Life = Hot Water Shower

30 Dec

“Life is like waiting for hot water under a shower”

We all looked up. Maybe SP had too much to drink? This profound statement was made last week when a bunch of us from college were catching up.

On further checking, it was found that SP was on his fourth beer…but by his lofty standards he was just getting started.

“So you just made that up?” I asked

“No no..” he said “Its true”

He went on to explain…

“You see guru” he said as he gulped his beer…”I have a solar heater at home. You turn on the shower and wait for hot water to come. The water gradually starts getting warmer…but the trick is to figure out when its at its warmest because if you miss it.. the water starts getting colder again..”

“Lifes like that” he continued..ignoring our sniggering…”Maybe right now is the best moment in your life. We should enjoy it”…

I am still trying to grasp it…maybe hes got a point…

    @amreekan: Uncluttered thoughts… we have also discovered we play better golf after a few beers.. Golf Digest proved it as well 😀

    Quite perfect !Its on the same continuum as ‘Lifes the jouney , not the goal “, but far more devious. In waiting, we may have let the moment pass us.
    And the next .
    And the next.

    o boy. That was deep. Very deep. In fact, the man has a point. You never know if the water was perfect the last minute until you’ve passed by it.. Good one Vijay. More people should be drinking I say! 🙂
