Well, I am unemployed, and live in rented flats, have been living since 2005, after walking away from my ancestral family + property in 2005, when I share the events of my life with friends I realize one thing again and again, how limited our vocabulary is in some fields!
When a married woman stays at home, does chore she is called a housewife, so what will people call me? housesister? Housesibling? Now, unemployed is a very negative phrase, is not it? After all, I may not get a paycheck but I am indirectly very much involved in economical processes- I cook, I do chores, I do laundry… ;p so I am involved in economy, so why don’t we fall into some positive category? That is why I call myself home minister, when someone asks me what I do!
Second is those of us, who live in rented apartments … when we shift what will we tell others? Well we shifted… we landed in our new home… etc etc… people instantly think the best, assume the very best, that we have bought a new flat! ha ha!
First congratulations came from Vishal when he read my post about my “new flat”, he assumed I have bought it! I had to tell him that it was rented. I had to tell him that chances of my buying a flat in Kolkata is somewhere near 1% and in this locality? ha ha! Unless of course Steven Spielberg likes one of my stories or one of my books become a bestseller in amazon ;p
Who can say??
Funny is not it how limited our vocabulary are in these two cases, you have one to share?
