My Perfect Day...

Time is a cunning companion. Too little of it and you are over-stressed, too much of it and you know not what to do. Today, time decided to be generous with me. I emailed, worked, ate and time stuck with me, my faithful companion holding my hand. So, I decided for a change that, instead of clicking "Send" on yet another hardly necessary email, I would spend some time introspecting. That sounded too dull for me and so, I decided I would build a day for myself - a perfect day.

If I were to make a day perfect, within boundaries of feasibilities, how would it be?

Waking up with a smile on my face because the alarm clock shows 10.30 AM. Stretching and yawning luxuriously without wondering if I am late to work...

Hot filter coffee and golden brown toasts with a generous cover of marmalade. Sweet and crispy cornflakes in a colorful bowl nearby with one of those cute little bottles used for serving milk...

TV during breakfast - even Vanakam Thamizhagam will do (I don't ask for much :))

Sunlight streaming through the white delicate curtains, lighting up the faces of the people in the room, brightening their smiles and caressing their cheeks - people I love around me, relaxed and happy...

And that's how I would like my perfect day in Lex would begin! And just when images of my perfect day swirl all around me, time runs away from me...maybe some other day, I will build the rest of my perfect day!

Well, RS, you don't ask for much in a perfect day. Perfectly attainable everyday except for the waking up at 10.30 Am part..:)

Having someone prepare the breakfast and keep it ready by the time u wake up is not entirely possible...unless k is made to volunteer though :-)

'If you knew Time as well as I do,' said the Hatter, 'you wouldn't talk about wasting it. It's him.'

'I don't know what you mean,' said Alice.

'Of course you don't!' the Hatter said, tossing his head contemptuously. 'I dare say you never even spoke to Time!'

'Perhaps not,' Alice cautiously replied: 'but I know I have to beat time when I learn music.'

'Ah! that accounts for it,' said the Hatter. 'He won't stand beating. Now, if you only kept on good terms with him, he'd do almost anything you liked with the clock. For instance, suppose it were nine o'clock in the morning, just time to begin lessons: you'd only have to whisper a hint to Time, and round goes the clock in a twinkling! Half-past one, time for dinner!'
