As he stood staring at the landscape from the cafeteria window with his chai in hand his thoughts drifted from Macbook to Money to Work to Bitchy neighbor to Girlfriend to Life… Finally settling down on life he realized what he had read somewhere sometime back was true. “Every action has an equal and opposite reaction”.
The inquisitiveness in him surged as he figured out that him being in this proverbial shit-hole was a direct result of some action. As his thoughts raced he got to the root of the problem. He was destined to use that stinky loo as soon as he surreptitiously snuck out of his Maths class in 6th Grade. Sometimes the past doth haunt!
