I wish I had said that,
I wish I had kissed him,
I wish I had stayed back a little more,
I wish I had gone a little further…
We often wonder what if … many such what if’s and why not’s!
I often wonder what if I had stayed back in Omaru (New Zealand) and got lost with the penguins. What if I sneaked out of the bed and took a flight to Amsterdam to meet Van Gogh. Often in the traffic on the way to office, I feel just go … go straight to the airport and take the next flight out to anywhere.
I always did whacky, all the time…
Suddenly took off to Lonavala (a nearby hill station) from Bombay rather than going to college to meet my love.
Landed up at a friends place midnight to say sorry and then drove back 50 miles.
Kept my friends waiting at home on my birthday and treated the street urchins to yummy chocolate cakes in a fancy Bistro.
Drove straight to Pushkar from Delhi 300 miles! It was better than standing in the long queue for those movie tickets.
Walked out of the hospital after a surgery and hours later I was in a meeting & next gorging at my favorite Kakori Kebaabs!
Went for a trip with office staff and then suddenly took off to a nearby desert, calling my boss that I will not be turning up for work for the next few days!
Crept out of bed midnight and took the early morning flight in my pajamas to meet my love!
Sold my gold earrings and gave all the money to a boy singing in the train for medicine for his little sister and told my mom that I lost my earrings.
Resigned from my job one day and went to watch Vertical Limit with a friend and end up getting another job in the movie intermission.
Blew all my bank balance … got reduced to Rs 3/- and then called a friend with that from a pay phone and signed up a big deal!
Kicked a drunkard from a moving bus in dark hours in Ghaziabad! (Not very safe for girls in the night, rather anytime!)
Danced with a friend in a stranger’s wedding and ended up taking pictures and video’s … I am sure they will be wondering who the hell am I?
Go for a Christmas party and end up Proposing!
We all have stories and those whacky moments … I have endless
I never thought twice before saying or doing anything … then why now?
Have I lost my spark! that spunk or have I stopped living (at the edge)
Have I sobered, have I got domesticated?
Nope I don’t think so. I still fall in love everyday…
Now I just trip to see my little angel’s face everyday, to hug her all sweaty and smelly when she is back from school. All cuddled in bed with her, I don’t feel like creeping out. Now I like to dance with her rather than dancing in stranger’s wedding. Intoxicated with her smell and touch
… She’s my Trip!
I know soon she will take off … and I will too!
