a piece of my mind crazy things

These things almost never come true

This week was a pretty interesting week. I have been getting all kinds of stuffs. I maybe exaggerating it when I say, “all kind”, but when you get what I just got, your faith in luck would spike off the charts. Anyway, this week I got freebies from my gym, as a token of appreciation for my annual membership too. But, this post is not about that. I do not want to break the suspense yet. So, allow me to take you through the scenes as they happened for me. 

Last week, my dad went to Bangalore (an official visit). On his return journey, he had to wait in the lounge for some time. And he did, but, he was hungry. So, he bought a cup noodle and enjoyed it while he was waiting. He finished it in a jiffy and was still bored. That was when he noticed a slip on the lid, asking him to send a message to participate in a lucky draw competition. And he did so (you think it was a waste of ₹5?, now I think not). And he got a call back immediately from the service providers. They asked him some GK questions and turns out that he graduated with flying colours. 

Then they had asked for our home address, claiming that they would be sending us a phone through mail (something fishy……). But, curiosity beats the sense of security. And he could not resist, so he gave it and told us over phone. We, decided unanimously that, if the courier guy asks for the delivery charge, we would simply reject the package. 

Day before yesterday, when I reached home, after work, there was a package waiting for me. We called my dad and told him that we had received the package. My father said, “open it up, check if we got a phone worth ₹500 or ₹1000. Where I was thinking, if there would be any phone in there at all, unlike last time (Previous experience, long story, will tell in next post). 
Anyway, we opened the package and “HOLY FUCK! There was an iPhone 5S”. With the bill and all, completely legitimate. Who knew, so, now I am the owner of a free iPhone. Cool right? My mom said my dad was lucky, but I claimed, I am lucky cause in the end, I have the iPhone. Ha ha. And this is what the title is all about, these things almost never come true, like the birthday wishes we make.
