It is always challenging to write something on a Sunday. I really appreciate myself for being able to sit down and write this post.
It is Ganpati time in my city and the entire maximum city has got dressed up like a new bride. Well, not really a pretty bride if you take into consideration the metro work, potholes and traffic snarls. I do not want to sound racist or sexist and thus I take back my “bride” metaphor.
I had a relatively lazy Sunday morning because I got enough time to finish the newspaper along with the supplementary pages and the tabloid. It is a great achievement because I usually never get time to read the paper from corner to corner.
In the supplementary page I came across the term ‘masturdating’. It means dating oneself. The article said this is a new concept, however I beg to disagree because I have been doing this since puberty.
I have lived alone in a new city, where I hardly knew anyone. Being an introvert I cannot make friends quickly and thus tagging along with someone was impossible, therefore, I started going out alone. Initially it was to buy essential items, then gradually I started to go out shopping and then started going out for movies alone. The first time I went for a movie alone I felt so liberated. Then one day I bought a book and went to a coffee shop. I started reading the book and left the cafe only when I finished the whole book.
Even after marriage this habit didn’t change. My husband is a busy man and he is not very keen on going out for a movie with me. Secondly our taste in movies also differ, therefore, I continued watching movies alone.
Even today my favourite way to hangout is by sitting in a nice cafe with a book. I love to observe people and a cafe is q best place to do that. I will tell that story some other day.
So do you masturdate? Let me know
