The Fastest Way to Start the Day (do-not-try-this-at-home version)

Our son, Walter (10), sleeps in the bedroom next to ours – we also have a common door.
This morning he asks me to dress him up (this negotiation process repeats itself every morning, by the way).
I inform him that this is unfortunately impossible – due to the fact that these moments I myself am hoping to get someone who dresses ME up.
Hearing this, he flies Hippo from his bed to ours, so Hippo will help me get dressed and so I can help Walter..
On the other hand, he himself admits he cannot rely with all this MasterPlan only on a single toy.. so he also flies Chicken, who according to the script will support Hippo in his devoted efforts to dress me up..
My husband wishes success to the mission, and – being pretty good in reading situations quickly – serves breakfast both to me and our son in bed today.

S like ‘ssssobig’

As widely known* (*for those who look now surprised – what were you reading up to now for God’s sake??) some weeks ago I ordered several clothes online.
Conclusion: this jumpsuit (size S) is sooo big that if I didn’t combine it with a belt, it would land in no time around my ankles.

Mental note: remember next time to order a belt..

Leuven

Recently I have visited a conference in Leuven University, Belgium.

Beautiful town.

From this fact and the quality of presentations I immediately concluded that one of our children should definitely come here to study.

I immediately started to contemplate which one of them should be The One, during which process I analysed highly scientific factors.

Among them the most relevant argument seems to be that the University is situated approx. 2 kms from the railway station, which distance needs to be covered completely on cobblestone, and that, on a daily basis, is really challenging on high heels, so it should be our son, Walter.

At the same time, if one of you is aware of a university which can be accessed on a smooth surface, please let me know, as apart from our 10-yr old son, I also feel like deciding on the future of my 13-yr-old daughter, is preferably still today.

Yes, we can!

Just seen the invitation to a renowned international event celebrating diversity – meaning very concretely an award ceremony for outstanding women in business, promoting ‘Gender Equality’.

For the indicated dress code please see the photo.

It is still a long way to go, I presume.. 😉

How to reduce the number of 1.5 billion potential civil lawsuits to a bunch of restaurant goers (still hungry)

Shopping centre, ‘oriental cuisine’.
Starting to eat the spicy chicken I immediately understand the reason behind the name choice of the restaurant: ‘Asian’. 
No wonder – if it was called ‘Chinese’, there would be 1.4 billion people immediately filing a lawsuit for Defamation.
(If ‘Vietnamese’, it would be only 100 million, though).
I have ordered a ‘small portion’ – for the exact quantity definition see the attached photo. 
First I am so naive to think that the staff member, seeing my slender figure, feels sorry for me, so she gives me a double… but then I realise it must be herself who normally has to carry home all the leftover, and she loves her own family as much as I do mine, so why would she want to punish them, of course.

Üzletközpont, ázsiai konyha.
Nagyon rég ettem ilyet, az íz és állag alapján rögtön megértem a névadás okát: “Ázsia”. 
Nem is csoda, mert ha kiírja, hogy “kínai”, abban a pillanatban fogja 1.4 milliárd ember felháborodottan magánvádas eljárásban beperelni becsületsértésért.
(Oke-oké, ha “vietnami”, akkor csak 100 millió).
Fél adagot kérek, melynek definíciója a csatolt fotón megtekinthető. 
Először elbizakodottan arra gondolok, hogy azért kapok mégis ilyen hatalmas mennyiséget, mert sudár alkatomból ítélve a konyhás néni úgy ítéli meg, hogy nyilvánvalóan éhezem, ám kóstolás után rájövök, hogy a megmaradt mennyiséget minden bizonnyal neki kell hazavinnie, és hozzám hasonlóan ő is szereti a családját, miért akarna tehát nekik rosszat.
