I love my umbrella. Do you love yours?


It's pouring outside and my big red umbrella is asleep...

I was in an empty train this morning, real early. My headphones were plugged in. There wasn't any music playing. I was secretly and very very shamelessly listening to these two junior college girls discuss their boyfriend problems. About half an hour later the serious discussion ends. They look at the station outside. And, like someone remote-controlled them, out of nowhere, both them girls start acting lesbian. Nibbling at each other's ears, giggling, murmuring sweet nothings and all that jazz? I am no homophobe, but I have a thing against PDA. Cheap PDA that too. Scandalized I was first thing in the morning. But wasted that I am, I sat through their session while all other aunties ran in this and that direction :P

The only reason I listen to music, and maybe sometimes talk about it, is because am totally awed by the ease with which these people come up with lyrics. Isn't it strange? Some of them are just beautiful. Beautiful. I wonder how...I wonder why...Yesterday you told me about the blue blue sky...

Only I want people and I want things when I listen to such beautiful tracks. I want.

Right now, I think life is all set and sorted out! Nothing to do, nothing to undo. The joy! it's almost like every night when I crash, the exhaustion and the unintelligent-cy feeling takes a backseat.

The unintelligent feeling comes back when I'm in Sociology class :/

I wish I could read minds...Nothing else, but for me to read minds. Read the mind of someone miles and miles and miles away from me.I really wish to. Maybe for a day or two? I want to be God. Maybe for a day or two...I want to be 'the chosen one'...

12 cows believe I'm awesome. Do you?:

A mind or twoo..?

That is just bizarre behaviour no? I don't like PDA either. It makes me sound all loserish but I don't :/ Another brilliant eavesdropping tactic? Pretend you're reading/sending texts. I did love nice big purple polka dotted umbrella but now it's broken so I don't love it so much.

Shreya said...

the texting thing works...but why waste your phones battery? :P

trust me, i'v tried all methods out and the best is the headphone one :P

Shreya said...
