Today mom caught me red-handed reading a book under the blanket.
I had a torch, I said in defense.
But you didn’t have your specs on, my mom replied.
The thing is, it’s too heavy to wear these specs. I’m tired of my friends laughing at me. I’m tired of being called a ‘chashmish’ every time. My eyes have started looking like Dobby’s eyes.
Before you start berating me, let me tell you the reasons why I did it
1. I was supposed to take my afternoon nap and then complete my homework.
2. I didn’t want to complete my homework or sleep.
3. My eyes were paining too badly. Actually, they were just too dry because I was feeling sleepy.
Did I mention that the book was ‘Harry Potter and the Cursed Child’?
Now, dear diary, tell me what’s wrong in this sort of behaviour?
But mom yelled her lungs out at me, confiscated my book and told me she would return it only after a week.
What do I do now? All my friends are going to be discussing the book by tomorrow. And I had just got the book today!
Should I sneak in to mom and dad’s room tonight and get the book out? She must have kept it in the same place where she had hidden the box of Dairy Milk chocolates last month. Is it worth a try?
I’m too angry to write anything right now or to think clearly. So,
Hola! In case you’re wondering whether this post is a throwback to one of my diary entries, let me correct you.
I’m participating in Blog-A-Rhythm’s Bar-A-Thon! This entire week, I will be posting daily, based on the prompts given at BAR’s blog. Each post will be presented in a diary entry format. I have selected a theme to base my posts on, and the theme is “The Spectacled Journey”.
Many of us may or may not remember those weird days when we were diagnosed as myopics and given glasses to wear. This theme celebrates those fearsome days, which now serve as fodder for jokes and nostalgic memories.
I do hope you enjoy these posts! Do follow my blog to stay in touch with the recent posts in this series, and don’t forget to share the comment love!
In case you missed reading the previous post because you weren’t wearing your glasses, go back and read it here now!
