Rohit had not slept properly since days. It was his brother’s wedding and the tasks at hand didn’t seem to end. All the stress, receiving relatives from railway station and the rush to get those wedding supplies left him exhausted. But it were the trips to & from that beauty parlor which irritated him the most. Thankfully, it was the finale day today. Soon it would be the end of his miseries !
With all these thoughts swarming his mind, he groggily got up and switched off the alarm.
He drowsily headed towards the only empty bathroom in the house.
His eyes were still half closed when the toothbrush sans toothpaste entered his mouth.
He was still somnolent as he sat on the commode.
He was too sleepy to notice how one end of the drawstring to tie the pajamas went inside its seam .
He still looked half asleep as he fidgeted with the drawstring to tie his pajamas back.
But he looked wide awake as he rushed past the cluster of relatives, desperately trying to keep the pajamas up!
Megha was as hungry as a bear. She hadn’t taken her breakfast that morning and now after the backbreaking schedule, she got the time to look at her lunch box.
She hurriedly opened the tiffin to gulp down the contents. To her dismay,she found dreaded Brinjals inside. But as hungry as she was, even the yucky Brinjals seemed like a delicacy to her.
Now, as she was about to take the first bite, a big fly started buzzing over her head. It zoomed past the morsel in her hand, buzzed in her ears and landed on her head. She jerked her head to shoo it away but the crazy fly came upto her nose, again buzzed in her ears and then settled on her hand. This got to her nerves. She put the morsel down, got up, picked a big book and gave the fly a good chase. Finally, it went out of sight.
Heaving a sigh of relief, Megha rushed back to her tiffin.
“Ah! At last, time to eat some food UNINTERRUPTED!” She exclaimed.
Again as she was about to put that first morsel in her mouth, the notorious fly came out from nowhere and landed straight into the tiffin, on the vegetable.
It looked as if the fly was hungrier than our poor Megha! 😉
