Tomorrow is Thursday/Tuesday
Routines make life move smoothly. And routines also make life feel like a mundane grind.
This morning, as I stepped off the bed, my right foot first (one has a good day, this way, fengshui says) a feeling of utter dread gripped me as I saw the dusting, cooking and myriad other chores looming in front of me.
What could I do to make the day different?
The most obvious way is to not do the chores (which invariably leads to a bigger mess to take care of, later).
Yes, I know.
I am going to make tomorrow different by pretending that tomorrow is actually yesterday, that is it is the day that occurred two days ago. I know I am going to have a lot of fun. Tomorrow is Thursday which means that I shall be treating this day as a Tuesday.
The most interesting thing to do on Tuesday? Of course it is Vodafone Tuesday, buy one ticket and get one free. I shall go to the theatre tomorrow and demand a free ticket for the one I buy. I know it is going to be very embarrassing so I will not go alone. I will take Sherry along with me. This is a girl who lives in my society and she mistakenly believes that I am her friend though I have never been guilty of conveying this impression to her. Anyway I will invite her for the movie tomorrow and I am sure she will be cured of any friendly feeling for me henceforth.
I shall also prevent my family members from eating non-vegetarian food tomorrow. Thursday is the day they gorge on seafood, our family is infested with foodies. Imagine their consternation when I insist that it is Tuesday, the day we neither cook nor eat non-vegetarian food at home.
It promises to be an interesting day.
Have you ever felt the suffocating grips of a monotonous schedule? What did you do different?
