Sleep... and a book

Mom has always said that its very comfortable to sleep next to me because I don't move at all once I've slept. So, there are no kicks, pushes or any kind of violence to the person next to me.
Yesterday, I got a proof of this motionless sleep routine of mine. I was really tired when I went to bed yesterday. I remember transferring some data to my pendrive, that I had to give to the lovely little boy I so badly want to adopt.

After putting away my laptop and all the dozens of stuff on my bed, I was finally ready to sleep only to find that the pendrive was still there. I lied down anyway and kept the drive on my stomach.
umm... yea you read right-- stomach. Tummy. Don't ask me why. There was no other place to keep it I guess.
Today morning when I woke up, (without an alarm!!) I found that my pendrive was exactly where I had kept it. I hadn't even moved enough for it to slip off me!

P.S.: I'm reading 'P.S. I Love You' and I'm loving it! I can bet the author did not intend to make it a self help book for the love lost and depressed folks, but it sure feels like that. Its like a tutorial, disguised as an inspiring story, on how to bounce back and live and be happy too!

Sanket: I don't know about my dreams but apparently I have been this way ever since I was a kid.
'P.S. I love you' is a movie too. People who've read the book as well as seen the movie tell me never to watch the movie :P

Humbl: uh.. who told u I am going through a break up? I still maintain I am single. Silly boy! I just said that the book seems to be a good self help book. Its a story book baba.. lol!!

who are you kidding...
people aren't rubber balls. Once you fall, you crash. No one bounces back.

At best you can survive and accept living the rest of your life limping or buying a crutch.

Shruti,

You are so stable girl, is it? Good. Hope you find your true love soon and put this book to use.

Take care

Sunshine: hehe.. it must be a nightmare sleeping next to u ;)

Shaiz: she never moved either? :P

Hershey: of course u can. Well nt exactly bounce. But u can take a while to get up, but u sure can, if u believe in urself that u can. Some others can just crib and cry for the rest of their lives. It all depends on how one wants it to be for themselves.

Jack: err.. no thanks. I'm sure u didn't mean what u just said! U sound like the stupid doctor contestant on KBC who told Amitabh Bachhan that he wanted AB to be his family patient!

That's craaazy, Shruti.. if I laid that still I'm sure I'd be too stiff to move in the morning!!

P.S. I Love You... I saw the movie, it inspired me to read the book. I loved both and own both!
