The Royal Bath

Been too busy at work and after the long hours, been too tired at home to even sit in front of the system. Off late, I have been planning my day while bathing. Was trying to give direction to my thoughts today. Too many things had to be done at work. Had to plan a speech for some function, had to co-ordinate with the vendors, the photographer and many things. I am not the event manager for this organization. No, I am not and certainly I also have to focus on doing what I was hired for, as that is the main bread and butter. Thus, went the thoughts and thus went the time and suddenly, I realised I am running late and still in the bathroom.

At supersonic speed, got dressed and then prayed, at supersonic speed again. God, the universal kick back had to adjust to my timings.

I was waiting for the traffic to slow down for me to cross the road and get in to an auto. Suddenly, I saw an empty auto at the other side of the road. The driver looked at me. I suddenly smile at him- a smile, which conveyed, “Oh dear, it doesn’t make sense waving and asking you to stop as I don’t know how long it is going to take to cross the road and I don’t know whether I’ll get another one so soon but I hope you know you are the need of the hour.” The auto passed and so did many vehicles. Finally, I managed to cross the road and there, I see him waiting for me patiently for the last 2 minutes. Somehow, he made my day and somehow, I got time to blog about it.

In the wings: Some test is coming up at the Organization level for some initiatives. I heard it would be on mathematical abilities, analytical, logical and some more …cal abilities. The only mathematical calculation I know is how much my salary would be if I get a hike of 20% and how much would it be if it were30%. Hope I pass.

Regarding the frequency, I think old age is catching up with me. Most blogs last 3 yrs.

Hi,Arunima..LOL-the best thoughts do come while bathing.For me,even ideas for posts for blog-pity is,I never remember to carry a pen n paper to jot them down.(Now,that'd have to be waterproof ink and special paper,I guess)...the 'auto'situation-lucky you,that he waited-most'd have just moved on..re. the tests coming up,let me know if u need any practice.:)Try this link,for eg: http://www.syvum.com/iq/

I always keep getting late no matter what hour of the day it is and somehow or the other things do keep getting in place. I kinda enjoy all the tension of rushing in the rush-hour. Of course, sometimes it acts as a reality check whether the luck is with me today or not. Hehe ;)
