She looked into the mirror, turning sideways, as is her routine.  “I think I am getting fat.  I’ll wear the other one.”

Standing behind her, I looked into the mirror.  She was getting fat; without a medical reason, a sure sign of greed and sloth.

We both will need to drink more water and go swimming, I thought.  We had no excuse.  The pool was less than 100 meters from our house.

We reverse the process, and she is now putting on the uniform skirt/Chinese top combo.

“How do I look in this?”

As always on the third change, I am over-enthusiastic.  I tell her she is beautiful, and after throwing down the mobile and giving her my undivided attention, I tell her this is my favourite.
