Old Friends + Movie In A Theater =Devilish Consequences

At a particular stage in everyone's life they realize that they are an adult and to be honest it's quiet horrifying. Responsibilities start crowding your head, money matters a lot more than you valued in the past and work definitely becomes worship. But a single day spent with the old friends you value the most, changes all. Yesterday was one such day to me.

A friend who I call when I'm angry beyond control, a friend I remember when I want have have some good news worth sharing and a friend who I count as family, visited me. I hate to say this out loud but that devil is Toufeeque. I was excited when he called me to say that he was coming to Chennai. And thus the planning begun.

One thing that we cherish the most is movies. First step: log on to bookmyshow. Step 2: Book tickets for The Equalizer. Step 3: Stay excited.

And so Sunday came, the devil came and the rest is history. Like barney says "yesterday was legen-, wait for it, -dary. LEGENDARY". Pizza, chicken wings, burgers, chicken wings again and most importantly The Coke. Everything that could spoil a man in just one night. Wish it never ended.

Sharing stories, recalling memories and eating ground nuts was a midnight chore and before we knew it was time for him to leave the happy world and return to the scheduled world.

Now here I am still believing that this will happen again soon.

My Birthday Blog

There are times you wish wouldn't come to an end, but they always do. Time isn't a friend to any and certainly hasn't been to me either. But one thing remains when such cherished moments pass and we accept them as memories. Well, today is definitely one of those.

Rarely I cross a line, drawn by myself, accepting people into the circle that stand dear to me. This day the rarity became a myth. Many I've been close with have become dearer and the thought of losing a single one haunts me.

Personal stuff apart, the party at office was a blast. A coke shaped cake, bottles of snowy sprays, a thums up tin and the kicking, everything was just top notch. Not to forget the bread and cheese I had this morning. Thanks for the wonderful shirt and the balloons and the ring. Couldn't thank you guys enough.

Nothing completes this without thanking the family. To all my brothers and sisters, uncles and aunts, most of all my Mom, you were the ones who stayed with me during my best and worst, and not thanking you guys for wishing me would be a sin. So, thanks again.

I still wish to write a lot, but the querty keypad of my phone restricts me from doing so. Here goes my final gratitude, "Birthdays are events that are celebrated for a reason, but events today made me realize that this birthday was the reason I was born for".

A Loyal Apology To The Ones I Care

Families fight and get back together before anyone would realize, but a stain remains within the guilty for creating the mess. Well, I have my fair share of those moments and I make sure that I give my best to make up for those times.

Today one such event occurred when people close to me got caught up in a cold war. The best solution to this in my opinion is to sort it out before it bursts up in open and shake hands on a deal that works for both. But to be honest, this has moved too far from both the sides and would take a lot more than a few handshakes. But it still is sortable.

If it were my blood, I would have raised with authority and concluded it even before it would be considered a spat. But the situation here is something I don't wand to head into. I would rather be a spectator instead of a participant. Thought this makes me feel bad, a part of my heart, the one I abide to, keeps telling me to leave the mess alone.

Maybe that's the difference between   the family I care for and the family I love. For I do care for the ones caught up in this awkward battle. The reason here is to know if I did the right thing? If this isn't what you expected of me, I humbly apologize as there is nothing more I could do in order to bring peace between the two.
