I sat in front of the mirror for my dose of make-up. Oh damn it! Lipstick and kohl are getting over, I need to buy them. Two more additions in that errand list of mine. I looked at the mirror and felt like an ogre.
It was just another busy day for me, the morning blues, sitting on my study desk I was making the list of chores I had to finish today. Bank, grocery, electricity bills and then I have to run to my work. I had taken a half day today to finish all these stupid errands.
Sigh! I need a break, lifting that coffee mug I went for a shower. I stood under the cold water, all the while feeling exhausted. I stepped out of the shower, reached for my cupboard, pulled out that polka-dotted red gown of mine. I don’t step out without my trademark kohl and lipstick; I sat in front of the mirror for my dose of make-up.
Oh damn it! Lipstick and kohl are getting over, I need to buy them. Two more additions in that errand list of mine. I looked at the mirror and felt like an ogre.

Let it rain let me get drenched and fall sick and lie on that bed for a week.
I didn’t realise I had reached the beach and have forgotten the market route. Fair enough, I will break my rules today, I won’t even go to my work and there is no need to inform my office. I am done, exhausted. I sat on the sand; made circles with a stick, made a few sketches when I got a feel someone is watching me.
