It took me almost 2 weeks to learn the route to my new office here. I used to get down at wrong stops (I use public transportation, being the environmentally conscious person that I am), walk in the wrong direction for a mile then take an auto who dropped me back to exactly where I started. Having no direction sense sucks. And all the one-ways here are of no help either. I mean, one should be able to take the same route one took from home to office, to get back home. People wonder how having lived most of my life here I still cant tell one road from the another. Direction sense, I don't have it. Ok? And yeah I lied about that environmentally conscious thing. I don't use my vehicle because I don't want to get lost.
Since I am in a bitchy mood let me talk about another common skill that I don't have. I cant throw. If you are laughing, let me hurl this coffee mug at you oh wait, I cant! When I try to throw something, its like gravity suddenly decides to show its might and the object lands right where I am standing (a feet away if I am lucky). This has never been a problem for me, in my line of work I don't have to throw anything (except may be an exception) but the problem arises when I have to cross this play ground near my place. Everytime I cross this park a tennis ball comes flying over to where I am, followed by screaming kids who go "Aunty ball, Aunty please ball". To save myself from a lot of embarrassment I pretend not to hear them and quickly walk away. I must admit I feel very guilty but what the heck? Serves them right for calling me aunty. If you are thinking why don't I just avoid the park, direction sense, I don't have it!!! I don't know any other route.
I should stop complaining, should also stop getting stressed. Today Deccan herald carried two articles Stress Causes Cancer and Stress may not cause Cancer. Either way getting stressed is not good. Also I saw a Santa Clause in an auto yesterday. May be he lost his way too. Holiday season is here, I should lighten up.
