Why are all the “Good Ones” taken?

…..Confusion Alert!……

There is guaranteed confusion in the post below. Chances are, all will fail to make sense out of it, including I, me and Myself. Don’t blame me. **I play safe!!**


Now this is just what I don’t like about you readers, jumping to conclusions so early. see? Just an innocent title is enough to have your brains working overtime. NO, I’m not talking about MEN here. At least, not ONLY about men. πŸ˜›

Okay, so I was lamenting on how all the good ones are already taken, how ALL that’s tempting in life is sold, and how cruel it is to poor me. Sob Sob. This confused and irritated look on your face, uff, I know you don’t understand. And chances are, that you’ll never understand. Why, you might even be in my list of “Good Ones” – think now, are you taken? hmmph!

I know, I know. πŸ˜€
I know it made little sense. I’m in a trance, and I’m not even reading what my key-board is typing in here. *blame it on da key-board!* So before I choke you, wring you and bore you, let me give you a brief account of all that’s “good” and “taken“.

Most of the times when I go out shopping, I end up being broke and still there are less times when I am really-really happy with what I’ve got. And then, just at this very moment of sulking on how-very-stoooopidly-I-spent, I’ll see a girl dressed in exactly what I wanted but didn’t get. The reason? No silly, not because I am disillusioned or confused, but because she took it even before i could see it! It was already taken! Then there are times when I like a pair of shoes, taken by someone else. A pair of sexy ear-rings at Lajpat Nagar, taken quickly by someone else while I was busy imagining them going so well with my red top. A cute sorry-madam-only-one-piece-left shrug at Incense, Sarojini, taken by someone else before I could decide. And many raise to power infinite plus 25 other examples. And this has been like my on-going-misery since school days, when we used to dutch, and everyone was supposed to order a different dish and then all were supposed to share, but obviously the one who ordered a particular dish got to eat it more, and back then also the dish I wanted was invariably ordered or taken by someone else. Not to forget, the guys I think are cute and nice, have all-fuckin-ways been taken!! These “rare” good guys who are worth hitting on, are spotted by someone else light years before me . All these guys are real good guys, not fun loving guys; or maybe fun loving guys turned to good guys by, again, someone else. Hell! So where does it leave me? Yes, you got it right, it leaves me confused.

So, in short – everything that interests me or might have interested me, has been taken, sold, claimed and out of reach. Poor me! I know that all that’s “taken” before, is depreciating too, yes. But that doesn’t stop the pain. Ouchhhhhhh!!!!

PS: Just because I seemed to have found the purrrfect date to publish this post, doesn’t mean I’m cribbing about something or someone in particular. And hey you, its really not about you! Hello, you all know I am not that focused!

    As I can recollect Adii!!! there has been a tried and tested theme from a long long tyme…

    “Whatever happens , happens for Good”

    “Whatever will happen , will happen for Good”

    ” Good Men come and Good Men Go”

    “Someone, Somewhere, is made for You , and the fate is pre-set “

    So … cm’on.. dont feel the pain.. cheer up .. as u have not lost anythin.. coz it was nvr yours actually!!

    things!! which belong to u , r yours, no one can take it from u.. no one.. only the thing is that u discover these things slowly .. with time

    DON πŸ™‚

    We frnds here have a saying…if there are two meaning for a statement then the first one coming to your mind is the correct one πŸ™‚ so the for the title the first meaning coming to mind is the correct one as thats when you feel more “oh no!! why always wid me” πŸ™‚

    Deprivation could invoke a couple of responses.Either you could sit n ponder as to why it happened or you could go ahead n strive for something that could make you feel good again.If its not at Sarojini Nagar, you go to Lajpat and if its not there, you go to *** (don’t know !!)..While you were searching for this good stuff( ear-ring which you considered was really cool )in the markets, you could keep the analytical part of brain turned ON as there is always something better.In pursuit of something which we earlier thought would be the good for us, we often come across things that are “better than good”.. But,since we are too obsessed with getting that very stuff, we don’t update our choices.

    So,What i perceive of the whole story that i told, is the fact there are always “better ones” and they are the ones we should always look for and mind it— they are never taken…..

    You could still look for those who are — ‘taken but not stirred’ πŸ™‚ (due apologies to James Bond’s previously popular line!)
