There is no One Reason for things to happen

We have been tricked into believing that "Everything happens for a reason". It's not "a" reason but multiple reasons, coming together and making the event possible. To start with, the reason I'm typing this post is not just because I'm sitting at the airport awaiting the boarding call, but also because (a) it has been long since I have blogged (b) I got a decent sleep last night (c) I have the energy to express and type it out from the phone (d) I'm wearing a Beatles tee (e) I just got "upgraded" to emergency exit row from the second last row in an Indigo airline. 

Yes. I know what you're thinking. You think I am writing to show off the point (e) above? Please read the post again, this time including the title.

Waiting For An Indefinite Amount Of Time

“He’s just barging into me!” she complained to the man with her as they made their way to their seat in the aircraft.

As they sat in the emergency exit seat listening to the customary instructions by the air hostess, the person at the window started laughing and soon she and her partner joined as well. The laughter, much to the amusement of the people in the adjacent rows, lasted well after the hostess finished her discourse.

Weird things were happening around her this evening and she had started to believe that she attracts weird events and actions from people. The recent one was a few minutes ago on her way to the airport, the instance where what she thought was a truck coming towards her was actually two motorcycles and hence passed right through her. Thinking that nobody had laughed at the air hostess when she says the windows need to be open at the time of take-off and landing, she concluded this could be the last for the evening, a few minutes later she would dismiss the thought.

The baggage never seem to arrive and she was with only a couple of people who were waiting for the baggage near the empty belt.

When she went to the baggage services, she was told that she had to now wait for an indefinite amount of time as she was in a dream and the person in whose dream she was in, had woken up for the day and there was no certainty if he'll see the same dream again.
