Factual Fiction- Together we are famous

It is strange that nobody is noticing me in this place. Normally I am the object of everyone’s curiosity. There are questions directed about me and my brother. Everybody smiles at me and asks my name. Some even ask whether I am a boy or a girl or how come we brothers do not resemble each other or how do the parents tell us apart or how do they manage us (what gall!).

Oh, now I realize. I have come alone and my twin brother is back at home. Therefore nobody is noticing me.

====================================================================

These series of stories called factual fiction are stories based on facts with elements of fiction added to spice it up. I have taken a lot of writer's liberties here. I have blended separate incidents and stories about different people and knitted them into single stories. The experiences may be mine or may not. Hope you guys are enjoying it. If yes, it is not evident in the comment tally!!

Hey, I live for your comments and feedback. Keep it coming... Lurkers, pls de-lurk...can you sense the desperation here!! I am sick of single digit figures in the comments section.


Soon I would be starting a series of my learnings in the gym. Hope you guys will enjoy that too.

Just like that said...

I see comments aren't as much as for other posts. tho' am sure your wickedly droll sense of humour is appreciated by all, ;-) I certainly love it- its different!

There, I de-lurked! :-)

I absolutely enjoy your tiny tidbit stories 'coz I'm a huge fan of the 'short and sweet' genre - it's truly an art to say so much with so less. And trust me, not everyone can do that.

Please don't let the comment tally bother you - if even one person is reading it, I think you have a MORAL OBLIGATION to continue writing ;-)
(Hehe, 'm hoping I can guilt you into writing more with big words like 'moral' and 'obligation' - did it work?)

I hear ya regarding lurkers. Comments have been light lately, but an occassional check of the site meter and "Wow" there are a lot of readers. Keeps me somewhat encouraged.
