Macro Moments Challenge: Week 16

Nope , am not a photographer. I don’t have patience . It’s like fishing. Wait for the moment and click at THE exact time to capture the perfect moment. Who has so much time?

But , I have a husband , who as I said earlier , loves lilliput stuff more than anything else, has patience and passion for waiting for THE moment. When I noticed on Susan’s blog about the Macro Moment challenge , ¬†I started pestering him for settings , I could pick a macro pic from his collection myself, but he has to supply me with camera details and settings. You see , am an enabler , I help to spread hubby’s hobby , I must be the greatest wife on planet earth evil laugh ūüėÄ

I realised , am blabbing a lot. Here is the pic. It took a week and now, here it  is. Susan. Thanks for this challenge!

somethingūüôā¬†. I will update the exact settings as soon as hubby provides. next time , I will be better prepared!

The insect : Hey , that yellow pollen looks delicious. I have to get it for Mrs Insect! She will make a perfect soup.

Hello , hello ..

Head : Am thinking of doing this prompt ..

Your blog is about¬†to be recorded into an audio book. If you could choose anyone ‚ÄĒ from your grandma to Samuel L. Jackson ‚ÄĒ to narrate your posts, who would it be?

Head: Hmm, who would be the best person to¬†record my posts … and then make me sound like the¬†most mature , intelligent brainy person ever walking on earth.

(Yawning )¬†Now you sound bore, utter BOORE. Find a person who will sound you like sexiest woman alive… Boy , you will be popular with hundreds in tow.

Head: Hundreds of toddlers in tow? Lady .. you are not 17 anymore And this is not about you , but your posts!

Oh hell ! You are still so bore …

Head:So lets see , someone who is epitome of great voice , obviously Amitabh Bachchan.

Head-o-wise-man , He is a dude . At least choose a female voice.

Head: Well , that is not in the rule and his voice is so sexy even when he is speaking in she! Kabhi Kabhi mere dil .. 

Okay -So imagine Amitabh , A¬†boy , a gentleman saying out loud¬†“ And then I became a mother ..” or “Being in red skirt , orange blouse for award ceremony” or
or a person of such respect talking about nothing other than fart !

Rolling on the floor laughing aka ROFL !

Oh boy .. I wanna hear Amitabh advocating for fart and pee and yawning wearing a red skirt..talking about being a mother..
Head: okay , okay , Stop I get it. No Mr Bachchan , then Who ?

Hmm , Priyanka Chopra , That girl from Quantico. Heard she is gonna be Oscar Presenter this year..So why not first audio record my posts , blab in red skirt and orange blouse , tell about to be a mother. What say ?

Head :Well , She can , but she has found her foothold and is not gonna spoil it reciting¬†your posts , I mean look at what you write ! how you just like to nap at the first chance on¬†European¬†shores in full¬†view of public like it is your backyard , or how you aren’t sure of your height – tall or short¬†or , wanna get drunk¬†

Holy lord ! my own head makes me sound like one low esteem , lazy , drunk , homeless fellow!

Head : You asked for it lady !

Moral of the story

And thus the voices stopped. Head and heart could not together find one name to read¬†my posts… Sorry Daily Post , ¬†sorry wordpress , good prompt but no name.



 

PS:  I asked my husband ;

Husband: Think of how much money Amitabh will demand ..he is a superstar!

Me: (rolling eyes , yawning after a fart and a good burp ) :¬†Don’t get carried away sweetie, it is just a prompt..no one is actually recording!
