I am late for fun this week. Not my fault – I was all set but then this happened:-
Err well not exactly but I was very nearly stranded at the airport but for some good karma 😀
As you may have guessed I have been traveling and came across the most wonderful contraption
Isn’t that cool? Actually I feel like this with my kindle reader – carry my entire library wherever I go. Dreams do come true! Anyway I am back and happy to report that the smog situation is much much better. Although you wouldnt think it to look at this couple
Is this an example of one man’s poison another man’s kiss? Because without the smog they wouldn’t have been able to snog so freely 😀
Okay that’s it from me this week people – have a super week.
Hope you found something that you enjoyed – none of which are mine by the way. I found them on the internet and am just keeping the fun going.
And do let me know your favorite – or better still post your own and leave me a link I will be along in just a bit.
It was dark when she let herself into her new apartment. Switching on the lights she gazed around delightedly.
The room was exactly as she had left it. The upturned heels, the dupatta* trailing on the floor, a half-opened book, the banana peel.
She was truly free of that obnoxious odious nitpicking man!
Humming, she threw open the windows.
Neither a ‘garbage dump’ nor a ‘pigsty’ she thought as she put out the trash.
A gush of wind slammed the door shut.
Locked out without her phone!
Sweat broke out on her brow.
She couldn’t recollect any phone number.
Except for his.
*dupatta: a long scarf usually of cotton or silk.

Today has been one long long day and it is just Monday – I am no mood for jokes or any sort of fun 😦 And I found the right sorta company – the anti-joke chicken. Exactly what I was looking for – seriously.
Exactly 😀 So got it? Okay this one is easy – no cheating huh
I got this one!
Pretty obvious eh 😀
This is cheating!
I saved the best one (my favorite) for the last – a news article that I read earlier this week. Okay I dont understand much of football but imagine this scene – two teams are playing and no goal is scored in the first 120 minutes.
Pretty frustrating right?
But natural to want to find a scapegoat, somebody to blame…
“It is customary to bring prospective grooms here to pay obeisance.” She said.
He folded his hands and bowed.
“The tree has supernatural powers.” Her voice dropped to a whisper. “She turns evil grooms turn into stones.”
“Really?” He snorted.
“That stone on the far right? That’s my last suitor.”
“Ask Granny about that stone in the middle. He had his eyes on her property.”
“You’re pulling my leg.”
“When Radha’s husband demanded dowry, she brought him here.” She pointed.
“Why are you worried?” she snuggled up to him.
Another fool after her millions she snickered.
I have two submissions this to week’s Friday Fictioneer’s – sorry I couldn’t resist 🙂 The other one is here but they aren’t interlinked.

“Why do you ritualistically put in some extra rice grains and then put back some in the container?”
“Traditionally we cook a little extra for an unexpected guest and make sure to keep some for tomorrow.”
“As if that tiny bit will help!” I scoffed. “Superstitious nonsense.”
“No harm done…”
“My cook’s son lost his job. There’s an opening for a driver but she refused.”
“The astrologer advised against it.”
I scrolled down for the Friday Fictioneer photo.
Damn. Where could I spot a flying crow at night?
Note: For the uninitiated, myna birds are very powerful and accurate fore-tellers.
One for sorrow (which can be dispelled if you spot a flying crow)
Flying one for success
Two for joy
Three for letter
Four for boy
Five for gift
I have no idea where this originated from but it is 100 % true especially the one for sorrow. Although I’m not sure if photos count 😉 Psst just in case you can’t find a flying crow, make a circle with your forefinger and thumb and cut (open it) with something (thrice!). 😀
Well I confessed mine 😛 What’s yours?
