365 Writing Prompt: Mirror,mirror

Finish this sentence:”Whenever I look in the mirror …..I

Whenever I look in the mirror I think now that our Ramadhan has started, I wonder If I’m losing some weight or gaining instead, no I shouldn’t gain I should lose. I’m fasting for eighteen hours, I don’t eat lunch or snack or any kind of sweets, It should help to lose weight.

Mirrors do not really help it shows one thing in the morning and another in the late afternoon,maybe I should rely on the weighing scale that will give me the true picture.

So mirror, mirror on the wall you do not give me a true picture at all!

DP Daily Prompt: No Fair Post by Ranu

I am thinking what is it I think is terribly unfair. There are quite a few in my head. One of them is fasting,our fasting month started in the month of July and continued till the first week in August. I have no trouble with it. But at the same time to fast from before sunrise to sunset in the month of July is where it gets kind of difficult. Depending on where you live it is over eighteen solid hours with no food or drink. We get the same credit as those who fast for much less time than us.It is all because of location.

The only way I can rectify is to move to a location where the days and nights are almost the same length. Moving out bag and baggage has its own predicament. It is not easy ,one has to consider the job prospects,housing,the location etc, I guess we have to be happy with our situation and wait for fasting season in December,when you only have to fast for about ten hours. It’s a massive cut!
