You know those T-shirts that come with corny slogans on them? I feel like wearing one permanently. The slogan should be 'I'M WITH STUPID'. Before you start wondering who the flesh and blood reality of my metaphorical Stupid is, let me spare you the trouble. Its ME. And the worst part is, I can never dump me, so I'm stuck with Stupid for life.
You're wondering what brought on this bout of self appreciation? I lost my cellphone today.
It was a pretty ordinary phone, nothing fancy, no camera or MP3 player or ipod or...I dunno, all that other unnecessary stuff....inbuilt cars, dogs, jetplanes etc. You could call, you could text, and listen to annoying radio jockeys on the FM channels, that's about it. But it was pretty, pink, purple and white, and it had been with me for two years. So what, you ask. It was just an old phone, that too an outdated model, can be replaced soon (debatable, but I'll let that pass...see, the word 'soon' is less likely just now considering the recession in my finances). I'll tell you why the despair. You see, it was MINE, and I miss it. It was reassuring, it was my alarm clock which consistently failed to get me anywhere on time, it was my dose of trashy songs.
I still don't understand how I managed to lose it. One moment I was laughing at Hugh Grant on the big screen, the next moment I was going through the garbage bag at the theatre. Popcorn boxes soggy with spilt Coke...EW! No luck. Damn. I think I'm gonna go and have a good cry.
P.S.: - Hey, you. Hugh Grant. I don't care what they say, you've still got it.
P.P.S.: - In case you haven't already figured out exactly how accurate Orkut fortunes are, maybe this'll help. My fortune for today said,"You will inherit a large amount of money". Hah.
