Once upon a lazy saturday….

 K has gone to India for a couple of weeks. I usually am not someone who keeps calling the husband every single minute giving live updates(OK! I did attempt,but always ended up hearing his “everything fine?I’ll talk to you in a bit”…just 10 nanosecs :/ ) But I sure am a woman who knows how to keep herself very busy – aimless blog hopping. 😀 That’s when I came across a beauty tip, which like the others promised that fresh-smooth-glowing skin. I remembered the Shenaz Neem face pack I had bought on my previous trip to India. As I was digging for that in my suitcases, I was picturing the husband singing this as soon as he sees me 😛

ek ladaki ko dekha to aisa laga…(when I saw this girl, she seemed to me like…)

jaise khilata gulaab(like a blooming rose)

jaise shaayar ka khvaab(like a poet’s dream) – WOW!

jaise ujali kiran(like a glowing ray of light) – Shenaz says I’ll very much be this in the next 20 mins.

jaise ban mein hiran(like a deer in the forest)

jaise chaandani raat(like a moonlit night)…….

 That’s when I heard it …THUD….THUD. I think I saw a shadow, like someone going down the window! I was shit scared, mainly because I live on the 33rd floor and I was all alone. Who on the earth is scaling such a tall building? Or is it my imagination?? I took a moment to think logical – It’s definitely not ghosts, because they don’t come during day time. It’s not the husband trying a surprise entry because I spoke to him on his India landline few mins back(Yea, right. That’s why it’s not him!) Hmm, who could it be..maybe an uber-hunk thief? Like Hrithik in Dhoom? Or maybe Spider Man??? Most likely Spider Man, given that New York is just a few mins away…

So I decided to go take a look outside the window,pinning all my hopes on the last two guesses.

This is what I saw – two ropes. So it was not my imagination!

Wait. Now rope rules out Spider Man,he don’t need those 😦 Hmmm. Then maybe it’s a theif, a la Hrithik in Dhoom or better, Kites. I peeped out the window, full of hopes and dreams only to find out it was…









The building maintenance guy, performing his bi-annual window washing duty 😐

So much for all the “logical” thinking I did. Hmmph!

For all the false hopes he made way for, I rightly punished him. Almost made him jump out of his skin. How?? By showing my face 😛

Hee Haw…
