You, my lovelies, are in luck because I've managed to steal one of my neighbours' Internet signal. I'll be getting my Internet connection back next week, inshaAllah but for now I'll have to settle with belkin54g's connection (thank you whoever you are!). That explains why I haven't been around to your blogs as much as I'd like to and why I've been bad at replying comments. The frustrating yet funny thing is, in order to get his/her signal I have to sit in a certain position on my bed and the slightest movement isn't allowed or else I'll lose the connection completely and reconnecting takes like 20 years. Which makes it really hard for me when I have to choose between answering nature's call or risk losing the internet connection I've managed to siphon.
Since I've been back there's heaps for me to do aside from my studies. I've finally moved back into my house therefore Mum and I have to get the house running in order again - reconnect the telephone line, pay all the bills, you know the usual housekeeping matters. Yesterday we headed to K Mart to buy some new things for the house and for some general winter shopping. Mum was looking at some blankets and I was getting bored so I looked around until I saw a man walking down one of the departmental store's aisles with a little girl around the age of 3. I presumed she was his daughter. I just thought it was the cutest sight ever because he was so tall and she was a tiny little thing and they were holding hands!
I mean, doesn't that make you wanna go 'Awwwww'?
And so I smiled at the heart-warming observation while noticing that one of the K Mart ladies was also watching them with delight. I looked away as soon as she realised that I was doing the same. It must've been a less than a minute later when a voice startled my Mum and I.
"Excuse me, is this your daughter?" said the voice.
I turned to the side and saw that it was the K Mart lady. My Mum didn't utter a word.
"Excuse me is this young lady your daughter?" she repeated.
"Yeah, I'm her daughter...." I replied eventually as my Mum was grinning from ear to ear because for some reason the cat got her tongue. She smiled, looked at my Mum's beaming face and said,
"Well, I just wanted to tell you that she's beautiful and she has purity. You have a beautiful daughter." Then she walked away.
I don't know about you but I'm loving K Mart's new marketing strategy.
Generously complimenting and flattering the customers. Pure genius. So if there's a K Mart where you live I strongly recommend you head down there and do as much shopping as you can. I'm such a fan now. Completely sold.
I LOVE YOU K MART!
O'oh I think nature's calling...
