Integrity? Hmm.

Let's say you go to 7-11, purchase some snickers worth of $7.99 and give a $10 bill. The store assistant gives you $1.01 back. I can bet a quarter that you are prompt in making him realize he owes you a dollar more. But what if he gives you $3.01 back? Do you keep it or do you give the extra dollar back? Does your hand falter even for a moment before giving it back? Or does it falter while slipping that extra dollar in your wallet?

Integrity, as my friend used to say, is something like wearing a helmet while you are riding a bike. If you are just on the way to the neighborhood bakery for a quick snack which is at most quarter of a mile away, you usually dismiss wearing helmet, as, "What the heck", you think, "you will not be gone that far."

But, how far it does have to be before you wear your helmet?

Love at First Sight

Buying clothes, is like love at first sight. You go to the shop. Look at all available options. You keep on rejecting the lot because a color does not match your taste, a size does not fit you, or you already have this pattern in the same color and you name the reason. You are a tad disappointed when your friends keep on getting the stuff they like and when even it fits them.

But then there it is, lying on the last aisle, the lone shirt/trouser catches your glimpse. First you dismiss it thinking it is too good to be true (to avoid further heartbreak). But then you gather courage and try it on. And when it fits you just perfect, you cannot help but grin. Your acquaintances confirm the blush on your cheeks too.

It is then you know you are in love. Again.
