Day 32 – Second

Start of the second month, the shortest of the lot.

Have you ever wondered why the second month got short-changed so badly?

There were 11 other months to choose from why the second month had to be the shortest?

If the months were siblings in a family, would it feel ignored?

This reminds me of my sister who used to complain that being second means she wasnt given enough importance in the family. This was long before we had come across anything called birth order.But then  the Hindu published something on birth order in their Sunday magazine and she said, “Look, that’s my line! Now I have a study to prove it too”

Some time back in a conversation, she mentioned about how the first one has to be paid a lot more attention now that the second one is here. I reminded her about this topic from long ago.

Picture: I posterised a picture of the elevator button. Tried it for the first time and loved it 🙂

PS: If you really need to know why Feb is the shortest month here are 2 links I looked up:
