The Idle Mind

Normally, it takes about half an hour for me to complete my bath ... not because i'm a female .. nor do i have many bathing rituals .. but because it's an opportunity for my mind to go on "idle" mode.

Taking a bath is a routine .. it's something you do daily for as long as you can remember. There is nothing to think about unless you have got a choice of which soap and shampoo to use or perhaps you want to study the tiles, but are you going to do that daily? Hmmm, maybe the tiles on mondays, pipes on tuesdays, shower curtain on wednesdays. Anyhow, the point is, if you are a normal person, there is nothing much thought stimulating with taking a bath, so what is the mind to do?

Someone I Can't Have

I have been crushing on this particular guy for months. Ever since I first laid eyes on him, I just could not stop myself from following his every move. The way he speaks and conducts himself. I mean he is not exactly the drop-dead gorgeous hunk of a man but he sure tickles my weirdest fancy.

Yep, am officially smitten ... Have not really felt this way before. Sure, I have had crushes every now and then but usually they don't affect me as much as this one is making me feel right now. But as much as I would like to stay smitten and to relish on this wonderful cloud-nine like feeling, I need to get things right .... he is not for me. By that, I don't mean that the guy is married. He is unattached, very much single and available. So what's my problem?

I don't belong to his league. His lifestyle differs from mine drastically.

Sighhhh. The guy's not someone I can have, as much as I hope I could ...
