Motorcycle Ride (55)

A glorious day for a motorcycle ride. Clear skies, the shining sun, cool winds, chirping birds, and flowers in bloom. "This," he thought, "is what paradise must be like." Lost in his thoughts, he didn't see the light turn red before he crossed it. A truck driver in a hurry ran him over.

Hmm so that means he actually got a chance to go to paradise (if there is one) and verify if his thought about paradise being so and so, was correct!


Wouldn't it be good if the story ended with the guy escaping the truck? Oh well! what to do? Nuts like me would always prefer the guy escaping specially if he is rich, single and good looking :P

Hi, I spent most of yesterday reading through ur posts. Back from vaccation i really am still in the vaccation mood and doesnt feel like working. Your blog is a good time pass. After reading your celestial conversations post i got an idea of following the same format to express my feelings out to someone and i wonder if you would mind posting my **Message** in your blog. If you like to see the post before commiting please email to dravid.rahul@gmail.com and i will send u the post. I am anonymous from chennai currently working in the states.

Thanks

Kusum: I never thought about it like that! :) Yes, I guess he got what he wanted :)

But if he escaped the truck it would be only half a story :) And if it makes you feel better, though he didn't know it, he was going to lose his job the next day, his wife would take all his money and run away with another man, and he looked like a gorilla.

Anwin: Me too :)

Anonymous: I recommend starting a blog instead :)

Mythalez: Actually people complain that my 55-word stories are morbid in general.

Everyone who cares: I didn't say the guy actually dies. I only said he gets run over :)

Moral of the story : -

When driving, keep your eyes on the damn road. And stop Dreaming!
