Growing up II

When you wake up with a bad mood, the whole damn world conspires against you. And you spend the day returning people's smile with an impolite nod or a blank stare, being reticent and being excessively aggressive in the TT room. And the mood follows you like a terrible stink wherever you go.

Its strange when you look back and realise that your very meticulously planned actions seem to be nothing but a fool's handiwork now. The merit of the actions are now suddenly absent. But unfortunately somebody has already judged you in the light of what you did. Its like the wrong answer you give in an Interview room with all confidence only to realise it the moment you step out of the room. You cant really do anything now, can you? Except, of course, an incisive catharsis.

Wisdom usually dawns upon you at the unlikeliest moment. Today, when I had a mouthful of rice and curry, the moment of realisation came - When you find an expensive show-piece, keep away from it.

Lesson learnt.
