C'est la vie? | Vidya Sury, Collecting Smiles
“I gotta take a little timeA little time to think things overI better read between the linesIn case I need it when I’m older” Like I needed “Foreigner” to tell me that. But then, being reminded is also okay.Wonder why people expect you to assume things as in take them for granted – and even say it a few times to reassure you – and then, when you actually do a minor assumption, get all heated up?I’ve noticed this time and again on various occasions. Why is it that people often do not mean what they say? And why must I always be ‘understanding’ of everyone’s actions? In these situations, I always realize how much more reliable my ‘extended’ family is (you know – the dhobi, milkman, fruitseller…). They always greet with a smile. Enquire about family members. And guess what, they actually remember in context what I might have told them. Its the simplest things that are the nicest, most of the time. Thank you for subscribing to my blog!
