Day 25 : What NEXT?? (PART - 1)

One very fine day, I was born. And that made the day very auspicious... let's start by saying, for me at least...

Mom spoke to Dad, "What next??"
Dad replied, "Let's give it our best shot!!"

They agreed. I learnt how to walk and talk... I even talked while walking and I was talking so fast, I realized, I was even running!!

The first thing I asked Mom, still running, "What next??"
Mom replied, "I dunno. Go to school. Learn to read and write. Play a few games..."
I replied , "Great!! When does the fun part begin??"
Mom thought, Dream on kiddo!!

So, I ran to school (pre-primary) (of course!! My folks take 1 step and that was equal to 3 for me!!), the first day was all sweet talk. A new dress, a BIG bar of chocolate, new pencils, my own stuff. I felt like I ruled the world!! And then, The MATH LADY entered my life... :( She gave me work... I slogged hard... and finally finished it and looked up... it was afternoon!! But I thought, well, its all over now!! And then the Math lady commands, "What next??",
I said to myself, "What more COULD it be??"
She said, "Open your diaries and note down your homework"
She walked to me, showed me her cane and said, "I hear ONE more sound from your mouth and I'm going to whip your butt with this. :| I'm your MOMMY and DADDY in school"
And so, the suppression began...

After school, Dad came to pick me from pre-primary and I ran like an Ostrich and I was all excited. So I asked, "What next, Dad??"
Dad replied, "How about a sport to keep you fit??"
I replied, "Sure. Sounds great!! Which one??"
Dad replied, "Swimming!! :D"
Even before I could say anything... SPLOOSH... "...brrr... Pull me out.... slrrr... please!!... I want to live....uhhuhhu... more!! I'll drown to... brrjjhf... death here!!!"

After a while, I got used to this. I learned to add and subtract, multiply and divide numbers (the toughest thing yet, in my whole life!!) I learned how to swim. It was all going good. One day, I swam my best and asked Dad, "What next??"
He said, "You've come this far anyway... how about competing??"
Before I came to my senses, the Lady was instructing me on the starting block..."You have to swim two lengths of the pool... go touch and come back... you start on my GO..." and shouted... "TAKE YOUR MARK...GO"
And the race began, everyone was going, so I went too... I swam and I swam and swam... BANG... APPLAUSE...
They tell me I finished third!! Hmmm... not a bad start PK!!

To be continued...

Until later, see you when I see you... :)

I would really suggest you go and read this post by Divinediu, if you haven't already read it... Just read it. And Diu, thanks for sharing this one!! :)

PK - I didn't realize you were a swimmer. Lol, I obviously wasn't cued in on the picture :P

That's awesome. I must also admit that I'm a tad envious, I have always wanted to be an athletic type!! Next year, next year...

Later gater,

Waiting for the next, mr athlete.

Still running, right?

@Sydney : The picture says it all!! :)

@Divinediu : Actually, yes!!

@Dolphin : Really?? I never even liked those series of ads, so never bothered paying attention

Pranav Kumar V said...

And now the best part...

@HC/Harmy : Well, if you really want to know... I lost my virginity the day I re-read The Fountainhead, I guess I was 12 or 13. Life has never been the same ever since. Its beautiful than ever!! Now, talking of the Man that I am, no, I still have it. I don't believe in fucking around. I respect people around me, no matter who they are, includes you!! So, give yourself a break!! :)

Does this satiate the thirst of the shaman in you or do you want more healing??

See you when I see you... :)

'New blood joins this earth
and quickly he's subdued
through constant pain disgrace
the young boy learns their rules...'


Pranav Kumar V said...

@Jadis : AH!!! The song's already playing in my head... :D

What I've felt
What I've known
Never shined through in what I've shown
Never be
Never see
Won't see what might have been

Oh yeah, I completely see the link, but hey, Part II's yet to come!! :D

And I'm still banging my head... :):):)

See you when I see you... :)
