Time and Distance...

... Was never my favourite chapter. R finds it funny that I use all kinds of units to measure distance. Time. Auto meter. Everything except meters and kilometers.

How far is the store?
Two minutes from here.

I have some work in Church Street.
Wow that's 80 bucks from here!


You get my point. But today I found a brand new unit for distance. It used to take me 15 songs to reach work when I worked out of the Bannerghatta Road office. Now the office has moved closer.. It's only 5 songs away from home :D :D

Yayyyy! This was long overdue. Finally!

DI, that was another era.. Then it used to be 1..2..3..4..5..6..7..8 rounds of the society where I lived. All I wanted to do was finish 8 so I can rest in peace :D

Piyu, I thought as much :)

Wow!!! That's such a nice and simple thought yet so poignant ... loved it.... wait i'll count the number of songs to my home on way back from work today ;p!

5 songs commute time, eh?
:)
What about hummed songs commute time?
With own variations, of course.

Sagarika, welcome to the blog.. And I am glad you liked the idea. Please put up a post about the number of songs! :)

Austy, isn't that awesome? :)) Hummed songs give me a migraine.. I am really that bad :D :D
