7 Times Sin Is 55: Envy

1 Sep

Mahrukh’s mother laid out the girls’ pyjamas.

“Lend the new set to your friend,” she said, fingering the frayed edges of her daughter’s lilac pair.

She walked in the next morning to find two soundly sleeping girls, one in shredded nightclothes and the other clutching a pair of scissors, smiling sweetly in her dreams.

    so sweet…when my kids get hold of a pair of scissors things tend to get more messy…usually with a badly cut fringe

    Oh, the travails of a mother
    What all we have to suffer
    Scissors and “spice
    And everything nice” ? ? ?
    What a misleading rhyme, O brother!
