So two exes both uncomfortably interlinked wanted to meet up on the same day at the same time. No to both? I think so. For different reasons though.
The heat continues its long drawn devious scheme to drive us all completely insane. They’ll be carting people to lunatic asylums by the truckload soon in Cal. Never thought I’d be missing Canadian weather, but 40 degree weather and 85% humidity does that to you. Got off work early today and decided on the spur of the moment to go to the Jain temple at Belgachia. Got off the metro, walked around in the heat and reached the damn place with my tongue hanging out like a dog’s, only to be told by the sleepy security guard inside the gates that the temple is only open on major holidays. Clearly, there is a lot to be said for planning vs spontaneity.
Someone committed suicide by jumping on the metro rail tracks AGAIN. This one was at Kalighat. We literally have one metro-suicide a week these days. It doesn’t seem like a great way to go to me. I mean, not only are you offing yourself, you’re causing about an hour’s delay and inviting the curses of thousands of people on your departed soul.
45 minutes. I counted- 45 minutes is the time it takes to clear a dead body off the tracks and for life to continue like it doesn’t matter a whit. You are merely a replacable cog for the most part. Harsh but true.
