It seems that I have developed a habit of putting posts with a "questions mark" heading ! <
Now.. for the last 20++ something years (yep.. 20 ++ something.. not 40++ something as many think) .. I have had the pleasure of waking up on a particular day and let people greet me "Happy B'day".. and receive about 30 - 40 sms's ... and of cource participating in my Mother's annual "alms giving" on behalf of my B'day !
Though I never had a fancy bling bling B'day party for all these years, I never do regrett it... I would rather use that money on the Alm's giving more than boozing up free loaders ! . Now, if any of you does know.. I am Hybrid when it comes to religions and my mother is a devoted budhdhist (which explains the alms giving.. and religion is a complicated issue in my family)
But, sadely ! .. I am going to loose my B'day this year.
It's a complete loss I mean !.. it's totally going to be erazed from my Calender as it had never excisted at all.
Which does bring all to a complex problem of how can loose a day? ... if you are planning to terminally injure your self and spend the day on ICU... still you would see the B'day !...
Sleep is also not an option ! ... so.............how?
Well.. simple !
I have my flight plans confirmed ! .. and this is how I am going to loose my B'day !
I am going to fly to a far Western country (eastern side of the world -GMT !) ... far...far away... and spend some time there for work.... Take a flight to even further !!!
The board a plane at 11.20. pm.. just 40 minutes prior to my B'day.. and fly back to India ( western side of the world +GMT)....
and land on the next day !
I do have a transit... but that transit is hop-to-hop from plane to plane !
So... physically.. I will turn to my correct age...but technically !
I never excisted on that particular day of my life !
Does that means I get to stay another year in my same age ?
