when in dream don’t meow,woof or say that thing

[ warning :This is an extremely silly post just like the previous ones ,but i now care about you and hence this warning, so if you are allergic to silly and/or have a history of being in fully self aware state, kindly take a can full of chocolates before you start reading this, and if you are allergic to chocolates too,oh man that would be real bad ]
Let me start this story post by telling you something about dreaming. One has to be careful, very careful about what you say in your dreams. sometimes you say something which may seem perfectly fine and next thing you know the cannabala tribes are boiling you in a huge pot making a stew or you are being chased by huge mammoths and dinosaurs ..oh man! that is not good.
There are hundred things you should avoid doing and a thousand things you should not say but the thing which starts with ‘rat’ is absolutely a big no-no if you happen to be in a jungle in your dreams
want to know why..well ok this why
 when my daughter was 7
we were having a very serious bedtime discussion about animal talk
and  i said moo says the cow i want a hat
and meow said the cat i wish cheese didn’t have so much fat
i am here  croaked a frog in the bog
i know hissed a snake hiding under a log
my daughter said what if they said things that rhymed with their name
i thought wow that would be some game
sure why not i said  we will play that game next time
and both of us fell asleep
♣ what happened after that ♣
i was in a jungle
somewhere in antarctica
there i met a flying octopus who told me
this story
about this one time
when a cat said- lets us just say things
that rhymes with our names
and everyone else agreed
so  the cat said rat a tat a tat
 rat said rat a tat a tat
 bat said rat a tat a tat too 
so did the duck-billed platypus
well he said his body was flat ,
and he didn’t want to say cuss fuss bus
and then for some reason every animal
found it cool and soon it became fashion to say
rat a tat a tat
and just to say that and be in fashion
they claimed they too had some flat body part
or an ancestor that was flat
or a name that was flat if you read it
on a  lot of homework day
So the elephant said its ear was flat
zebra said its stripes were flat
crocodile said flat was his laugh
except for hyena
who could not find anything
but 10 days later came up with an reason to say
rat a tat a tat
and he said his thoughts were flat
and every animal for the next one year just said
rat a tat a tat
but after a year they all got bored
and that was that
and now they hate it so much
that they run after anyone who says
rat a tat a tat
so next time you go to a jungle
say what ever you want to
just not that which starts with rat.
That’s it,  now go to sleep
and remember, no matter what happens in dream
do not say that phrase that ends with a tat.
i hope it helps.

  1. Rat a tat , rat a tat
    why at all say that
    When one can say flat
    Even if you don’t like that
    Zebra shall say abracadabra
    To make froggy groggy
    The deer shall find some beer
    and chill out with tigress on egress…

    A bit drunk …he may mumble ..

    Rat a tat rat a tat ..rat a t…a…t..

  2. Your sense of humor, is always a great and beautiful blessing…thanks always for the joy you bring!

  3. Wow! it feels so good to be back here, i really missed your posts these few days. You’re are always doing it Soma. Thumbs up!

  4. One thing for sure, the cannabala tribes if they boil me in a huge pot, they’ll get nothing but tough meat and bones because my stomach is flat (well, at least it was about 20 years ago!) After eating me, if they break wind they’ll probably go rat-a-tat-a-tat…

    Funny post Soma dear…glad to be back. Luv and hugz, Eric 🙂

  8. Me thinks you have been eavesdropping ’round the doorframe of my bedroom at night, Soma! Such tatting and ratting I do mutter!

  9. This was lots of fun – I enjoyed it a lot. And I’m glad to get the chance to be back reading your posts! 🙂

  10. When appropriate silly is good. The key is knowing when to use it. Silly is fun as it can take us away to a land we didn’t consider visiting, yet help us see what we need to do when we aren’t silly Silly also helps keep things in perspective. Meanwhile, I want to end this silly philosophical perspective. Well done Soma!

  11. Hallo, eine schöne Woche.
    Gruß, Wolfgang

  16. Some day in the far away future intelligent life forms will find your ancient stories and teach grand lessons from the words. I just love your unique style. Silly, silly, silly… can write us a life’s instruction booklet…all the do’s and don’ts…until we realize there are no instructions and start using the r word that rhymes with cat. Hugs and love to you creative cat! 🙂 Sam

  17. Hilarious! We need to take life less serious! Cheers.

  18. Aaaaa! I do love your writing :D! And the silliness is what makes sense here 🙂 thank you thank you thank you 😀

  19. Hi Soma! Have a wonderful weekend!

  20. Awakened to a very rainy day, but your story has lifted my spirit. Hugs xx

  21. Coffee and Silly, with my eyes at half mast first thing in the morning …. Perfect my face is smiling and my heart is pitter pattering

  22. That “r” word rhymes with wombat, but I guess I’d better find something else to say so I won’t get chased and eaten. So maybe I’ll just say a fat cat sat on a mat of wat.

That reminds me of a horse full of remorse, and a goat that that wore a coat, together they met a lion that was crying and discovered a huge gnat on this big cat that gnawed and clawed as it felt ignored and all because the cheeky sloth went off with the moth. Dreams huh, they can be crazy! 🙂
