Sitting Capped, 55 Slapped!

Meghna and Pritish, after a few inky shades in their years of courtship, had managed to lead a moderately happy married life. The moment in hand was a crucial one.

"Aaye hayte youoo-oo-oo, cold hearted Meghna!"

Minutes back,

Bucket of cold water emptied on Pritish.

"Your body's dirt was demolished after one week of upheaval!"



Why some things can't be spoken openly?

It was just another medical problem, causing unbearable, abnormal discomfort! He didn't inform his parents fearing how they'd reciprocate, not friends to avoid news spreading like fire in forest.

His mother during teenage years had apprised him of taking precautions.

It plagued him now. Itch-guard didn't help either!

;) :D

PS: I'm not a winter lover, in fact I despise it, frost bite, the kind of clothes making you look more like a bear, sleepy lazy bums all around!

But the fun lies in watching people who are almost aquaphobic or precisely speaking, ablutophobic, mummy runnind behind her kid to catch hold of him and splash water on his body after days or weeks:P

Love it:D
I was a kid too!!*nostalgia*
Hey n I took a bath everyday, almost!!!;)

Kick the blues, have a Jaunty January!:)

Hahahahahahahaahaa..... :D lol...
It was humourous re. :-)
The way you started I thought it was going to be a love story, only to realize later it was just an advertisement coming on DD1 regarding the importance of cleanliness!! :D
And ablutophobic??! You should've been an etymologist.
Enjoyed reading. You too have a Jaunty January, Jaunty Rhythm! :-)

Raksha Raman said...

Now that was a hilarious one! Unexpected twist and loved it. You are no doubt very talented. It'd be awesome if you can update blogger more frequently! Liked it a lot!

Haddock said...

I know how it is.
I remember a friend who was posted in Kashmir who said "just to take a bath you have to remove so many clothes and after bath again put on so may layers"

Hi Jaunty,
May I ask about the name you use here, Jaunty anima? Why is it written that way? One capitalized, one not?

I like your blog, so I'm giving you an award. I have to give it to ten bloggers or I will have great misfortune. (no, not really).
Please go Here for the details.

Jaunty anima said...

Jaunty anima said...

@Sid:You felt the chill too!!

Can unnerstand...The temperature has dropped down as never before!:(

@Insignia:I always pretend to take things seriously n that shows in my writing too and the end result is there to see...!

Jaunty anima said...

Thank you!!*blushes*

Jaunty anima said...

My hands and feet have a story to tell every winter!!
That's the main reason I hate winters so fact the correct way to describe it is...HORRENDOUS!

N if winters treats you well..then go n sip that hot cup of coffee, have fun out covered in woolens:)

Jaunty anima said...

Jaunty anima said...

Ohh...thanks a lot Greg!!

M on ur blog straight away...!!

N yes...That pattern of writing my name that way was a random one!
Noone figured it out earlier!

яノςんム said...

yet another abortion! painful.. even i wrote something like tht..
and the second was hilarious :D

i love winters though :D

яノςんム said...

P.S. i find it rude myself when ppl point out tht i wrote something like n do ceck out.. but yeah, i really find it surprising when i come here every time and find the topic u wrote on i wrote em earlier :D
even the back n white thing and now the abortion thing!

Jaunty anima said...

Arre...No it's absolutely fine u pointed out....

But the first one was not at all related to abortion..guess u misinterpreted it!!Meghna empties that bucket to demolish the dirt of Pritish's body!!gosh...where does abortion come there?

N yes, black n white thing is a common topic...many people have written abt it...

M no plagiarist, if u think so!!
Or may be like they say, "Great minds think alike!";)

SG said...

Nice one. Is that what the proverb "throwing cold water" means. Loved it.

Skywalker said...

why is it that fiction 55 are always sumthing with trick ending...??
take my advice try writing a longer thriller...

Anonymous said...

You. Woman...

Stay the hell away from me!


Jaunty anima said...

Well...that proverb means to stop something that the person is enthusiastic about...while here the case is...they make people do something they are least enthusiastic abt;)

Well that's wat fiction 55 is all abt..what is a story of 55 words with a straight end?

N I'm gonna heed your advice for sure!Wrote one, which is not good enough to be I'll try another:)

Jaunty anima said...


You haven't taken a bath today?
I should be running then :o


Pesto Sauce said...

Winter must be hard in Jammu, though its no less severe in Gurgaon

Jaunty anima said...

Yeah true, it's almost the same here..unbearable winters!:(

NesQuarX said...

I don't like baths in the winter... Though I take one at least four days a week, the neighbours always get to know when the first splash hits me...

Jaunty anima said...


Now that's really brave on your part..There are few boys, I know who claim they take a bath once in a month...
Kudos to you ;)

PS I'm not being a sexist...boys usually are into this skipping-a-bath;)

яノςんム said...

lol :) i never meant plagiarism... :) i too meant 'great minds think alike' ;)

Jaunty anima said...

haha...I misinterpreted this time then..
