What makes me :)

My list goes…

1. As soon as it finishes eating, my dog wipes its mouth on my skirt. Pretending to be adorable, it uses my dress as a towel!

2. I run out of credit and my phone operator sends a 40% recharge bonus. Coincidence?

3. A saree-clad woman sweeping the street smiles absently as I walk past.

4. A secret glance, pat on the shoulder, a ‘like’ on facebook.  It’s thrilling to feel admired for that very second or less, eventually lost amongst the trivia of our lives.

5. The seed I planted months ago and watered diligently, bursts into baby roots.

6. The grilled fish turns out perfect! Lemon, salt and right temperature do wonders.

7. Watching a father-daughter wedding dance. (Watch it 1:15 onwards…hilarious)

8. The line, “amake marben na ami choto” (Don’t hit me, I am petite) written on the back of a rickshaw.

9. Winning a criss-cross game.

10. Flipping through old albums, spotting a photo of me wearing grandma glasses.

Would love to hear what makes you smile. Share by leaving a comment.
