Reception



Unlocked the door. Got inside. Removed shoes. Changed clothes. Gulped water. Looked around. Stand still. Opened gmail. 9 new mails. Not interested. Over to blog. No new comments. Disappointed. Switched to facebook. No. Bored of 'liking' status messages. Log out. Rediff news. Yuck… dirty politics and retarded system. Gtalk. Hate chatting. How about Spider Solitare? Not so early. Shutdown the computer. TV. 10 minutes, zapped from 1 to 356. DVD. F.r.i.e.n.d.s. For the 100th time, definitely unexciting. Flipped through the half read book. So depressing. Closed. Tea time. Switched the stove on. Lazy. Turned it off. But hungry. Opened the fridge. Empty. Next? Mobile phone. Ran through the contacts. No mood for a conversation. Looked around. Emptiness. Gloom. Just silence and its heartlessness! 


Husbands, wives, boy friends, girl friends, room mates, fianc├ęs & friends! Planning to attend a late night meeting to discuss not-so-important strategies with folks in the US or Israel or UK or where ever? Think again and set your priorities!

Hey,be cool.There is freedom of speech.
I liked it honestly. I live alone most of the time ,except when my family joins me for few months at a time. My usual responses are almost the same. Sometimes I don,t even open the mails,lest I should reply. Cooking..No..too lazy.
You are full of imagination and innovation.Keep on writing. Cheers !

I've felt loneliness like this. When TV, internet or mobile doesn't excite anymore. When the mood at the moment secludes ourselves from friends. When we want 2 be alone, but still crave for company. Ive really felt this at a point in my life...and I can clearly understand how it kills the fun person in you and me.
Revive...and come back!1

Deepak said...

It is just momentary.. gloom is always followed by brightness.

blunt edges said...

LOL...I so know that feeling! When I have like a 100 options, but not a single one interests me! If this was FB, I would have "liked" it :D

boredom happens when the mind is disconnected from our inner self... and goes searching elsewhere for food

@ blunt edges - yeah... 'liking'is the easiest way to acknowledge in this cut-copy-paste era, rite?

Too lazy to do anything sometimes!
