*Cue to play the Jaws theme song*

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “1984.”


The question posed here is this – “You are locked in a room with your greatest fear. Describe what’s in the room”

As I open the door, all I can think of is the incentive I shall get for this stupid dare I took up. There I was in swimming gear swooning into the room, the crystal blue water is always soothing to swim in. It’s like a swimming pool in a room and that’s always fun isn’t it? So what’s the catch? (He He He Fishermen Joke) As I peer through my goggles I can see a large object breathing on the floor of the room. It’s part white and part charcoal black and has a devilish grin…with more teeth than I can count.

My heart rate drops…it felt like my heart suddenly got up and said “Ain’t nobody got balls for that” and just hid in a box that had sign saying “Do not open till all clear of ‘shark’ objects”. As it swam towards me I could hear the background music go dun-dun! dun-dun! dun-dun-dun-dun-dun-dun-dun, da-na-na! (You wont believe me but my heart is racing just typing this blog post).

I swam to the sea bed I mean room floor or whatever. Since Deep Blue Sea, I had decided. I could die in the mouth of a lion, or burn to death or choke to death or get stabbed to death but NEVER will I even give an opportunity to myself to die in the mouth of a Great White Shark. Yes, I hate sharks. They are ugly scary. They are huge. They attack snorkling swimmers thinking they’re seals and then spit them out when they realise otherwise. They are scary as shit. Did I say they have teeth that can carve you into party streamers? Maybe that’s what Shark Birthday parties are like. A seal cake, human party streamers, blood shots, dancing to the Jaws Theme Song and all the jazz. Getting back to my story, I had watched this 48 minute documentary about the Great White Shark. That documentary spoke about it’s behaviour and characteristics. Remember this, if you, also like me do not want to die in a mouth of a shark, Sharks will never attack you sideways. They will always try and catch you by surprise i.e. from the under (See, devilish son of a wicked shark). So it’s best to always level yourself with it, or to swim sideways. I never thought the peeing on yourself trick would work with me, you see even to give a urine test, my bladder acts pricey even if I drink 2 lts of water, so when I’d probably need to pee during a shark attack my bladder will go “Nope. Not in the mood today woman”. Thus while the shark knew I was onto something it kept circling the room. That is not a good sign either, they always circle their food. It’s a mark of territory…like hey! that’s my food, I will now circle it because I can’t really take a marker and write my name on it or stamp “Shark Food” on it. Now it was all up to me to escape this living hell.

Stay tuned. Part 2 coming up. Yes. That is how the shark looks like in my story. He wants you to come back. Or else he will eat you like a Human BBQ Cocktail.



Tourist Trap – June 3rd 2013

Daily Prompt: Tourist Trap

What’s your dream tourist destination — either a place you’ve been and loved, or a place you’d love to visit? What about it speaks to you?
Photographers, artists, poets: show us VACATION.

Being a piscean Ive always been a water baby. Some might find it strange but i learnt how to swim on my own, maybe by observing…as a kid I would love to play with water! So it would be stating the obvious that my favourite tourist destination is Maldives :’)


The different shades of blue that are visible to our eyes would prove to be a shocker to Miranda Priestly herself! Haha no really! Its incredible what colors the sky can burst into…pink, purple, lavender…yes even the skies there are specially made for me!
What Maldives also does is bring out various emotions in you which you never felt were even there in the first place…Its feeling butterflies in your stomach on a whole new level altogether!
From the feeling of serenity when the white sand merges into the crystal blue water…to the emptiness in you stomach as The Jaws Theme Track plays in your head when you look down at the sea bed and see absolutely nothing but darkness…sure you’re there swimming with the biggest shark in the world who is a vegetarian but what if he felt like feasting on variety? and what if he has non vegetarian friends just around the corner…I mean coral 😛
I love how Maldives brought out the photographer in me, it helped me face my fears, it helped motivate me to lose weight so that i could sit their next time bikini clad just watching as the waves wash the shore away leaving me memories that I would cherish forever and little sparkling shells as a memento for such a brilliant holiday! ❤
