Challenge Accepted #32

Since I found that asking people to link their entry to the challenge on their blog actually reduced the number of people participating in it, I though of doing a u-ey and posting their entries on my blog. I don’t know if some were lazy or thought that… well let’s leave it at that. I am thankful for all of you who took the time and effort to link this challenge and those of you who replied to it in the comments section.

I am posting the entries for the TPS#32 that was posted on the 10th of March. I plan to give 10 days for you guys to take up the challenge and then link the replies the Saturday after next.

Last week’s phrase was –

“”I’m sorry, ” I said……..”

The replies (in no particular order)

  1. Kritika – “As I ate his slice of pizza too.”
  2. Aadhira – ” I said To HB, for joining in so late!”
  3. Ted – “…to the puppy who wanted to walk longer in the rain.”
  4. Elusive Trope – “but since I had already closed the car door, I doubt she heard me.”
  5. Taruna – “as I knew I’d won without even fighting.”
  6. Alice – ” I said when I kissed his sleeping face knowing he’d never understand. I left his keys on the kitchen table and pulled the door closed behind me.”
  7. Victo – “… as I readied my tools.”
  8. Borderline Med – “but I knew well enough the damage was done.”
  9. Harshi – “Before blocking him on What’s app”

Thank you all for playing along. I don’t think I have missed anyone, but if that’s the case, please accept my apologies and drop a line in the comments box.



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.
