Three Things

First:

Today morning, I signed a check. It took me about 8-9 test signatures before getting my original one. I realized that I’ve not used pen in past several months. That means, during past several months, I did not write even a word! Darn!

I immediately took a notepad & a gel-pen and starting writing whatever popped up in my mind. Boy, I found it difficult to write! My handwriting – blah! I feel sorry for myself. I’ve been so much dependent on computers that I almost forgot how to write! 50 years from now, when each one of us will have a computer to do everything we want to, will anyone care to ‘write’? Or we all will have to ‘type’? Or probably everything will be voice-activated? Will we give up ‘writing’ forever?

Why am I bothered so much?

Second:

Do not buy books from Crosswords.

Third:

Two days ago, a famous personality from the town said the following about me to my mother on phone –

“I’m very pleased to meet your son. I really liked the way he talks & it reflects that he belongs to a very good family. He has a bright future & one day he will earn a big name…..(and lot more 🙂 )”

…**slap** on face to those who told me that I’m average in communication skills.

    Sorry for the late comment,but cannot hold back, Dont mind ! 🙂

    You intend to say that you were signing a cheque and NOt a check ! Right 😉

    You very well know our love for correct English –
    You might think I am in fault-finding mode, you have every right to have your opinion!

    But i think this is the best way in which I can contribute to self as well as others’ learning !

    GVM,

    You have no clue how much I appreciate that you took out time to find out the mistake(?). Probably we refer different Dictionaries.

    Americal Heritage Dictionary has a 10th definition of word ‘Check(n)’ as –

    A written order to a bank to pay the amount specified from funds on deposit; a draft.

    Which is what I typed in my post. Kindly go through following link and search for words “American Heritage Dictionary” and then look at the 10th point under it.

    http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/check

    Kindly do not let this comment turn you off. Comments from my dearest readers are my only motivation to keep adding junk to this blog.

    Yours Truly,
    -The Big K-

    Well ! Thats the reason I never shy away from posting or blurting out a comment anywhere the moment I feel of doing so.

    You see, there is a learning involved everywhere. One just needs to find avenues however stupid they may seem to you at first thought!

    Thanks a lot for taking time to enlighten me with “American Heritage Dictionary” , It surely rocks !

    Perception matters Dood !
    Junk for someone is more often than not learning for someone else ! 🙂
