It was interesting to read Pearl’s post - on inanimate objects like a car speaking. This set a train of thoughts in my mind. What if the inanimate objects that we encounter everyday start conversing with us? Here are some of the conversations.
Mobile Phone: Speak softly and listen to deeply / Clean your ears and wash your mouth
Watch/Clock: Precious time is clicking. Don’t waste it / Stop watching
Spectacles: You are blind to a lot of things in life
Television: I am called an idiot box. But why are you watching me ?
Chair: You are warming me too much. Prevent sore back
Table: The clutter on me reflects you
Shoes: Save my sole and yours
Socks: Wash me, or use me to bring the dead alive
Bed: All that you do, I hear and see, and many a time feel
Bottle: Your life starts with a feeding bottle and ends with a saline bottle. In between, I am the coke bottle and the beer bottle
Tread mill: You seem to be throwing a lot of weight
Lap top: Whole day, I see you press the ‘get messages’ button. Can I report to your boss?
Bath tub: It’s only you who are enjoying
Stick: You should have got more of me. That’s why they say’Spare the rod and spoil the child.
My brain refuses to think any more. You may add to the list.
