Mirror, Mirror

Why your legs are so fat?

~One of my kindergarteners to me, looking up my skirt whilst I bent over her written work last term.

Is your nose usually that bulbous or is it water retention?

~My doctor to me, a few days ago.

That’s right. Pile it on. It’s a good thing I was born with the vanity gene missing.

    we see what we cant feel and what we can feel we never see… the soul of the traveller 🙂 ever so clear.

    Vaibhav above has got a nice rhyme
    And kids, they are truly sublime
    But why the doctor’s visit?
    Just to show your nose, is it?
    Do reassure us that you are just fine!

    Kids do say the darnedest things, dont they ? My friends son who is 6.5 years old once asked me how old I was. When I replied 24 he said I looked older. I am usually told I look more like 25 and so I say 25?? and hes like no more like 43 😦 .
    Btw whats with the doctor’s visit?? All well ??

    Bulbous? don’t you have the perfect, regal Parsi nose? I bet you do.

    All adult limbs seem huge to little kids.
    Why the doc? I hope all is well, including the nose:(
    (Cheek of the man).

    Nitya: You’ve been talking to my Boy, haven’t you? That’s exactly what he said after making all the appropriate outraged noises.

    vaibhav: I see.

    Aunty G: Oh totally. Just a routine visit.

    Prashanti: A three-year-old once tried guessing my age. At last try, I was 108. All well, thanks. 🙂

    Mom Gone Mad: Well, it is the largest thing on my face. And a cross between dad’s perfectly regal one and mum’s neat potato. Ergo, that’s a lot of nose.

    dipali: It also comes from some children having stick figures for mothers. All well, thank you! 🙂

    corporal punishment for the kinderg.
    and capital punishment for the doc.

    a tad harsh?

    maidinmalaysia: Please to be my evil alter ego.

    I’ll have to agree on that..Could one work with kids at all if they have a vanity gene? I wonder.

  12. Orange Jammies June 22, 2009 at 8:21 pm #

    In love with my life: Nope. Not happening.

    Hilarious. I remember as a child calling someone “Frog-face Aunty” in the hearing of her close friend and my poor, apoplectic mother.

  14. Orange Jammies June 23, 2009 at 11:30 pm #

    Thinking Cramps: Lol! 😆 I’m beginning to think I got off easy.

    *tries not to giggle*

    I also have a huge one, you know. As I just told MiM, when the rhinocracy takes over, we’ll rule, man.

    Hi, seen your comments at some of the blogs I visit. Doctor told my in laws that he thought something was wrong with their granddaughter b/c everyone in the house has large noses and the child had a small nose. Do Indian doctors have a nose fetish?

  17. Era July 14, 2009 at 6:43 pm #

    btw read a few posts, nice blog you have here.

  18. Orange Jammies July 14, 2009 at 7:54 pm #

    sunayanaroy: Sigh. And then I’ll be called Her Royal Rhinoness. Not for me is flattery in this life.

    Era: 😆 I hope not. Thanks for stopping by!
