Mannequin

So Shrads, Purni and I met up today for the usual gab session... after ages actually... After spending a couple of hours complaining, gossipping about people the others didn't know about or did and commenting on the people who had come to Peppinoes, we turned to leave... Since Purni had parked her car further away, Shrads told me that if I walked with Purni, she'd catch up by her bike...

As we walk to the parking, we see a mannequin outside a shop... What caught Purnima's and my eyes was the pose of the mannequin... Left hand high in the air and right hand much lower at shoulder level, we wondered what this 'female' was doing...

'Doesn't she look like she's playing shotput,' I ask... 'Nah,' says Purnima even as Shraddha agrees... 'Com'on I say... its either like she's playing shotput, we need to place an iron ball in her right hand or basketball (though I later realised volleyball made more sense)'

As Shraddha walks to her bike, Purnima and I argue. Purnima says, 'No way, it looks more like she is trying to give one tight slap to someone...' 'Logically impossible,' say I. 'The guy would be too tall the way she is standing... her hand is too far up'... 'It's like she is holding his face in her hand to slap him'...

She can't slap a guy that tall, I mean seriously, all the kinetic energy and momentum would be lost in the effort to lift her hand so high...

Since this is not really gonna get settled, Purnima and I return to the shop and take a pic of the mannequin...

So I ask you... (if anyone actually reads my blogs that is)... what do you think is this woman trying to do?

I'm talkin' 'bout love....

I haven't quite been able to figure out this potent power the emotion LOVE has over people (though I think I have written my share of blog posts about this topic)... I have seen people reduced to a mass of depressed agony when the person they love does not work with them anymore or if they break up... People fighting, crying, accepting betrayal... and all in the name of love... Why is it?

...Meaningless musings...

I leapt off the roof today... I leapt off the roof and jumped on the clouds... I tap-tap-tapped my way across the sky... I floated with the wind... I danced my way in my ballet shoes over the snow covered hills... and piroutted as I came to the earth with the rain drops...

I glided on a moon beam and twinkled with the stars... I flew across lands near and far...

I rose with the fireworks and exploded into a million smiles...

I rise and fly still on a wave upon the sea....
