dream?

On my last day at work, my boss asked me what is it that I want in life? Pop came the spontaneous answer, like it always does. I just want to be happy. There were many affirmative nods and smiles from the others around. But c'mon! Don't be a spoilsport! Tell us the dirtiest, most materialistic dream you have..

Well a sea facing apartment that overlooks the highway, which has one entire wall made of glass by which I can sit and write, which I roll down when I want the rain to come in. And a balcony from where in I can lean down and feel the wind. And one bed with a hell of a cushy mattress, where I would totally sink in and disappear, with lots of pillows I can throw my legs on. And of course a kitchen that isn't in any way separated from the hall, where I can cook all my experimental cuisine and try them on myself. And a huge TV on which my favorite sitcoms run back to back, all the time. And a fridge with lots and lots of cheese in it. And Norah/Shakira playing in the background all the time, the volume of which adjusts automatically to my moods..

And in that whole dream, which just now occupies a tiny space inside my head, I see only me. And no one else. No one else deserves to be there along with me, I guess.

But hey there was another dream too. I was home after a few months into MBA, and my dad who is an amateur chef was thinking of quitting his job and we were about to start a restaurant! We were seriously into it, until one day I obviously went back to school, and Dad to his job..!!

Dreams they say..

like you said earlier we have a lot in common.

my only ambition is life is to fight the battles of everday. live a content life. i m sorry but i have no special love for animals and all i can do abt global warming is to keep my carbon footprint in check.

i want to live content.planning each day as it comes.

my materialistic dream is somethng like yours a house i can call my own. my space that is just me. that speaks only of me.
i somehow do not see anyone sharing that space.
it has to be my place, my music, my food, my movies, just me.

i also have that fear that chandler has whn i thnk of this dream. what if i ended up like mr. heckles.
scary eh?

i knw wot u r talking abt..

but hey..u want love right? so what's with this living in a space that's just about you-and-you, do u realize, you will have to let that go once u share ur life with the one you love?!

Vagabond said...

that is exactly what the strife and the confusion is. i do not want to let go of ME yet find the love.
suggestions?

wildflower said...

nah, i've none..jus wna wish u gud luck .. :) loads of it..!
