I pick up my boys from school everyday.
On the way to the car today, Mujahid, my youngest in Year One (First Grade) asked rather nonchalantly, “Abi, Aid nak tukar kelas boleh tak? (Dad, can I switch class?)”
A little surprised, I replied, “Kelas ni sekolah yang aturkan. Biasanya tak boleh. Kenapa? (Classes are arranged by the school. So usually no. Why?)”
“Semua orang nak pinjam kaler Aid! (Everybody want to borrow my color pencils!)”
Then Muhammad asked if he could buy a calligraphic pencil. I asked him if it was required and if all other students had one. He said not really, but a few students already had them. He said he tried to borrow one from Isyraf, but Isyraf refused. So Muhammad told Isyraf to return all the orange drink that Isyraf had drunk from Muhammad’s water bottle. And Muhammad said Isyraf asked how could he return the drink when Muhammad let Isyraf drink it from Muhammad’s water bottle.
Hmmm… must had been a fun day at school today.
