Someone’s left you a voicemail message,but all you can make out are the words: “I’m sorry. I should’ve told you months ago.Bye.” Who is it from, and what is this about?
Let me see a voice mail message: “I cannot understand the first few sentences, all I can hear is ” :
“I’m sorry,I should’ve told you months ago. Bye.”
Told me what months ago, I keep thinking, who promised to do what for me, I’m racking my brain, what did any one promise me, I just cannot make any sense out of this incomplete message. So I sat down thinking, one after another I started scratching names of possible persons who could have called and left this useless message.
Suddenly I remembered it was Kavita who told me months ago she was coming to my city for a visit and would I mind if she stays with me, I had told her I’d love to see her. I have everything ready and now this message, some people if I may say so are ill-mannered, did their parents forget to teach them courtesy, I wonder. After I went through all the work she leaves me a measly unfinished message. Next time she says she wants to come to my place for a visit I’d just have to make my excuses.
May be there is something good coming out of this, at least I won’t have to cook or take her out to see the city. Goodbye Kavita, nice knowing you!
Think of the last time you broke a rule( a big one, not just ripping the tags off your pillows). Were you burned ,or did things turn out for the best?
The last time I broke the rule was a couple of days ago. We were given a question in our online course, where we were told to give brief answers, no more than 100 words, at first I did write a short answer, but my online friend asked me to write the longer one I had talked about. I made my excuses why I could not, some one else already wrote almost the same as I was thinking about.
When I got a second request, this time it was from the facilitator to write the longer answer, I felt it was safe to do it. I broke the rule but when the person who made the rule wanted me to write the longer answer, I felt confident to break it.
When was the last time you took a risk(big or small), and pushed your own boundaries– socially,professionally, or otherwise? Were you satisfied with the outcome? A few years ago my daughter and I were invited to a get-together party in a friend’s house. There were a lot of people there, food was served I was waiting my turn to get some food, my daughter was ahead of me, when she was about to get the food, one of our old acquaintance stopped her and asked some unexpected questions. I knew nothing about it until we were ready to get into the car, my daughter told me about it and made up her mind never to attend these parties. I was angry, this person always looks for an opportunity to embarrass us. When we got home I dialed his number, he was not at home, I left a message to call me next morning, when my call wasn’t returned by 9 am, I called again, I was firm I told him he must never harass me or my daughter in the presence of strangers. I reminded him if there was anything he wanted to know , he should ask me directly. He tried to make excuses for his behavior but I did not let him. The same person has been doing this kind of irritating thing since we met him, I attempted to stop him, my husband would not let me. This time I felt he had crossed the limit I must prevent him from being a jerk. I was satisfied with the outcome, I was never bothered by him again! k:https://sabethville.wordpress.com/2014/11/24/dp-daily-prompt-
Yes,I turned out pretty good, but the thing I would have liked different was to have my Dad longer than twelve years. To make him proud that despite my flimsy excuses of skipping school. I was able to continue and complete my education.
I would also have liked to be able to live in Rawalpindi rather than Bangladesh. My reason is I was comfortable there and I had friends whom I would have liked to be with,even after the completion of my education.
I have nothing against Bangladesh,my parents are from there. We adapted very quickly,we knew the language,thanks to my Dad who taught us how important it is to know one’s mother tongue. I missed my childhood friends, it’s the only reason and also my Dad’s presence in our lives would have been awesome.
“I know the saying man proposes,God disposes.”
I have kids they were fortunate to complete their education in Canada . This is what I wished and luckily my wish was granted.
