Me & the Common Cold


I still remember that cold and gloomy winter evening. I was staying home from school for the past few days due to the same nagging problem that would always catch up with me this time of the year - that brutal, irritating and highly distressing common cold! I was fed up of feeling sick and miserable and desperately wanted a change of scene - anything that would help me raise my spirits and fight this demon before it got the better of me.

So I convinced my sister and mother to take me to the market close by. They told me that I was crazy to even think of this on such a cold and gloomy evening, given my "condition" of sneezing once too often.

In between wiping my nose and clearing my throat, I told them that this is what I needed to do to feel better. They finally gave in to my requests, provided I would pile myself with enough woollens to keep me warm and protected. On reaching the market, my sister remembered that she needed a new pair of sneakers and so we went into this small, yet nice shoe shop. As my mother helped my sister choose a pair of sneakers, I went over to the sandals section and walked past the colourful line up of strappy, flat and high heeled sandals.

Just as I was admiring their beautiful range, my eyes starting watering like they always do whenever I have a severe cold. This was not new for me and so I continued looking at the merchandise. What I did not realize was that a sales person was noticing me all along. What happened next was truly hilarious and I remember it till date. The sales person went up to my mother and asked her politely to kindly consider buying a pair of sandals for me as well - your other daughter who is crying as you are not buying anything for her.

My mother was shocked to hear this and came up to me. On hearing what had just happened I couldn't stop laughing while drying my tear laden eyes.

The sales person was totally confused by now, but slowly understood the real reason for my "crying". He, too, had a good laugh along with us and hoped that I would feel better soon. As for buying something for me too, it took some time to explain to everyone that I was in no mood to shop. I had come to the market to cheer myself up and everyone helped me to do just that!

We came home after a little while and I felt much better thanks to this short, yet very entertaining outing. That monstrous cold went away in a day or two but left me with some fond memories that bring a smile on my face even today.
