That's Life!!!

V pirouettes around everyones' desk singing,
"I am gonna paaarttyy everyday, I'm gonna dannnnciiing everyday, I'm gonna plaaaayyyy with my grandkids everyday.....I'm going vacaaaationinnng every month....."

G who was on the seat next to me on a train to San Diego, "I have to complete my homework"


G,"I am learning moviemaking and editing and I go or Spanish classes every Friday. Haven't done my homework for tomorrow."
And he shows me a picture of a beautiful Carribean lady on his phone camera and says proudly,"That's my movie teacher"

V is 55 and retiring next month
G is 78 and retired from his family business 5 years back

That's life with a capital L if you ask me :-)


  1. I wish I am like that, when I become old. Really, its very difficult to contain the zest of life inside us, as we become older. And it takes a lot of inspiration and motivation to do such things. God, grant me this wish. Let me live life to the fullest till the day I stop breathing.

  2. Woww! I luv it that way .. Love with a capital L that is ;)

  3. Wish everybody shared the same enthu for life like G :)
