A number that is bad if it is your account balance, but would be wonderful if it was preceded by a non-zero number and a huge number of zeroes; also, a number that would be wonderful if only we could use it in association with the COVID-19 cases.
Although the news doesn’t look hopeful, I hope and pray that we get there soon enough.
On an entirely difference note, at home, we used to have this inside joke that if we don’t prepare well for an exam, we would end up with zero, also referred to as “Aana mutta” in Malayalam, which roughly translates to “Elephant’s egg”. It was a direct reference to what our scores would be!
I have had a lot of people reaching out to say that they loved this series. I have a good news for them – The A2Z one-liners may be over, but One-liner Wednesdays will continue. 🙂 Check back every Wednesday at 8PM IST for more interesting one-liners.
Do keep a lookout for my A2ZChallenge Reflections post! 🙂 It’ll be up in a few days.
It was an honour to participate and successfully complete my third A2ZChallenge. I have had a lot of fun this April. I have made so many friends and I have found a lot of blogs that I will continue to follow even after this A2Z. The A2Z also helped me return back to active blogging and I got back to writing fiction after a break! 🙂
As for my #A2ZChallenge community, thank you for sharing great tips to open jars, slice onions without crying, reduce the “saltiness” of a dish, and for helping me believe that I wasn’t the only one who was very unfortunate when it came to running into trouble with auto-correct, cooking troubles (yes, “smoked” is a whole new flavour!), dealing with dust, misplacing my keys, standing in queues, forgetting my umbrella at critical times and so much more! Thank you for your faith and encouragement. This lockdown got a whole lot easier thanks to you and A2ZChallenge. Stay safe, take care. Do keep visiting. 🙂
I had thought about publishing these one-liners as an ebook. But procrastination reared its ugly head.
I look forward to the next AtoZChallenge and I have already decided that my theme will be flash fiction. 🙂
I was glad to be the source of some humour and inspiration to you during these very difficult times. I hope you had as much or even more fun than I did. The fun and humour will continue. Keep checking regularly for other flash fiction pieces – tiny tales, short stories, and six word stories. 🙂
This is day #37 of the lockdown here in India. Hope you and your family are safe and well. Stay safe. Take care.
