D16 – the countdown begins
My first thought when I look at myself in the mirror apart from the customary "wow" is “how the hell can I fast 16 days and not appear any lighter” is it gluttony? Naaah can’t be, I am the perfect Ramadanist as far as consumption is concerned at least, and I do my best with the rest
The second thought is: it’s a new day, I’ll try to be a good girl, and not comment on that girl in the office whose CRAZY dress sense makes my jaw drop and my eyes open wide every time she passes, but I always take comfort in the fact that the whole floor feels the same, I see chairs swinging 90 degrees, voices turn to whispers and jaws dropping in unison in shock at this massive VPL (visible panty line if you weren’t familiar) and the shortest skirt since large belts were invented.
But I am fasting, so I won’t comment today…not verbally anyway, maybe tomorrow I will be able to hold myself altogether and be a good girl, but I am only human and helpless against her super human powers of fashion faux pas! Don’t judge me.
Feelings on this 16th Day of fast: a bit hungry, an overwhelming sence of penitence, confused, cold, still a bit sad about the end of my relationship, bored obviously, wishing for sunshine and warmth and willing BA to run an offer for Eid(1) so I can go home for the last weekend of August.
