fRet-a Fret Story (smiles strictly prohibited)

Long long Ago, there was a man named Fret, his wife was Anxiety and he has two kids Fear and Worry. They all were living unhappily in their filthy cottage named Agonized Palace. There were not many houses around their palace, so they used to feel so lonely.

One day they decided that they will visit some of the homes in the town and will arrange a get-together. Fret told his family that they need to be not friendly with others there. He named a few Calm, Happy and Comfort, and strictly instructed, kids to stay away from them or they will lose their character.

A very gloomy party was going on (smiles were prohibited), Anger, Frustration, and Stress were also there and playing some really bad terrible music, and all were bothering-ly enjoying, the favorite beats of anger.

They noticed that Happy, Comfort were entering hand in hand with Calm. And everyone’s surprise Love and Joy with them.

Fear and Worry, as usual, got worried and fearful. As per the instruction by father Fret, they had to stay away from Happy, Calm and Comfort. Confusion was on these two Love and Joy. They whispered to each other ‘Can we mingle with Love and Joy?‘. They decided to play with Love and Joy, but not with Happy, Calm or Comfort. This way they are not disobeying father Fret.

Fret was busy with Stress, he missed to notice his kids.

The kids mingled with new friends, and soon enough Happy and Comfort joined them. Fret’s kids were feeling strange, something was disappearing from them, what was that. Worry was not worried and thought to rename as Not Worry, and suggested a name to brother Fear, FearLess.

Happy took the guitar from Anger and played happy feet music, soon everyone was dancing. Even Fret and Anxiety could dangerously smile and went back to their Palace. They decided they will never come to this town again.

Calm was sitting peacefully in a corner, watching all this, thought to join, Fret family kids as they were already friends with Joy, Love, and Comfort!

Now Fret and Anxiety live together, away from Harmonious Town, named by Love, Joy Fearless, and NotWorry.

It is a very serious story, please don’t dare to smile.

funFilled day-Yesterday!

A few minutes ago I was in other room away from this fantastic machine called LapTop. I had every word in my mind what I am going to share with you all.  And I came back to write and every word is being disappeared from my mind. The brain is occupied with so much that sometimes hopping on one task to another and we lose few things in between. Not as efficient as this machine is which autosaves what I type on it, and keeps it there unless it gets a virus attack or gets corrupted. 

Oh! yes, I am getting some glimpses what has to say… I was thinking to share my yesterday’s experience. Yesterday was an eventful day for us, with so much of activity. Asper my decision we planned our day to stay away from our machines and spend quality time with each other.

We went to a nearby temple, and to our surprise, an event was organized there and we had tempting food, which we have been missing for quite some time. The sacred place left us very peaceful inside, something we were missing. The energy was so good. And later there was a performance by small kids. It was so good that we enjoyed every bit of it. And we bought some sweets, which were a part of a fundraising programme for the premises. And they offered us more of the sweets as they were almost living and had to finish those.  We paid more and the amount we got was of even more price, my girls were so happy to have so much of sweets, it is their favorite ‘Rasmalai‘.

Duo Dance. Well done girls!

As per the plan, we had to go to the park after leaving the temple, but we had to come back to keep the sweets.

Then we went to the park and to our surprise there we found melting snow, it was freezing cold and wind chills. I never knew melting snow can be this much messy. The kid’s rides area was full of water, now what? The kids were even happy to play on the smaller ride area which has less water. Soon my elder daughter got engaged to a new friend and little one and dad played “peek-a-boo” in an open area. Later lil one insisted her father accompany her for a walk. 🙂

I was left with my phone-camera. My interest was to find the very signs of spring, I have posted some of the pics on my another post as ‘Awakening’ WPC. Most of the trees still don’t have signs of spring. But fortunately, I could find a few bushes and trees with new budding leaves (the right side image).

And I decided to come back as my hands were almost frozen, actually, we were not dressed according to the weather, expecting a mild cold. So I announced it to three of them and they stayed back for some more time. When they came back their shoes were all wet, they jumped in the snowy water.

Now, I will hop to the late evening, in the evening we had tasty homemade food with good old songs. Later we three danced together and even played Dumb Charades of movie names.

Overall a fun filled day we spent together, and only I know how I handled the temptation of being online and read. But I think it is good to take breaks from our usual routine and habits and trends!
