Careers, relationships, and weekends, three things I really avoid planning. They unplan themselves. I have a second tactic - fleeting possibilities. Have as many as you want, as you fancy. I, prefer having a lot of them. It’s less disappointing. This coming weekend for instance, holds a lot of fine possibilities.
I could prevent the dusty demise of my Jim Jarmusch ‘Dead Man’ or Terry Gillian ‘Brazil’ DVDs, and finally watch them. Or I could paint the sleepy walls of my new rented apartment with a bunch of mad hatters. I could even (possibly) head off to Purushwadi village, four hours away from Mumbai by Jeep, with ‘Triple Distilled’, the band. Or I could do what advertising guys do best, eat, drink, rinse and repeat.
But, but, I do know one thing for certain. Monday always comes.
