Death is a scary thought… thought of ‘Dying in a bathroom’ is just plain horrible n lil nasty.
That almost happened today morning. Woke up, killed the alarm, went back to sleep. Woke up after sometime, cursing the person who was calling me up on the phone. Brushed my teeth, switched the TV on, and went to put the heating coil thing into the bucket. I was holding it and plugged it in, without seeing that the goddamn switch was on.
Had a sudden, searing insane pain in my hand,like someone was holidng and crushing it, and the first thought which came into my over-imaginative, ‘scared-of-evil-spirits’ mind was that it was a ghost trying to kill me. In the next fraction of a second, had the horrible realization that I was being electrocuted. Tried to throw away that thing, but was stuck to my hand. Had a major panic attack. And before I knew, somehow, the plug came out of the socket, and it all stopped! It all happened in a few seconds, but felt like a long time while it was happening. The human brain can work so damn fast ?!?!
Only after a few seconds, I actually realized what had happened. Was extremely stupid of me to plug it in , while holding it, and not looking at the stupid switch. My right hand’s aching horribly , prolly to serve as a reminder t o not indulge in any such stupidity.
Also feeling pretty phiolosophical.. life is so fleeting man, can end just like that… on the road, in your bathroom, on the beach.. just in a matter of seconds… live while u can..
I’m quite spooked with how close I came to dying, but still …Very happy to be alive…
I guess there’s someone down here who’s praying for me, and someone up there is listening..
