Random thoughts on the go

1. Went to the mall after 20 months perhaps. Had to buy chappal. Went to Crossword Book store, got lost there and came back 🙂

My today’s shopping

2. Good to see life back to normal. I feel good for dahi papdi waale bhaiya, SIM card waale bhaiya, e rickshaw waale bhaiya, shakarakand waali Didi, and all those people whose employment depended on going out.

3. As I was going through the Crossword Book Store today, I also thought of fundamental rules of life. Here we go:

4. A good question for you: What parts of “normal” are even worth returning to?

The stop the shopper game

Yesterday my mind played tricks on me. It fooled into making me believe that I needed to buy a lot of stuff.

So off I went to the shopping mall with a list.

Spent time in one store, scrolling and found nothing.

Spent time in store #2, tried clothes and bought nothing.

Entered store #3, where I always find my clothing of my choice. As I was taking the staircase towards the women’s section, a sudden thought hit me: “Where are you wandering around? You already have a lottt of clothes. Going there, you’re going to spend at least 5K for just 2-3 pieces of clothing. For what? For what Bro? Just to stop wearing the existing clothes?”

This thought hit my mind, and within 30 seconds I came downstairs and got out of the mall.

Time was wasted. It’s better to learn from sunk costs and not to sink further.
