I'll take boring

image As a child ... and as a teen even ... well lets just say the pre-25 years :), I used to love the thrill of life. The excitement of it all ... resigning from the job to give the CAT, not knowing what I am going to do next, walking around in the city with friends ... carefree, without a care in the world. The one thing I looked down upon despised, was the normal, routine rote of a life that my folks and all the 40 something's were following. How boring!! How can one live a life knowing ahead their every move?

I then touched 25. Finished by Post Graduation. Got a job. Welcome to the real world Neo.

With my risk appetite going down every coming year, and with my blood pressure going up, it becomes a necessity to know these things. To follow the simplicity of a routine. No surprises. Give me my daal-roti and I will gladly leave the Chicken Makhanwalla's of the restaurants. Yeah ... I would love having a normal, boring life for once. We as human beings are constantly striving to achieve that normalcy ... and so few of us actually manage to achieve it. As Fido Dido would have you believe ... Normal is boring .. hey give me boring, and let me be :-)

Oh so much like a droopy dog!

Normal is boring... yeah it is. But spicing up your normal life isn't that difficult. May be you need to be a sales guy to keep that mad adrenalin rush going over and over again. :-)

For us, routine is no less adventurous. And these days I spice it even more by appearing for job interviews, grilling those grey haired pomps and screwing things up. He he... Life's good.

Kida - I want you to read "Losing my Virginity", "Business Stripped Bare" or the smaller "Screw it! Let's do it!" ( take your pick!) by Richard Branson.

Let's discuss it once you read it. It will give you all your lost 'barood' back ;)

@mayur - hmmm ... I should take some feathers out of your furry hat my friend :)

@Biggie - The question at hand that worries me is .. do I want my 'barood' back :-)) ... or am I better of with rote!?! I will read it though.

So, you grew up??
Its part of a life - you hate your parent's lifestyle and you end up being them really soon! :-)

Life is all about fun, just that the meaning of fun changes as the birthdays start stacking up!
