As Know As Pinky!!!

I was determined to post something today. Even if I could only manage to lift my head up long enough to click ‘publish’. Battling a nasty virus, stuffy nose, swollen throat, fever, et al. And the grey, gloomy, drippy weather isn’t helping any.

Seems like only the other day that we were pining for rain…..for a respite from the torridity. But I hate the rain. Well not rain exactly, but rain in Chennai. Rumi would certainly have an enlightened couplet about the ingratitude of the human species. But I still hate rain in Chennai.

Especially when our drains get choked and the roads overflow with rain water mixed with God knows what! My OCD kicks in full pelt in this weather, and my worst phobia is of getting stuck on a flooded street. I have told R that if my car ever stalls during a downpour, I shall climb up on to the roof and wait for a truck driver to rescue me ‘filmi style’ as they say here. No way am I wading through that slush!

Am I rambling? I am. Time for my medication.

This post was supposed to take my mind off of all of this and bring you some smiles. Hope it does 🙂

A tad presumptuous from an Indian, but you have to agree funny is funny 🙂

  1. I returned to work today – out sick one day – and I still had laryngitis and a stuffy nose. A flu bug is making its way thru our area. Hope you’re feeling much better by now.

  2. Aye Haye Madhu beenar hay – not good ! Speedy recovery to you my friend !
    As for the post – sure made me chuckle !! Yes, I can imagine the torrential rains in Chennai – reminded me of my days in Africa! Uff ! And, certainly you shall be rescued through the heli-pad from your car roof !!! Lol.
    Feel well Madhu – how about a few shots of brandy ya cognac ! Too good I am na?! Cheers to you (of cos, and it’s my bday – so, drink is on you !!)
    😉

      1. A shot of brandy with hot water, lime and pepper sounds like just what I need! Shall drink to your health and happiness Mashaal…many happy returns of the day 🙂

  3. I’m sorry you are “under the weather.” Even in your foggy state you managed to turn out a very entertaining post. Hope you are feeling better soon!

  4. Hope you feel better soon… The weather here is also changing, so everyone is under the weather! Interesting signs 🙂 You know, I wouldn’t mind trying that tea… It could be that something was lost in translation 😀

    1. Perhaps. It is probably tea flavoured apple pie in a cup (still yuck)! None of the possibilities sounded exciting Kasturika 🙂

  5. Yes, I chuckled. Seeing you on the roof top would be a photo op for someone. Better spend rainy days at home or in the mall taking photos of crazy signs. Bounce back quickly. Lingering colds are no fun.

    1. Thanks Eliz. My travel mates caught on and started pointing them out to me. R thought the header image from a boutique was a Momo shop 😀

Let me know what you think
