Ice croc rock

A piece of ice that looks like a crocodile on the prowl.

I really need to get out of the house.

And now, a song to go with it.

Reclusion

I make up words because I am a champion. Wait… reclusion is actually a real word. Anyway, there are a few problems associated with being a recluse. One of them is that people think you are rude. I don’t like phone calls. I don’t get many, but sometimes I avoid receiving calls from friends and family, and obviously, they don’t like it. It’s quite natural for people to think I’m being an asshole. That being said, texting is a very very good alternative though, except for the ‘read receipts’ and ‘blue ticks’, fuck that.

Stuck

I’m stuck at home with a fever. I photographed a spider. I am not going insane.

EFFECTS

I couldn’t do stand-up on Sunday because of the fever. I missed a free dinner today because of the fever. I took the day off because of the fever. I am not feeling depressed because of the fever. The fever is empowering me. I learned to play half of Bohemian Rhapsody because of the fever. I talked to my mom for more than 15 minutes because of the fever. I shaved because of the fever. I thought about reading a book because of the fever. After quickly dismissing that thought, I thought about my last relationship because of the fever. I posted twice today because of the fever. I ate rice today because of the fever.

Education needs help

I am now at a point in my life where the only thing I look forward to the most are the weekends. Today is a weekend, and I have a cold, and a fever, and I’ve got things to say.

On the 9th of September, a woman was murdered, thrown into a river by the natives of her village, who branded her a witch who had brought ‘misfortune’ to their village. She had a five-year-old kid who was also held ‘responsible’ for the ‘misfortune’. So the kid was also thrown in along with her mother.

Can education help us? If the people involved in this motherfuckery of a situation were educated, would this have happened? I advocate education every chance I get, but then people say the educated are as messed up as the uneducated. 

 

Thought provoking bikes

“Ambitious missions require disruptive thinking”. I read this on a biker’s backpack today, while stuck in traffic. I loved the quote, but I have a problem with it. I feel like dumb fucks will see this  quote, and take it as a sign from the universe, asking them to step on others to better their own lives. Moments after I read the quote, I saw the biker zooming through people walking on the footpath. But then, I remembered it’s Friday night. I get to eat takeout. I am happy again. 

Smile

I ran into a colleague at the metro station. Within a few minutes into the conversation he said something that I never expected to hear from a marketing executive. “I don’t have any friends”, he said, smiling. The ‘old me’ would have been like,”nice! so do I!”, but this time, I decided to keep it in. Instead, I gave him a pat on the back, and said something stupid like,”it’ll be okay”.
