Like a sunflower, that follows every movement of the sun. So I turn towards you, to follow you, my Lord.
Me: I was thinking.....
Uncle: Started thinking early in the morning?
Me: I was thinking....
Me: I should be going on a pilgrimage again. Like I went last time.
Uncle: Last time you drove me crazy by going alone. I was worried till you returned home. Please drop the idea.
Me: Even this time I will return safe. God will protect me.
Uncle: My ass! Don't aggravate me now. If I had not put you in the right train and asked my nephew to pick you up from the railway station and take care of your accommodation there, you would never return home safe.
Me: You mean I would have got lost if you hadn't helped.
Me: Don't treat me like a kid. I don't lik...
Uncle: In my younger days........
Me: I don't really want to know what happened in your younger days. Pause.. pause.. pause.
Uncle: Listen to me.
Me: Want me to go on strike again? I don't wish to violate the terms of our ceasefire agreement.
Uncle: Okay. I won't tell you what happened then?
Me: I heard you had quite a lot of girl friends in your younger days. True?
Uncle: Did I hear you say you're not interested in knowing what happened in my younger days?
Uncle: You seem to be really happy today. That's wonderful. It's going to rain!
Me: That's because.. I managed to escape from trouble, for once.
Uncle: You invite trouble always. Must never trouble trouble until trouble ...
Before asking me why I have turned so arrogant, ask yourself why you took advantage of my kindness.

Learning to be diplomatic
This has never been easy for me because I'm a bitch who never thinks twice before saying.. " Go to hell". This attitude of mine has led me into serious trouble always. That's the only reason I'm never happy. I wouldn't know how's life abroad but in India, it's highly impossible to ask someone "go to hell" and get away with it. They'll make sure they screw your happiness every minute, every hour and for 356 days a year.
So I finally decided to learn a little diplomacy in order to save myself from people who can stoop to any level and trouble others. I am finding peace that way. I'm able to keep people at bay. It's difficult though. I am doing it against my conscien...
I'm happy happy happy happy happy happy happy happy right now. Oh I rarely find a reason to be happy.😊😊😊😊😊

Friend: Our plight is pathetic, Ann. We are helpless. I feel sorry for you. This is not what you deserve.
Me: You don't deserve this as well.
Friend: Forget about me. I don't have the eligibility to teach. I just hold a degree and nothing more.
Me: But you're communication skills are definitely far better than most others. So you don't have to worry about not being eligible. People can buy certificates nowadays. Not a great deal. You have the skill. That's what matters. Be glad!
Friend: You have the ability and eligibility. You definitely don't deserve to be here. Why don't you move abroad? There's no future for people like you here. I feel very sorry for you.
Me: Thanks for the concern....
The cold war between us is finally over. I'm okay with the terms and conditions of the ceasefire agreement. We always agree to disagree yet vibe with each other. I'm very lucky to have you in my life because you're the only one who knows me inside out. I know we can't stay mad at each other for more than two weeks. We look for ways to compromise. Lol. I love you a little more than you love me. Stay blessed!
Hello Lettrs Community:D
It’s been quite some time since I’ve written! You dear ones haven’t ever escaped my heart, though! I’m grateful for those of you who use Twitter!! Im always thrilled to hear from you, and I tremendously enjoy getting to know you. It seems, despite our geographical distances, we all do go through the same trials and triumphs!
I have been well, overwhelmingly emotional! As an Empath, I’ve connected (in the spiritual realm) on this level with my boyfriend! It’s been an unpredictable and exciting journey! My girls have grown and are running around being the silly loud kids they’re supposed to be at their ages! Mommy just gives herself times out to ...
Day after tomorrow marks dad's tenth death anniversary. If he was alive, my conversation with him almost every evening would have been something like this.
Me: * immersed in doing my accountancy homework. Not bothered about how many of us exist at home, who is at home and who has gone out to attend a party*
Dad: * walking towards my room*
Me: * not aware someone's standing before me and asking me a question*
Dad (for the second time): My girl, where is mom?
Me: I don't know, dad. She must be around.
Dad: No. She isn't . Your siblings are not home as well. Where are they?
Me: I don't know, dad. They never told me where they were going. Just have look in the backyard. You might find them...
Uncle: I don't understand why you do things I hate.
Me: * sitting on the floor in shabby clothes and making paper boats*
Uncle: Why do you do this? Get up from there and sit on the sofa.
Me: I will not. I like sitting on the floor.
Uncle: You look like you've not had a bath since one week.
Uncle: Not ashamed of yourself?
Me: When people who compel me to work at a shitty place are not ashamed of themselves, why should I be ashamed I'll have my bath when I feel like.
Uncle: Something is seriously wrong with you. I'm watching your behaviour since the past few weeks. You're getting on my nerves everyday.
Uncle: You're smelling like a dirty pig.
When it comes to you, words get stuck on the roof of my mouth. Happy Birthday!
One dishonest friend at workplace is enough to turn your life upside down.

