Sitting at my desk….its 5:24 p.m.

 Got my mind on an open highway…..a convertible with the top rolled back….air blowing through my hair….past me….

Hands on the wheel….cruise control on…..steady 100 kmph…..some nice music on….maybe afterglow…..going absolutely nowhere.

“Touch me and i will follow, in your afterglow

heal me from all this sorrow, as i let you go.”

I need a holiday….and i will soon be on one.

Got this masterpiece from Bawi. Laughed my head off and figured it was one of the gazillion worth sharing with ye all. Thanks Bawi! 

 A senior citizen drove his brand new BMW Z3 convertible out of the car salesroom. Taking off down the motorway, he floored it to 90 mph, enjoying the wind blowing through what little hair he had left. 
 

“Amazing!” he thought as he flew down the M40, enjoying pushing the pedal to the metal even more.
 
Looking in his rear view mirror, he saw a police car behind him, blue lights flashing and siren blaring.
 
“I can get away from him – no problem!” thought the elderly nutcase as he floored it to 110mph, then 120, then 130mph.
 
Suddenly, he thought, “What on earth am I doing? I’m too old for this nonsense!”
 
So he pulled over to the side of the road and waited for the police car to catch up with him. Pulling in behind him, the police officer walked up to the driver’s side of the BMW, looked at his watch and said, “Sir, my shift ends in 10 minutes. Today is Friday and I’m taking off for the weekend. If you can give me a reason why you were speeding that I’ve never heard before, I’ll let you go.”

The man, looked very seriously at the policeman, and replied, “Years ago, my wife ran off with a policeman. I thought you were bringing her back.”
“Have a good weekend, Sir,” said the policeman.

Smile!

A couple was celebrating their golden wedding anniversary. Their domestic tranquility had long been the talk of the town. “What a peaceful & loving couple!” A local newspaper reporter was inquiring as to the secret of their long and happy marriage.

“Well, it dates back to our honeymoon,” explained the man. “We visited the Grand Canyon and took a trip down to the bottom on the canyon by horse. We hadn’t gone too far when my wife’s horse stumbled. My wife quietly said, ‘That’s Once’.”

“We proceeded a little further and the horse stumbled again. Once more my wife quietly said, ‘That’s twice.’ “We hadn’t gone a half-mile when the horse stumbled the third time. My wife quietly removed a revolver from her purse and shot the horse dead.

“I started an angry protest over her treatment to the horse. And while I was Shouting; she looked at me, and quietly said, ‘That’s once’ ……………and we lived happily ever after.”

Friday morning….and the usual calm that prevails on the onset of the weekend is conspicuously absent. Tomorrow is a Court working day.

Cant really complain with the barrage (can you call it ANYTHING else) of public holidays that we’ve been at the receiving end of and soon, like in another two weeks, we close for the summer vacations. Now thats the life na?

One whole month off…just like we got in school…..and college….only those extreme workaholics or showaholics work at this time. I dont classify as either.

I plan on taking my usual break and spending some time in the big apple. Wanna go take a book, a sandwich and some refreshing beverage and sit in Central Park….Wanna walk down 42nd…..to Times Square….and soak in the madness of people running to go nowhere.

For whilst i am in NYC, i learn to truly appreciate what Mumbai is all about…..

Insanity versus love

A rather sad incident transpired at the High Court a couple of days ago. A guy decided to attempt suicide, over a woman!!! (am i the only one who thinks this reason is over-rated?)

Ok ok….serious now…..

This guy, all of 29 years old, fell in love with a 18 year old girl……yup…..he – 29 , she -18…..he madly in love, she says nothing of the sort. Hmmm…..kinda hard to make that mistake na…meaning, its not that hard to tell whether a girl is as fida over you and you are over her!!!

Anyway, as it transpires…..he likes, sorry, LOVES her and wants to spend the rest of his life with her. Allegedly abducts her and brings her to another city where, according to her, she is kept in a locked room and beaten daily (thats apparently a sign of affection in India!….wonder where we get these wife/woman-beating tendencies from!!!)

According to him, she came on her own free will and now its her parents who are inflicting tremendous pressure on her to return to them…..she’s young and gullible and is falling prey to such emotional blackmail.

So now, matter comes up in the High Court where they apparently see each other after a while….and she informs him that she intends on telling the Court that she doesnt wanna return to him.

Our man decides that life, as he knows it, isn’t worth living without her. So he slits his wrist. Thats right, he slits his wrist outside the Courtroom in the High Court premises. Luckily for him, enough people were around (and we are so quick to abuse crowded courts na!!!) who saw what happened and got him medical help immediately.

The guy survives and is brought before the Judges who were quick to try and help him…..and even suggested a conciliation so as to withdraw controverted allegations thrown by both camps at each other.

1. What i cant figure out is, why in God’s name would a man wanna kill himself over a girl?

2. How in God’s name did he get a razor blade into the High Court – and also manage to USE it???….i mean, it IS a high security zone….metal detectors, frisking et all!…..Raises a question in my mind!!!

There is obviously a lot more to this than meets the eye and sadly, it almost cost a man his life. There aren’t many things more valuable than a life. And to be ready to throw away your own, for the sake of love, is something that is rather unfortunate.

“To have loved and lost is better than to have not loved at all.”

Hopefully Romeo will find his Juliet soon.
