You Stole my Stomach!
Well! The realization of the following stuff came quite a while ago, but there’s something inside me that’s coaxing me to pen the stuff down. So, here it goes… Have you ever realized…that almost all the sensations and feelings that we (humans and not-so-humans) experience affects our stomach…and all the credit goes to our heart?! Seriously. I mean…okay…let’s see, In school or college, when you can’t (or don’t) complete your work even after the last date had been re-re-re-adjusted, and the teacher starts developing symptoms of Dolores Umbridge and one unfortunate day, when she asks you to stand up in front of the whole class…insults the life out of you and god-forbid you answer her back which leads to her final transformation into Umbridge and she asks you to step out of your bench (and face her head-on) then what is the immediate reaction that your body experiences? Just recollect one of those moments… at that very instant when you know that your Firebolt is inside some dark dingy closet that probably Malfoy is guarding and you’ve no where to go but in front of her…your stomach punches you hard! So hard that you want the earth to treat you like Goddess Sita and lovingly engulf you inside her! Don’t you feel like it? Like…your stomach clenches itself so much that for a millisecond you think that your belly has actually shrunk a few inches? See my point? It’s the stomach! Okay, another one… Think of the moment when you got something that you didn’t quite expect to be given to you… Like, when you got a surprise test on a Monday morning whose marks will be added in the finals! 😛 how did you feel? Like your whole world crashes down and the dreams that you weaved for your prep holidays before finals smashes into pieces? 😛 didn’t your stomach growl then? Sure it did! Next time, pay a li’l more attention to it. It might make you smile through the pain of the test. 😛 Next time, do remember to smile! 😛 Take one more: For those of you who, while driving, think that nothing’s gonna happen to you. You’re the king of the roads, everybody else is a fool, and you’re going to Hit the Road And Rock It Hard! \m/ okay, being less cynical, even for those who are the first timers on road, and are experimenting their not-so-developed driving skills on someone else’s vehicle… What happens when the road is oh-so-smooth! And your pillion is saying those encouraging (which sounds more like prayers for survival) words to you and you increase the speed just a li’l to fulfill your dream of flying in the air and TADA!! Wish Granted! You desperately search for the break and press the accelerator and AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!! And somehow the vehicle miraculously stops just when it is about to bang into a wall and the world around you comes to a standstill… Its not exactly your heart that stops beating…its your stomach kicking the hell out of you! I don’t ever want any of you to notice it, but next time…I hope you could smile when this piece comes to your mind 😛 Okay, enough of the painful stuff, now time for some butterflies! Yeah! Now! For those who’re in love… Remember the first time he/she said those words? Was it really your heart that flip-floped? 😉 No! It was your stomach! Didn’t it suddenly feel so light and then something whirled inside it and you couldn’t help smiling and calming yourself down and smiling again? *_* It was your stomach! Tumhara apna petu! 😛 you feel like hugging your pillow so tight so close to your stomach and oh! I have started blushing! 😛 See? And all you say is that the person has stolen your heart! Why so much prejudice against your own stomach? He/She stole your stomach!! When you laugh hard, you hold your stomach as if it would fly off! And still you say you had a “hearty laugh”. Justice denied? When your loved ones leave you, you cry or become upset and who do you punish? Your stomach…your very own stomach!! You stop eating as if that would bring them back! Its not your heart that’s broken! Its your stomach! That poor li’l tummy! 😥 Your voice comes not from your throat but from your stomach! When you look good, you treat yourself a chocolate! (stomach smiles) When you don’t look good, you diet! (stomach frowns) When your stomach’s upset (m sorry, but it’s a part of life :P) you can’t concentrate on anything….can you? next time, notice this! 😛 Well, m running short of examples, so your feelings are very much invited… And to tell you the truth, its time to cheer up my “petu” with some food…so I’ll be off! But remember…we really Really need to spend some time with our stomach…to listen to its worries and rejoice with its special moments! Stomach Revolution is on its way! Hehe 😛 I don’t care how ridiculous this stuff sounded, but I really had a great time writing it! 😀
