Each one out there deserves a “Me Time”.
You know what I mean – the time when you are with nobody else but yourself. No spouse, parents, siblings or friends – not even those whose presence comforts you normally.
This urge of being all alone yourself, doing the simple things you like and spending a quite evening – I get this urge every now and then.
So, why not just do it? Now, that’s the question I hate to answer.
Hubby does not believe in “Me Time” !
“It’s Bull..*”, he says.
Maybe true with him..but hello, I am not you.
“Why?? Why aren’t you coming?” ( total surprise )
“Yeah, I need some time myself. Moreover, we just spent so much time with them few days back”
“Is this about having spent time already?!” ( Brings a ridicule on the face)
“Not really, I just..”
“You are coming.”
“No, I..I was thinking of getting out my canvas today. Have plans to paint”
That was easy.
I spent a good amount of time reading, browsing, watching old albums, munching little goodies, humming my favorite songs..”
It was fun !
Then came a phone call from him :
” Hey, how is your painting coming along?”
“I am starting in about 10 minutes and will be there before 7 ”
Wow, that was close.
I hurried to get out my paint and canvas.Oh, how I love it when in the right mood and mind set.Alas! this was not one of those times.This time, it was nothing more than a means of pretext..
Not a thing came up in the mind.So I started on a scene of sunrise..literally forcing myself to start at it!
He came back and saw me busy ( at least I looked like I was).
After an hour, I completed , not surprisingly, my worst work so far on the canvas. I hated it.
It was time for dinner and I went to him “Let’s have dinner”
“You are done with the painting?”
“Uh..yes.But, I tore it up”
“What?! Why?You spend all this time and effort and then tear it ? You could have spent that time with friends instead!”
Well, I had a nice evening 😉
