Just my day!

Alarm doesn’t go off, I’m late for work.

The maid absconds, my cabwala’s a jerk.

The lift malfunctions, I have to walk up 7 floors.

Son’s teacher calls, “Ma’am, come grace our doors.”

Damn! I say and walk 7 floors down again.

My heel breaks, I get an ankle sprain.

I step out hurriedly and the rain pours down.

My umbrella clasp breaks, frustrated I frown.

My mobile rings, shoot! I gotta take boss’s call

I miss the curb and splat! Into the puddle I fall

“It’s just for today,” I cry ruefully

Though I know, “I’m just being silly.”

About Sonal Singh

I believe that life is a repertoire of anecdotes. The various situations that we encounter, the many incidents of every day, the people we meet, our conversations with them; all make life a melange of tales. And, that is what I attempt to capture through my writing. My cooking is no different! It reflects my love for travel and my love for innovation. The kitchen is my happy place. So, even though by vocation I am a recruiter (www.rianplacements.com), by passion I am a writer, home chef and a hodophile.
