The experience, un-experienced!

It all begins from the beginning… (how lame! :D)

You know what type of being I am by now. I am like that mad hatter, obsessed with those daft-uncommon things which (no wonder) no one would even think about doing.

Well, that day had come. I wanted to do it for such a long time but I just didn’t have the chance alone at my home, so I could relish my time with no one bossing around me. I re-checked that no one was at home, and even locked the door twice or maybe thrice. Then I went to my mom’s bathroom which I used usually, closed the bathroom door (almost silently) and took a deep breath, even gulped. And there I saw it shining! (Well, not shining actually but it was bathed in sunlight :P).

It was sitting solely on one far corner of the bathroom. The washing machine! Of course! (Haha!)I climbed on the toilet seat which was beside it and went into it. I opened the machine’s switch and pressed some buttons, and it started filling water into it. I had a wicked smile on my face that moment and made out one wicked laugh. (How foolish of me!)

I crouched in and closed the washing machine’s cover. And the game had begun! The water was cold, and I got goose bumps in the beginning. But I didn’t care about it, what I cared about was living that moment of my life.

There was water all around me, and the machine sucked the water from the bottom part and threw it over me from all my sides, moving clockwise and anti-clockwise. I felt like I was swimming in the sea and the waves playing tug of war with me, coming from all the ways possible. This carried on for like 15 minutes but it seemed that since forever I had been inside.

Then, the water drained… and not in some split seconds it started re-filling. The episode was repeated but this time it was a bit harsh with me and it seemed that it was angry for some reason because of the way it growled. It felt that it was going in the same way for a while and when it stopped to go the other way around I had to hold my head as it wasn’t able to adjust to that movement, which in physics you would call as inertia.

After the repeated episode, the machine moved vigorously for some time. I thought maybe it couldn’t endure my weight (that actually wasn’t possible :P). So, to convince me it started working again. But this time, a new serial started.

There was no water in it anymore now, and it started spinning really fast, I was confused that moment and thought did I do something wrong, and it didn’t even stop when I shouted at the top of my voice. I even tried to catch something for support. But my hands just slipped.

I couldn’t realize from which way the gravity was attracting me, and I felt I was in a barrel rolling down a hill. Round and Round! And Selena Gomez’s song was playing in my head. “Round and round we’re never gonna stop going, round and round we’ll never get where we’re going, round and round well you’re gonna miss me cause I’m getting dizzy going round and round and round and round… WooO WOoo WooooO!”

In a few minutes it reduced its speed. But, the song was still playing in my head. And in a while or so when I got back to my senses, I opened the washing machine cover and found the machine had closed, as it always did ‘automatically’.

I felt dizzy and made an attempt to get out of it. “It’s enough for one day!” I said to myself. But, as soon as I realized that, I found something hard had struck on my head. And I don’t know where I fell then…

“Aaaaaa!” I shouted and woke up in amazement. “What’s wrong Ruqaiya?! Why are you shouting?!” My brother exclaimed.

I found myself rolled in a blanket, sweating hard and fallen from my bed on the floor. And I just murmured back “Ohh dear! I wish I could actually have done that…”

Got on my bed and went back to sleep again…

Cheers to my imagination! 😉
