Ring, ring!

I was sitting by the phone
I was waiting all alone
Baby by myself I sit and wait and wonder about you
It’s a dark and dreary night
Seems like nothing’s going right
Won’t you tell me honey how can I go on here without you?
Yes I’m down and feeling blue
And I don’t know what to do, oh-oh
Ring, ring, why don’t you give me a call?
Ring, ring, the happiest sound of them all

- ABBA

Until yesterday, we were complete strangers. Until yesterday, my life was my own. My happiness and my sorrow were mine and only mine. I had shielded my feelings ever so carefully.

Today, you walked in and you took over everything. Suddenly, I'm sad because you haven't called. Could it be something I said or did? Maybe you're just plain busy, but then again, I'm not really sure. And these thoughts have taken over my life now. As I go to bed, as I wake up, and in my dreams, I'm only thinking about when you will call.

Why is that I'm not sure of anything anymore? How and when did you take over my emotions? Why is it that how I feel today about anything at all depends on whether I'll hear my phone go "Ring, ring, the happiest sound of them all"?

Postulate : Phones don't ring..

Your lives would be much better if you could believe in this postulate. ;)

some time back i was walking the court corridors talking on the mobile. and a senior advocate who had passed me noticed that i had not wished him. he came back and asked me if i had "kaadhu vali"!! then i realised that one is so oblivious to one's surroundings while talking on the mobile and sometimes even forget to acknowledge people. and to the onlooker, it actually looks like we have "kaadhu vali" :)

Phones don't ring... good thought... and I'd like to know what it is that they do :)

Mukund... kaadu vali... yeah :)

Caff: Did your phone ring?

Bertie: Great idea... I'll make use of it sometime... looks like my week's begun with me waiting for the phone to ring again :)
