SUNDAY FUN ACTIVITY
I longed for from so many days. But that wasn’t free of cost! I had traded this
freedom with one of the events I wanted to take part in Techzone (Well what Techzone
is, is for another post) I finally got to spend Sunday morning lazing around
without having much to do. Well I did have assignments to complete but that was
for later. All I wanted was some lazy time. But things seldom go as you wish and
soon I got another work to do. To get my voter ID card corrected. I wanted to
get it corrected from so many days but didn’t have time for it. And today they
had come near my home and mom wanted me to get it corrected when I had a chance.
There goes my lazy Sunday!!!
had warned me to pen it down elsewhere first and then to copy to the form. But
since I was on the lazy mode, I directly started filling form and being the
absent minded girl that I am, I wrote it wrong! Trying not to bring this to my
parents’ notice for the fear I might be chided for my over confidence, I slowly
tried applying the whitener. But that damn thing had stopped working. I tried,
tried and tried but it was of no use! Still not willing to give up I slowly
opened the nozzle and turned the whole thing upside down. Since it wasn’t working,
I had assumed that thing to be empty but for the love of God, it started spitting
whole fluid on my hands! I was lucky that there was a waste sheet of paper I
was experimenting with earlier to shield the form from this or I dare not
imagine what the outcome would have been!
caught my mom’s attention and she called out my brother to help me out while removing
the form and keeping it in a safer place. My brother was very careful not to
touch the ink spilled for he didn’t want to get his hands stained where as my
left hand had totally turned white, like I had got painted my hand with a white
paint. I slowly went to the sink and started washing both my hands. I was just
thinking how silly I was to have done such a thing when my brother
screamed “Are you out of your mind?” At first I didn’t understand what he was
talking about but when I followed his eyes, I was equally appalled! Both my
hands were now White as the snow! And I had a function to attend in the evening
where I would be receiving prize! Whitener fluid isn’t something that can be
washed off easily! I imagined going up the stage with these hands and shuddered at the thought! I thought I was doomed…
action. He brought a bottle of kerosene, an old brush and started to wipe off
the marks slowly by frequently dipping the brush in kerosene. He kept saying
that he wouldn’t have done it if I didn’t have a function to attend. It took
him nearly 10 minutes to wash off all the stains. When he was done, it was his
turn to panic. In the process of helping me, he had completely stained his hands.
And I couldn’t help but laugh at the expression. But having seen how I had
messed up, he was careful not to spread the stain further and washed it off effectively unlike me!
back inside where I found mom washing her hands. When I asked what happened,
she said she was trying to help us by putting the nozzle back and now she too
had stains on her hands which refused to go! I and my brother looked at each
other for a second and then both burst out laughing. It was a fun filled
time, all thanks to the whitener (or probably to my absent mind!) And yes! I am
never going to open the nozzle of a whitener ever again in my life!!
