Have you ever wanted to be stylish? You probably are. But it’s not the clothes and blah I’m talking about. I meant style in the everyday things we do.
One of the qualities you could by far attribute to me even without being judgmental is clumsiness. I may act the part of an elegant young woman if required but that is not without pain and effort. Otherwise, the real me is hideously gawky and graceless. I drop, spill, break and trip over things. I crash into people so often, it’s not even funny. Usually it causes acute embarrassment (It might help if I bumped into good humored people instead of the stern, important ones) You can tell I have been somewhere by simply gauging the level of chaos there.
I openly envy those that possess this evil, desirable trait- chic. You don’t just have to look it, you have to live it. HOW does anyone manage that? I’m referring here to those unreal folks who do things perfectly- Light a match on the first strike. Pour water into glasses with not a drop out of place. Put stuff right back where it belongs after they’re done. The people that don’t run into anyone and even if they do, they remain unflustered and gorgeous. Such persons hold complete control of their activities- mind and body forever in co-ordination. They also do not say anything foolish, have impeccable manners and never get flak from anyone. Respect! This stylish community is not to be labeled as mere lookers; for their ready wit, intelligence and comic timing cannot be ignored. Incredible…
Alright, I’m wondering now, if such a clan was to exist and I knew one of them wouldn’t it still be like not knowing them? Most of the time I would not accept his/her being as true. Plus all things perfect are boring after a while. Where’s the unpredictability? The impulsiveness? The madness? This has been one useless blog post. Sorry for wasting your time. Oh, here’s my conclusion anyway. Method in every damn thing is wasted. Clumsiness rules because it is funny, makes people smile and it can also cause serious injury. Therefore, just be perfect in what you honestly like doing. Rubbish the rest.
