Two Phrase Story #5

He signed his name with a flourish……..

Muttering to himself, “The black often stops the red.”

Your turn!

About hbhatnagar

I need to fill this up with much better content than I had populated it with earlier. Why I write a blog maybe? I started blogging in 2009 or thereabouts. I was a newly turned atheist and wanted to converse with others of the same persuasion. We're not exactly a big population group in India! It didn't go very well and I sort of lost interest, posting a few things now and then. I got a lot more regular over the last few months and have been posting almost daily since February '15. There were many reasons why I gradually became more regular in posting, but one way or the other, here I am! So this blog has taken shape, being at different points in time my showcase, my comedy club, my art gallery, my book club, my therapist, my close friend, my innermost self....but always my little corner of the world. You are all welcome to visit and I hope you stay awhile! A few points about me because I don't want to lead anyone on(and trust me this does become an issue more often than I'd care to admit). I'm Indian, the brown-skinned variety; if race, ethnicity or skin colour is an issue, you don't have to get to know me any more than what you see on my blog. I'm 40, so if age is an issue, please be informed accordingly. I was a doctor, an ophthalmic surgeon for 10 years before I quit practice.

    • That is so lovely! Thank you for playing Amy! If this was kindergarten (and a pretty gruesome kindergarten it would be, if that were true!), you’d get a big gold star for this one! πŸ˜€

      • I meant it for people to post replies to on their blog, from where their followers might pick up the baton, but that didn’t work out. Now it’s one of those weekly things I like doing, like yesterday’s one-liner, and tomorrow’s pun that I still haven’t come up with. πŸ™‚
