365 Writing Prompts: Mirror, mirror

Finish this sentence: “when I look in the mirror, I…..”

I look in the mirror and tell myself, what were you thinking when you were introducing yourself in the online course? Did you not see there were a lot of paragraphs before the  words introduce yourself?

No mirror I did not, either I thought it was there decorating the page or perhaps for the rest of the participants to read and react.

Two days later I’m telling myself, no wonder my brother always accused me of not observing everything around me. This my dear mirror is one I should have been aware of.

Now one hundred forty-nine comments later, I was curious enough to tell myself, now what are all these paragraphs about, introduce yourself shouldn’t be so long.

It’s no use feeling bad, “so mirror next time warn me before I make a mistake of not reading the most important part.”  😦

Daily Prompt: Forgive and Forget

pad2015-s1.png (308×60)

Share a story where it was very difficult for you to forgive the perpetrator for wronging you, but you did it–you forgave them.

My story is about what happened to me in school when I was seven years old. One of my classmates did not do her homework, she asked me to lend her mine, I refused, the bell was rung, I did not have enough time  as we  were required   to run to join the rest of the people for prayer.

When we came back to our classroom, the teacher asked to see our homework, I took out my exercise book and opened the page where I had done my homework, to my dismay the page was missing. When I ran for prayer my classmate stayed back and tore off the page from my book.

I was scared and did not know how I should tell the teacher, what happened. I went up to her and showed my book with the missing page. the teacher asked my classmate if she tore the page, at first she denied, when she was asked the second time she admitted tearing the page.I cannot remember if she was punished, I was happy that the teacher believed me.
