Guess what, guys..!! I fell down.. Yeah, you read that right. I really did fall down. And I sprained my foot. This mishap took place on Sunday. Sadly, I did not have an internet connection around me so I spent time reading a book. And now I finally have my laptop and an internet connection and here I am writing the post which has been pending since the past three days.
You know, it is quite embarrassing to fall down in a movie theater. It doesn't happen too often but when it does, it makes you go red, not with anger but a feeling that is called "being embarrassed". Anyway. So, on Sunday, I went to watch Sex and the City - 2 and everything was okay till the interval. Well, to tell you the truth, it wasn't. The girl who was sitting next to me carried an awful B.O. Man, it was quite suffocating. And I don't know what got into her but every few minutes she would raise her arm and an awful smell filled the air. Blame it to be my bad luck, the AC was just too effective that day which made matters even worse.
I somehow managed till the interval and decided to move a little away from that girl and a little closer to the big screen. So, we got up from the seat and moved a little further. Thankfully, there were not many people in the theater and majority of the seats were vacant. So, we managed a nice seat. And then, I got up to get some popcorn and coke and whoaa, I fell down. Perhaps I twisted my ankle and tumbled down the two steps. I mean, I really don't know what happened and how it happened, I realized the fall only when I saw myself on the ground. It was quite a smooth fall. And my friend didn't even notice that I had fallen down. Because, I think she came much later to help me. But a guy who had an amazing voice was much faster. I think he was just behind me when I fell. And with a husky voice, he asked me, "Are you okay". And I nodded. Shit Shit Shit. I did not even look at his face and into his eyes. I should have. A mischievous and flirtatious glance would have done the trick. But thats what I regret. I was so much in pain that I forgot to look him in th eye.
Its no use crying over spilt milk so the chapter about the guy with a husky voice stands closed.
But I have to tell you this. Its quite creepy, though. A day before the fall, I had a premonition that I am going to fall down from the stairs. And when I fell down, the premonition struck me. It freaked me out when I remembered seeing myself falling down from the stairs. I am not sure whether to call it a Déjà vu or a premonition but I chose to call it the latter because I had that fall in my mind even before I actually fell. I mean, It wans't that I felt that I have seen this happening before but it was as if I knew I am going to fall. I hope I am making sense.
I faced another creepy situation. After I got a sprain, I had to drive back home. It wasn't a very good idea because my feet really made me scream. But thats not creepy. I am coming to that. Well, I reached home and just as I was about to enter the society after parking my car, a scene flashed in front of my eyes. I'll try to explain that scene and trust me it won't be difficult for you guys to imagine.
"A gust of wind is blowing. It carried with itself all the dried leaves and blew them here and there. Far away there is a temple and you could hear the bells ringing and the faint voices of people chanting the prayers. The hero of the movie is limping. He is wounded and is trying to walk as fast as his legs could carry. He has to find some shelter. He does not want to get stuck in the rain. He must get his wound bandaged. And so he is hurriedly walking in the darkness"
Does it sound familiar. Did it remind you of a sequence from any old bollywood movie? It did, I know. Because, the same thoughts were going through my mind. I mean, it was extremely creepy. I felt like the actor who is just about to be shot dead by the villian.
I don't know about you, but I got goosebumps that day. On reaching home, I crawled into bed and wrapped a sheet around myself. And slept.
It was really freaky.
And today, its been 4 days since I got the sprain. A lot has happened in these 4 days about which I will write a separate post which will specially be dedicated to the doctor's diagnosis. Its really crazy to see doctors acting crazier than you could ever imagine. I'll soon come up with a post.
Till then, Ciao..
PS : I am really enjoying my stay at home even though the whole day is spent in bed. The best thing about the sprain is that I don't have to go to the office. Sadly, I plan to make a short visit to the office in the afternoon today.
