I'm haunted!!!

This was the prompt at writer's island...I've had a lot of ghostly incidents but for some reason came up with this one...
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Who's the ghost tonight?



If you're fat, you are haunted by calories you get when you eat junk food.

If you are as thin as a stick model, you are haunted by the invisible calories you get when you don't eat and the threatened visit of the binge fairy...

If you are pregnant, you are haunted by the weight you need to put on, which is needed and if you are a new mother, by the weight you've just put on, which is now called flab...

If you are employed, you are haunted by the word pink, because it means the pink slip while if you are a new graduate, by the temptation of the green ....(show me the money!!!)

If you are in 'can can' Singapore, you are haunted by its image of a 'FINE' city... (have to check lah, if there is a fine for saying this!!)

If you are a blog writer, you are haunted by the 'writer's block', and by the ghost visitor...BOO!!!.

If you are a child, you are haunted by expectations and the grade monster...

And I'm haunted by those demons which visit me every now and then to turn me into someone 'normal'......

Everybody has ghosts, which haunt them. So what haunts you?

Nice write up..Haunts are very personalised I think.Can A shrink generalise it.I wonder.


Fear of the unknown is not in me..but fear of people whom I think I know well back stabbing haunts me.

Thinking aloud said...

@CU
Why wait for a ghost to haunt you when there are so many in real life...?

Trying to clean up ghosts haunt me often. On a different note, have you seen movie "Kaun?" (Urmila and Manoj Bajpai) That haunted me for a while when I saw it few years back!

Thinking aloud said...

@ joy
I don't dare see ghost movies...my own pony tail scares me soemtimes :)

happy cleaning up...
