untie and die...

You'd think wires and cables have lives of their own. And believe it or not, each time I have to unwind cable of any kind, my mind goes into this weird paranoic loop where I fear that I'll never be able to undo the damn thing and somehow it will end up wrapping itself around me in the process and crush my bones to powder. Ok, that was a little too much..but nonetheless that fear is always lurking at the back of my mind. Especially when I sit in the bus and take out my FM player's headphones. Somehow a knot seems to be sitting there, waiting for me to undo it, like a kid waiting on it's mom to do her shoelaces. And this, despite the fact that I'd have wound the headphone wire carefully and these days, I even retain that plastic bit that holds the whole thing together neatly. Somehow when I untie the reptilian being, there's that knot, smiling at me.

And let's not even start discussing cables behind my computer and music system/tv/dvd player.

And wottabout the charger for your fone? Your fone's charging and it rings and you pick it up and the whole contraption, charger, fone and all, falls crashbang to the ground and you have that sinking feeling that something in there broke?

Happens to me every day.

I hate wires. :| If I could, I would choke the neck of one wire with another.

phatichar: same story at home. wires for the PC, TV, Amplifier, Decoder, Music system, Home theatre, VCR, VCD/DVD/MP3 player all jumbled up. am even scred to look at the wires. luckily i have the services of an electrician who works almost free of charge ( read that as Hubby).
