It Was Sticky

We needed another tv for the kids to play their games, or watch cartoons. My (late) husband R’s  and the children’s timings clashed with each other. R told me to go and purchase one for the young ones.

After going through several shops, I selected one and brought it home. Back in home country once you buy an electric thing (they test it in front of you to show it’s working) and bring it home, it won’t be taken back. There is no return policy, you are stuck with it.

The tv was put in the designated place, and I switched it on. The screen looked odd — half grey and half color. My heart sank down to my shoes. I was left wondering how was I going to return it? 😥

Fortunately a relative had a friend running a shop near the one I had bought my ill fated tv. He went along with me to ask for a refund. I breathed a sigh of relief in getting my money back. 😊

Getting Over Obsession

Daily Prompt: What Do You Obsess Over?
Have you ever become obsessed with something? Tell about something that captivates your attention like nothing else.


I have worked out my obsessions. I used to be obsessed with buying shoes, jewelry, bags, collecting crockery, books, gardening, crafts, knitting, playing games and cleanliness.

The cleanliness bit was a nightmare. When I stopped having anyone to clean the house for me, my life became a misery. We do get a lot of dust storms, where I used to live.

I would make everything spick and span, by next day again, dust would take over. I would kill myself with cleaning. I used to be exhausted. I made myself a schedule. Once a week, I would clean thoroughly. For the rest of the week, I would give a quick flip over to places more used, like the kitchen and living room. That way I made my life bearable.
