As from today, I’m officially in holidays. It feels cool though not really because I’m in holidays but rather because it is a huge relief that the exams are finally over. They’ve actually kept us in exams for 6 weeks! That’s just so unfair.
Yesterday night I was just too excited. I’d have a multiple choice paper in the morning and given that I had already revised everything the previous day, it was practically holidays-already. Obviously, when the morning did come, spirits were flying a little lower. But I must’ve been pretty relaxed because some.. umm.. unusual things happened today. And I’ve been talking/chatting/MSNing about it with my best friend as you can see.
“While on the bus, on my way to the exams, I saw something totally awesome. I saw a parrot on the backseat of a car, which was passing next to the bus. A true bird it was too!”
“Oh my god! Was it flying or in a cage?”
“Neither flying nor in a cage. It was just standing and staring out of the back windscreen.”
“Oh that place where people put the decorations and fluffy cotton things? You sure it wasn’t a ‘peluche?'”
“Pfffft… I’m not dumb. Not that dumb anyway.”
“Yeah, but maybe you should wear glasses, lol.”
Indeed, the first strange and unusual thing I saw today was a true parrot, alive and all, staring out of a car’s windscreen.
“Bus conductor had a chat with me. He saw ‘RCPL’ on my student ID and asked me whether I thought I had a chance to be a laureate. I said none whatsoever. Then he continued, telling me that in Mauritius right now, there’s no future. It’s worth it only if I become a politician. And that I should not return to the country after my tertiary studies.”
You have to agree that it’s not everyday that a conductor will come and have a chat with one of his passengers and tell the latter his political views on things and all, right?
“While I was having a bath…”
“Which does happen from time to time.”
“… I saw a MUR200 note slipping out from my trousers’ backpocket. When it eventually fell, I retrieved it and saw another note, this time a MUR100 one, folded in between the MUR200 note. How cool’s that? Grand total of MUR300!”
“Grrr. You’re making me jealous.”
Weird, surprising and lucky day. All in one. Ah, hols; hope boredom doesn’t creep in.
