I just ate an apple.

Those of you who know me personally — and I wonder if someone who knows me personally comes up here and actually reads this ulta seedha stuff I write (with some very minor exceptions) — will smile at this word. Apple. That’s because I am an apple freak. According to my Abbu ji, apple is the only beneficial foodstuff I eat. Imran says that I can’t compromise on apples (help me with the grammar here), and in Talha’s opinion I have some spiritual attachment with apples. Whatever the reason may be, I know that I like apples. No, I like eating apples. No, no, no, I like apples and I like eating apples. Is there any difference?

Okay. I know I don’t have anything to write, and still I want to write. May be I want to write about those assignments and projects which are ready to haunt me. Or may be I want to write about that sleep which I have had after Asr to Maghrib. Or may be I just want to write that I want to write. May be it’s just that feeling that I am writing and it’s just that sound of the keys being pressed by my finger-tips which I want to feel and which I want to hear. May be it’s my unwillingness to open my books and study them. May be it’s my willigness to open my books and study them. May be it’s the silence which is present in this room and which is being broken by the noise pulses created by the keyboard’s keys. May be it’s the chill which I can feel due to a faulty gas heater. May be it’s the air I’m breathing in. May be it’s the apple I have just eaten. May be it’s my image in the mirror I can glance at. May be it’s the kid I was winking at about an hour ago, and who was winking back at me. May be it’s the phone bell which just put its share in breaking the silence of this room. May be it’s the TV switched on by my sister in the adjacent room. May be it’s the time which is ticking away. May be it’s the thought of those lectures I’ll have to attend tomorrow.

Or may be it’s only the fact that I have gone completely nuts right now.

an apple a day keeps the doctor away. methinks your doctor must be quite looks imapired that you are obsessed with eating applaes to keep him/her away…

Ayesha: May be it’s everything!

eX: I’ll recover form this ‘may-be-fever’ soon. May be.

Mani: I didn’t!

Laura: Influence? If I had any influence on Saddam, he would have been much better (except for talking ulta seedha stuff, of course).

Zenia: Oh no, you don’t say a word against apples in front of me. And don’t worry if you didn’t get my comment … talking sense isn’t just my thing.

AWK: What about thinking of my pocket? It costs it the same for apples and doctors both.


Dec 18, 2003 at 1:11 pm

Yup. Definately insane.


Dec 19, 2003 at 11:00 pm

Sadiya: I didn’t know it’s one word. May be it is. Oops … maybe.

Anne: Either you should love apples now too, or you should go back to your childhood!


Dec 21, 2003 at 2:36 pm

It’s all about sour green apples! =)
Maybe you should get to work, eh? haha Good luck, yo. I loved this post. You’re so aware of the moment, masha’Allah.

if some apple eaters are nuts and all apple eaters are nuts about apples and not all are apple eaters, how many nuts would be reading this nutty post?


Dec 21, 2003 at 9:52 pm

only one, and thats you :P


Dec 22, 2003 at 12:15 am

I had an apple last night. It was an interesting experience. A friend had some apple flavored sheesha the night before lol. Double apple.


Dec 22, 2003 at 6:40 pm

Yasmine: Haha, thanks :)

AWK: Hmm … one of ‘em is me. Dead sure.

Jogia: If it’s only one, then that’s me and me alone. Nobody else!

Mademoiselle: Try to repeat that interesting experience every night. Or every morning, as my Abbu ji says.


Dec 23, 2005 at 9:56 pm

ahem…. where did my comment go?
Ok never mind… i was talking about Apple soda and Milk shakes…. and yes, apples are good for your appetite if eaten before a meal.


Dec 23, 2003 at 10:47 pm

enetation sudhar gaya!


Dec 23, 2003 at 11:38 pm

Ayesha: Apple soda and milk shakes. Hmm. Will try to check it out after my throat gets itself right *cough*

AWK: Kuch pata nahin, enetation ka sudharna kisi buhat barray breakdown ka paish-khaima bhi ho sakta hai


Dec 24, 2003 at 2:58 pm

I like apples, but drinking apple juice always gives me the feeling of drinking alcohol. Not as if I know what alcohol tastes like, but sometimes I’m eating a particularly juice, crisp, and strong flavored apple – and I call it my “alcoholic apple”. :)


Dec 25, 2003 at 11:18 am

Sadiya, acc. to a new finding by the B Filer, I change my earlier stance, eating apples does not make one nutty, it makes one drunk. there!


Dec 25, 2003 at 5:25 pm

no no AWK, drinking apples makes you DRUNK. (apple juice, apple soda or milkshake)


Dec 25, 2003 at 7:07 pm

okeee…DRINKING apples makes one drunk. so i go to get drunk


Dec 26, 2003 at 2:06 am

Or maybe, the faulty heater is leaking gas and your getting BRAIN DAMAGE! (he he) j/k, I like keenoos btw :)
