Short Story: Parting ways

Funny thing, I just realized I never wrote a funny short story, which was quite surprising as Story is what I like writing and humor is what I do best (atleast I think so), but for some reason I do not write a short story with a fun thing and I wanted to know why, I realized writing humorous stories is a challenge that even I cannot take. Well, below is not some of my best work, I tried to stay focused but apparently couldn’t. No characters in this story are real, any resemblances to real characters is coincidental, I just put some Blogger friends names so I might get inspired but well… you tell me how it is.
Sreya was driving all the way to her friends house. As always Shruti was in trouble.
‘He has left again, Sreya,’ said Shruti between sob, ‘it was so obvious since beginning, he as just messing around. Its over girl, its over. I have nothing else to do now.’

‘Now hold on your tight, girl,’ said Sreya, ‘I am coming there, don’t worry.’
Sreya drove around the block twice, Shruti and Rahul were rocking for years, their relation as in and out. Rahul was arrogant, he has no right to do this again and again.
Every time he will go and throw her to dogs. Then it would be her job to bring her back, make her strong. They would bitch about him for days and when it was time to take Shruti to the singles bar, he would return, that dog would return in her life. The same thing would repeat all over again. Bastard.
She preferred Neha, in the case , whenever Neha had a breakup she would use her 5 MM Deagle revolver and empty a complete clip on her bedroom all. The firing relieved her mood but not for some girls. What had they fought about again? millions of thoughts came into her mind about the possible reasons why they broke off again. What had Rahul done this time? Why was getting into relationship so bad? She and Bharathi were moving smoothly, like a well oiled machine. Why couldn’t Shruti and Rahul do the same? Shruti was a romantic fool, Rahul knew that, then why did he have to do it? and if he did it once, why did he come back?
Climbing out of the lift, she prepared the final list of bad words to call Rahul in front of Shruti, nothing over the top lest if he comes back, she will feel awkward. She pushed open the door hard as if to knock it down.
‘What has the bast…’ she couldn’t complete the sentence, Rahul was in the kitchen making coffee and smiling.
‘What the…?’ she exclaimed.
‘She is over there with the box of tissues,’ he pointed, ‘go over i’ll get coffee.’
Totally confused about the incident she saw her friend crying on the couch. Now she was super confused.
‘It is over,’ Shruti cried, ‘Its finally over…’
‘Wha…?’ Sreya couldn’t continue.
‘The Kukurmati Ki Karam Bhari Kahani is finally over, Sreya after the horrible 256754667 episode her husband has left her forever,’ Shruti sobbed hard and hugged her, ‘What will i do now in the evenings’.
P.S. This ain’t over.
P.P.S. Don’t kill me.

    Dude, I wonder why you have doubts regarding writing humourous stories. This is certainly excellent. Women and their soaps! Ah!

The moaning of life #2 Childhood Trauma

The entire shark family is out for a hunt, and the little fish are running for their life. We get to cheer as the Baby Shark does Doo Doo Doo Doo Doo with his family, calling on the family - extended family and sometimes robots on the 'hunt' because your offspring decides that that is the one song they want you to play or a tantrum follows. Many of you will say it's not the content but the catchy tune that draws the babies towards the nonsequential song, but it's more than that. It's the sheer repeatedness that draws your angst towards the piece. And YouTube provides the music based on how much time you want your baby to be engaged to it. You have a 60+ minute version and a 120+ minute version. The same shark family going out on the same hunt. And it's not just the Shark family. Weirdly, baby JJ and his family sing random songs, go on a holiday and even increase the family. I am talking about Cocomelon, which has arrived in your child's life as he murmurs t

Short Story: Ginger Chai

This is my first attempt for writing a love story, which I am really bad at. Mani Padma (from Ginger Chai ) challenged me to write a love story a few days ago, it is not a real great read, but a little feeble attempt to take a taste in this genre. Please give your honest opinion… Cheers, Sid. *fingers crossed* Breathe in. Breathe out. Damm, this is so easy when you are not tensed. Why is this clerk talking so much time. ‘Will you hurry up?’ I asked the clerk. My finger nails were tapping the counter in excitement. My name is Shailaja, 30, single and employed, in short a perfect girl for the aunties, mammies to constantly remind me that my days are waning out, that I have to find someone before it is impossible for them to. It is not that I don’t want to get married, but I should get some proper match, isn’t it? All they show me is either short, tall, long nose, meaning some imperfection in some way or the other. I am not at all hopeless romantic and I am definitely not goin

We used to build civilizations. Now we build shopping malls.

The human evolution is a constant race against boredom, men have for generations tried to overcome boredom is many ways possible. In olden days, they got bored, they build civilizations, big massive civilizations. The ancient Egyptians had pyramids, the Babylon build the hanging garden for people to hang out. People from far and wide come to visit the Taj Mahal, praising its divine beauty, not knowing that it was build after the wife died, thus partly in guilt. Rome was not build in a day, indication they were super bored. Then came the great barbarian evolution and they started raiding cities. Don't forget Atila the Hun who constantly attacked cities whenever he got free time. Alexander was super bored and he decided to conquer the entire world, but while these men where attacking cities and building civilizations, the women where thrown into a abyss of impending boredom. What would Mrs. Atila do when her husband was busy attacking Rome? Or What would the wives of the
