Turning the wheel…

…..when the blue water plays with the shore to tell something…..

I was so dumb…!

Posted by Rewa Smriti on April 2, 2007

Brings back a lot of memories of small incidents of my school days. It was a winter season. I was in class 7th. It was our daily ruting to get up early morning so that we could reach for PET class on time at 5:30am. That time we had only one hostel for girls called Saraswati house in my school.

Anyway, that winter night me and my friend Swarna told by one of our senior Shilpi didi from the first batch that ‘you both try to get up early or ek baar uthane se uth jana.’ Then we replied…..’hann didi ham uth jayenge.’(yes didi, we will get up) Didi said ‘dekhte hein.’ 🙂 Because she knew about both of us very well and she was quite sure that we will not get up before them. But that night we both planed well and decided to wake up a little early so that we will do some study, also we will wake them up. Accordingly we did same, by mistake Swarna woke up early morning before me and woke me up. It was still dark in out side, as I was still feeling sleepy so she passed paste and brush to me and also she told me ‘don’t sleep more’ 😉 and I just replied slowly ‘theek hai’.

We both went into bathroom to brush our teeth. Suddenly, I asked her why foam is not coming to my brush, she said ‘sone se nahi aayega, brush karogi tab hi aayega.’ I said ‘kar to rahi hun’ and again after some time she was asked same question by me. Then she told me ‘dekho mera to aa raha hai’ and she asked me ‘have you taken paste?’ I said almost unconsciously, yea! I hav taken paste, but after some time I felt and found the smell of something else then I asked her to check it. She also felt same and started to laugh at me.

Nevertheless, she did a very good job! She went back to room, woke them up and said everybody about this. When I entered, all were laughing at me with her as it was natural and I tried to protect myself. So, I said everybody that ‘isne mujhe diya tha’ and the moment she started to laugh, that time I thought of scolding her but she was continuously laughing at me. Truly speaking I too was laughing with them at myself. It was so unexpected. I didn’t know what to say. How I could laugh at myself, but I did so!

Dear readers, you know what did I take instead of paste? I took boroplus instead of paste. 😛 Thinking back, I was so dumb, why didn’t I take paste! But that morning something was definitely wrong with me. Believe it or not, but after this incident, it never happened again with me. I am missing those days now and feel to say….“koi louta dey mere beetey huey din..!”

  5. nice and naturaly honest confession of this innocent but having some age; mind.”boroplus rakhne ka yahi natija hoga na”.so remain as natural as possible to defy these incidents.


  6. Fultoos funny !

    May this be the reason that, the Colgate (Oh, Boroplus!) smile works as ‘Boroplus’ for others’ small hurts and wounds !

    Keep smiling.
