I was quite worried when I didn’t find any new post on your blog, have you been out of sorts lately? Enquired my friend even as she stepped in.
I am perfectly o.k. I assured her but knew she was not convinced.
How come you have not written anything after your post on ‘Teacher’s Day?’, she literally demanded. Oh, yes , I didn’t. I never knew you kept a tab on my posts, I said laughing. Tell me honestly, did you miss reading the stuff I dish out periodically, I said expecting a compliment.
Well, let me be honest , more than missing your tongue in cheek humour and digs at people, I wondered what had kept you from updating your column, She confessed.
Thank God , as far as you don’t think I have run out of ideas, I am relieved, I said.
Certainly not. I am sure creative writers never run out of ideas, she assured.
Thanks again. But we may recycle them, I said smiling.
Old wine in new bottle? She said laughing.
Probably , I said.
You have still not told me why you didn’t update your column? She reminded.
Well, it’s like the farmer and the donkey’s story. You know the gale a few days ago had snapped the telephone line and with my phone going dead, I couldn’t connect my computer to the net and it had to take forced rest /casual leave for three full days until the line was restored, I explained.
You seem to be outdated still sticking to land lines and desk tops. High time you update yourself with technology so that you will have no hassles in updating your blog posts, she advised.
