Grrrr...

A pair of huge scissors. That's what I wanted to carry to work today. As usual I forgot. Damn.

For the past two weeks I have been getting bombed by water balloons. It's been happening in a particular alley that leads to my home and which I cannot avoid out of the necessity of reaching home. Some kids have been having the time of their lives. And I have been telling myself everyday that the next time it happens I am going to ring the bell of that particular house and threaten them. Somehow I never seem to have the time to catch up with them.

Yesterday evening I was about 3 yards from home when these gang of young guys on bikes passed by and hit me real hard with balloons. I was on the phone and couldn't do a thing except shout fuckers. And pray really hard that their balls off.

Why can't people let others be? So I have had my share of enjoying Holi and I so do not want to play around. Is that too much to ask? It's like a menace which is out of my hands.

Hence the scissors. I have made up my mind. Whoever happens to throw colours on me, risks getting his locks chopped off. That's a deal.

On second thoughts, maybe I will carry the small scissors lying in my office drawer on the way back.

i used to have the same problem! it was really irritating having to go to work drenched!
completely ruins the mood for holi, which is otherwise, my favouritest festival.

Ron said...

but what annoying irritating behaviour!! thank god they dont celebrate holi down in south india.

AB said...

Sonia: Lo a fellow sufferer! I like it too but only with the powders. Age shows:-)

Ron: I know the bikers will be a problem. Hope not to encounter any of them today (fingers crossed). The funny thing is I like the look of colour drenched people on the street but that's all...

AB said...

You go woman, teach those brats a lesson!

I love all the food, the parties and the colour, but if I was Delhi's Chief Minister I'd lock up all the water balloon throwers. Those nasty things have completely destroyed Holi for me.

thalassa_mikra said...

Oh, and Happy Holi to you too!

Toe Knee said...

Hope you had fun on Holi. Didya dig into some Gujjias?

Essar said...

These choots just use Holi as an excuse to harass women. Assholes.

AB said...

Nikita: Hey you, yes I did. And when the marketing guys there put in a sincere effort to see me technicolor, I fled. And though I did escape them, my already frail shoes gave way. So I was limping back to office with my sandals in my hand:(

Moth: Look what you are missing... my constant cribbings if you had been home;)

Sinusoidally: Ok I didn't need my scissors after all. It rained that day so I was saved. Never been so glad of the rains.

Thalassa: I swear. Please tell Ms Dikshit. It would be a favour:)

Tony: Did dig into them today. Yumm gujias.

Essar: Yes as I told you, I want arms against them!

Jay said...

I suggest you keep a tin of spray paint in your bag. That way you can get them even from a distance - and you won't go to jail for assault with a dangerous weapon!

AB said...

Jay: :-) Now why didn't I think of a spray can

Essar said...
