The Hangover

The last couple of weeks have been unsettling, to put it mildly. For someone who is resistant to change, too many things are happening too fast: not all of it is bad, mind you; but it’s change all the same. So far I was dealing with it in a matured manner, i.e. binge drinking, binge eating and binge reading.

There is a certain amount of comfort in those tequila shots…
There is a certain amount of familiarity in the butter chicken and rumaali roti…
There is a certain amount of feel-good factor in the crunchy chocolate bar…
There is a certain amount of relief in the pages of an old cult classic…
There is a certain amount of pleasure in spending two hours in a shady theatre laughing out loud…
There is a certain amount of security in the repeat episodes of Friends and BBT…
There is a certain amount of joy in browsing through the new collections in the shoes section…
There is a certain amount of happiness in long phone conversations and text messages…

There is still something to look forward to

@PRACHETASH
"hopeful" is stretching it a tad too much...
