So, I am going on a trip! All by myself! Purely for pleasure! For the first time in my entire life! And today and Monday, I will be traveling literally all day. Like, for 14 hours straight. Which is a good thing, I get to sit on the plane/bus/train and just read for pleasure with no guilt over not doing something else productive, like writing blog posts.
Okay, time to psych myself up! Travel is fun! I won’t get physically sick like I do every single time I get more than 10 miles from my birthplace! I won’t get homesick for my own apartment like I do any time I am away from it after dark (literally, I am sitting in the movie theater watching Shahrukh thinking “oh, my couch! My microwave! My TV! I miss it so much”). I WILL be able to sleep through the night in a bed that is not my own! It’s all good!
And to help with my psyching up, traveling songs!
Okay, no matter how exhausting this trip is, it can’t be as bad as having Salman spin me around and around in a jeep.
Also, I probably won’t end up having to share a car with a strange traveling mystic man. Although I am going to California, so who knows?
And, on the plus side, there is always a small chance that cute young Rajesh Khanna will see me on one of my vehicles from a distance and fall in love with me.
Or slightly less cute and young Rishi Kapoor:
Or possibly Shahid Kapoor will serenade me on the plane. Sure, he’s really just hullicinating I am someone else, but I’ll still take it!
And finally, there is always the slight chance that I will get to join SRK in a massive train top choreographed dance routine.
