Please don’t mind me.


I could use a pet, Y’know, for petting purposes not because I’m lonely neither do I have other intentions. Ugh! I can feel the sun splattered all over my dried up face, like a thousand needles piercing through my skin. There are pains that you hate and there are ones that make you feel good. This is one of them. Coming back to having pets, I don’t like pets and I don’t know why I said what I said before, just like I do other things. And yeah, the sun, of course it’s always there and the window has now gotten a little boring, perhaps as much as the world outside. What am I even saying? I think it’s high time I took a stroll through the streets, the crowd makes me look and feel less alone. No, I’m not lonely.

Care to grab a sandwich (which is unreasonably expensive)? There’s this coffee shop down the block, stacked with books and boring people.We can talk to each other pretending to read books and maybe overpay for some overpriced coffee.

    I love the part: “we can pretend to talk to each other while we pretend to read books and maybe overpay for some overpriced coffee”. No matter where you live (I live in Russia) it’s absolutely true for every fancy place. Pretending to listen to while pretending to scroll through the phone while pretending that you like overpriced coffee.
    Well said.

  4. Cheers to the over priced coffee I’m sipping with you while I read. Good call to get out of the house for a stroll. Animals are overrated at this moment in my life …. love them but a break would do me good. Nice write up Bharath! 💖👏👏👏 meh! lol

    1. I wonder why they say animals make us less lonely, dogs especially. We have one and I don’t even go near him.
      Thank you, btw.

              having a girlfriend is something that’s really hard like maintaining a six-pack ,its wilder when we compare it with INDIAN-ETHICAL ways to with love leads to at end

  5. I get this feeling. If a word could describe it, I suppose it’d be ‘bleh’. I wish I had a pet, I like dowgs. I’m not alone either, just whimsical. Nice post, relatable.

          Liked by 1 person

          1. I go meh because I find that it is easier to not take things seriously. Once you start to care too much, it leads to your own ruination. (wah, i sound so senti)
