Daily Prompt :Avid

In response to daily post’s one-word prompt : Avid

Once upon a time I was an avid fan of the NHL games. I gave up watching it. There were issues in the game, I as a fan could not control. Each period was supposed to be an hour. Every time the referee blew the whistle the game stopped. The stop didn’t count how long they were on the ice but only how long they played.  This meant the one hour period would take as long as an hour and a half.

Added to the problem was the players fighting on the ice. This lengthened the period even more. No matter how ardent I was to know the result, my hunger for watching it diminished,  I started questioning myself, if all this  was  worth watching a game which would continue till the wee hours of the morning. It shortened my sleep time, which resulted in drowsiness throughout my work.

It wasn’t good for my teaching career. I decided to do what was best for me, quit watching these games!

  1. Dear Ranu,

    This post reminds me of how I am now disinterested in activities which once interested me. Oh how we change!

    All good wishes,
