Tagged: Seven Random Things

The breezy wind in the air brought a tag which landed on my lap send by Rohini.  I have to write seven random things and am wondering where to start and what to write.  After scratching my head for a long time I decided to write about instances right from birth to now except for the last one.

Here are the seven random things about me:

I When I was born, I was the only boy to be born in the hospital that day and when I was growing up, I was told by the sisterhood clan that I was adopted (that I almost believed) which I later came to know was not the case.

II I had my first crush when I was in fourth grade to a girl two years older than me, it was only later that I realized I had a crush on her.  I just kept staring at her foolishly when I saw her for the first time.

III The only time honesty paid when I went to my Hindi teacher and told her that I had received more marks in the answer paper than it accounted for.  She then told me to consider it was a “reward” for I have been honest enough to come forward and tell her.

IV During the first day of college, I went and sat next to second year students, made friends.  It was only later that I came to know that I was sitting in the wrong class and moved to the right one, before the lecture began.

V I happened to mimicked the managers during one of the shifts as part of the celebrations carried out.  The news spread like fire and the managers whom I mimicked asked me for a repeat performance.  One of them actually took place in one of the rooms where the manager was conducting interviews and the other in the department with a larger audience.  One should have seen the look on my face.

VI As of now I have been involved in three accidents involving cycle, bike and car.  Strangely I have ended up getting badly hurt in the cycle accident.  In fact I carry the scars.  The cause of the accident:  Over speeding and failure of brake :)

VII I like to keep in touch with people.  I make it a point to stay in touch with them; with whom I share a zeal for life.  I don’t understand people staying out of touch with whom they share their happier times.  I can never do that.  I need people around me.

The tag can be picked by anyone who think they are up for it, are you?
