Commonly Different

Notes that i pick up on the street usually have held my attention. Here is an earlier example! And here are a few more. Some messages stun you by all the power punch that they pack ! Others leave you squirming with all what they lack !

Whether they pack or lack, it gives me a strange pleasure to look at these messages, absorb and perhaps let go of a smirk. Or laughter. In disbelief / anger / joy / muted feeling etc etc.
I keep clicking pictures of them, and here are a few.

Now, these appear different to me ! The other day wife tole me, with a straight face and a serious undertone, the commonest of things appear different to you !’ I gave her a long hard gaze. And just as i was going to say something, she realised that she didn’t have to look further to understand ‘b-o-o-m-e-r-a-n-g’ !

So here are a few apparently common sights, that appear……slightly different to me. I leave it to you, the reader, to plough on. And may be chip in with what you think, i was thinking !!

And if you are wondering…the picture is indeed attached correctly !

Common ? Different ? Commonly different ? Differently common ?

  1. Pliss to understand…maybe this is what the people from Mulberry Hill, Charchagate and Breachcandle think about where Mulund,Bhandup and Thane is…..

    We need to be a patient till the new CM is able to appoint one of his relatives as CMD of this “Board”…….
