How I was a lunatic for a day

Sometimes, amidst all the hustle-bustle of our lives, we miss the real fun of laughing really hard, and playing the insane person. Well, I decided that it was high time I got back to the basics and yesterday was such a day.

Once I was back from office, that too a special two-hour-early, I spent my time reading some material, glaring at the TV, et al. The mood started when friends came home. I just remembered a prank I had played on some others a day before, and laughed. As you can imagine, everyone looked at me in a mused-foxed-incredulous-ridiculous way. Ahh... that was the chance! Much to the chargin of the room-folk, I started laughing (read blaring) again! Since our beds are on the floor, I had no problems givin them a demo of the ROTFL posture!! (That was "Rolling On The Floor Laughing", for the uninitiated). Soon enough, their faces changed rapidly from amused to foxed to he-lost-his-balls kind of. Hee hee, I am sure that performance would have given Arshad Warsi a run for his money!

And that set me all the more laughing. I mean, sometimes when you are in a flow, you simply laugh because you find yourself laughing! But my... the climax came in when it became infectious. Somebody quipped about how much money they could make if they opened a zoo with me as the sole display, and he started laughing. I believe, because the decibel levels were already quite high, the other two missed the joke (PJ??). They thought that the others had joined the party, and thought of having a laugh at our expense. Soon enough, it was a model laughing club in the house.

To add to the pandemodium, I brought in a pair of sunglasses, (yeah, in the middle of the night), and started doing a disco-bhangra (a.k.a. my Hrithik Roshan style), and singing some crude version of "kissi disco mein jaaye". You should have been there to know how people can jeer and cheer a 84-kilo half-naked person wearing sunglasses doing that at 11:30 in the night. Anyone insane would have returned back to sanity as soon as he saw that he is not even close to the chaos we were causing.

Huff... I became tired. After all, 8 long hours in front of a comp takes its toll sometime. Anyway the hub died down once cricket highlights of the series came on the TV (yeah, that definitely takes the higher priority). Whew! Finally I was off to sleep, still going into fits of hee-haw at times and my roomie swearing to nail me alive if I messed his sleep any longer.

  6. Hey, Vampire, saw your post, and I think that one refers more to the werewolves fantasy than the theme of 'looning about'. Anyway thanks for dropping by.

    Anubhav, as always, your comments make me feel great! Anyhow I can't see why someone misses the ROTFL thingy in college. Guess your exams are too close for comfort, are they?

    And Mr. Nikhil, (oops, did I just forget to say the quirky murmur?)... I have to admit that it was that particular post of your that made me bookmark your blog into my RSS feeds. Keep 'em coming!
