea which is controlled because typing takes more time than speaking them and also may be I can edit it later. I have become more accepting and understanding about a lot of things and also know what I am actually capable of. And my grammar really sucks. But inspite of all that, being accepted and appreciated has also made me a little more confident in myself. So its a win-win. (Yes those ‘visits’, ‘likes’, ‘comments’ makes me really very happy 🙂 ) And with the blogs I follow, which are varied in their content, I always find my daily dose of fun, encouragement, information, awe, smile and news. Thank you all for the visits, the encouragement, the friends I have made here, my friends who have finally made it here, the posts that make me think, to feel, to analyze, to laugh, to those silent readers, the regular visitors, to all those who have helped me directly and indirectly, each and every one of you who land here in my small small world, welcome and thank you for giving my blog a chance.


Thank you!
