Have you ever dreamt of being recognised by random people?
Like we usually spot celebrities?
Quit smiling to yourself and admit it because I very well know that deep within our hearts all of us commoners dream of being a part of the crème de la crème of some or the other community or society. We all have our dreams and being recognised by our names is one of mine and this turned true. I had my moment of spotting this Monday and no, I did not spot anybody but it was the other way around.
Work has been very hectic lately and I have been leaving early for office, this Monday I took lift from a friend (Lets call her N). She was incidentally dropping another friend (let’s call her R) of hers at the Station before we continued our run to the office. One Tuesday N called me and we had this conversation
She: remember the friend who was there in the car with us on Monday?
She: She says she knows you.
Me: Is it? How? (I tried recollecting her face but couldn’t place her)
She: She says she reads your blog
Me: Hmmmm! (I smiled at that)
She: I told R that it isn’t possible because S doesn’t have time for these things but guess what? She knows your name (though the surname was wrong).
She: Then I said that you are working and have a kid at home so you don’t have time for blogging etc. But you know what?
Me: What? *Still Smiling*
She: R said your son’s name! Do you really write?
Me: Ya I do.
She: *gushing* where do you find the time?
I changed the topic but needless to say I was a little excited. I mean to be recognised by a stranger because of your blog is surely a high for me. To top it all R told N that she refers my blog for book reviews which however sent me on a guilt trip because I have not reviewed books from many days. Another interesting fact here is that R herself doesn’t blog but knows all about me, ya she made a comment on me being a Salman Khan fan *wink* *wink*.
Though the fact that a complete stranger knows all about me and may be my family was a little daunting but I guess that is what I have chosen to write about so I should not be complaining. So R if you are reading this, a big shout out for you, though I might not have shown this but you gave me a high and some excitement :-)
So how have you guys been? I know I have been absent for quite some time but what to do buried under work and though I am brimming with stories to share (I met Scribby) and reviews to write but not getting time…..even this post has been squeezed out God knows how! But then I needed to update this space for my own sanity :-)
Hoping the next week will be better….keep well and please share in the comments that one moment of your life which made you feel like a celebrity. Please!!! :-)
P.S. Ahem!!! As far as the title goes, well.........do I really need to explain it? ;-)
