Writing 101, day 14: Recreate a single day.

Magic of Hug

Only once in my life time I did a mischievous act and got punished for it. Friends do it every time play prank on others and got away with it. 

I pulled the chair when my friend was going to sit, she fell down. Nothing happened to her but the chair’s arm fell down too. I was summoned to Mother Superior. She calmly fined me Rs. 13 without any scolding.

When I told my mother, She paid the fine but she scolded me terribly even after me saying sorry to her and my friend, and also that it was my first mischief. Wasn’t I her youngest and pet child? How could she do it to me? 

 I did not eat and went to sleep early. 

After some time I felt a warm drop on my cheek and a hand…

Why aren’t we talking about Cockroaches?

I want to know. I really really do! why cats, why not cockroaches? Pages after pages filled with nothing but poems and essays and stories about cats, what’s with that?

Some people asked me if this was the reason I have been missing from blogosphere, why, yes, I was! So disturbed and depressed was I with the kind of shoddy treatment cockroaches have been getting  that I left this world. Out there in the space I met some really intelligent people who told me future belongs to cockroaches, not cats. They advised me to return to my planet and work on making the world cockroach friendly.

WORK BEGINS

DAY 1 BLOGGING ABOUT COCKROACHES. MY APT AND SHARP REPLIES TO ALL THE PEOPLE WHO WROTE ABOUT CATS NOT BECAUSE THEY LOVED’EM BUT BECAUSE THEY WERE ANTI-COCKROACH HUMANS.

1) Kittens can happen to anyone. ~Paul Gallico

Why Sir, so can cockroaches, what’s with this song and noise?

2)“I wish I could write as mysterious as a cat.”

Edgar Allan Poe

 something that has been here for millions of years, survived nuclear attacks,  living -procreating under your cabinets, behind the walls. You think it is gone, but a lil heat and damp, it re-surfaces. All these and much more and you still think Cats are mysterious?

ask the pesterminators what keeps them awake at nights, ask the scientists if they are sure the latest spray can get rid of roaches completely and they run and hide in a cabinet and howl like a mad wolf.

I wish I could scribble like cockroaches Mr. Poe!

3) “The only escape from the miseries of life are music and cats…”
Albert Schweitzer

oh pulheeese, no way. Go get some bagels. cockroaches are proof that you have food clothes, toothbrushes ,hair , fresh or decaying matter in possession. either this or you live in sewer, either way you have something!!

something= cockroaches=no miserable

4) “I am fond of pigs. Dogs look up to us. Cats look down on us. Pigs treat us as equals.”
Winston S. Churchill

lol lol lol  Mr.Churchill you said Pigs. LOL ROFLLMAO. Am sure you meant Cockroaches

5) “Of all God’s creatures, there is only one that cannot be made slave of the leash. That one is the cat….
Mark Twain

ha ha ha yeah Mr. Twain cos we sure can make cockroaches our slaves

6) It is impossible to keep a straight face in the presence of one or more kittens.

~Cynthia E. Varnado

7) There has never been a cat
Who couldn’t calm me down
By walking slowly
Past my chair.
~Rod McKuen

Well Mr. McKuen, There has never been a cockroach who couldn’t get me up By waking slowly Past my chair. what do you have to say about that huh?

PHEW!!

There I have proved each and every anti- cockroach person wrong. In fact before publishing this article I sent a copy of this excellent piece I created to all of writers mentioned ( yes all of them) and all of them have since apologised. They have realised their folly.

But what about you COMMON PEOPLE, when will you understand the power of coackroaches, or will you rather be unprepared and be treated a slave in a Cockroach World?

Join now or be left behind with nothing but regrets and no entry to rock concerts, ever.

Hope with this post I have succeded in creating awareness about THE MIGHTY, SUPREMELY TALENTED, MYSTERIOUS COCKROACHES.

(if not, do write so that I can repost it till you get it.)

Thanks and happy HOLI

11th October    was    being celebrated   as     KARBA   CHAUTH     (a new element   to RENEW bonding between wife and husband being heavily   propagated   by   TV SERIAL   all over India).  Though there   was     a   threat of   CYCLONE   “ hud Hud”    over   Vizag, most   of us ignored   it   as,(  in    previous   occasions    of   such   alarm ) we had to cut a sorry figure   in narrating    our   absolutely “TROUBLE FREE “life    and  faced difficulty   in describing    a few   millimeter   rise of   WAVE in the   sea.

Our flat    is located on the second row of   apartments    from   beach road.

At  about   6 PM  , I   informed    my  anxious   son   and daughter     ( Mumbai   and   Delhi )  that   there  was  a clear  sky   with   visible  moon    for   Karba  chauth   calibration    .  They laughed    but    CAUTIONED     US    not to take things lightly  …

Greatest Story ever told is on another shelf

Peter Cameron once wrote that one man’s nonsense is another man’s sense. God forbid if someday someone ever even in the tiniest possible way understood the nonsense I weave. That day my friends is not one I would like to see. That day all the dinosaurs and dodos will disappear from the face of earth for good and no one, not ever Steven Spielberg will be able to bring them back even on screen. 
Anyways so I was reading Zombie Haikus by Ryan Mecum. Let me take a moment here to tell you guys about Ryan Mecum. He is God of fun haikus and poems. Be it Zombies or Vampires or Werewolves, Ryan has written about all of them. like check these out-
“Those were not vampires.
If sunlight makes you sparkle,
you’re a unicorn.”
and
“Blood is really warm,
it’s like drinking hot chocolate
but with more screaming.” 
Haan how cool is that? Click these links to read more and you will be so happy that may be you will adopt a vampire or a zombie today.

so as I was saying I was reading Zombie Haikus and was so horribly terribly inspired that I wrote a poem on Zombies ( cos I don’t know how to write a haiku)  which is Dark and Gory and deadly and deep and horrible and everything that is bad but in a good sort of way.
 There was once a zombie
who married for treats,
then the treats disappeared
and all that was left was gift wraps
and empty boxes
Then he was shot in a grocery store
cos people thought he was going to eat them
and why a zombie would want to buy bleach
they couldn’t understand
But Zombies don’t die unless shot at head
the grocery store security guy didn’t know that
so the zombie kept getting up and shot
again and again and a few times more
it was like a big, giant story of
death and re birth all happening
so fast and so may a times
and the security guy was in tears
crying why don’t you die
you horrible thing with a bottle of bleach
All this was so funny in a horrible sort of way
GOOD LORD A ZOMBIE PIG I THINK I HAVE SEEN IT ALL MAY BE NOT I AM NOT THAT OLD

GOOD LORD A ZOMBIE PIG
I THINK I HAVE SEEN IT ALL
MAY BE NOT I AM NOT THAT OLD