Me: Good morning.
Uncle: Good morning. You're up this early? Maybe because you went to bed early.
Me: I think so.
Uncle: I repeat what I said last evening. You should learn to control your temper. You'll step into deep shit if you use such words at workplace. Just ignore those who trouble you.
Me: In that case I have to ignore almost everyone. I only like my students.
Uncle: Please do that. You just do your work. Just think that others don't exist to you.
Me: How will I coordinate activities if I think nobody exists to me?
Uncle: Speak when required. I'm not asking you to keep your mouth shut throughout the day.
Me: What do you think I do? I speak only ...
Uncle: What happened? Why are you sad?
Me: Same shit.
Uncle: Learn to ignore. You'll be fine.
Me: Don't aggravate me by saying that. I'm sure if you were to be in my place, you would have resigned your job immediately and you would do it after slapping all of them. Don't give me free advice.
Uncle: Oh you don't know anything. When I was the managing director. .......
Me: Bloody hell! When you were the managing director of that duck in company, you had the support of the directors, so you managed to put your foot down and make everyone listen to you. I've got none. I'm an orphan. I'm being taken for granted by every asshole of this bloody institute.
Uncle: You don't know how to handl...
Probably everything I speak right now will make sense after I'm dead and gone.

Lying down inside the golden cage, she began penning her reminiscences before they faded from the vortex of her aging mind, recalling every scene that was essential to complete the tale untold, beginning from how she once lived like a wild flower that bloomed among weeds in the backyard of an old and abandoned building to how she was finally drawn to the cage and imprisoned in the name of protection.

Ex colleague: Hey, how's you?
Me: I'm still alive. How's that you thought of me after six months?
Ex colleague: Lol. Just wanted to share the good news with you.
Me: What is it? Who did you manage to hoodwink this time?
Ex colleague: You can never think anything good about me, right?
Me: Lol. You know yourself better. Tell me what is it?
Ex colleague: My wife gave birth to a baby girl.
Me: That's a great news. Now you're half way to your grave. Happy time looking after the kid.
Ex colleague: Lol you will never change. You're still the same.
Ex colleague: Do you know why I shared this good news with you first?
Me: Why? Because you want me also to get married and ma...
Sometimes you gotta be a little selfish. Whenever my friend Zaid comes home, he eats up all my chocolates. He lays his hands on everything that catches his attention. Sometimes, I don't even get a single chocolate or cookie for myself. I can't even say "NO" to him because he's a kid. Moreover, he'll go and tell his mom that I never shared sweets and cookies with him and she'll be like... " Why did you do that to my son? Blah blah blah!" I tried telling him that he can't be eating up all of them. But he doesn't seem to listen.
So I decided to hide my sweets and cookies. I hid them somewhere where even God can't spot them. I only wish I don't forget where I hid them. Oh my fate!

