Crisp

Cleaning the back seat of my car after IB (grandson) has been having Crisps is an added chore for me. He is no worse than Son who equally litters the front seat. Minute flakes lies on the carpet– in the front, and in the back.

My little lady bug fails to pick up all the crisp flakes. I haven’t yet bought a car cleaner. Son has an old heavy version of a vacuum cleaner. This means I have to bring the car in front of the apartments to do the needful. In this crippling heat, plus I’m fasting, I don’t have the energy to super clean. I do the itsy bitsy cleaning, and let go leaving the through cleaning for another day.

Infinite 


Last year when I came back to Peshawat for a short while, I broke my bedside night lamp beyond repair. I should have removed it from harm’s way. I was in a hurry to vacuum the area around my bed, and bed table. It’s cord got entangled with the vacuum cleaner’s attachment. I wanted to snatch back the time before it broke. 

This year I did the same thing. While cleaning I grabbed the momento of the fort given to my late husband at a farewell party. Thankfully the plastic side of the covering can be rejoined with the magic formula available in the market. 

I should take infinite care while I’m cleaning,  which clearly I don’t. Let’s hope I don’t break any other precious thing. My husband used to say when I would be upset over breaking something , “Don’t grieve over breakable things. These things don’t last, and they are replaceable”.
