Okay. So there is this girl in my office. Normal, nothing special, in fact, I don’t know her. Not even her name. All I know about her is that she exists! Not “exists”, as in, I see her everyday even. “Exists”, as in, I know she is there. Get it?
The point, however, is that, there is some WEIRD connection between us. I mean it. A couple of months back she was wearing a shirt that I have in my cupboard too. I thought that was a meek coincidence. After all, with the NUMBER of brands available out there, who would have thought two people in the same office buy the exact same shirt, the exact same colour and the exact same size? I shirked off the incident.
And then it happened again! Last week, after MONTHS of searching, I found the dream shirt – A red checks shirt at Provogue, the perfect fit and perfect colours. Oh, I thought I had attained Moksh when I bought that shirt. I was waiting for an occasion to wear it, but what with all festivals falling on holidays, I was planning for a pseudo occasion like say Lord Krishna’s Birthday’s Hangover Day (Day after Janmashthmi) or the Eve of Lord Ganesha’s Birthday (Day before Ganesh Chaturthi).
And what do I see? That girl wore the EXACT same shirt yesterday! EXACT same DREAM shirt. Just like that. Without giving me a chance to display my prized possession.
Creepy I tell ya. Some weird connection. And the timing! So precise!*Shudder again*
The worst part, however, is that, the first time I saw this girl, I had judged her. And you know me, na? I had judged her bad. So, now I am alternately feeling guilty and confused. If this connection is a good thing, I need to do something about it, like Joey’s Hand Twin in Vegas. If it’s a bad thing, its just creepy and gives me shudders!
So much for judging people!
Anyway. That’s it. That’s all I wanted to tell you!
Oh wait, I hope you weren’t expecting something useful from this post! Oh My God. You were? Weren’t you? I am SO sorry. Next time, I will be more prudent in the use of this space! 😉
And also, the title has got nothing whatsoever to do with the post because the incident is neither a paradox nor an oxymoron. I just realized yesterday how different these two terms were and how people use them the wrong way without knowing. Just wanted to show off. Sorry again! 😉
Have a Tralalalalaaa Ekdum MASST wala Jhakaas Weekend!
Goods & Byes.
Edit to Add: I just re-read the post after hitting the Publish button and realized how crazy I sounded. I thought I should just delete the post, but then in a moment of profound awakening, it occurred to me that life is so much more fun with crazy moments! And besides, it’s a Friday – Sab Maaf Hai! 😀
