Its strange how we just see people all our lives without ever wondering where they came from or where they were going..
We take it for granted that the next time we walk in the door, they would be there, doing the dishes or drying the laundry, like they had for as long as you can remember.
Its like that old classic chair in the corner of the sitting room;
it was there when you started to learn how to crawl;
it was there when you were sent off screaming to nursery school;
it was right there in its corner, when you walked in screaming with your first prize;
it was still there when you packed your bags and swaggered off to college with that smug look on your face and those stars in your eyes, telling the world, here I come to beat the hell out of you!!
And every time you come back for a vacation, a little more beaten, a little more hopeless, with a few more stars fizzled out from your eyes, it lay right there.
May be, a little more thread-worn a little bit more dusty, the paint on it paws a little more chipped, the polish a wee bit duller, but it was there…still stagnant silent..but forever
And then you walk in one cold January weekend, wheezing from a bad case of viral, still not really over the nightmare of a, not unusually, bad set of semester exams, only to find a shining new leather recliner in place of the old chair.
Turns out, forever just ended.. (to be continued..)
yes, i promise to continue this one unlike another such post, whose second part i never really got round to wrting, so do wait for the next part :D
