I Don't Know What to do Anymore :-(

03 September 2009

I have been extremely clueless for the last one week. You see, I don’t know what to do, anymore.

My motley group of friends and siblings suggested the following, strictly keeping me in mind, as they emphasized:

  1. Become a food taster

  2. Open a clothes store

  3. Rebel at work, scream at the boss, get fired just for kicks

  4. Try gardening without killing the plants and watering the weeds

  5. Learn pottery(the only sensible solution)

  6. Renounce the world, get going to the Himalayas

  7. Get a nose job done

  8. Get another degree

  9. Be different: think negative

  10. Act profound and stare when someone approaches my work desk

  11. Pretend I’m an alien(this shouldn’t be tough, they reckoned)

  12. Get a t’scope, peer without a break into the neighbour’s house

  13. Learn to type with my toes

  14. Develop a complex & hone it (this, they calculated, should keep me occupied for the rest of my life!)

  15. Wear tattered clothes to work & roll up my eyes, nod & sigh when questioned

  16. Transmigrate

  17. Tonsure my head

  18. Ask “But why?” with a poker face each time the super-annoying HR woman asks a question/opens her mouth to speak


Am I overwhelmed or what. With such well-wishers, do I need enemies?

I don't know which is more hilarious from all the suggestions mentioned above. Tonsure? ha ha!

Anonymous 9/03/2009  

I think you should definitely do a combination of all ... I will be popping back shortly to see which ones you have achieved! I especially want to hear HR reactions ... ;0)

Regarding the last line, no you don't need even a single enemy my friend!

this is an excellent list. i'd get right on all of it! :-) especially typing with toes and the telescope thing.

@ED: I actually tried talking to the HR woman with a But why. She declared I needed to go home and rest!
@IP: Yeah! Imagine that! & dnt miss the fact that they suggested all this with me in mind! Disgraceful!:-)
@Juloka: Telescope, yes! Typing with my toes? :D

For a change you can also try going to strip tease bars ... go catching flies in the garden ... try counting your hair ... go out puncture all the car's tyre you see ... go to your office in your night dress night and ask your boss for a 'beedi' !!

LOL, those were funny ... your friends are so kind and loving ! :P

Yeah,Nidhi, just took up your number tag on my blog .. do check the 'miscalculations' there ;)
And, I don't see my blog in your blog rolls, feature me too, mere hone waale bacche duayen denge ! ;)

Take care and don't ask me 'but why' !

Sourav...in love with me and life

Saad Shaikh 9/03/2009

good one.. I wish I had friends like you to suggest me something like that.. lol.. :D

BardSpeaks 9/03/2009  

@ Jaideep: Don't go by my friends! I have them by default!!!!!!!!Don't judge me by my family & friends!!!!!

@Sourav: heh heh...thanks for the crazy suggestions! BTW, I haven't updated my list on the blog roll for more than an age. Will do ASAP!

@ Saad:Want me to give you the numbers of my friends? You obviously can't ask me :but why!!!!!!!"

Hilarious post. I think all of them are amazing suggestions :D

Long back , when shabana azmi tonsured her head, I wanted to do so too.. just to see how I look. But at that time I had lovely longhair, and I figured if I cut them all it would take ages to grow them back.. so shelved that idea. But I was this close.. I am sure my mom would have disowned me had I done that.. That or lock me up in a dungeon. heeehee..

Do tell us which ones you have decided to do other than your HR idea.

Rohini Prasanth 9/04/2009  

Hey Bard. You've been tagged. Do check it out at my blog.. Hope you find it interesting to do.

BardSpeaks 9/04/2009  

@ Rohini: I tried transmigration! I, now, know what a pig's life is like! :-)
