These days, people [to be read as neighbors, acquaintances, ex’s, the inquisitive etc…] have taken it upon themselves to be updated frequently on my whereabouts. Yes, it is for a fact that I prefer to keep my life private, [who doesn’t?] I guess that’s the reason why all the more.. people find it fascinating to want to find out.. what’s up with him?
In one way it makes me feels good, that so many people want to know my movements, makes me feel important. Not that I do anything special.. I go about doing normal things that normal people do.
Like people see me in a bus heading towards Panjim..and they’ll ask
“You’re going to Panjim?” with a big question mark on their face
– “Why? Am I not allowed to travel there?”
Or if my neighbors don’t see my car in the building.. they’ll ask mom,
“Savio’s gone out or what?” – isn’t that obvious? I am the only one in the family who drives the car and if it isn’t there, the chances are that I have driven it somewhere.. duh!
Even at Sunday mass, I find eyeballs following me – I don’t understand why. If people want something, they could approach and ask me..I don’t bite ..at worst, they’ll get some kind of an uncharacteristic response from me, which they might not understand. I tend to do that a lot, just to confuse people.
You have one life, lead it well. Don’t go about bothering about others
