BTW


By the way, as I continued exploring new blogs via the A-Z blogging challenge, I came across a ghost story. I am not a big fan of horror movies, but I like some ghost movies (yeah Casper). So I challenged myself to write one someday. I guess I might have to do a lot of thinking and since I was getting late for work, I decided to write something easier this once.

But often when you discard the tough path to take an easier one, someone up there doesn't like it. And my Internet connection went off... Just like that when I had just hit the New Post tab on blogger!

Then it hit me, it is Tuesday! Sometimes we have load shedding on Tuesdays and this time the broadband provider had a power cut before it affected our building. But I was damn keen on completing a short post before I leave for work. So I called up the Internet guy. Thankfully, he said there was no powercut at his place. I requested him to come and check my computer. And as luck would have it, he was in the same complex monitoring a new internet connection. He arrived in 15 minutes! Looked like I would complete the post for the day in time.


So I directed him to my home office and he started doing some technical things on the computer. Local area connection, DOS Prompt... Damn I never understood these things. So I was glad he asked me for a glass of water. I wanted to be away to avoid an technical question he might ask any moment. The last time I felt like a fool when he asked me if I have changed the network settings and I quickly replied, "No, I am just following some new blogs on Networked Blogs!"

So while I was in the kitchen pouring water in the glass, he called out, "Your Internet is working fine, why did you make me come all the way?"
I was surprised and carried the glass to the room. On my way I heard him blabber, "These women don't know a thing about computers... Wasted my time!"

Confused and furious I entered the room. He wasn't there. He was nowhere! The main door was locked from inside. The Internet connection was on and in the New Post field, all of the above was written!

This post is written by me for the A-Z Blogging Challenge where I will post every day (except Sundays) all through the month of April. Most importantly, I will blog thematically on topics from A to Z! So for April 1, I chose a topic starting with the letter A, for April 2 the letter B and so on.

  5. Luckily it wasn't too spooky - think of "him" as a benevolent ghost.

  8. Nice one Annu :) It's really different to what I expected!! What's more scary: 1) he turned up when you called or 2) he was a ghost?
