'Never say die' attitude

Thanks to burgeoning workload, I have not been able to enjoy some of the finer things in life......mainly my morning quota of tea.

Come to workplace, stare into the PC screen, go for lunch, stare into PC screen, go for tea, stare into the PC screen...... I think I have memorized the total number of pixels on my monitor screen. And ya......I did manage to get ‘some’ work done in between!

After a self-imposed hiatus of (few) loooonnnngg days (phull of er..... ‘work’), I happened to visit my usual haunt of a cafeteria today for a cuppa tea. Nothing could have prepared me for the enthusiastic welcome which they provided.

The vendor had the tea coupon ready even before I could open my mouth. The lady asked with apparent concern if I was keeping well or not. Well.....I realized that I look like a zonked out zombie (all zzzzzzzzzzzzzs) without my elixir of life. Then it was the turn of the tea supplier to show concern over my apparent road to thin-ity. Wow....see....... I don’t even have to try hard to reduce :) .Ran into a couple of my friends who seriously enquired if I was in love. I gave a wry smile and actually replied in affirmative - I can hardly wait to let the rest of the world know that I have fallen in love.. :) - and had a hard time putting a phullu-stop to the barrage of questions that followed


Bottom line – addiction has its effects felt

The cafetaria's business might have gone down terribly because of your absence. :-)
That's why their fond welcome.
Their cash cow, you are!!
