The L&M woke me up at 5 a.m. A light touch and I was wide awake. Excitement does that. Sleep vanishes in a jiffy, leaving you fresh and ready to start the day. Today was the day, I told myself. I quickly performed my morning ablutions, gulped down my tea, changed into going-out clothes, stuffed the Kindle into my handbag, put on my mask, and was ready to wave Luci a cheery goodbye by 6-30 a.m.
Luci on the other hand wasn’t happy at all. She had on a long face. She hates going-out clothes. I thought I had cured you of this bad habit of wearing going-out clothes and disappearing, her reproachful look said. Be a good girl, I called out to her cheerfully, pretending to ignore the look. Mommy will be back soon. The L&M locked the gate, and soon we were in the car, on our way. The music from the pen drive, all my choices, started playing and I sat back happily to enjoy the long drive ……to the doctor’s clinic.
Yes, that’s where we were headed. I suppose it is inevitable that it should come to this. You virtually lock people away in their homes for months with no outings whatsoever and when they finally get a chance to go out, it fills them with so much elation, as if they are going on a school picnic. Never mind that in reality, the trip was only to the doctor’s clinic for the annual check up.

Hope it all went okay and that nobody was too hard on you when you got homw!
It’s good that dogs have short memories. By the time I am back, Luci is in full ‘I am so happy you are home’ mode. 😄
Yes, I get excited about getting to go through the drive-thru fast-food restaurants these days.
I can so relate to that! 😄
Hope you got an all clear from the doc. These days it’s even a fun outing to get a swab shoved up my nose! (precautionary test)
Yes, I did, thank you 🙂 Hope your test went well too!
It was negative as I expected. 🙂 Thanks for checking.
Good to know 🙂
I know that feeling only too well!
Ahh, Anne. How we miss the outdoors!

Oh, I get excited about grocery shopping these days. Sad life.
Hope you are ok…doctor’s visit and all.
Yes, sad life. And here my husband does grocery shopping, though I try and prevent that by doing something exciting like ordering online 😄
The doctor gave me a clean chit, thank you 🙂
That’s what life has come too these days. I too get a thrill when I have to go to the grocer or chemist to pick up essentials
Hi there, I’m not sure if you know but your profile links to an adult site. I often click on profile links to find new bloggers, but in this case something is wrongly linked. Might be something for you to fix in your blog. 🙂
I just checked. You are right, S. I have removed the url in this comment, Unishta. I hope you have your blog checked.
Yes I know that . I am trying to set this right. I’m embarrassed with this disgusting link to my site and profile .
Unishta, refrain from entering your url when you comment, for the time being, till you get it sorted out. Why give them more hits?
I have deleted my Gravatar so hopefully this will sort out the problem
No. Your website url is still there in the comment. You have to remove that while commenting. I manually edited your last comment, deleted the website url. Please make sure you don’t enter it while commenting.
