A Quirky Tag

This is a tag I liked and so I picked it up from Usha who tagged all her readers. She is a wonderful poet and a very sensible, fun loving woman. The tag is to share seven things unusual about me 🙂

I took up the tag of mentioning the unusual things about me and now I am finding it difficult to put 7 of them but lets try.

1.) My nose – Its huge and I can compete with Sunny Deol. In my maternal family every one is blessed with a huge nose that is called “Dhokla” like nose. But I guess I beat them all up, mine is the grandest… some times garnished by pimples its the most hated part of my body. I look at Akshay Kumar with full of envy and fantasize some day I will get my nose plastic surgeried to a nose like his !!!!! ( don’t know when I started enjoying fun at my own expense.. this blogging is driving me nuts !)

2.) Plus Plus Minus Minus – all day and night whatever I do I try to even it up. If I chew, it has to be in multiples of two Plus and Minus. Its really weird. If I walk 4 steps they have to be even, either 4 steps in the centre of a tile or 4 on the border of a tile or even worse 2 in the centre two on the lines. If I walk steps and there are 17 steps and I will skip one… I dont kow its really really foolish but I keep counting all the time ! Even when I pat some one it is either twice or worse 4 times but never in odd numbers ! I am trying desparately to leave this habit !

3.) No routines for me – I hate anything that is routine. Some days it is tea, some days it is coffee, some days its lemonade, some days just water. I even change my route to office every week causing much irritation to my brother.

4.) I cry in movies at every opportunity – Of late I try not to go to a theatre, this urge to weep takes me over. Any mother in the film dies and I cry more than the hero of the movie. I have seen Haathi mere Saathi atleast 20 times and even today when the Haathi dies I cry. I just cant help it. A slightly emotional scene and I am looking for a tissue ….

5.) Dreams of cricket – I constantly have dreams about cricket. Long back when India were to tour Australia, this was Sehwag’s first tour, I dreamt he would open the batting and smash Brett Lee all around the park… 3 months after the dream, on boxing day Sehwag smashed Brett Lee and company to a magical 195 !!!!! When I was young, I am young still but I mean when I was a kid and when I would return home after a cricket match, in the nights when I would sleep tired, the cricket match would still go on in my dream and I would speak in my sleep giving chills to my mother… I would suddenly scream, ” Throw the ball ” , “Easy, Easy” , “Run, Run ” whew…

6.) I am tansen, not a kansen at all – Every song I see or hear I have to sing along. I have a strong belief I sound like the great Mukesh himself. No reader will make fun of this !! All are warned !!! Whatever songs are playing I have to sing along with it, be it the theatre or home. My wife keeps prodding me in the stomach in the theatre to lower my volume but I can’t help it !!! I try to sing “I believe I can fly ” with even more feeling than R-Kelly himself !

7.) Sunday is a holiday – When I was young sunday was a holiday and that means, no bathing, no brushing, no shaving, no tiding up… You had to be shoddy on a sunday its a holiday after all… its time to laze or go for a trek or a hike.. but no good work can be done… My wife has sobered me quite a bit though and now I brush and bath on a Sunday !!! tsk tsk… but its so good to be untidy at times !!!

I thought a lot and strangely I managed 7 things. I should make it 8 but I have resisted it !

Now I would like my readers to take this tag tooo… Its voluntary, but if you do take the tag do let me know !!!!!

    Dhiren even i cry when i watch movies in particular when sharaku dies.I am very emotional if a person sits to me is crying, i dont know him, still i get tears in my eyes and i will go and talk to that person.But i have never seen a guy crying.U r too emotional.
    “Whatever songs are playing I have to sing along with it, be it the theatre or home. “My wife keeps prodding me in the stomach in the theatre to lower my volume” I liked it.And i am sure u sing well
    ” suddenly scream, ” Throw the ball ” , “Easy, Easy” , “Run, Run ” whew… this was the funniest.
    Since yesterday night i am trying to figure out 7 unusual things about me, i got few one among them is i cry very easily.
    It was fun reading urs

  13. Vamsee says:

    That was funny and weird at the same time!! Counting steps – didn’t hear that before. The changing routine thing can drive your partner crazy. My husband is that way and I can never buy extra large boxes of cereal….he needs to change it after 3-4 days.

    Crying in movies makes me remember that Preity Zinta / Saif movie based in Melbourne (cant remember the name.

  14. hitch writer says:

    @ Varunavi – I am too emotional in movies not in real life. I get involved a bit too much i guess. me screaming int he night, it wasnt funny for my mom, it would scare her … Lol…

    Waiting for you to figure out your 7.

    @ Kunjal – Welcome to both the blogs !!!!

  15. Usha Pisharody says:

    As Indy says, it is OCD, nothing else, not even a quirk…. LOL!! Kidding!

    @nose… tell me about it.. I got a strange one too..:)

    @crying at movies… well the first guy, after my younger son… that I know 🙂 But Haathi mere Saathi is guaranteed to make anyone cry!

  16. hitch writer says:
