Desperately needing a cheer after a blasting from my boss (and expecting another one after he's done with the meeting), I decided to be stubborn and began reading old blogs of friends instead of working. I randomly reached Aparna's blog and while going through her ancient posts, came across this one.

Its a copy paste but made me smile, hope it has a similar effect on you..

Take a few minutes and read these. Think about them one at a time BEFORE going on to
the next one.........

> Laughing so hard your face hurts.
> A hot shower.
> No lines at the Super Wal-Mart.
> A special glance.

> Lying in bed listening to the rain outside.
> Hot towels out of the dryer.

oh btw and about my palindrome thingy!
email me. Which part of the poem didnt u understand? or was it thre whole poem itself?
There is nothing much n it actually!
Its just the reading part.
U have to be careful thats all. If u read each line separately it will definitely not make any sense!!
