Anyway, this post is the result of the stupendous failure of Plan A , that was thought of a couple of months ago. You know, the whole, let’s find out the best way to deal with the situation idea? Yeah, that. Didn’t work. I am not sure how much I expected it to, but seriously, this level of failure, was a shock to me too.
Yeah, so back to the title, have you heard this song? If not, you might find it a tad funny. And if you have, you will definitely find it funny. It is a funny song, and John Abraham looks seriously funny (oxymoron alert, in fact if you see John, you might have a moron alert too . Haha, I am so hilarious, I know), while doing the ‘Fly-fly’ bit. Anyway, so my latest theory, Anyway, so I am back on track doing what I vehemently opposed in Plan A? Yes, I am going to ask myself precisely what the song asks, and then go ahead, and spot my silver lining, or one silver spot, or at least, one relatively less dark bit in my super dark cloud.
– The long commute torture
My point is, if not for the commute, and the route, I would not know of every sale in town would I? I mean, I end up spending enough time stuck in traffic to actually look through the windows and even select what I should buy for myself. I chose a pair of high-heeled pumps from Woodland like that. Sad, I could not read the price tag, or it would have saved us the drive to the place.
– Dislike for certain species at work
Ok, these are obviously the same breed that I mentioned in my Plan A. So, they exist. So, they cannot be avoided. So, I have no choice but to see them all the time. And that, really, really is not good for me, or my nerves, or in general for my health or for the health of those around me. So, what do we do? This one is simple, think about it. If not for these people, we would so totally run out of things to complain and discuss about during lunch/coffee breaks! The best times at work, these would be totally lifeless if all was happy and rosy and pretty! Imagine smiling all the time, talking in sweet tones, no hyper reactions, no nicknames, no hush-hush conversations, and that is so very bleh.
– The constant body pain
Yeah yeah, the pain from all the gymming. In my gym post, someone mentioned the pain never goes, because we push ourselves more and more, and seriously, I didn’t believe it then. Right now, I could not agree more. I mean, I am not happy about it, but it is true. So what is so good about the pain, especially when the weighing scale pin stands still and refuses to budge? I am thinking. I am thinking while typing. And after 5 minutes of deep thought, the only positive thing about the pain I could come up with is, that you no longer feel the pain from small bumps, slips, etc, which are like a norm in my life. You’re always in so much pain, that these things, well, disappear under the blanket of the over-all pain. Good enough?
– The bad bad weather
Let me start by saying that never in my life did I expect to call grey, cloudy, rainy weather bad. Bad-bad, that’s twice as bad (not Bad minus bad = zero, in case you were confused). But right now, I am only worried that this rain is some sorta preview to the 2012 disaster. But what is good about it? Ok, one, electricity bills are low, no need for air-conditioning, and there are always the power cuts to break even. Ok, and forced two would be, it kinda motivates me to go to gym, because it usually rains around the time the 5:45 bus leaves, and that means major traffic jam, so I am all like, ‘good thing I am going to the gym, it will get better when I step out at 7’. Whether it works or not is another story, but I end up going to the gym, so.
– The closing of Subway at office
I am a Sub sandwich maniac. When I had just started working, I used to live at this place which had a Subway outlet between the drop point and the house. So I would pick a sandwich and a cookie, once in a while. However, the usage of ‘once in a while’ was proved to be incorrect in the context the day the counter opened in our office. The guy at the stall said, ‘Veggie delite, with cheese, mayo & mustard, and no onions? Oh, and a double chocolate chip cookie?’’ with a smile as soon as he spotted me. Point to note, I moved from that house 4 years ago. Anyway, so they closed the counter, It hurts, because that is the one healthy (do NOT bring up the cheese and mayo, I swear) thing I love. And the good thing about it is, hmmm, well, it reminded me to put this incident up on my blog, I had totally forgotten about it. Yes, that’s the best thing about it.
– The Dude’s travel
Oh, well, accept it, there is nothing good about this one. No, even the vacation doesn’t justify it. It sucks, period. And I totally am allowed to wallow in self-pity for this one.
That being said, I will repeat that the common awesome thing about all the cry-worthy things in my life, is the fact that it gives me so much to think about, and then so much more to put on the blog too. It is not just like that the ‘Whiney-me’’ tag shows in such a large font on the sidebar. So, I guess, I might as well enjoy the misery while it lasts?
*CB, that translates to “Why, why do we cry so much?” Kinda obvious, I know but I like the star and reference thing, so.
