A Tap on the other Shoulder

13 April 2018

She was on my left. To my right, no one sat, for there was no one. But someone tapped my right shoulder yet again. I thought it was her. I tapped her from the other side. She turned back. She turned further. Now she was facing me. And I was facing her. And I saw her face. Lit in the moonlight. Illuminated from top. Dark from the bottom. It was not her. It was no human. Another tap on my shoulder. I noticed her neck. It has rotated by 270 degrees. Her body still faced the front. My phone beeped. I could not move. I have never seen a scarred face so close to mine. My phone beeped again. My heart was pounding. I noticed that the optic nerves were visible in the eye socket, since one of the eyeballs were missing. Instead the eyeball was in her mouth. She was chewing it. My shoulder got tapped again. I looked down momentarily into the vibrating phone. She was calling me. I accepted the call. ‘It’ looked down. I looked up. ‘It’ looked back up having swallowed the eyeball. It smiled. I say ‘it’, for it looked no more like her. I heard a voice out of my phone. A voice that I knew. My voice. It asked whether I knew where she was. I don’t remember making that call. A drop of saliva dripped onto my screen. It was smiling. Suddenly, I noticed its hand. There was a phone that looked like hers. In it, I was video calling her. Another tap. I turned back. She was there. Looking scared. Sitting on my left with her phone in her ear.My eyes widened. I looked back. It was no more there. I turned back, she was to my right. I turned again, my left side was empty. I was dumbstruck. She was indeed sitting on my right. In her hand was a phone. That looked like mine. The phone in my hand looked like hers. Someone tapped me on my right shoulder. I thought it was her. I turned back, turned further and looked into her eyes. She seemed awfully scared to see my face. To scare her further, I swallowed my own eyeball.

What it is and would be....:-(

Last day a group of people from a Sri Lankan village cut the branches of a mango tree which was known to bear the sweetest mango ever and donated them to a group of scientist who offered to manipulate its genes and create more mango trees like that with the payment of a nominal fee. The mango tree clearly declared that cutting branches wasn’t a deal, but people didn’t care. Today morning just as everyone went to the tree to pluck a few fruits, they were socked to see that all the yellow, red mangoes have been replaced with green pale bitter gourds.
This news teaches us that, Greed is the end of all good.😰😥😰:(😱😨

Horror movie gets voted as the “Funniest Film Ever” after laughing gas tank leaks during Award Ceremony

30 February,0055: IBDB gave it 11.3/10 in the horror movie genre while Fresh Potatoes gave it 103.8% rating for excellent portrayal of vampires and life threatening background music. One man said, “I was watching another movie in the next theatre, but the film was so creepy that all of us in the adjacent theatre were admitted to hospital due to extreme shock due to fear.” Everyone who watched the film were reported spot dead after the first minute of the 4-hour movie. It was so creepy that the director, editor and the lead actors were themselves scared to death (and this is not a hyperbole!). Its one minute trailer has been declared to be the most lethal weapon, even more dangerous than atom bomb, by the governments, and has been permitted for free usage during war!
The biggest question, after all these complements, was that how on Earth did this film win The title of Funniest Film Ever voted by both the audiences and jury. The reason as investigated by the International Detective Committee, was a mysterious leak of Laughing Gas during the Award Ceremony. It intoxicated the people and saved their lives from this lethal movie!
Hence we learn once again that Laughter is the Best Medicine(even if it is induced by Laughing Gas).
