There are days and there are days.. but after some point the everyday of life starts feeling like your life is part of Groundhog Day. And that’s what my morning routine feels like. I have my shuttle to work at around 8.43 am and the walk to the bus stop is about 7 minutes from my apartment. So I usually time myself to reach the bus stop atleast 3-4 minutes in advance to avoid any panic. And the walk from my apartment to the bus stop gives the “it feels like ground hog day” feeling everyday. As I step out of my elevator and walk out to start my day :- the janitor is sweeping the lobby and the security guard is doing his job. There is a daddy waiting for his little princess’ school bus to arrive while the nanny looks on. The janitor greets me, so does the security guard. I exchange smiles with the nanny and walk out of the building. Jaleel, one the maintainence crew is cleaning the other block of my building complex and we exchange pleasantries in Tamil. Moving right along, I turn right and I see this young man either walking out of his car after finding a parking spot or waiting for his friends to join him after he is done parking his car. I walk past him, turn right twice and I am at my busstop. And when you have this ritual daily, you bump into the same people at the bus stop. It’s the same everyday except unlike in the movie, the costumes of all the characters (except the men in uniform) changes. Hmmm.. makes me wonder if there will be an interesting twist to the routine some day :-)
