Places I Miss Visiting During The Lockdown

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.  

What are some of the things you miss doing during the Lockdown?

Things that happen when your younger brother is around

In honor of my little brother’s 21st birthday ( If he reads this, I can just imagine him rolling his eyes praying for patience 😝)  here are 21 things that happen whenever he’s around

1. We always fight for the remote 

    

2. We always finish the chocolates from the fridge before the other gets a chance

3. We always mock complain to our parents, or atleast I go like, ‘Mommmm!!’ as a throw-caution-to-the-winds 😂

4.  We love telling on each other’s deepest dismays to our parents  

5. We take turns in doing household work. And if it is not our turn we won’t dont do it. 

6. When Dad or Mom calls, “Why does is it have to be me? Why dont u tell him?” 

7. We like messing each other’s things just to wind the other up.  
8. We always have an eye on the other’s plate at meals

9. I always offer him advice, but he is too cool for my old school 

10. So naturally, I get a shock if he asks for my advice

11. I always buy him gifts but I don’t get any in return 

 

12. We have synchronized morning schedules to avoid getting into arguments 

13. We cover up for each other 

 

14. If I’m bored I can always bug him

15. We always criticize each other’s likes and mimic each other just to wind each other up. 

16. He lets me bat while playing cricket which no one else allows me to do 🏏😁

17. We team up and irritate mom 😈😈

18. He is a great support during the dreaded “family functions”. We don’t even have to communicate with words.

19. I can gossip with him – he atleast listens to it all. 😜
   

20. And this is one thing every sibling tells the other – that Mom and Dad love us more than them😂 

21. But seriously speaking little bro, I feel that U should get all the chances that I didnt. And we are all proud of U and want to see U happy. 

Once again,
