So, Where are you at?

Following takes place at my work:

5.30 PM
I call Shekar: "So what time will you be getting out of work"
Shekar: another 10 minutes.

6.00 PM
Shekar has not come to pick me up yet. (We have started car pooling recently so conserve energy). So I work away getting all mad at Shekar as he still hasn't called to mention he will be late.

6.15 PM
I'm really mad, he still hasn't called or come by.

Following takes place at my home:

6.10 PM
Shekar pulls into the parking, and looks around. This is something we both do. When we park our car, we look if the other person is home. So Shekar sees my car, which means I'm home. He goes home, no lights are turned on, and the bedroom door is closed.

He assumes I'm in the bedroom and he goes turns the TV on, hangs around the living room for a while and still not hearing anything from he, he comes into the bedroom and I'm not there.

There have been instances, where I'll be on my cell phone and since the reception at my home sucks I just stay in the car and talk, so he walks over to my car and I'm not there either.

6.30PM At home
He is really mad because I came home and went somewhere and did not tell him.

6.30PM At work
I'm really mad that Shekar is late and hasn't called to tell me that he is running late My Cell phone rings I see its Shekar and picks up the phone with a furious "hello" Shekar on the other end, replies with more furious "Hello, where are you?"
Me: What do you mean where am I, I'm work, where else can I be?
Shekar: HAHAHAHA... did I drop you off at work today?
Me: You went home with out picking me up?
Shekar: I'll be right there.

Finally got home around 7.00PM.... all this for my need to save energy

As most of you would know, I have an Older sister, Veena who is very very naughty (even till this day). So she plays pranks on me very frequently and I rarely get to pay her back.

Then there was this day.

We both were sitting on my bed and arguing over something ( I don't even remember what it was now). She wanted something that I had and I wouldn't give it to her. I remember holding it really tight and close towards my body and Veena trying to snatch it.

After few minutes of fighting, we had strict rules about fighting:
- No pulling hair as she had nice long hair and I had short hair, so I had an advantage
- No scratching each other's faces - We girls had to look pretty
- No matter what happened no complaining to parents

So we were fighting by our rules and then finally Veena's nails scratched my eye. I felt this burning sensation and I covered my eye and yelled out "My eye My eye."

Veena stopped what ever she was doing, and made my take my hand off my eye. I told her that it was hurting. She is a very caring sister and she ran to get some cold water to rinse my eye. She came back with some water and I was still sitting with my hand covering my eyes.

She finally made me move my hand and yelled "I can not see, Oh my god I can not see with this eye."

Veena sat there speechless all teary eyed and screaming "Are you sure?". "Wash your eyes again". I couldn't hold my self anymore, I burst out laughing I was kidding, I can see well.

Well, I almost got killed that day.

For all those worried souls, my sclera (the white part of my eye) got scratched and I had a red mark on it for a week. But the joy that little red scratch brought me was just priceless.

Even today I call Veena once in a while and yell over the phone, "I can not see, OMG I can not see"

Movie Update:

  • Omakara - Was kind of slow, I liked it, even though I had read Othello and seen the Malayalam version.
  • Pirates of the Caribbean - Dead man's Chest- was a nice watch. Towards the end, left so many thing unfinished that you know a sequel is coming soon.
  • Running scared - Very nice movie, but now for the week hearted, lot of bloodshed, lot of cursing
I know I saw a lot more movies, don't seem to recall them though :(
