The deal

“It is the age of limited time offers , the flashy deals.. How will you find meaning to your life and relationships if you keep running behind one thing after another ?” , Said my grandmother, obviously throwing that question at me specifically.

“You do realize you are asking me to let go of my career here to be with the guy who has decided to chase his dreams thousand miles away from me” , I complained in even higher pitch.

“I am asking if you want to chance a life with the guy who has stood with you when you wanted to flee or want to keep running like these useless sales at the mall ! Limited time offer, my dear” , she said with a finality and that sealed the decision for me.

Walk of shame ..

Bestie : Why are you walking like this ?
Me : like what ?
B : Umm.. like different ..
M *obviously panicking* : different .. ha ha .. no , no , not at all.
B: Nopes, I know your walk. This is not you. Oh my god , did you ?
M *pretending hard to ignore*
B: Oh yes , you did. You did it again.
M: I did nothing.
B : What’s the count this time ? How was it , tell now !
M *giving up* : I lost a drunk bet for 100 squats. I can’t wait to get my thighs back to normal now.
B: Don’t. I like your slow walk. I have to run in my heels otherwise to catch up !
M: You are a sadist, you know !
