The time I love most.
Both of us were still lying on the bed.
Mummy sayang my face and said, “How oh?”
“When I go back.”
“Nothing one mah. Iris is also alone in UK what.”
“That’s different. She’s got housemates.”
“I also got what. Ducky is my housemate.”
I lifted Ducky and pointed it to Mummy.
Today I got bitten by my shoes.
A new pair of shoes. White. I like.
But it was only 10 in the morning and it started to pain. I’ve got to wear it until it doesn’t bite anymore. It bites now because it’s new.
So I pretend to walk like it doesn’t hurt from my desk up to the pantry and then hop my way to the toilet from there because no one can see me there.
Had a short tea break with the girl sitting in front of me. I shared with her the 2 slices of chocolate cake and a slice of carrot cake that I brought.
We talked about “Open Season”. The rabbits, the bear, Elliot, the “buddy” porcupine.
Sometimes I feel like she’s my sister.
This morning I discovered that my slippers above have been stolen away. Makes no sense to me. I’ve got other nicer shoes out there waiting to be stolen but this fella took my army slipper. I also don’t know why.
And I like that slippers a lot. Got it only for RM10.
Anyway, went shopping with Mum today and happened to bump into the same stall again. And I spotted the army slippers. Slightly different but still the same army colours.
Mummy: Do you have a bigger size of this slippers?
Guy: No, that’s the last pair.
So, I tried it on again. Can fit lah.
Mummy got one slippers too.
Mummy: How much is one?
Guy: One is RM5. But you cannot buy just one. You’ve got to buy a pair so it’s RM10.
Mummy: No discount?
Guy: You buy two pairs, free one plastic bag. I can give you another plastic bag if you want.
Guy: What size do you want for this?
Mummy: I thought you said this is the last pair?
Guy: Oh yaya. Kena shoot again.
Guy: Is she your mother?
Guy: When your mother is younger, I think she used to be a killer. Because she just shoot me just now.
Mummy: Do you have a bigger size for this shoes?
Sales Attendant: What is the size of your feet?
Sales attendant: What’s the size of your feet?
Sales attendant: M?
Mummy: Oh! Sorry sorry. *laughing* I kept thinking about the size of my clothes.
So, my mum’s shoe size is M okay?
Reporting to work on the first day and a purple mechanical pencil awaits me at my new desk.
To whoever who prepared the pens and pencil for me, thank you so much.
Would like to think it’s coincidence. But it’s very thoughtful.
Why? Because it’s purple.
