Mind It!



Busy working on my Research-Paper,
My breakfast I attended absentmindedly...

A burning smell emanated from my Toaster,
Instead of the Bread, I had put my CD!

What an Idiot! But I sprung to action faster!
To set things right before my act's discovery!

But, my hubby-dear's nose proved smarter!
Though the Perfume-Spray's effect was speedy!



Moral- 
1. We must mind it! Use our mind before doing any work!
2. We cannot and should not hide anything from our loved ones! 


Note- Not a true story
Inspired by a TV advertisement in which the model tries to insert a piece of bread in his Laptop (thinking it is the CD) & then realizes from the smoke from his Toaster that he has accidentally put his CD in the Toaster! 
Shows how our busy lives make us so absent-minded that we end up doing such idiotic things...
Used this idea to present a 55-words Poem!

    1. Thanks Maniparna!
      Sometimes, the cover-up doesn't prove to be effective as our act is discovered :) But, bad state if that CD had important info!
