Tick Talk

Do you think i should go for some kind of treatment - i cant seem to resist puns :)..oh well, we all have our quirks, and puns have been proven to be harmless except for odd cases where people have choked on their food... but then, timing is everything, isnt it... so lets do some tick talk...no, not the ones you find on your dog, the verb, the clock ticking... only in this case, i am referring to humans ticking... (no, not the ones they have in Sri Lanka!!)
all of us traverse the graphs which go around the thin line of emotionlessness, some skew more towards happiness and some towards sorrow, and most of us have a fair mix of both.. Like the charged ions who are forever trying to return to a neutral state, sometimes we too end up longing for a state of no emotion, maybe because we are at a stage where even happiness is momentary, and sorrows seem to last forever.. but we dont seem to fall into that emotionless state, because there's always something that keeps you ticking...
its different for different people, and different for the same person at different times..it could be the refreshing weekend that just got over, or the one thats about to start... the good song you just listened to, or the album that you are waiting for... a rocking love life,or an ex-love whose separation rocked you and left you with sweet nostalgic memories.... a lavish meal, or the thought where the next meal would come from.... a ride in your favourite machine,or being constantly taken for a ride.. standing outside with a pleasant breeze on your face,or stuck in the rain and just wanting to get inside...for good or for bad, there always seems to be something that makes us tick, until, in the end, like evrything else that has done its time, our machinery also has to stop..
until next time, what it is...makes you tick?

I am in that emotionless state you talk about. Funny, I was thinking about it in the morning.

Unintended puns would have been funnier.
