The phone alarm rings. One of those mechanical sounds that are meant to goad you into action. I turn lazily, and open my eyes gradually to adjust to the bright light of day.
The first thing I do is check my phone for messages, emails and the other notifications that I have enabled.
I wake up with a jolt. There are no red circled numbers near my message or Whatsapp icons, not even near the email icon.
Something must be wrong, I check the WiFi icon, the curved tree is in full bloom. Then why have I not got any messages? I am almost tempted to shake my phone, but reboot instead. Even after the phone comes alive again, there are no messages. Nothing has changed!

I ask my husband to send me a test message. It arrives immediately. I am still suspicious, how could I have not received even a single message or email? That’s like a ‘first’.
The statistical probability of this event baffles me..! I check the Internet, everything is ok.
I accept. I give in. The impossible has happened. It is possible…I smile, I go on with my day. But believe me I feel strange!
Have you had any such experiences? Would love to know.
