A Post for my Fellow Blogging101 Participants:
Until now, I’ve never had the stomach for a full course dinner. I am more of a Chhole-bhature and Rajma-chawal kind of guy. Pile it all on a plate, stick a spoon into it, and hand it over. I’ll wolf it down with gusto. But drop me in a seat at a dining table, ask me to tuck a napkin into my shirt, and make me participate in polite conversation while we wait for the Hors d’Oeuvre….
Vrrrroooooommmm….I’ll be flying out of the window on a broom you never knew I possessed.
When I had enrolled for blogging101, I had expected a plate of Rajma Chawal. Now I know that I am in for a full sixteen-course dinner, which is great, because that’s the best way of doing things. Unfortunately, I keep flying in and out.
As I said, the course is great, but you can stick peacock-feathers in the tail of a pigeon, play Lambada music, and yet you can’t expect him to start dancing like a peacock. (If you missed it, I am the pigeon here.)
And yet, despite my wanderlust, I’ve managed to do more than my assignments so far. I so enjoyed our assignment today that I visited a dozen blogs and marked them with a comment or two. (I picked up this figure of speech from my dog. Please don’t go back and sniff your blog to confirm – I’ve marked them the way humans do, by leaving un-sniffable comments.)
So far, blogging101 has been unmanageable for me but nice…I was suffering from the frog-in-the-well syndrome, but the course has introduced me to some great bloggers who run some of the coolest blogs without losing their cool, and now I am looking forward to completing the course successfully.
Bye, but before you leave:
A glimpse into my most recurrent nightmare:
Me: Where’s my broom?
Wifey: Oh…I used it to clear the cobwebs.
Me: But where is it now? I need it.
Wifey: It wanted to be free, so it flew away!
