Mind & Heart – In the words of Ana, we’re binding by the state of total forgetfulness, the following promises/resolutions made at the beginning of this year.
Subscribing to the gym.
Being regular to the gy…*gets interrupted*
Me – Hey! Can we not fixate on the gym part too much? Now, what do we have next on the list?
Mind – Alright, the next items are:
Cutting down on junk.
Testing the true colours of some close friends.
Adopting a street dog.
Me: What? That’s it?
Heart: No, you also mentioned that you’ll break up with the ones that you don’t gel well with.
Me: Which one?
Heart: No idea. You said ”ones”.
Me: Alright smartass, which ”ones” ?!
Heart: I’m not the memory person here. Ask your mind!
Mind: What you looking at me for? I never liked the idea of breaking up in the first place.
Me: Nevermind. So, big deal if I wasn’t regular to the gym or if I’m consuming a little too much of that junk. And those street dogs get really worked up after 1 AM. Now, I need a goodnight’s sleep, you know.
Mind: You sleep at 3 AM everytime.
Heart: Well, she has friends to talk to, you big stone.
Mind: You really want me to start on you, Mr. Stone Heart?
Me: Alright, you two! Stop it. I know I didn’t stick to my resolutions. Maybe, I’m not really a resolution fulfilling kind of a person, you know. Maybe, I’m good at other stuff. Stuff like..
Heart: Breaking hearts, breaking eggs before they boil, not picking up calls, deleting music to stuff in movies which you’ve never seen..
Me: Alright, not those kinda stuff! Stuff like…you know..
Mind: Oh! I know. Teasing people, teasing their accent, their fashion sense, ditching plans, not good at keeping secrets…
Me: Maybe, I should just NOT do the thinking. C’mon, you guys! I’m not that bad. I did make some new friends this year. I also learnt to make new dishes in my PG! I ended up saving some money and buying some cool gifts for my parents. I mean – that’s a fun time eh?
Mind: What about the time when you promised yourself you’ll save up for new years’ and ended up spending that on a really lousy weekend?
Me: Well..you know..Alright, shut up! I may not be good at planning then.
Heart: Planning ‘too’. *grins*
Me: *glares at heart* Yeah, thanks for adding that.
Mind: Anyway, now that the year is on its way to wrap up itself, why don’t you become the softy you used to be and treat your friends and yourself nicely. Pick up calls, workout more and sleep less so that you have more time for yourself.
Heart: I can’t do all that. Do you realize how much time it takes in managing all the veins and the pumping of blood?
Mind: I’m not talking to you, drill hole!
Me: Oh, right. Yeah, I guess I can do that. I’ll try to be a better person. But my resolutions circle too much around me. Are you sure there isn’t any else?
Mind: Well, there’s the pet stuff but you cringed about that idea when you saw a dog taking a big poo..*gets interrupted again*
Me: ..Okay! Let’s shush you now. Hehe. Let’s not give out too much data here, shall we?
Mind: Alright, whatever. The story ended well with you cleaning up stuff and being a nice social worker, but whatever.
Heart: Ana! Just follow your heart. Don’t let your mind rule everytime. If you wanna adopt that dog, I say go for it.
Me: Uh huh. Alright, folks! Thanks a lot for the briefing. So, we’ll meet again in 2013.
Mind: IF it ever sees the light of the day.
Heart: You really think too much.
Me & Mind: We know. 🙂
