Hey.. Peeps.. :) I woke up in morning like frozen chicken, tied my hair in a messy ponytail, made a morning prayer to Lord for making my day great, managed my bed, checked my cellphone if I got any texts- 4 texts received, 2 of my friends and 2 of some mobile recharge schemes. Ugh.. I don't even open these kinda scheme promotion texts. I consider them as spams and delete as I see them. My phone was screaming battery low.. damn! it turned off. I plugged in the charger. I gazed outside my balcony, foggy morning so lovely, deadly cold.
Took bath, got ready. Ah.. I need coffee! I had to go to the bank. I asked dad: where are the keys of my scooty? Dad: Scooty? No, its foggy. You will go by taxi. Damn. Why they think am a kid? I can drive in this fog, I can see. Dad: No! Okay I'll drive and you'll sit back. I: no I can go by taxi. So I left for bank. Grr! Oh its cold outside, I need a scarf.
Taxi! Taxi! Yea.. I got one. Ah! Its cold: asked a guy sitting next to me rubbing his hands. I said: Hmm.. yea! I don't like strangers talking to me unless they need some help. I just get away and put all my efforts to ignore them. He: so. I: So what? He: Where are you going? I: no reply! I was wishing some other people to come and sit around me as only we two were there in taxi. He: Okay, what's your name? I ignored him. He: hello am talking to you. I am vegetarian, I won't eat you. This time I said: Look, I don't wanna talk to you, don't you get this? Please! or I'll leave this taxi.
He: Okay, get off the taxi. Excuse me! why should I leave taxi? I roared at him. 'Cause I am getting bore- he said and winked. Argh! You winked? Yes you winked. I hate it. Don't you have cellphone? If you are getting bore then talk to your friends but spare me, I advised and roared. I was grumbling to myself that I should have come with my dad. I thought to listen some songs on my phone. I checked my pockets. Oh crap! I left it at home, it was charging. Oh Geez!
Finally, few people came and taxi was full. I took a deep breath. He was sitting next to me and no space, I just hated it. His shoulder touched mine at turns. He was looking lasciviously. I wished I could have pushed him out of the taxi. Okay, just 2-3 minutes more and I'll reach bank. I heard myself saying: Shreya just 2-3 minutes, don't create a scene. Yes! I reached, I stopped the taxi and felt fine.
After few minutes, I heard someone screaming. He was running back to me, screaming: hey. Hey! You! Yes you. I ignored and walked fast. He screamed his voice out, you in blue jeans and gray jacket. You with brown hand bag. God! why all embarrassing things happens with me. I stopped, turned! What the f.. I paused in wonder. He was holding a white envelope and said: you left this in taxi. I was like: oh.. thanks. It was bank's envelope with some important papers. I donno how that envelope slipped, may be when I was paying to the taxi driver. He was breathing hard, and said: Finally you talked, and broke into a laugh. You started again, I said. He said, nice meeting you. I said, I won't say same here. He said: I know. We left.
While I was returning, I thought and thanked him for returning me that envelope. I felt may be all strangers are not bad. I told this to mom. She said, you are stupid. Yea I am. I wonder, how life bring all these kinda unexpected episode to our lives. May be I'll remember it someday out of the blues and smile on this bitter sweet episode. Oops.. this post has become ridiculously long. Signing out.. may God bless y'all.. :)
