Shopping From The Kids' Section | Midnights with CZ Part-III


I'm not ashamed to say I frequent the kids' section of every brand. 
I've bought t-shirts, dungarees, coats, jackets.....socks, gloves, snoods.....
I even checked out some Indian wear recently, before Diwali, and the salesman 
was like: "Itni fitting nahi hoti aapke liye." (or something like that). 
Of course not, I said to him. It was a 10-12 Yrs size, and I need a 12-14 Yrs
Woh fitting acchi ayegi. 
The look he gave me. He'll never understand.

If you're a little petite woman, and sometimes a UK 6 just doesn't cut it, or a fitted jacket is never truly fitted on you & ankle pants need to be chopped off at least 2 inches, you'll understand.

Here are a few of the things I managed to click pictures of - in August! That's when I was gonna put this post up......

Midnights with CZ | Part-1



My alarm went off, and jerked me out of one of the best sleeps I’ve ever had.

The sleep I was supposed to be having at normal sleeping hours, the sleep

that usually plays hard-to-get, until my 'If I fall asleep now, I'll get this much sleep....'

plummets from hours to mere minutes.


I peeled the duvet off myself, rolled like a wingless bird to the edge of the bed to grab my laptop that's (over)charged on the floor. This part is when I always imagine it slipping from my hand & crashing on the floor, because why not, I kinda deserve to be punished for precariously picking a Macbook like a handkerchief.


In a manner that had become second nature, I opened Zoom, typed the ID & password, 

clipped a plain sheet of paper on the clipboard.

Btw, now I cut an A4 sheet into half, like a proper kanjoos.

But it's not about kanjoosness. 

Who else has been using & wasting so much paper during this pandemic, 

you think you should go feed a tree?


Pencil? Sharpened quickly on the bathroom counter.

Eraser? Couldn't give a fudge about how black & dirty it was. It should clean itself.

Water Bottle? I ran to the bedroom to fetch it.


My other alarm went off - means 2 minutes before the class starts.

I called out to my kid, who’s downstairs finishing up with brushing his 

teeth & washing his face. I heard him rush upstairs, like a good boy.


"Coming!", he called out excitedly.


He propped himself on the chair in front of the laptop.

I told him NOT to sit with his legs wide apart. Bad Manners!


Ready.
