Ab to aadat si...

It's raining tags. Have been tagged twice in as many days, and that too by the same malefactor - AFJ. The rules:
(1) write a 100-to-200-word entry using the following words: I, me, blow job, grapes, random, power, loneliness, water, robot and blue;
(2) use these words once and only once; and of course
(3) the entry should make sense.

I'm sure I'm going to be kicked out, but then, I can always forward Kunal Kapoor's article to my boss! So, here goes...

I stood at the edge of the cliff, victorious, yet sad in all my glorious loneliness. Random thoughts crossed my mind while gazing at the deep blue water of the ocean. Was my victory real? Was true power a function of the position you achieve in an organisation, or the hearts you win in your life? Does man’s hunger for success turn him into a robot, sucking joy and happiness out of him, almost like the devil giving his soul a blow-job? He gets pleasure for an instance, but his life doesn’t seem worthwhile after that!

My friends thought that such thinking was a case of sour grapes for losers. But it affected me deeply. Suddenly, life lost its meaning. The ocean beckoned. My feet suddenly seemed to have found a life of their own and were no longer under my control. And then, there was nothing!

147 words.

May the Force be with you!

Obi Wan! Excellent job with the tag! Was it me for is the cliff thing a very Howard Rowark-ish thing to do? :)
Btw, your such a sweetheart and you do all the tags, so I love tagging you! :)
Amazing post! Brilliant job, I say! :D
You got to be kidding me.This was the exact theme of my tag.The same exact words to begin with.Except it wasn't me was him who stood at the edge of the cliff.
Now I have to think all over again..HMMPH!
Just came around to say you are welcome.Though I am not sure what you have thanked me for.
AFJ: Didn't do it consciously. In hindsight, the cliff and the lone man standing on it is similar to Howard Roark, but I guess that's not too surprising. The influence is far too powerful!!!

AFJ again: Thank you :-) Wasn't really complaining about the tagging! In fact, I freaked out on both the tags, since they gave me the opportunity to just let my mind go wild. So thanks again:-)

Rita: Dhanyawaad!

educatedunemployed: Don't tell me!!! Pls refer to AFJ's first comment :-) And btw, the thanks was for writing and posting such a lovely poem!
HA! Could be, at a very sub concious level.My man was a politician or may be an author, with very similar thought process.I had the draft in my head.Had I not come to your blog quizzing around,damn!!!Anyway,my thinking cap is on again.
Obi Wan - Awesome tag story! Kudos to a very well written story:)
the force is indeed strong in you, obi-wan...good one...

educatedunemployed: I checked out your new story. Very neat, but as I said, pls do write the original story also :-)
