“Hey, I saw something, a direction board, maybe a danger warning, probably, of which I am not sure, on a small wooden post, right before the bend that we took just now”, she said in one breath, shouting with frenzy, pointing towards his right – back as they were traveling in a car, on a deserted streak of passage that ran across the forest, around twilight, as they were lost, on the third day of their maiden road trip.

Applying the breaks as a knee jerk reaction made them both lean on the dashboard with a thrust and startled by her shriek, he said, ” God…your scream made my spirit jump out of my body, crazy girl!”

Winking at him, patting his shoulders, she said, “Only for sake of our lives as I saw you dozing off at the wheel, with the fatigue of driving for hours at end, darling”

This method of screaming to alert the snoozing driver is a naughty idea by all means but still a foolproof one. That first para took me on our drive through the Bandipur forest reserve on the way to Ooty fearing the emergence of a tiger any moment in front of our car.

Hey, I have nominated you for a “10 of my favourite things” tag. Do check it out. I would love to read your list too! 🙂

My Dad was known to doze off at the wheel, so my Mom would harass him with inane conversation while he was driving at the end of a tiring day. Was often quite funny as she tried to get us involved in the effort too. Your story brought back memories! 🙂
