A Very Busy Day
A Very Busy Day
Mani: Hey Bunny! How ya doing? You know it was quite a busy day for me.
Bunny: Hey Mani! I am doing great. Although I don’t want to know but tell me anyways about your busy day.
Mani: Haa! I knew it. Of all the people, you would be the one to hear me every time.
Bunny: Whatever. Let’s finish with what you have to tell me about your “BUSY” day.
Mani: (Laughing) HaHa… I love your little jokes. You know, I was reading a research article in the morning. It was really interesting.
Bunny: (Caught with surprise… and getting interested) were you really? Tell me about it.
Mani: Yeah! I was. There were some terms in the article which I didn’t know about. So I searched for them in the browser window on my tablet… And just for the sake of it, I logged into my Facebook profile in another tab.
And then it was like magic. I scrolled down and down. And it kept rolling further downwards. I couldn’t believe I had so much to catch up on since last night. Lots of people to be wished happy birthdays… Lots to be wished anniversary… Lots of comments to be liked, posts to be shared on my wall… Thousands were waiting for my reply on the photos of their babies, spouses, puppies, cats, their new houses, new cars, their titanic pose on a small boat… and millions of other things. And you know what, you gotta think before you write to anyone because you want your comment to sound unique.
(Mani pauses again to wait for any comment to come from Bunny. But it doesn’t come. So he continues again…)
Then I found a couple of my old friends who were very kind enough to talk to me about the old times, about their present lives. And together we shared the anecdotes of ‘our wonderful miserable monotonous melancholic lives’. It was really good to talk to them you know.
And you won’t believe Bunny, continues Mani further, I spent my entire day scrolling downwards and working. It was kinda really hectic you know.
Bunny: (Getting annoyed and still waiting for any slightest information about the article.) So how was the article anyways?
Mani: (Thinking…) what article?
Bunny: (Doing his best in hiding the sarcasm and anger from his face…) Oh never mind. You have, after all, spent a very busy and hectic day. You should better relax now.
