Next time I’ll enunciate?

Khalid, Iman and I stop in to use the restroom before I swing by a legal office to pick up some papers for work. I am holding a large, black leather document binder with fancy official paperwork inside.

Me: Khalid, I would like to use the bathroom, would you watch this for me please?

Khalid: (Looking uncharacteristically blank) What?

Me: Watch this for me please? Here, take it.

Khalid: (Cheerfully) Ok!

I use the bathroom and return to Khalid.  He hands me my folder- dripping wet.

Me: Khalid, what happened?

Khalid: I washed it for you!

Me: You washed it?

Khalid: Yes.  With soap and water.

Me: *blink blink*

Khalid: *proud smile*

Me: Good job sweetheart.  Thank you.

    Lol @ washing/watching – mA you seem to have a lot of patience, well done. Don’t know what I would have done, prob just cried :/
    Gotta say I love the Khalid stories and how you’re documenting them here, will a be a lovely read I’m sure in the future when he’s older inshaAllaah. Praying for you all 🙂

    Also, there’s very few people like Miffy out there, living ‘in the real world’ – it’s mostly just the older generation I guess. If we’re like this now (living in the internets too here!), wonder what in the world the next generation will be like!

    Take care 🙂

    You know- I know there are older people who don’t use the internet except nervously and as little as possible, like my dad for example- but Miffy is my age! I think that’s what shocked me the most!

    On the plus side, having been shamed by Miffy’s exceptional economy of time (and brainpower) I’ve cut back on useless internetting greatly. I’m getting a little bit more work done, but the cool thing is I’ve suddenly found a whole extra hour to exercise in, lol. Who knew! So HF bought me a new pair of electric lemon yellow sneakers. For my electric lemon yellow work-out time every evening. Now my feet are fluorescent. And citrus-fresh!
