Another foolish act!

So yesterday I was rambling about how I am an ultimate fool just for forgetting something, but today there is a new realisation about me. The fact that I am a fool doesn’t change but the reason does. Today I seem to be a fool only because I can’t forget things. Oh what an irony!

So what happened is I woke up with a tune in my mind. I mean I wasn’t listening to the song last night, it wasn’t playing anywhere in the morning, but when I woke up today, the first thought that came to my mind was that song. Which one? Bolna from Kapoor and sons.

And the song doesn’t just seem to go away. It was there with me in the bath, during the breakfast, on my way while driving, so much so that it was there in with me in the meeting too. I was humming the song silently while my client was saying something.

And it struck me then. What are you doing you fool? Stop singing!! It isn’t the place to sing.

And the song still didn’t go away. It keeps coming back, and the day isn’t over yet. I don’t know how many more blunders I am going to make today just for not forgetting the song!

  1. Hahaha… That’s a lovely song. And you are right.. it happens with me so frequently.. once I was writing my final term exam and the song “mast magan” never left my mind for once. I cursed myself so much but no effect.

  2. Haha… It has happened with me too. The song that we listen or comes to our mind, first thing in the morning sticks for a long time. Sometimes, I would be humming them even for a few days 🙂

  4. Oh this is so so normal!!!! Happens with me all the time…and many times it’s just the tune which gets stuck and i cant recall the lyrics..and then it gets even more frustrating!! 😭😭😭….and i wish there is a way to search using the tune only!
    Liked the way you wrote this one! Such a normal observation and you wrote such an interesting post on it and even linking it to your previous post (the irony part)…made me think that even i do this!! 😊 And that ‘So what happened is ..’….made me sit up with all the excitement and anticipation…like granny is going to start a new story!! 😁😁😁…. totally loved it!!
