My Neighbours: The Shopping Spree

It is 12.02 IST. I just saw around fifty buttery-yellow-white butterflies and several bees flying in the same direction.

It wasn’t a Let’s-go-on-a-community-picnic flying…

It was Gucci-has-90%-off-on-all-products and Hugh-Jackman’s-in-the-shop-signing-autographs flying…

There was a race in small groups with a lot of jostling and I was wondering where the party is. I saw it all in a couple of minutes at the window.

I wanted to stay longer and to see if there are more butterflies in the area and wait for them to return with bags of autographed merchandise, but I had a virtual meeting exactly at the moment. Sigh!

  1. ‘Shaily and her whimsical winged neighbours’, I like the sound of that. Maybe we should create a short video on that. You’ll be the star of the show, I’ll be your supporting actor. You’re welcome. I’m that kind. πŸ˜‰
