A memorable Incident In my Life
(This was the subject of the essay I wrote in the XII standard exam.)
People have many memorable incidents in their lives. (By corollary: many memorable incidents have people in them). Some incidents are happy, some are sad, and some are downright disgusting. But you did not click your mouse button to talk about others. It's A memorable incident in MY life. About ME.
My life is extremely boring and colourless.... Bazinga! Its far from that actually. So, its kind of hard to chose one particular incident to narrate. I have hunted lions in the sahara, fought a wild buffalo, attended 106 rock concerts all over the world, performed with the Beatles, surfed on Mars (Yeah...There's water alright), did "it" with an alien, saved the mankind from a rogue comet, saw a T-Rex and travelled in time.
But one incident stands out.
It has left me scarred for life, with a broken leg, and a phobia of walking over anti-skid tiles.
It was almost midnight. I was playing Dave on my laptop. I almost got to the second level this time; when I heard a sound coming from the bathroom. I got up to investigate and switched on the light. What I saw next made me want to scream as loudly as I could...But I didn't...that would have scared the monster away. There, in the bathtub, was the largest spider I had ever seen. It was a little bigger than a standard SanDisk 2GB memory card. Its black eyes glistened in the white light. The pincers clicked angrily seeing me. And just before it did, I knew it was going to jump, and tear me to pieces. I screamed and turned. That was when I slipped on the anti-skid tiles and broke my leg.
I later sued the Anti-skid tile company for a million dollars. But that's another memorable incident. Ciao.
