Beyond Comfort Lines

19 Jan

Not me, hell no! (Though I occasionally often subject Rakesh to it… sorry babe!)

Last evening, I had a rather hectic workout, because the gym was quite empty for a change. In fact, within half an hour of my arrival there, nearly everyone had cleared out, so all the equipment was in access. None of the pro’s were present, so I was feeling good about myself. Thus, I worked out my triceps, abs, sides and legs.  Normally, one should do no more than 2 at a time. But I was feeling happy!

My legs are slightly on the heavier side, or so I believe. I feel extremely weak and rather giddy after a couple of sit-ups. I think it’s because my legs cannot support the rest of my weight. Then again, when I do a certain exercise called Leg Raises in which I have to raise the weight of my legs alone, the rest of me cannot support the weight of the legs. Weird!

So I came back at 9 pm. Hagatha and I were supposed to meet after dinner to chit-chat, since we hadn’t met all day. But as we’re together for most part of every other day, I smsed her telling her I couldn’t make it.

Later that night around 10.30, when I was about to go to sleep, she SMS-ed, wishing to initiate one of her frequent conversations about how her life had transformed in the last few years and how delighted she was in college, with a friend like me. I felt the same way and such, and we’ve spoken about it several times. And are likely to touch upon the issue again, in the future.

Thus again, I made my apologies, saying I was extremely exhausted and needed to sleep. Which I did, a few minutes later.

The next morning, she messaged complaining that she could’ve easily talked a little longer the previous night, and that I cut her off. I reminded her about how tired I was then. She continued saying that I’d speak endlessly whenever I needed to share, and she couldn’t, and so on. I reminded her again that I really was tired.
Then she once again complained for “completely neglecting” her over the winter break, which I had told her was because the environment at home was almost electric. And because I needed a little time apart from her.

Eventually, I told her that if she needed someone to be available on call, she needed to ask someone else, because I could only be human.

Eventually, she ended up asking me if I needed a time-out from us. I didn’t want to upset her, or make things worse since we will be spending a lot of the semester together, and told her to just be more understanding.

I don’t think there is anything as a perfect friend. Each person brings with him/her a lot of baggage. I suppose I’m grateful she subjects me to hers in very occasional, albeit strong, doses.

But inspite of her parasitic tendencies, she’s my hag and I love her do!
(Okay, that last line was hard to write at the moment, because I’m still mad at her, so the Ladies reading better not scream at me!)

    May be when you calm down you should rethink about the post title. Everything is okay in friends. Counting on a friend is the best part of friendship.

    Rethink the title?!

    It only says “tendencies”… not “advances” or anything…

    Bah, you’re right :@

    “…she SMS-ed, wishing to initiate one of her frequent conversations about how her life had transformed in the last few years and how delighted she was in college, with a friend like me.”

    She likes talking endlessly about that, you like talking endlessly about yourself. You guys really are a great match!

    Awww, all gals are somewhat like that dude. I know I have done that countless number of times, but the people I do it with are the ones I love the most. 🙂
