Do you enjoy getting caught?
“It’s so hard to lose a single gram. I run and I watch my diet. I do not cheat.” She told her nutritionist. He smiled and said, “What about those butter and nutmeg cookies you baked yesterday and posted the picture on Instagram? Did you give them away to friends?” She was caught red-handed. Too hard to say no to cookies.
She said, “Mumma, chocolate?”. Her mother gave her one piece. Two year olds should not have so much sweet and she hid the bar behind her and said, “It’s over, baby.” The little one finished the piece and went all around, grabbed the bar and said, “Mumma chocolate?”. She was caught red-handed. Too hard to control these little ones and say no.
She had just broken up with him. Two days and no conversations. Texts or calls. Smileys or questions. She was checking the phone every single minute to see if he will call. The next day, there was a reply to her text. She was caught red-handed. Too hard to hold back emotions.
On his morning walk, he went to a nearby park. As he walked, the Sun started rising behind the buildings. At one point on the track, he just stood with folded hands, looked at the Sun and prayed. The Sun is energy and exactly what he needed at this age. As I crossed the same track, I smiled for I saw faith. He was caught red-handed. Too hard to ignore beliefs.
Early in the morning, when the family was fast asleep, he sneaked into the balcony. There was enough natural light to see and with a mirror in one hand and a pair of scissors in the other, he began trimming those strands of grey hair. Just then, his daughter stepped out and laughed at what she saw. “Not again, daddy. Grey hair is a sign of intelligence. Grow up!” He was caught red-handed. Too hard to accept that age was catching up.
He was diagnosed with high blood sugar. All he needed was a good diet, regular monitoring, and physical activity to keep the body active. When his wife was away to the store, he grabbed a handful of raisins but left the jar opened. He was caught red-handed. Too hard to hold back cravings.
She was on a work call. How boring it was with no new updates and hard to follow conversation. She decide to plug in the hands free and started walking. Gathering some steps on her fitness tracker and using her time well. She forgot to put the phone on mute. They called out her name and asked her to put the phone on mute. She was caught red-handed. Too hard to avoid embarrassment.
We have all been caught in such acts. Or may be we have caught a couple. Sometimes we knew it would happen and sometimes, unknowingly. Enjoy when you get caught cos it’s fun to be able to laugh at self. There are giggles and memories in these stories and these are those parts of life we will remember.
I am with Team #CrimsonRush and today is Day 4 of the #BarAThon.
