“Mmmh!…blue…red… green. Which one?”

Amy’s fingers tapping hard on her chin. Her eyes are fixed on them, as they are hanging in the trial room.

“This one!” She picks up the green one.

“Mmmh…it suits my skin tone well.”

“Amy!” calls her friend, “time to go… closing time.”

“Yah! Coming.” Like a broken spell — her eyes move away from the mirror, and she starts folding them.

While travelling on the bus, posters of models stare at her. In the cell’s mild glow, her face looks content. A smile rests on her face. Order placed — her art products will arrive tomorrow.

Joke of the day

It is said, “Laughter is the best medicine”. Sometimes things just happen and you decide to laugh. Today was one such day and I had my portion of laughter medicine and thought it would be great to share some portion here with everyone.

My sister and I had gone shopping and were returning home.

I just asked her, “L***** do you want some chips?”

And she said, “No, I’m chewing gum.” It was the way she had intonated that made me laugh and I asked her quickly, “Since when have you become Chewing Gum.”

Then she corrected herself and said, “No, I mean I am chewing a gum.”
