Chocolate Brownies and Shakira

Saturday, May 13, 2006


Some people, like me, have quite a few memories which they surely remember at the very thought of chocolate brownies. It may be a first date, or a 'fantasy meet' with a cute net friend. These sinful fudgy thingies are so sweet and delectable when associated with one occassion and suddenly turn bitter when they remind us of those days that we are trying so hard to erase from our memory( which we so often curse because it remembers things that are better forgotten and vice versa)!

And then there are songs. Yes, of course. Who doesn't have those befitting soundtracks for certain phases of their life. I remember my own and its terribly difficult to ever listen to these songs without visualizing yourself in the circumstances that you were once in, that time when you came to relate with that song. mmm...

What about clothes? That cute top that you had worn to this party where you met that someone who made you dream about them for hours. Or that bracelet which, even though broken, preserves so many memories that you wouldn't trade it even for a gold biscuit.

What was the subject of conversation that day? What song was playing in the cafe when your eyes met? What perfume were you wearing that time? How we remeber such details that tickle us later and make us crave for them to come back. If we could only live those moments of ultimate rapture just once more. And carefully avoid all the thorny parts.

Couldn't agree more... A silly joke you hear, a particular topic of discussion, a movie, a book.. silly incongruous things that give you that heart rending feeling when those special memories associated with them come rushing back which you wouldn't trade for the world, despite the heartache.. And you crave to have those good times once more.... I couldn't have expressed it better myself.. Great post..

Every rose has its thorn. Thats the way life is too. What fun would it be to live a life if it were all rosy, the struggles one has to endure build chracter, they make u what u are. But yeah its quite difficult to erase those moments the more u try the more deeper they get rooted.

the other day, one of my friends.. lets call her theeta.. dropped her purse and it fell open.. and out fell the usual fake-up.. oops.. make-up kit and stuff that no GUY wud EVER understand as to why should it be stuffed in a purse and stuff that wud nearly fill my entire 2 storey-cupboard! so yeah.. also fell down a bunch of neatly stapled bus tickets, cinema tickets, restaurant bills, old gum covers, marlboro pack.. (now theeta was sincere to Gold Flake.. Marlboro was a shock! :P)

so me and my friend ash gave her a "what the hell" look and she said.. "oh.. these tickets and bills are all frm my dates!".. and she actually had noted down behind the tickets as to which ticket was taken with which guy to which place and on what date! phew! talk about preserving memories! but then we both were still curious cz shez not settled with a guy for like 4 yrs now.. then she said.. oh.. thts y the marlboro pack.. so i dont miss his breath whn hez not here! and she opened the marlboro pack and there was just one old marl cig and rest of it was stacked with bus tickets, train tickets, movie tckets and restaurant bills.. u can easily guess whose name wud be behind these bills :P

so yeah.. another attempt to understnd the feminine brain went in vain! :P
