Sedation of the sybaritic

“I believe I once considerably scandalized her by declaring that clear soup was a more important factor in life than a clear conscience.”
-HH Munro
(The Blind Spot)

Bed time snacks pose a perplexing hesitation for a person of an unexcitable disposition. After all, you don’t want toast at one o’clock in the night. Also, there is not much you can unearth from your artless arsenal. You appreciate your lassitude as you feed on bananas and biscuits. Ofcourse, you don’t care that bananas score high on glycemic index as long as they are good for your soul. Ofcourse, you don’t even want to contemplate the nutritional appraisal of biscuits. You also don’t want to miss the look on your brother’s face on discovering the absentia of the same.

The ongoing similitude of your gravity does not discourage your habitude till the culpability of it starts weighing on your conscience. Thereon in, you take to having herbal tea. You see, it throttles your appetite.

Going out of context be excused, reading your blog can do wonders for someone trying to improve upon his vocabulary for GRE or something. For others though, it is much hard-work :)

Your perusal of my blog entails an imminent management entrance exam because not too many people read it.
Ofcourse, idleness of mind occasions horrific contigencies at inopportune junctures.

ps:Thanks but I can do simple posts too!!!!!!
pps:Good luck for your placements!

You confused GRE with GMAT I reckon.

Sushant said...

Huh! They were already sufficiently entangled, weren't they?

And don't call me Sir! I feel like a slow old man with a chalk in his hand and ink stains on his shirt when I see myself being called that :)

Aarushi said...

They were sufficiently entangled.
Nice analogy! Ok, I won't call you sir.
