The question over at Booking Through Thursdays for the week:
Quick! It’s an emergency! You just got an urgent call about a family emergency and had to rush to the airport with barely time to grab your wallet and your passport. But now, you’re stuck at the airport with nothing to read. What do you do??
And, no, you did NOT have time to grab your bookbag, or the book next to your bed. You were . . grocery shopping when you got the call and have nothing with you but your wallet and your passport (which you fortuitously brought with you in case they asked for ID in the ethnic food aisle). This is hypothetical, remember….
If it is a family emergency, I wouldn’t be able to concentrate on reading anyways. So, I would just sit back and think, or observe people in the time I have got. Maybe, if it is a long-distance flight, I would buy a book or some magazines from the airport book store.
Secondly, I more often than not carry a notepad and pen with me wherever I go. So, I guess I would begin scribbling. 🙂
PS: Chetan Bhagat’s new novel is releasing some time in May. I hope this one is as much fun as his two earlier books. Looking forward to it.
PPS: I finished reading Messiah’s Handbook by Richard Bach. I found it AWESOME! I wanted to post about my favourite quotes from the book, but then realised I would have to type out the whole book! It’s a sort of guide book from the Messiah. The procedure is – think about a question that is troubling you in life, close your eyes and select a page at random, read what’s on that page. Interpret it and you will find the answer to your question. I tried this out on a couple of occasions, and, though it might sound far fetched, I felt it works. Somehow.
