Lizard incident

This happened a few years back when I was in Delhi.
I was busy frying some papads when I chanced to see a very repulsive huge lizard on the net covering the kitchen window. I panicked, and to make it scuttle away began splashing water on it.
It ran helter skelter all over the net. This went on for sometime. Then without any warning, the lizard pounced on me. Luckily, it fell on the kitchen floor, neither on me nor into the boiling oil. Surely, I would not have been in a position to see a fried lizard, I would have fainted then and there.I never irritate any lizards after that gruelling experience.

Eye to eye-body parts

A story I composed using body parts idioms

There was a colony of birds.
A crow and a peacock could not see (eye to eye).

One day, the crow found some peacock feathers and disguised as a peacock, strutting all over the place.
The crow kept (dragging its feet), waiting for the right moment for the other birds to praise it.

The crows perched on branches had (a gut feeling) that it was one of their species disguised as a peacock when they saw some exposed part on the body looking black. .

Meanwhile, the crow (kept its ear to the ground) waiting for some praise from the other birds on how beautiful it looked. 

The fraudster got (a kick in the teeth) when the original peacock with the other crows came towards it and wrenched off the peacock features, exposing its original color.

The crow (had egg on its face), unable either to face the peacock or the other crows.
It flew away in shame and remorse.

Reflections on A-Z

  1. Not a regular blogger, but A-Z posts were interesting and made me to go down memory lane.

I was able to refresh English proverbs linking them with true incidents.
The posts took me to Africa, Nepal, Kolkatta etc. where I had memorable experiences.
I thank the bloggers for their wonderful feedback. I enjoyed reading other posts.
Really a wonderful month. reflection
