Story of a lost journalist

3 or 4 Funny Scenarios that could happen to anyone

Enter Ms CC to the outside world. Reporter reports three scenarios when CC had to turn her cheeks scarlet (and considering her fat face, that was a lot of work for the cheek bones).

Scenario 1

CC is in a public place. CC is good in 2 things – 1. Getting conscious, and 2. Getting lost (physically and mentally). She has a gift there. No doubt about it. But thing 2 could actually reverse the process in thing 1. Nope she didn’t faint. She just forgot she is in a public place and that there are people around her – in the shop, in the streets, everywhere.

So she starts humming some song whose lyrics she had to invent, and though she feels something amiss, proceeds to do so with growing loudness and passion. Her face muscles twitch with the strain and her hands move with the notes. Of course she had her eyes closed so she is oblivious to the public reactions. In about 120 seconds, she was able to translate that feeling of something amiss into meaningful words – “You can be heard! You have got company!”

She dreads opening her eyes but she couldn’t take her next step without doing that. There was only one way out. Pretend she meant to do what she just did; that singing was like walking to her, nothing unusual. So she puts an air of normalcy and walks amidst eyes that stared and mouths that guffawed until she reached her next stop away from all dreaded witnesses!

Scenario 2

One would assume that was good enough to cover your share of embarrassing moments destined for a lifetime. But no, Lady Luck had totally crossed CC off her list today and what is worse, Lady Comedian had adopted her!

Well the second scarlet situation was less intense. CC was waiting outside a shop for her Mom and had to go inside to tell her something. She runs up and down the huge store not finding her desired subject. It never occurred to CC that subject might have finished her object there.

So while the sales people frown at her choice of ground for evening races, she runs to some of them and asks them if they saw her Mom. Oh yes, Miss Runner-Girl’s Mom, everyone should know who that was and where she was! She now realizes how pathetically 3-year-oldish that sounded!

Scenario 3

CC visits a sick friend with her family. CC’s good points as mentioned above included taking leave from her surroundings to worlds unknown. This she was doing then, with all talent and expertise. She must be proud of her capabilities. So Lady C turns up at the right moment again, and one of the hosts shoots her a question. She of course misses the question and when the questioner looks at her, thinks its time for the occasional friendly gesture people give their hosts. So she turns to her sick friend and asks her brightly
“So how is your nose?”

No one, it might be mentioned here had anything wrong with their nose in that house; well possibly not. The sick friend was sick because of something in her eyes. So while CC proceeds to beam having asked her intelligent question, her family desperately tries to cover the dumb-daughter situation they are so accustomed to. The nose was forgotten and it was a happy world again.

Scenario 4

Just an add on. While CC is at it, why not spill one more story. What if Lady C is not always so generous? So CC takes a library trip, falls neatly on the way, picks herself up with no trouble (when there are no witnesses there never is any trouble). CC and the library man after a lot of hunting finds the book she wants and in the register to sign for the books, CC writes 3 and proceeds to leave.

The library man with years of signature-seeing experience, judged that 3 had little chances of being a signature in any country. Of course CC was only being good – she just wrote the number of books she took cause she must have thought the library people didn’t know to count!

Strong Disclaimer: there might be a few things similar to the character CC mentioned here and the author of this chronicle. But it is strongly recommended not to confuse the 2.



  1. confuse the 2? nah, never:)

  3. I guess it could happen to anybody :-). Couldn’t help laughing imagining the situations you were in. No no, I mean the situations CC was in. Of course I know that CC is not you and you are not CC :))

  4. @nithin, do I detect a touch of sarcasm there? 😀
    @sajith, err it is just possible that there might be a small, minute, little inspiration from real life 😀
    @Minking Than, yes yes CC. Its all undeniably CC. Curiously I just share her intials. 😀

  5. Oh!!! You mean you share the same initials as Clumsy Crissie. My my, what a coincidence. I wouldn’t ever have guessed that :))

  8. Childish Innocence and absent mindedness are visible in the above said Scenarios, I enjoyed reading those when substituted CC by me in those situations. The 4th one is bit of concern where dear CC falls, and it seems the neat falls are a regular incident in CC’s Life. Take Good Care CC while walking, There is no harm in being in two worlds until it starts harming you.

    Enjoyed reading it, 🙂

    it is unfortunate that I dont even have a clue about Who CC is . 😛
