Short Humor Story
by Tanmaya Murthy, LOL Editor
Tring-Tring…the alarm rang. I got up with a sudden jerk and looked at my wristwatch; 7:00 am it said. I was contented. I got up at the right time and now it was time for breakfast. I quickly washed up and got ready for my breakfast. With a slow but steady pace I started getting down the stairs towards the dining hall. I took two slices of bread from the fridge and placed it in the toaster. After having toast with butter, I drank a glass of orange juice to rejuvenate myself.

At 7:30 I came out of my house for my usual morning walk. But it didn’t seem like the refreshing morning hour. The fresh morning breeze was missing and the weather was scorching hot. I didn’t feel like going for a walk in this weather.

Maybe the season is changing…how can the weather be like this right now? I spoke to myself. I took the watering can from the storeroom and filled it with water. Then I started heading towards my garden for watering the chrysanthemums and the primroses which were my garden’s delight! While I was watering the plants, I saw my neighbor coming out of her house. She waved towards me and said that she was going for her aerobics class. I started wondering as her aerobics class was at ten o clock and it was just 45 minutes past 7. I was about to ask her about this but she had left in a hurry. Fifteen minutes passed by and it was time for the postman to come to my place. I had to receive certain important letters so I waited for him. But to my surprise, he didn’t turn up! I started worrying. So I made a phone call to the post office and the postmaster told me that my letters were in my emergency mailbox. I wondered why he didn’t give them to me personally as the mailbox was only to be used when I wasn’t at my place. But by the time I starting to ask my question, the phone line was dead.

Everything around me was going pretty weird! Nevertheless, I didn’t care and I sat on my beanbag in the drawing room reading a book. Suddenly, I heard a crash! I realized that it was my window which broke because of the naughty baseball playing kids in my area. I got angry as it wasn’t the normal time when these kids had to play. I started heading towards them and said, “What are you doing playing baseball at this hour! How many times have I told you kids not to come too early? See now what you have all done! Shameless kids!”

The kids started laughing and they spoke “Madame, we don’t think you know how to read the time! We are here at the right time!”. Saying this, the kids ran away laughing. I was shocked by the kid’s words. I turned around and looked at my grandfather clock and it said eleven o’clock. I then realized that I had set my alarm at the wrong time by mistake and unfortunately my wristwatch stopped exactly at 7:00 and stopped working. So I got fooled partly because of my wristwatch and partly because of error setting my alarm. I hadn’t even bothered to look at the other clocks as I was confident about the time.

For a few seconds I was left with my mouth open but then I started laughing out loud and I said to myself, That’s why this all was happening! Everything was happening at the right time, it was just that I hadn’t gotten the time right and thought that everything was happening at a strange time even though it wasn’t!
