It’s a Saturday afternoon… I’m on my bike going somewhere on the Outer Ring Road... I’m doing somewhere between 75-85..( can’t be precise as the speedo stopped working sometime back)..
There’s Timberland and Timberlake blaring Carry Out in the earphones… I can feel the warm sun on the back of my neck…it’s a beautiful day..
I see an SUV trying to take over from the left..i loosen the throttle a bit.. the SUV pedals to catch up.. I lazily let go of the throttle fully and can see the SUV diminish into the distance..
as I cross it, I give a lazy, dismissive nod to the driver and move on.. the music still pumping in my ears.
I might be nothing. I might have been a loser all my life. But, in that one moment, for those few seconds…
I am The King of Cool.
