Fill in the blanks

Fill in the blanks with the most appropriate word.

1.A diamond, unlike coal, is a ________ that has certain specific properties that can be determined and rated.

2.________ rocks have multiple colors because they are made from various fragments as well as animal and plant remains.

I know there are quite a few people out there who would have loved this part of the question paper like me. Atleast I needn't awaken the creative part of my brain to write a few sentences which meant the same, but sounded different enough to make the examiner feel that I knew everything about the answer in question ;-)

Today as I sat on that chair waiting for the dentist to fill the gaps between my teeth.. I couldn't help but relate the situation with the fill in the blanks question we used to have for our examz :P
As the student in question(a well known dentist) came all set for the examination, and went through the blanks in the question, I wasn't really sure if he would get everything right. He finished his examination in 2 hours, though the TAT was 1 hour. That left me thinking was it that hard a blank to fill. 

Ma'am please have a look and let me know if this is fine.As I searched for the blanks..I gave hime a smile.. .He had filled the most appropriate fillers in those blanks spaces between my teeth so well.. he knew what to do with each and every space that was present and he did a great job. It was so fine that no one could really make out the difference until they sat and observed it for looong.. of course my Big Sis is known for her skills and did finally agree there is some change...

Gladly I reward him full marks (I must say full fees) and I gave it with a smile...a smile more prettier than the one I had before.

And if you still haven't figured out the right words for the fill in the blanks question... here are the answers :P
1 Mineral
2 Sedimentary

The last and final call

"This is the Last and final call for the 100m Sprint.... participants please report to the starting point"

With bated breath I walked towards the starting point. I could feel my mouth go dry.. my knees growing weaker with every step I took.

I've been there and done that before... soo many times.. but each time I go through the same ordeal. As though it were the first time though it was just a matter of a few seconds. I was so lost in my thoughts that I didn't realize that I've reached my destination.

I was not really happy to see my fellow athletes who've come to cheer me up."Relax... you look like your going to puke" someone whispered
Relax huh?? you expect me to relax when I see the expectation in each of your eyes?? Ah.. they blew the whistle again.. reminding me its time to pick one of those tokens to know you lane.
Somebody shouted at me "Hey you.. you are on lane 1"Phew.. "Daz can cover up over the curves"
I told myself as I walked to the lane and stood near the starting line.

On your marks... get set.... Go...

At the sound of the rifle.. I plunged forward with all my might.. ran for my life.. and finished.. Everything happened so fast...thats it.. and I did win the race like other times...
Soo much of drama in my mind for those very few though it were the run for my life.. but I know it definitely wasn't the Last and Final Call of my life!!
