Not On Assignment

A journo's jottings under no deadline pressure (since Jan 1, 2010)

Icecream-loving neighbour

with one comment

Once every week, a neighbour of ours follows a unique routine. She catches the 5 pm bus from our complex and gets off at the last stop, about half an hour away. She then walks to her regular ice cream seller, relishes her favourite flavour and takes the next bus home.
A grown-up woman indulging the little girl within her? Perhaps. But she has more to say on the subject:
“Nobody in my family likes ice-cream so I come alone. And why not? All our lives we housewives look after each and every need of our family members. Sometimes, we should take time off for ourselves, isn’t it? Now and then, we should indulge in things that we like.”
