“It is not what it looks like”, he said. He met her eyes and saw a flicker of deliberation.

“What do you mean?”, asked Mira shifting through the day’s mail. She had handled five emergency cases in the hospital today and was dead tired to decode Sid’s mysterious words.

“Ashima helped me, that’s all”.

“You were bent on one knee and proposing to her in front of all the interns out there, kindly explain under what category of help does it come?”

Sid could here the storm building up inside her and waited for the explosion. The thunderstorm started again and Mira went to close the windows. When she turned back, she saw Sid in the same posture as she had seen in the morning.

“Is this some kind of joke?”, she asked exasperatedly.

“Not unless you want it to be”. That rogue grin of his which quickened her pulse was back.

“There is a girl whom I love to the moon and back. I want to spend the rest of my life with her. What you saw was just a trial run, or a test, to check how I will fare when the time is right, and the time is now, when the girl I love is in front of me, albeit, staring like a ghost”

Mira was speechless.

“You do not like the ring? I thought you liked emerald. We can change it, no issues, I have the warranty card with me”, Sid blabbered on nervously.

“A stone?”

“Pure and uncut. 18k”, he said proudly.

“Sid, there is a stone staring at me, are you giving me this to scare the pigeons away?”

Bewildered, Sid looked inside the jewelry box he was holding.

Playing Volleyball

So today I have decided to play volleyball with myself. I am asking as well as answering the questions, so all my mind voice only ok.

List all the ingredients which went into making the most interesting dish you ate today.

What is the current wallpaper of your laptop/phone/tablet?

On the laptop it is lots of colorful feathers, on my phone it is a picture of Moo with an innocent expression, which usually means she has gulped down something from the floor which has escaped our eyes.

How do you wear your hair when at home?

Like a crow’s nest

When you visit any restaurant, what is the first thing you search for, in the menu?

The starters

What is the advertisement from your childhood that you recall even today.

Nirma Super.

The sophisticated lady wearing white going to the supermarket and asking for Nirma Super from the shopkeeper, I loved the dialogues between the two.

Have you implemented a beauty tip/hack which you were told to, and been mortified by the results?

I applied lemon juice on acne areas to remove the dark spots. It did nothing apart from burning my skin for hours 😥

At your home, where do the newspapers find themselves to be the most useful?

To wrap the leafy greens in the kitchen. To wrap Moo’s diapers.

During a visit to any mall, what do you find yourself searching first?

Restroom

This tag is over now. Explain your state of mind.

My mind is shouting now, it is tired of playing volleyball with itself 😛

Tag along!

This tag is solely dedicated to BM 🙂 She oh so sweetly asked her readers to tag her so that she gets material for the Blogging Marathon. We are all done with the ever famous elevens tag, book tag, year end review tag, husband tag and so and so. So here is me inviting you for the brand new segment of ‘Volleyball with Visha’.
