Even though we are not in a curfew, there are some places that I cannot go to anymore or go as often as before.
For example, Visiting my parents. I used to drop by at least once within a week and sometimes stay over. I wish I could still do that, but Internet has been a big issue – cannot do Work From Home without losing my patience. I definitely miss my parents and irritating my brother and I am also missing out while these lovelies grow up.
An opportunity that we lost this year was The North India Tour. We had flights pre-booked and itineraries planned and then the Pandemic hit.
I miss attending Marathons with Flygirl. I am turning into a Slakoth trapped here. My motivation is zapped.
I also miss all the weekends where I used to just hang out with my friends or impulsively go out wherever me and my husband felt like.
We are also huge movie fans and I love the experience of being in a movie theater – the smell of salty popcorn, the cold of the air conditioning, the opening notes of the production drumming through me. Somehow, even with so many streaming options available now, they don’t stir that level of excitement.
I also miss exploring new restaurants. I have set my sights on Gunpowder for so long now, I am not sure when I’ll get the opportunity to visit it.
I miss driving around and stopping at any local stall for shawarma or shev puri. I miss dipping my feet in sand and watching the sunset while enjoying a drink.
