I know its a bad word but I just couldn`t resist writing about mine. However weird that might sound to all you enlightened souls, but I`ve this undefined, unreasonable, ignorant love for Nestle Polo.

Yeah, I just can`t do without that 10 cm, perfect cylindrical pack wrapped in hues of white and green. Even a non-deliberate glance at the mint-with-the-hole seems to freshen me up and enliven my spirits. I know I`m addicted – I`m inadvertently chewing one when am consciously into something, I somehow just don`t feel when it got in, when all the peppermint melted away to the shallow dungeons of the stomach, obliging my taste buds with that icey, sugary coolness and lending me that enviable, perfect kissable breath!

I do feel its absence though : my conscience keeps pinching me all the time, “get up fucker, you are losing on something, you cannot work without it!”. Sometimes I do feel that`s true – if you`ve noticed, when people think, they normally tend to involve themselves in some kind of uncommon activity, say for eg. biting their fingernails or the pen or scratching their heads. I guess when I`m engrossed in some serious thought, I tend to channelize all my worries through that candy being roughed up against those 32 diamond-like stones and those waves of saliva on the tongue bed. Again, I don`t normally feel it but it seems a perfect plausible argument to accentuate my thinking prowess!

If the gravity of this lust hasn`t still dawned to you, then you can confront me anytime and check if I`m carrying this addiction on my shoulders [its normally placed safely in my bag]. And for the one who seems to have realised this first hand, aka my Doctor Daddy, he has this fearsome medical advice for his uncompromising son – “beta itna peppermint khaoge to mouth cancer ho jayega” !!

Naturally enough, I`m trying so damn hard to cut down on my Polo bills..not much success achieved as of yet though!

Anyway, that`s of my arbitrary timepaas. I guess each one of you does have something better if not equally weird, to bank upon while jerking your knees [:P] or may be some genuine stuff/activity you can`t jerk off your mortal existence.
