Birthday Musings over a Jelly Donut (and a glass of milk)

Bismillah.

This jelly donut looks so round and white. Yum. I deserve this. I'm 21 today, so why not be 21 while eating a jelly donut and having a white mustache of sugar and milk?



Hmm, this jelly donut is kind of stale. Stupid Tim Hortons! "Baked fresh daily" my foot! I kind of feel stale too. 21 years and not much to show for it. Except some laugh lines around my mouth.



Yes, finally hit the jelly! What a sham - jelly donuts only have a tiny smidge of jelly. They should call them "jelly in the haystack" donuts. The rest is just stale pastry covered in powdery sugar that gets all over your face.



This jelly is starting to look like blood! Why am I so violent? Maybe 21 is a violent age. I mean, it's so old, I'm not ready to be 21! 21 means I'm going to expire soon. My best before date is coming! Stupid donut!



Okay, now I just feel like barfing. Donut overload :(



Okay just one last piece, I can do this! And I can do 21 without being scared. I can face it! Maybe.



Done. Hey...is that a boston cream?

Alhamdulillah.

Next time try spoiling yourself with a Dairy Queen ice cream cake. It looks like you really got stiffed on the jelly.

Happy birthday kiddo! May Allah bless you with khayr and make you a model of taqwa.

were you typing this while eating? Your keyboard / camera must be covered in white dust. On the plus they now taste sugary

"my foot!" LOL

i'm just surprised you took pictures as you ate. I've never witnessed anyone do that before.

Happy Birthday Asmaa.

Very creative post. I see that you used my "my foot" line... oh well - consider that your birthday present from me: permission to use my line. :)

I suggest you buy donuts from Country Style instead since they're so much better than the ones at Tim Horton's. :)

Happy Birthday, Asmaa! Oh, don't feel old at age 21! Just wait until you're facing your 38th birthday, like I am. (My birthday is next week.)

Have a great day Asmaa!

And Nauman doesn't know what he's talking about. Tim Horton's has the best donuts (just um not in the flavour you chose lol).

You have a lot of patience to chew swallow and click :)

Brotherhood, it's not a cake, it's a donut :D Don't tell me they don't have donuts in the UK. And you call yourselves civilized...

Sara, haha yes, I feel sick for 10 minutes and then I'm like...hey that other donut looks great. I kind of like stale donuts :D

Squeeky, hehe yes I need to relax. Ameen to your dua, thanks :)

Heglameister, yeah the jeely was completely insufficient :(

Rizwan, thanks and ameen :)

MTR, yeah my camera was covered with white sugar, but I didn't lick it off, if that's what you're insinuating. Hahaha.

Slave of Allah, yeah I have too much time on my hands, clearly.

Nauman, thanks :) "My foot" is not your line, I don't think I've ever heard you use that. Well at least not from what I can remember. What a cheap and lame birthday gift. Loser.

Elizabeth, hehe thanks, well being 40 first starts with being 21 and growing, so I'm on that path. It's a scary path. Happy early birthday to you though!

Aaliya, thanks. I fully know Nauman doesn't know what he's talking about. There's nothing new about that ;)

Why don't you upgrade to the new blogger?

...so, how old are you again?

Asmaa said...

Traveler, I might. I think it's getting kind of irritating because the old blogger has been neglected and now has defects! grrr!

Umar, 12.
