Ouch, it hurts!!

This is one of the phrases that I have been using a lot lately. Not because I am a moron and people around me doesn't like me. In fact I am someone who does not cause much harm to others unless I feel that they are trying to harm me. Enough of this self boasting, I suppose...

Coming back to the main issue, it was paining in almost all of my Joints and Muscles so much that I started to realise that there are more joints and muscles in my body than what I had thought before! The reason for this was a glorious football match. The story goes like this...

On Friday evening, when I reached home after work, there was no current and it was around 7.00 PM. And it was very dark inside. Out of my laziness to light a candle and sit inside the house, i chose to sit outside and enjoy Radio City FM and some moon light. It was wonderful with some cold wind also blowing across. Then suddenly I came across some announcements about a football match in the Radio...

The match was organised by Radio City FM, Bangalore on the same day as that of World Cup final. It was as part of their Fifth anniversary celebrations. And they were looking for people who were willing to be part of that.I found it an exciting prospect, to meet some RJ's, have some fun playing football and there will be some goodies that will be given away as part of this...

All this prompted me into sending a message telling them that I am ready to be a part of this. But I did not get any call from them during that day. I forgot about it. Next day I went for a movie with a friend of mine and I got a call from Radio City, and I was all pumped up. I couldnt wait till it was sunday morning so that I could go there...

But everything did not go as I had planned. I went there along with two friends of mine and in all the excitement I didnt even had my breakfast. It was supposed to start at 11.00 AM, but finally it got underway after 12.00 PM. And I started to run around with all my energy that is stored as Fat in different parts of my body, mainly abdomen area lately. But soon I realised the amount of stamina I have as I started to pant like a dog...

It was not very embarrasing as most of the people who were there were like me only, some even worse. Suddenly I realised that the girl in the opposing team is causing our defense a lot of problem. I decided to control my offensive instincts and will dedicate myself to the defensive duties...

And I decided to mark her closely. No.... I never had any other intentions other than the fact that I will not have to run too much if I am staying only in the defense. the game went on and then came a high ball from the opposing camp. I saw that the girl in question is going for the ball, and me too went for it. It bounced in front of us and I tried to head it...

Dishum..... A leg with football boots came and hit my face. I was totally frozen for a second. Then I realized that it was her boots and that my lip is bleeding. It hurt!! I would have been fine, had she told me a sorry atleast. But then that didnt happen. And my body was aching like anything, when I was coming back. But my ego was more hurt!!!
