A day at work

After a long struggle I somehow managed to write this blog and you want to know between whom? It is just between me and myself. Yes, I don’t know why, I always get the time to blog with a nice subject in hand ready; I still didn’t feel like taking the pen in hand or more realistically opening the word document.

I got a bit worried too – Did I lose interest in blogging?

I still haven’t found the answer but I’m happy to be here for now :)

Just like any other day I came to work and was surprised to see my friend already there. Fine you might ask me what is the surprise in it, well nothing much but she used to come 30 mins to an hr after I reach work and I was really happy for 2 reasons
1.Not having any pending work for the day.
2.I can have a small chat with my friend until my boss appears.

Before I explain further I’d like to tell about her [my friend]. She’s Priya- as sweet and simple as her name is. She is not something extra ordinary but I have always admired her for her plus and her minus has petrified me too. I always admire people who are bold and straight forward and especially who don’t cry that often. Priya is one such person. Though she is younger than me, I’ve learnt a lot from her, to be more specific.. on how to deal things, be it personal or professional. She being the only kid at home I thought she’ll be a spoilt brat for sure and being younger than me, I could never guess that she could be really sensible.

As a friend you have 100% freedom to point out her mistakes for which she won’t get offended at the same time she doesn’t care to bother about what others think or say (unless you are her friend) if she feels it is not her mistake. A very helpful, caring and most supportive friend any one would ever get. When I’m really upset a small chat with her will make me feel better for the whole day, so that I really don’t think about it again. I have never seen her dull or never felt she’s boring for that she’ll always have something interesting to share!!!! In simple a very energetic, smart and pretty girl.

Now don’t predict that something went seriously wrong with such a sweet person… Nope.

Coming back to the current day…. Yes I was happy as I saw her early at work. I just switched my PC on and rushed to her with a broad smile (which I later realized need not have been that broad) saying ‘Hi’, the next thing she said was not really that pleasant because I saw tears in her eyes for the first time and she said “My dog passed away.....” When I heard it for the first time I really didn’t understand the impact like many of you who read this. All that was bothering me was..... she was crying, a person who doesn’t cry that easily. I tried to console her after she explained me how it happened and tried to divert her a bit talking about shopping, movies and other similar things that is of common interest to both of us.

Later the same day during a chat with her close friend I found her doggy was more like a sibling to her (as she doesn’t have one) and her absence will affect her a lot. Only then it struck me, yaa… she mentions every now and then about her pet. It made me think for a while… how terrible it’ll be for her to go back home and to not find her in her usual place.


Fine, I told myself I’ll make sure that I keep talking some nonsense so that she’ll get distracted. I opened gtalk to ping her .......................

Her status message startled me ................. made my eyes wet ............ and it took a while for me to forget those lines.

It said, “ You are still my first love”
