Study, U stupid thing!! NOT Sleep!!!

This happens before every exam. No Kiddin!! Without fail!! Most predictably I have this tug-of-war with my brain!!

We HAVE to have this fight every bloody time!!

I mean, cummon!! How difficult is it to understand one simple instruction? Study!

That’s all I am asking it to do and it won’t listen to me!!

I didn’t have this much trouble training my dog you know… And this thing is supposed to be a part of me! Supposedly an in-disposable part of my anatomy! It is supposed to help me look good!! And tell me how does NOT studying fit anywhere into the picture??

I swear I have never come across anything as stubbornly non co-operative as my brain. I mean even Gandhians co-operated more  with the British!

When I drag it out for the evening runs, it first claws onto everything including the door mat like a cat being dragged out by the tail! So completely unwilling to get out that I have to use headphones as a bait to get it out. Then once out on the street, it runs way out of control to all possible corners of Fantasy Land. (a side effect of which is a stupid grin pasted to my face)

Finally when I do get it to come back, it retreats right into the fridge and sits cuddled up with that bar of Bournville.  *sigh*

And the Before-The-Exams time is hell!

It doesn’t just not co-operate. It rebels!

Me: Ok, we’ve gotta finish one chapter today.

Brain: *hums some tune*

Me: Are you listening? We’re doing one chapter today!

Brain: *startled* Wha..?? You talkin to me?? Sorry, I was distracted…

Me: Yeah… I kinda got that…  But listen, We’ve gotta get ready for the exams… So let’s do some work  today.. ok.. ?

Brain: *absently toying with a thought* hmm…..


Brain: *jumps with a start* What! I heard you!

Me: Then react will you?

Brain: What do you want me to do? Dance the tango?

Me: No, but you sure could be a little less frigid about it!

Brain: Yeah.. fine!! Let’s cram ourselves up… You with junk food and me with junk answers… Why not!

Me: Yeah… whateva.. Let’s just start ok..  * rummaging through notes* so what do we have here… let’s begin with the Press Laws and Ethics paper…. See, we could start with the Right to Information Act or with Defamation Laws. What do you want to do…??

Brain: ….

Me: Are you listening??? what do you want to do?? RTI, or Defamation??


Me: What the heck are you DOING!! Answer me!!

Brain: …ZZzzzZZZ….zzzZZZzzz…

Me: Ah darn it!! Wake up you dumb thing!! I said STUDY!!! not SLEEP!!!

Brain: *turns over and snores*

Me: *kicks it with a caffeine shot*  Get up!! Sleep once we’re done with the Right to Information..

Brain: I HAVE A RIGHT TO SLEEP!!! TO HELL WITH ALL OTHER RIGHTS!!!!  *turns over again n sleeps… SNORES!!*

Me: *~*Sigh*~*
