I think I won’t have any problem finding material to write here 😀 . Being chronically forgetful myself, I will be sharing my short tales here. Lets see if they make you laugh even if I didn’t at the time.. 😉
So this is almost an year back when we had recently shifted to a new home and getting used to stuff. Instead of old fashioned windows, this one had sliding doors in each room. We had frequent feathered visitors there, though most of them were pigeons which was annoying.
So, this one day, hubby is in office and I am at home lazily spending my weekend off in bedroom. For some reason, probably to make more tea (having no inclination to cook I survive on tea on the weekends 😉 ), I went to kitchen. And there it was. A pigeon sitting on the bed in my hall !! And the worst part…the sliding doors were closed, so it must have come from a small side window. Now I love birds, but that is to watch them from a distance. And not when they intrude on my turf !
So, here I was, trying to shoo away the pigeon through that small space instead of enjoying my book. It suddenly took off…started to hover or fly or whatever in the hall. And I ran to the kitchen, into the balcony adjoining and closed the sliding door to avoid it further coming my way.
Imagine what could have happened…
I had completely closed the door forgetting –
1. that I was alone in the house
2. that the main door was locked from inside by me
3. that the sliding door could not be opened from outside
[Facepalms] on the sheer stupidity… 😀
Thankfully it was not the glass door I closed, but one with a mesh. And thankfully I had a stick. So after trying all possible ways of opening it, including getting up on the railing on the 22nd floor of the building to try to put my hand through the exhaust space…[don’t ask…was scared like hell at the time.. which reduces common sense I guess 😉 ]
So finally I tore the mesh partly with the stick and got out.
And the bloody pigeon had already gone by then!
