Sometimes it’s necessary to ignore weird looking people. They are never short of tricks in their repertoire. I made the mistake of paying attention to a bystander. He was a tall man, neither overweight nor skinny. It seemed the whole neighborhood was paying a lot of attention to him, I joined in to know why he got so much attention .

My neighbor V and A smiled and told me to listen. With those two in the crowd I felt safe. I noticed his voice was low it was not audible enough for me, I moved closer to hear what he was saying, finally it was clear what he wanted us to do.

Apparently there was a poor young woman in the next street selling some valuable jewellery at a very low price. We all must visit her and at least buy one thing from her, she needs the money. I was curious to see what she was selling, I decided I must go before someone else buys  the better jewels.

I went to her house, pressed the door bell, no sound, did I come to the wrong place I thought, I checked the number, it was the right one. I heard a loud bark, out came this scary German Sheppard, I was terrified but stayed, I expected some human to show up, no luck . I rang the door bell again this time I could see an old man coming murmuring something under his breath.

I wanted him to come out, he did after a few seconds, with his most extraordinary voice he said, “Yes what can I do for you?”

I thought it was a strange question since I was told some young woman needed money, she was selling her jewellery. I hesitatingly said ,”the jewellery I came to buy some.”

He gave me a puzzled look, “is this what they told you and  roared into an unstoppable laughter?”

I stood there stunned why did they trick me like that I wondered. I saw V and A laughing, A came and said, “Did you forget this is April 1st ?”

I was so embarrassed I quickly ran home!

DP Daily Prompt: April 2nd

This morning I communicated with my blogger friends online. Although I’ve never seen or heard them I’m comfortable writing to them. There are so many options in English , the vocabulary helps, it is quite easy to communicate with friends using words.

I’m able to convey my feelings using words connected to feeling. In fact I’ve written a long email to my friend, who has no trouble understanding what I’m thinking . Sometimes icons are helpful to convey a message such as happy, unhappy.

365 Writing Prompts: April 2, 2015

When I was a child, I was never attached  to any inanimate object. Sure I played with some, at the end of the day, it disappeared, I did not care to look for it.

We my siblings and I spent hours playing with flat pieces of stone, we lay one on top of the other, when it had a reasonable height, we struck it with a round stone to scatter the flat pieces, this continued until we had enough of it.

Our next interest was to explore the neighborhood, there were many queer places which always attracted our attention, one day we decided to visit one of the places, it was near a race course, we walked on and on and suddenly saw a crowd of people ,we had to know what they were up to. We were delighted to see a group of people frying parathas  in a giant-sized wok outdoors. These flat round breads looked delicious. We had no money but the guys were giving them to every one there, we stood watching them one of them invited us to join them.

I can still taste those delicious flat breads.

Attaching myself to material objects I fear is a waste of time, if it is lost I’d be weeping for endless number of days. My way is better playing with stones found on the ground can never attract anyone’s attention, it can be left anywhere there is no danger of losing them.
