F for Forecasts #AtoZChallenge

‘Dia, are you going to your mom’s place this week?’ asked Sameer looking up from the newspaper.

‘No, why do you ask?’ asked Dia.  She was relaxing on the bed with a book.

‘The forecast says, “This will be a peaceful week.”’ said Sameer laughing.

Dia threw a pillow at him.

‘Now that you said it, I will surely go to mom’s place.  It’s been almost a month since I met her,’ said Dia perking up. 

‘So, the forecast is true,’ continued Sameer.

‘Nah,  don’t believe them.  I am sure it’s a program like those computer horoscopes.  Just put in a few random words, gargle, and spit it out.  Put some flowery adjectives, and the forecast is ready.  ’

‘Really?  What about the star and planet positions?  It cannot be a program.’

‘Sameer, check your own forecast for the past few months.  You will see the pattern.  Aaaaand, I am off to see my mom, thanks to the forecast.’


***This has been written for the A to Z Challenge 2015. My theme is A to Z in the life of Dia and Sameer, a geek and non-geek couple.  Short stories on their approach to daily life.  Do you know people like them?  Do share the stories with me. ***
