If you are familiar with an MBA Marketing Proff’s jibber jabber, you would have most certainly heard the 10 P’s of Marketing.
A fleeting thought about them while reading an article gave me an Idea to write my 10 P’s aka 10 P’s of Piinksocks’ Life. 🙂 Interestingly enough my pen name and the name I was born to start with P. Makes my life easier to think of the remaining 8. So here I go.
I am doing this like a tag. The people I tag here shall have to do the similar tag with the first alphabet of their name.
Ten P’s of My Life.
Pinksocks- Such a loyal pen name this one has been. Defines who I am. I hate to see my feet get dirty because of the dust hence the socks and I love nice warm yet bright colors like pink. Voila. 🙂
Priya- She is my baby sister who is all grown up and I have not much to add here now. I miss the charm she had as a kid of the family.
Poonam- The mataji [As my phone calls her] is beacon of hope of my life. She has stood against all odds and that lesson made me a stronger woman.
Pati aka Parthiv- He is my bestest friend. A random nod from him across a room filled with people gives me the blush.
Punctuality- I am punctual, when I am supposed to do things all by myself. However whenever there is a pati-sitting involved, I invariably get late. I have always been a punctual person. I used to be the first one to reach birthday parties [much to the embarrassment of the host who was not even ready to receive me], school events, dance class and even weddings. On my last trip to Coorg I realized that being punctual is actually a punishment. You land up feeling lost and alone.
Proper- I hate to be inappropriate. So much so that I start apologizing the moment I feel I have crossed a line somewhere.
Poignant- Oh I am wuss when it comes to emotional syaapa in my life. I can feel bad for things that touch a sentimental chord. Phew… I am aware of my emotions and am proud of them.
Porous- I think I have that ability to soak it all in. I am not very good at letting out what I feel. I need to poked till the time I can no longer keep it in. I might feel bad about something that happened few months back. I shall park it in some box of the brain and it shall stay there.
Poor Memory- It is very ironic when compared to the statement I made above but I can prove it. I might not remember the event but I remember how I felt when it occurred. This P has made me infamous for not being able to be mad at the pati for more than 30 sec. I just dont remember trivial events.
Possessive- Of all the worldly possessions that I have, I am most attached to my ellu. Well he might be just a soft toy to someone who has never had emotional attachment with one.
So there we have the 10 P’s 🙂
