Would you ‘Like’ to have…?

…and I thought that living a life that others would ‘like’ you to live meant ‘sacrifice’…


Well! While being with them for all that while, I was not sure if I was with the same people I had such a different impression of. Among each other, they seemed distant, and even a bit awkward. The vibes were strained and the interaction lacked warmth.

And then suddenly I saw them animated, huddling together…the smiles were ‘on’ and the shine was back in the eyes. And I realized that one of them had gone farther from the table and had uttered those golden words…“Say Cheese…!”

I looked around and in a flash I got reminded of where I had seen this familiar sight.


I guess, even living two lives gets bearable as number of ‘likes’ reaches a certain mark.
