Dhanno said yesterday: “After my Board exams, I’m going to take Time and put It in the mixie, and grind It, and take It out and throw It on the floor, then mop It up, and throw the mop in the dustbin. I’m going to waste and waste Time.”

Her friend Shy said : “We’ll just sit at the window and not even talk to each other, that is how much Time we will waste.”

Poor kids, studying hard for their Std. X exams.

I meanwhile, continue to waste Time, gadding about unabashedly.

That is factually incorrect, the gadding about and the being unabashed. But I did so want to use those words.
