Open Letter season

Dear Lady-who-sat-next-to-me-in-the-autorickshaw,

Nice perfume, but must you be swimming in it? For once, I didn’t mind those toxic exhaust fumes from the vehicles around.

Unbearably,
Me.
                ***************

Dear People-who-make-fun-of-Rajnikanth-and-‘Sivaji’,

I couldn’t care less, so shut it. There never was and never will be a bigger entertainer than him. And you know it.

Superstar-fan’ly,
Me.

                ***************

Dear Folks-who-think-Harry-Potter-is-for-kids,

Grow up.

I-wish-I-were-at-Hogwarts-ly,
A Muggle born.

                ***************

Dear Mr.Edward Lear,

I’m extremely sorry. For what? For this –

There was once a steel box on the table,
It was shiny, sleek and definitely very able.
But it only had rocks,
For ’twas just a box!
Moral? Nothing! This ain’t no Aesop’s fable!

Un-Limerickally,
Me.

                ****************

Dear Missing-candle-at-home,

WHERE THE HECK ARE YOU WHEN I NEED YOU THE MOST?!!

In the dark,
Me.

                ****************

Dear Second-green-light-on-the-modem,

Stop blinking and stay put on green. I have a blog to update!

Unblinkingly,
Me.

  2. On 1) Oh! I so hate the ‘Musk’ scent, the intensity can actually travel 2 miles!

    On 3) I don’t like harry potter and I think I’m enough grown and that’s why I dont like it 😉

  3. :).

    Loved the “And you know it” part at the end for #2.

    #3: My 6 year old happens to be into Harry Potter movies. Strange. Gets scared silly but still wants to see it again and again and again. Also, the guy is still in school till the end (i think?). Ok a special school, but he shows up in uniform, gets pushed around by teachers.

    Psychologically I can’t seem to overcome these two at my age. But thats my problem – as I know people older than me who are into HP. Nothing wrong. I know – it’s just me

  4. Agree entirely with you on the perfumes. But not quite with Rajnikanth and HP. The Lear and the candle are nice. The modem – well, you have put in words what so many would have wanted to convey (including me). Hope the modem understands 🙂

  6. Dear lady-who-travels-in-the-bus-along-with-me,
    Please do read, the post put up, on Priya’s blog page…When there are people, swimming in perfume, why don’t you try atleast sprinkling a few drops of rose water on yourself 😐 Why do you have to choke me to death, every day….Every evening is like a rebirth

  7. KrishAshok – Comment retrieved! 🙂

    Aparna – what?! you dont read HP?! o my god! :-O

    Arunk – 🙂 welcome to the blog! it’s tough explaining HP to a non-believer 😉 so I wont try. Reminds me of this time when my husband read a gist of all 7 books in some magazine and announced proudly that he’s read all 7 books!

  8. Sathej – 🙂 My modem and I have a love-hate relationship – I try to love it but it goes kaput once in a while forcing me to hate it..

    Sharanyan – The modem didnt blink at all! Me is thinking of posting an apology to the modem for offending its sensitivities (and lights) so it starts working again 😦

    Fleiger – you bet! 🙂 btw, I havent been to your blog yet, so I wdnt know.. made the big announcement yet?

  12. Fab limerick. Glad to come by your blog through the Jalsa Jilpa one .

    P.S : Maybe the overwhelming perfume smell is better than godawful sweat smell. Sigh. Why can’t people smell themselves ?

  13. @ Priya : thanks for all the blog praise. thank you. thank you. thank you ( as thalaivar would say)
    Here’s to being Blog-Her buddies.
    *I’m just very kicked about using the word Blog-Her so i make excuses to include that in my sentences. I thought I was super witty to come up with it only to realize that it’s a major women’s blogger forum in the US. Bah
