Sixteen

Iffat tagged me with this meme recently. The rules are:

Once you’ve been tagged, you are supposed to write a note with 16 random things, facts, habits, or goals about you. At the end, choose 16 people to be tagged. You have to tag the person who tagged you. If I tagged you, it’s because I want to know more about you.

  1. Almost every day, I am humbled by the human body, by the study of God's creation

  1. I used to collect neckties. The first tie I ever bought was bottle-green one with Daffy Duck faces on it. I still have it.

  1. I wish I could fold clothes as well as the people at Macy's.

  1. I love bananas. Sweet, simple, versatile - I wish more people were bananas.

  1. I'm not quite sure how it happens but sometimes, when I meet someone, I tend to see them as the child they were. It's usually not very difficult. A lot of people retain that essence.

  1. I love daal chawal

  1. When I was younger, I used to read indiscriminately, just swallowing books whole. Now I get into arguments with them. It's amazing how much of modern literature is centred around this general predatory obsession with sex and misery. This annoys me. (And what makes it worse is that, a lot of the time, people, especially young people, come to a book for consolation or advice and they make themselves impressionable to the book's opinion only to absorb its cruelty.)

  1. I like driving through the car wash

  1. The lady who cuts my hair is an ICU nurse

  1. While I think money is important, I don't think I'm particularly materialistic. Me and mine are words that dissolve societies, not make them.

  1. As a family, we watch a lot of movies together. It's one of my favorite things to do when I'm home, watch a movie with my parents. The last one we saw was Taare Zameen Par. I remember my father, who was educated at boarding school, say that it was one of the best and worst experiences of his life.

  1. Have you hugged your mom today?

  1. I get migraines

  1. Gol guppay are irresistible

  1. I like myself when I'm working hard

  1. I love to laugh



I don't think I know 16 people but if you want to tag yourself please feel welcome.
