The Wishing Pond has a Traffic Jam
I had a wish to spend at least one night and one day at a hotel. And what I would do there is just sleep, sleep n sleep for hours and hours. Will get up for the washroom rounds and for the food only. May check my phone and TV in between.
But the major thing I would do is only sleeping.
Had an urge to have this wish fulfilled since I got married and started compromising on my sleep to be proved as a Good Bahu, Good Wife and with these new roles, I had to manage my over demanding job too.
I missed my family for sure in those newly wedded days, But I missed my best friend “Sleep” the most.
I would get jealous of my hubby who worked Mon-Fri and got a good sleep on Saturdays and Sundays.
But, I worked from Mon-Sat and worked more n more on Sundays.
Dear Sleep, I was missing you so much. So my heartfelt wish was to get just a lot of undisturbed sleep in a HOTEL Room where I will get everything on the call of a bell.
And The Wish Got Fulfilled with an Unforgivable Error by the Wishing Pond
Well, this wish got fulfilled last week. not just a one night and one-day package; it’s been 3 nights that I am just resting along with my daughter. Can get anything by ringing the bell. And I have the TV and my cell phone to check in between. I have evrything that I needed in the sleep package that I always expected. And no sightseeing for sure.
But I am Sure The wishing pond has a serious Traffic jam; that’s why it took 6 and a half years to fulfill my wish and that too with a huge unforgivable error.
The wishing pond heard me wrong. I had said HOTEL PACKAGE, it gave me a HOSPITAL PACKAGE instead.
As I mentioned earlier, my daughter was getting high fever from every midnight to the dawn. And as it crossed the mark of a week, doctor advised to get her hospitalized.
Her platelets and WBC were lowering. And the high fever was not subsiding. So We Are Here since Friday night. She is on IVs so mostly sleeping. And I am sleeping besides her.
My wished package was a bit similar. But I am hating it now. My daughter wants to go home only. Not willing to be here. All the trauma of IVs, and the frequent poking of needles. My crying baby and begging me to take her away from all these things.
Everything is making me cry. Though I am getting readymade food from home. I don’t just have to get up from my place and can get everything on ringing a bell, But I am hating it.
Why this wrong number, yaar?? If there was a jam of wishes at the wishing pond, it should have taken another year to fulfill my wish. But why this wrong number, you pathetic wishing pond????
I asked for a sleep and forgot to mention peaceful sleep may be ????
Just waiting for doctor’s green signal to move out of this luxury package of child’s illness. And now I really don’t WISH anything else.
Update – My Daughter Felt better and got discharged after 4 days of hospitalization, By God’s Grace. Thank God This wish didn’t get queued.
