It’s already 10 pm, our family of three are done with dinner. Finally, my chores are done for the day. I hope to read few pages of a book. Let me first take a deep breath. Phew!
I have just opened it and my 2 years toddler, Penguin, jumped over me. I so wanted to whisper scream that husband of mine named Mr. Fabulous as – What? Why? I had just sat. Remember the sluggish one and he tagged behind toddler.
Ahh!! I want to hide away somewhere. God, dear almighty, are you watching me? Can you please bestow me some superpowers? Universe conspired and am blinded by light. I can’t see anything, but there is distinctive petrichor lingering around. Oh no! did I die? Before I could ramble more, I hear…
Ask away, what superpower you want? Stop thinking boloney. I am your God.
Earlier I wanted a thousand things and now I am blank. Few moments later greed creeps in my system.
Thanking him right away. I begged the almighty for few superpowers.
How I wish I can stretch my hands and get the plates from top shelf. Imagine feeding toddler and getting that wipe from bedroom. If I could stretch like Plastic man, I could have saved all trouble.
I am tired of stepping on small toys creeping out at night. Once I can get night vision, those toys won’t break, my foot would be saved and Penguin won’t cry next morning. Hell, I could even enjoy reading a physical book other that eBooks after little one sleeps.
What fun it would be to control your spouse and his clan! Can I do that with his boss too? I want a work-life balance. Penguin is 2 and acts like teen. I can use this power well.
Every human needs it. I am no exception. I want to let-go many things, give second chances but patience evaporates fast.
Feel good inside out
Is there are superpower like this? I hope it does. Living to everyone’s expectations, having lots of hopes form others and subsequent friction it pushes us to dark alleys. I want to feel happy not because of situations but choices.
That’s surprising! I remember you asking time to stop when your crush was on screen. Then one day you cried with Penguin because you were unable to understand him, asking me to make you omni-linguist.
Embarrassed me wanted to add get-invisible-when-wish to the list now. But I know I really don’t want those now. I could only nod and imagined the almighty smirk before … Ouch! It hurts! Who poked my eye?
Are you hurt Maa? I want to pee.
I was day dreaming again. Mr. Fabulous yelled from kitchen “Baby what to cook today?” Fixing Penguin, I took a step towards kitchen and paused. Hesitating for a while I lifted my right hand to open the refrigerator door standing in bedroom. At that moment …
I hope you enjoyed reading this post.
