Excerpt From An Email

26 Aug

Lately, I’ve been overcome by the feeling that I’m standing tiptoed on a precipice, with the End calling out to me and Life beckoning on the safer side. I know I won’t slip. Not because I’m sure-footed, but because any falling on my part will be entirely intentional, a willful plunge of finality. So here I am, standing on my rapidly tiring toes, taking in the view, wondering which decision will be borne to fruition first. They shouldn’t accord such power to us mortals, really.

    First they make the grass look greener on the other side and then, they put the onus of not being tempted on us as well. Not fair!

    Depends on whether the end is really the beginning or not. Beginning of the journey of togetherness. Here`s to a happy ending! May you take the plunge and soon! 🙂
    I hope you know what I mean..

    Hi OJ. Do you know where phantasmagoria (rediffblog) has gone? I read her blog often…and she hasnt blogged for long…Was wondering…Do you know?

    D: True, true. And no, I wish I knew what became of Ph, but she does do the disappearing act every so often. I like the pink D monster better than the blue, just fyi.

    Piper: Eh? 😕 This wasn’t about me when it was written, but now I see that it could be. What I would love to know is how *you* know.

    That’s well written suicidal tendencies

    and btw, after having read the new post on Mad Momma`s, I`m wondering if you`re annoyed as well? Should I delete the post I wrote,using the best line from yours? Tell me, if I should. I`ll do it right away.

    Oh, I’m facing an identity crisis here. The pink monster D is me. The blue monster D asking for that lost blogger is not me 😦

    Iz: You’re alive! 🙂 The suicide scribbles aren’t even here yet.

    Piper: You’ve been tracking my life?!! 😯 Chill, it’s all good. 😉 And no, girlfriend, I promise I’m not annoyed. You asked, I said yes, and I have no clue what you’re talking about over at MM’s.

    To the Pink & Blue Ds: Eeps! 😕 Would Blue D be so kind as to display herself/himself differently? And Blue D, no, I don’t know where Ph went. Pink D, I’ll keep in mind that you’re square, pink and unique. 🙂

    err.. for the record.. neither does MM. What gives?

    ok I`m so sorry for all the confusion I created. And I take back my words forthwith. It was written without thinking. The intention was not to hurt or annoy anybody and I`m hoping no one is. The intention wasnt even to snoop. I was just going through the comments on Mad momma`s post( Just a few qstns) to see if she had responded to my comment or not. And I happened to read her response to yours. That was all. It made me smile. That`s all. I dont mean no harm to nobody. 😦 Oh god! I feel so awful Maybe I`ll just keep my trap shut from now on.. 😦

    MM: Comprehension lives above. 🙂

    Piper: I’m sure you didn’t mean to do any of those things you’ve mentioned. But if you bump into a conversation between friends without a context to fit it into, you’re bound to end up with half-baked information. No? 🙂

    This post, ummm-errr, i didn’t really like
    But the comments were a hilarious hike
    All very nicely tackled
    Misunderstandings neatly shackled
    Stumped! Last line’s gone on a strike!

    Aunty G: You just don’t like anything that you think has made me sad. 😉 Awww, blog-momma, where would I be without you?

Here's a bar of chocolate. Now talk to me. :)
