For a Few Dollars More

I was sitting in my cabin staring at the monitor like a dead guy’s eyes focused towards the sky waiting for the Gods to relieve him. Thankfully, my only source of wake up calls would be the hunger groan from my gut reminding me occasionally that I needed energy to at least look alive.

After one such call, I had to make my way to the pantry to grab some sort of a source of caffeine. A bottle would suffice. But to the best of my dim memory, caffeine was seldom used raw at a work place. It came in the form of beverages. So I resort to coffee and it came free. But again, I would be inhuman to drink a gallon so I get one bottle equivalent of the energy substance and stay awake for the rest of my days. Anyway, on my way to the pantry, I managed to get a glimpse of the outside world (it’s relatively a small world inside) and found that the weather was something that begged for a jay walk.

With some thoughts lingering, I had my coffee and got back to my seat like just another mundane machine running on routines and timetables giving least importance to the beauty of the human mind comprising of uniqueness in crazy thoughts and fun.

Lessons Learnt:
1. We think about endless possibilities to simulate machines whilst sitting in a dead end cabin of work.
2. We make plans to make machines do anything while we stay crippled in our easy chair drafting them.
3. The thinking process of the mind has shifted from closing of eyes to shutting of the mind.
4. There are other stones left unturned.
