“Mommy, Look at this picture I shot just now”, said seven-year old Ethan beaming proudly showing a photo in his Dad’s cell phone to his Mom.

“Wow!Ethan.You are so talented “,replied Jane encouragingly while looking at the photo keenly .

Immediately Jane stormed out of the kitchen to confront her husband about several things: Why he let young Ethan use his cellphone, why he is secretly smoking instead of helping her to prepare for Ethan’s birthday party in the evening,  and most importantly, why he started smoking again after he sounded so sincere when he promised her that he will never smoke again just a week ago.

“Is my milkshake ready?” ,yelled my husband from the living room.

Oops! While I was engrossed taking pictures of the pumpkin in every possible angle, I totally forgot about preparing the healthy oats-pumpkin milkshake that I had coaxed my husband into drinking instead of his morning coffee, half an hour ago!

“The empty swing, the shadow of someone approaching the swing and a white ghost like figure at the far end of the chairs,  – Definitely, it’s a spooky swing!”, gasped his friend  seeing the photo.

The photographer amused with this inference immediately uploaded the photo on Facebook with the title ‘Spooky Swing’ , added the explanation provided by his friend , and that post, which was meant to be a prank , went viral  as a ‘Paranormal sighting’ within few minutes !

“Oh! This is how spooky stories start!”, thought the photographer, who alone knew the truth that the girl who was supposed to sit on the swing left to play with her friends exactly at the moment he clicked the camera.!

Mom’s time off #3LineTales

“I too need some rest every day”, thought a Mom , who got exhausted managing her restaurant, and catering to every need of her family.

So, at home too, she hung up a ‘SERVICE’ board at the entrance of her bedroom, instructed her family members that she will be at their service only during specific timings in the day and walked into her room for some peaceful “me” time.

After an hour of undisturbed siesta when she happily entered the living room,she was shocked to see the cluttered house which would take her next 3 hours to clean!

“I hope no one sees me” , he worries as he emerges from the taxi.

Half an hour later, a dapper executive at a corporate office is fishing his pockets for his drawer keys when he accidentally pulls out a receipt of the ride in the morning.

He smiles satisfactorily knowing that even if he were to lose his job to the alleged downsizing, he could still rely on the income from his part time job as a taxi driver.
