I got this magazine from my teacher who got it from his teacher who publishes this particular magazine every few months once. Towards the end, I found this article and was amused and impressed. Yes, irrelevant and unnecessary details. So I read this story and I was reminded of my mum who is almost always transfixed to the TV. Damn those drama series! Anyways, this is a good one:


A teacher from Primary school asks her students to write an essay about what they would like their creator to do for them…


At the end of the day while marking the essays, she read one that made her very emotional. Her husband, that had just walked in saw her crying and asked her: - What happened? She answered – Read this. It’s one of my students’ essays. It went;

‘Oh creator, tonight I ask you something very special: Make me into a television. I want to take its place. Live like the TV in my house. Have my own special place and have my family around me – To be taken seriously when I talk. I want to be the center of attention and be heard without interruptions or questions. I want to receive the same special care that the TV receives when it is not working. Have the company of my dad when he arrives from work, even when he is tired. And I want my mom to want me when she is sad and upset, instead of ignoring me. And I want my brothers to fight to be with me. I want to feel that the family just leaves everything aside every now and then, just to spend some time with me. And last but not least make it that I can make them all happy and entertain them. Lord I don’t ask you for much. I just want to live like every TV.


At that moment the husband said: ‘poor kid. What horrible parents!’ She looked up at him and said: ‘That essay is our son’s!!!’

about the writer


Often seen as cold, bitter and distant but in reality is cool, sweet and not very distant..haha Sometimes I feel like saying what Kierkegaard said, People understand me so poorly that they even dont understand my complain about them not understanding me. On the other hand often I assume of understanding people i guess its a given or an irony or something else..depends on how you see it..
