My Life List

I have a life list because Readers Digest says so. I believe in the written word except for the India Today Survey which says that 30% of the women who cheat, do it with their neighbors. Either the survey is wrong or I have been living in the wrong neighborhood all my life time. These are the mentionable things which I would like to accomplish in my life time.

1. Run a Marathon: My feeing about running swings between great passion and boredom. I have run two half marathons and the longest I have run is 30 KM. However I would like to run one full which is 42 plus K to see how it feels. It will also allow me to write an embellished account.

2. Write a book: When I met Radhika, I told her that I am going to write a book one day. She believed and married me. I have not done any thing except decide the title. Technically it could have been breach of contract but she chose to stay with me any way. Seeing no hope of any situational change, I have decided to go ahead with my writing. The only problem is that I want to do it the other way round. I would like to go on a world tour on book promotion, give cerebral lectures and participate in book signing before even I write the book. I also promise not to think about the money I would earn till I complete the book.

If you know of any publishers who are agreeable to my plan, you know where to find me.

3. Make my bed: I would like to make the bed in such a way that Radhika cannot find fault at all. In fact, I would like to get an Oscar for bed making from my wife. I am not talking about life time achievement but once would do. I am a realistic person you see. Countless mornings, I would have spent more than 4 hours making the bed and call Radhika for inspection. She would walk in and show me 63 wrinkles I have forgotten to smoothen out, the pillow cushions which is at the wrong angles. To my amateur bed setter eyes, the pillows would look perfect in their setting till I figures that the wrong angle is with respect to Pyramids. She would also point to the TV remotes, which I swear would have been put away from me. I think they develop wings and fly back in to the bed. I do not blame them, I feel like to doing it most of the times.

If you want to know the unmentionable life list, you can meet up with me. If you belong to the male species then you need to bring a beer. If you are a female, just come.
