I was in the dining hall of William Goodenough House in London UK. The issue that day was food they were serving, the smell completely overpowered my senses,I was certain I’ve never smelled anything so vile,I was in line to be served I did not want the food, but could not express to the chef how revolting it was. To be on the safe side and to avoid any controversy I pointed out the bread I wanted, she looked at me and said, “Is this all you want?”
“Yes” I said and moved on. While I was sitting in the dining hall I kept thinking why didn’t I tell her the real reason for wanting only bread when there were other foods I could have. I did not want her to think I was rude.
Today I won’t hesitate to speak my mind, I’d tell her: everything smells like pork,I do not eat pork!
We all seem to insist on busy, busy we constantly are.Let’s put things in perspective : tell us about the craziest, busiest, most hectic day you’ve had in the past decade.
I usually am not always so busy that it can be called the craziest, busiest,most hectic day I’ve had. When I have a day which is relatively quiet and peaceful anything added to it even if it’s kind of normal makes it a hectic day for me.
The past week I was in another city,I was trying to find a fall coat, there were many in different stores, but were not exactly appealing to me, some were too pricey, there was one I liked ,they didn’t have my size. I went looking for one from store to store, it was a cold rainy day, I had to go in and out of stores,this was becoming too hectic for me,at the end of the day I was walking faster and faster to catch the subway train to get to the right station.
When I was done running I arrived at the said station, I walked out it was raining and windy. I wanted to wait , my daughter thought we must get out and start walking, our apartment was nine hundred meters away, which meant swift walking or else we’d be completely drenched, we reached it but had to climb the spiraled staircase of more than thirty stairs. When I reached the front of the door I was breathless!
