What a day!!

As soon as I woke up I turned on my laptop and typed in google “US OPEN 2010” and the very first result was Rafael Nadal 6-4, 5-7, 6-4, 6-2 – Novak Djokovic. This really made me thrilled. If I was so exalted then how would he have been when he had won the last point? Many many congratulations to him for his maiden US open title.

I was bit late for the office today. As I entered into the room I saw my manager is already there. He is a very punctual guy. But he didn’t say anything. I didn’t have any work as of now so after around an hour he asked me “to go home and enjoy” as you don’t have anything to do today. I slipped away from office at around 12:30. Second felicitous moment of the day.

I walked away from the office arena with a friend. Planned for a movie but they were showing only “Dabang” and “We are family” at that time. I had already watched “Dabang” and didn’t want to watch “We are family”. Third one joined us after a short while. While we were there we had some eye pleasing scenes. We didn’t have camera to capture some snaps but it is good sometimes not to carry it because then you fully engrossed yourself in clicking business and forget to enjoy the real moments.

Our appetite was increasing. We spotted KFC nearby. Had hefty snacks there. But what I saw there was really impressive or what I can say is just palpable. I was so moved away by seeing those men and women working in KFC were all handicapped or were suffering some kind of physical disorder. I mean this is something which makes a real difference from the people who always blabber. They should learn something from them.

This friend had to buy a watch for his younger brother. After all the business we were ready to go back. We took a taxi as one of my friend had to catch the office bus that leaves from office at 6:30 PM. We were late so took a taxi. I hardly hire a taxi until it is very important. As its reading was soaring my heart beat was increasing with that rate (I mean literally).

Finally a real sad moment as MI lost to South Australia. They had posted a very good total but their fielding let them down. But yh that brought up another day. :P :P