Uncle: He was on the verge of popping off. He survived. I knew he will. Sherwoods are fighters. We don't give in that easy. Look at me. I survived a massive heart attack.
Me: I know. You're a fighter.
Uncle: You are one too. You survived heartaches. I survived heart attacks. Lol.
Me: Lol. Yeah. How long do you think you'll live for? I'm preparing myself to lose you. I don't want depression to kill me after you reach your grave. You know what happened after dad passed away, right? I don't want that to happen.
Uncle: Are you waiting for me to die?
Me: haha. No. Jokes aside, we both know what happened when dad passed way. I had you by my side to hold me when I collapsed. If you're gone, ...
Learning to smile wholeheartedly. Learning to be happy and to make my happiness a priority. I was brought into this world with a purpose. I might know what exactly it is right now but I have to fulfil it before I leave this world. Each day I wake up and try to love myself a little more than I did yesterday.❤

Don't play the fool with me. I'll 🔪 you. I was supposed to be at my workplace by now. You left me at 3:30 am and brought me back to my bed at 5:30 am. It's 9:30 am now. How am I going to reach college by 10:30? You've left me with just an hour to shit, have a bath, dress up and rush to my workplace. I hate you.

Far, a long, long way to run
When the demons within me were fighting their way out, I wish you stayed with me, holding me in your arms, helping me fight the scariest battles of my life. When my actions spoke louder than my words, I wish you sensed that I was battling hard to soothe my tormented soul. I wish you stayed with me at the time I needed you the most. Now that I've learnt to hold myself in troubled times, I don't think I'll ever need anyone's arms at hold me at my worst.

Me: Hello. Good morning, old man.
Uncle: I nearly got a heart attack. Why are you phoning me up at 3:30 am? Are you alright?
Me: haha. I'm alright. I got up early.
Uncle: Too early. What are you upto?
Me: I'm eating.
Uncle: haha. If I'm not wrong, you ate well last night. How is that you felt hungry at 3:30 in the morning?
Me: Ask my stomach.
Uncle: That's fine. Why do you punish me by waking me up so early?
Me: Shall I come home? I feel like watching you play guitar. I'm having Christmas vibes in the morning. Sing Carols for me.
Uncle: Don't be acting stupid for God and heaven's sake. Eat and go back to sleep.
Me: I'm disappointed!

Uncle 1: I brought some sweets for you, Ann. Grab them quick.
Uncle 2: I brought some sweets for you as well. Your favourite!
Me: * grabbing all of them*
Uncle 1: She won't eat them now. She's full. She's just eaten something and filled her tummy.
Uncle 2: She will eat them. I know her appetite better!
Uncle 1: No. She won't. I have known since she was born. She won't eat them right now.
Uncle 2: Whatever! Let's see who is right.
Me: * watching the two old men argue over such a silly matter*
Uncle 2: Ann, You wanna eat them right now?
Me: My mind says, "eat eat". My heart says.. "Eat later because your tummy is full". I don't know what to do.

Remembering my ex boyfriend 🙊
Him: I can't marry you. I can adopt you though. You're a kid!
Me: What an insult? What the hell are you talking?
Him: I'm speaking the truth, kiddo!
Me: Why so?
Him: Because you are too immature to be my wife.
Me: How do you expect your wife to be?
Him: I mean.. she should be independent, strong and must be responsible. She should be a perfect home maker. You don't know anything.
Me:I will learn to be so.
Him: hehe. You're a kid. I don't think you'll ever grow up.
Me: Don't say that.
Him: I would love to adopt you. I'm very fond of you. I accept you as my girlfriend but marrying you .. No. You're still a kid.
Me: I hate you. Go marry someone else.
Little Zaid: Sis, I think it's high time you have the GPS installed on your two wheeler.

Little Zaid: I have to keep track of you. In case anything happens to you on the road or any policeman tries to harass you, I'll get to know and will reach the spot immediately.
Me: hahaha. Okay. What will you do after reaching the spot?
Little Zaid: I'll bash him up. I know karate.
Me: I see. Okay. I'll get it installed.
Little Zaid: That's like a good girl.
Me: Awww I love you, pumpkin. I love you a little less than I love uncle. He's always my first love.
Little Zaid: Because he gives you chocolates?
Me: Nah! Because nobody loves him for his arrogance and bad temperament. ...
