A Lightning Conversation

One of the main reasons I had not advertised this blog was because I wasn't sure whether I myself will continue writing on this for too long. But given some particularly encouraging words I received in the recent past from fellow bloggers--Smita and Sinjini--who happened to stumble upon it, I am back.

Today is a nice, relaxed Sunday for me. I intend my blogpost to reflect the same. So I am thinking on the lines of a conversation...a made up conversation...made up of Facebook status updates.

I have wondered in the past, how it would be if I was to compile the status updates of my friends in an attempt to build a coherent conversation out of it? Let me try it today:

"A friend is looking for Car... small to medium segment... budget 4-5 lacs... Ur vote goes to???"

"Baby has an ultra goopey eye (since yesterday morning, is getting more goopey). )-: Been doing the breastmilk treatment which usually works. Might be time for something else...any suggestions?"
"Hot chocolate fudge icecream (fatfree)!"

"I washed my hair."
"YOU are a phenomenal woman, a beautiful person,doing an extraordinary job."

"Will work to remove boredom."
"It's time to unwind."

"Can you believe it's raining cats and dogs?"
"This adds a new dimension to my pride."

"Just give me one thing that I can hold on to."


  1. Good to see you back! :) I love the pic....can almost smell the mouthwatering tangy flavors of the pickle shop...

    I loved the reply to 'I washed my hair'...some more to the list...

    "Hmm..." [and no its not our dear friend... ;)]

    "I hate rains in summers" [Well...coming from someone staying in Delhi and that too after a welcome downpour amidst 40 degrees...I guess this person needs to see a shrink ASAP]

    "Looking for a friend" [needs to get a life]

    and can't wait to see your answer on this one.."How can people like reading?" [:D]

  2. Thank you for your comments, ladies. I love you both for being such persistent readers of mine. Appreciate it.

  3. "Sundays are the best."
    "Mother will never stop complaining about my cupboard."
