On procr-ass-tination

Email conversation with my Managing Ed.

Me *digging up an old email thread*: Did I not send you this info?!

Omer: Nope.

Me: Wow. I have been sitting on this since the 19th of February.

Omer: It must have asphyxiated to death.

Fairy tale/Scary tale

Conversation after coming back from an evening at the theatre.

Zain: Mama, I LOVE your SHIRT!!

Me: Thank you, baby!

Solom: You know MAMA, you look like SNOW WHITE.

Me (twirling in front of mirror): Wow, thank you, jaani!

Solom: Please take the shirt off so I can give it to my teacher. I love her.

On school admissions

Me: So Zainoo, we're going to the big school for an interview tomorrow!

Zainoo: Yes.

Me: So if they ask you what your favourite song is, what will you say?

Zainoo: The Dora Goes to Office song.

Me: Dora goes where?? Can you sing it for me?

Zainoo *breaking into song*:

Dora goes to office
And she's not afraid
The car goes dhuzhh!
We have to be careful
Or it will RUN OVER US
It will CRUSH US
And... she dies!

Needless to say, I'm pinning my hopes on our alternative-choice school now.
