“I’m feeling nostalgia and boredom. Do you think I should drink Tea?"
The first part of it was a mere statement of fact and the second was a question. Now this message would make perfect sense to anyone who knows me.
I have exams starting Monday which means that I should be spending majority of my time studying, which is not what I'm doing. Instead, I stare into blank spaces or lie squirming on my bed thinking about studying and hence, I get bored.
I live away from home and any little thing can set me off and make me nostalgic. Since it’s exam time and I usually spend a lot of time pre-exams engaging in futile activities like cleaning out my inbox, sms and looking through old greeting cards, nostalgia comes as a common illness.
I have a weakness for Tea and coffee. If not for Tea and coffee, I’ll probably die or sleep or do both simultaneously. I ask people if I should drink tea/coffee because it makes me feel better about ingesting so much caffeine.
Now my mother, who calls me only if there’s a commercial inbetween the program she’s watching, called as soon as I sent her the sms to tell me I’m an idiot.
Mom: What does nostalgia and tea have anything to do with eachother?
Me: I just want Tea mummu.
Me: Whaat? Don’t scold when I’m feeling nostalgia.
Mom: Do you know what ‘nostalgia’ means? Go check with a dictionary. It’s called nausea, not nostalgia.
Me: Er! :|
My mother, of all people, expects me to be logical on a hot afternoon before exams.
She just doesn’t understand me. I almost died of emotional trauma but fear not, Tea saved me.
