Who Blue my Life?

Some people claim to know the precise point when their life turned topsy-turvy; the poignant moment in time-space continuum that is the mother of all life-changing moments.

But I don't.

Was it the moment I met you? No, it can't be because the only thing I remember from that day is the colour of your shirt and my saree. Maybe I do remember the conversation, and the tears that followed but i prefer to act dumb now. I remember just Blue.

Was it the moment we celebrated my birthday? Naaah. You forgot to buy flowers and a card but managed brownie points by walking in with a chocolate cake. But all I see is turquoise blue skirt twirling in my mind's eye and a blue bowl of potato pancakes batter.

Was it the moment we celebrated our anniversary? No, it can't be. We almost weren't going to until I reminded you the date was not a week away. The blue-green shirt and the blue saree partied under a bright blue sky. Maybe I do remember the taste of oysters and lobsters. Then again, maybe I don't.

Some people claim to know the decisive moment when everything in life made perfect sense.
I don't.

Maybe it was when my world turned Blue.

Graffiti on the wall

One "Oh @#*%" is enough to screw up a 100 "Atta Girl!".

Wish I didn't have to learn this the hard way :(
