Life journey :

Ok,so it goes like this.One of our family friend whom i had met a couple of times ,with whom i had gone for a family trip for 3 days as well..suddenly forgets my name😠imagine this, i am completely blank now…all kind of thoughts in my mind what happened to her? Is she ignoring me or has she really forgotten my name….How is this possible???? A person with whom i had travelled doesn’t remember my name…she’s calling me Seema😁…

Story goes like this,she had a kitty party and called all friends over,one of them was me (with a new name Seema😆) so now i reached there all happy iam meeting my friend, she’s genuinely a lovely lady.Served us a lovely platter of snacks, wholesome one..enjoyed talking to all ,some came with their toddlers seeing them do masti was mood freshing. Now suddenly i hear Seema Seema!!i did not bother to look as i am not Seema…then bhabhi (i call her)came to me and gave the plate and said you did not hear (hahaha)i was thinking i heard but did not know that i was the one…ok now finished with all the party stuff returned home with a heavy heart…just thought i could have corrected her on the spot Why didn’t i?only because she was way elder to me or i was like whats in a name no there is a lot in a name…i was waiting for my next visit to her place to see if she still calls me the same…but lucky this time i was referred to as Sadhana😍all happy, later to realise that it was just a slip of the tongue. No issue, she’s still my favourite one and respected as well.who has always stood with me in our thick and thin.Now i know she’s bad with names, which she has done with many others also..this was just my experience, which i loved to share here.Thank you for reading i am not a writer just my stories here
