Word of the Week #33:

Reeling

That was how I evaluated my state, when a friend just casually happened to ask, “What are you doing now?”

And I can say with some certainty that I am not the only one…

First, the Government of India initiates NoCashNovember, which in itself was quite fun.

And not to be outdone, the people of US have Duck à l’Orange delivered at the White House, a dish that already makes many of us gag.

Now, a few days have passed. The world has not returned to normalcy, just yet, and neither is it expected to, in the immediate future, but I have calmed down enough to begin to see the brighter side of things. And, to be very honest, it is not like I ever did have much cash before this anyway…

For instance, over the past week, I have not seen any cops stalking the streets, looking for helmet-less prey. After all, that is now as effective as buying shampoo for Mike Tyson.

We have already seen bellyaching regarding the two situations escalate, and I fear the worst is yet to come.

In the case of our geographically distant friends, the only silver lining I can see is the example being set by the Obama administration, working hard for the next two months, intent on keeping doom at bay.

That is all we can do now.

Word Hard.
Persevere.
Endure.
Survive.

“In times of adversity and change, we really discover who we are and what we’re made of.”
― Howard Schultz
