Last Thursday, as I was polishing my spectacles, they snapped in half at the bridge, leaving me with two lenses with hockey sticks attached to them. Thankfully, I was at work and I was able to use QuickFix to hold the two pieces together till I could drive to an optician who could fix it.
During the weekend, I accidentally sat on a glass topped table, which shattered, making a big mess and scratching my backside. While cleaning up, I got another cut on my foot.
On Monday, it was really windy. The glass door to our office swung open, was caught in a gust, and came down in a shower of shards.
On Wednesday, when I was showing the glass door repair guy the handle of the door, a small piece of glass stuck to it cut my finger and drew blood.
On Thursday, one of us was trying to get some water in a glass from the water cooler, when it shattered.
Seeing all this, and fearing a dosham in glass, we decided to get Murali to smash a white pumpkin smeared with vermillion to appease whatever it was that was causing this mayhem. Unfortunately, his aunt died early on Friday, and the pumpkin-smashing couldn’t be done.
If I were the superstitious type, I probably would have gone in search of a priest to perform some rituals to rid us of the evil that was stalking us. Not being such a one, I blog about it instead!
BTW, testing out BlogDesk, and posting from it.
