'No Interruptions Week' is the only way to save your bank balance and liver
It’s worth a shot. Not that one
Last week, I shopped online for a bunch of Secret Santa presents while pretending to work. You did the same, don’t lie to yourself. My midweek drinking game was stronger than Virat Kohli’s beard game and his actual game, and that’s saying something.
There was a steady inflow of gifts (read materialistic happiness) and everything was merry, jolly and fa la la la la, la la la la.
Then a lot of us woke up to the deadliest hangovers and having to be at work. We discovered that it’s possible for a bank balance to feature single digits. Our livers are 90 percent alcohol. Most importantly, our brains need a reboot.
Listen closely, your brain is screaming, “Humse na ho paayega aur tumse bhi na ho paayega”.
So what do we do now that the year and the decade are both coming to a close, along with our brains and bank balance? December 27 celebrated as No Interruptions Day — a day to tie up loose ends at work, clear up the filthy drawer that is filled with fungus-covered menus and safety pins – gave us an idea.
Consider this our petition to turn the period between December 26 and 31 into a No Interruptions Week. The kind that demands a DND placard plastered on our foreheads.
Because the layers of concealer aren’t enough to hide those eye bags anymore. You have no excuse left to leave work early either while those balance sheets need balancing, deadlines need meeting and taking a nap under your desk is not an option.
After taking all things into consideration, we would like to issue this notice in public interest. We need to hibernate this final weekend of the year. Get into your sleeping pod, rekindle your love for binge-watching weekends and take a break from pitchers and spirits.
And most importantly, don’t feel guilty about cancelling plans or ditching your friends. Your friends will not ‘uninvite’ you from the New Year’s bash.
It’s the last time you can spend some quality #metime this decade. So, hit the pause button on rage, and rejuvenate.
