What does come to your mind when I say the word, WEEKEND?
Some chilled beer, Netflix, friends, parties, and a complete wipeout of whole week’s exhaustion and tiredness, right?
Everyone loves weekend and weekend loves everyone BUT….
Just imagine if the DRY DAY falls on the weekend… *intense drumrolls*
And, you don’t have any stock left … *heavy intense drumrolls*
Here arrives the 5 stage lifecycle of a DRY DAY, to kursi ki peti baandh lo kyuki mausam bigadne wala hai, *sigh*
STAGE 1: KYA SE KYA HOGAYA!
You open your eyes with the zest of weekend’ism in your heart and reach the nearby liquor shop to get your cravings sorted and *boom* the shutter is closed and the annoying text – “DRY DAY” flashes on the shutter.
Your weekend plans – Shattered
Your happiness – Shattered
Your heart – Error 404, organ missing!
STAGE 2: EHSAAN TERA HOGA MUJH PAR!
After realizing that you are losing the chance of relishing your weekend, you instantly gather all your courage and start making strategies to get your rum that will erase your gamm.
You dial up a long lost friend (who, you know is a big time alcoholic) and ask him the favour of giving you some booze.
Hoooorrraaayyy! He agrees to give you booze and asks you to pick the booze from his house.
You are all happy until he tells you his address, “Bro, main Escort Mujesar rehta hai, aaja”, *insert Ekta Kapoor wala shock*, this is an absolute shock for you reside in DWARKA, faaaaaaaak!
STAGE 3: JAAAANEEE JAAAANNN….DHUNDTA FIR RAHA!
As you are all upset and unsettled because of the thought that your weekend is going to get ruined, your mind finally paves way for you as you are recalled about the local goon who smuggles alcohol and sells it on a higher price, fondly known as “SAHSI”.
As you reach at his place and ask for your brand, he goes inside his room, only to come back with your soul in his hand, that glittering bottle of booze (read: Amrit Rass) and you are all elated and just then the smuggler quotes the price that is 3 times higher than the MRP.
You are now confused about what to do as there is a god damn month left to survive and if you spend all the bucks here, you will have to struggle hard but on the other hand it is your favourite booze that can help you blossom your weekend.
The situation is tensed, Weekend? Month? Weekend? Month?
And eventually weekend wins (no brownie points in guessing that).
STAGE 4: TUM MILE TO MIL GAYA YE JAHAN, TUM MILE TO SAB KUCH HAI NAYA!
You sit on your couch holding that red bottle, pour some in the glass, add some ice cubes, take a sip and whisper “Happy Weekend, you did it!”
