We love comparing our joys, miseries, achievements, and failures with others.

But what happens when the topic of comparison is a rather private one?

Ahem! Not sure what I’m talking about? Why don’t you find out.

How had he gotten his hands on the damn thing? If she remembered correctly, it had been hidden in the bottom drawer of her wardrobe beneath three rows of neatly folded socks and her crocheted bikini which she could only dream of squeezing into now. But she had kept the flimsy thing as a keepsake, […]

  1. Loved this one, Terveen. Butt cream! Ah well, the things I didn’t even know I needed. And when it comes to skimpy bikinis belonging to a previous life… I’ve decluttered mine not too long ago. My favourite line in your story, though, is this one ‘like an irritated toddler who wanted nothing and everything’. Wow. That says it all about irritated toddlers. Great story, Terveen!

    • Haha! I actually saw an advertisement for butt cream somewhere online. I was like – is this for real? It really is. I hope all those who do use it are happy with the results. I’m more of a face cream person. It’s all about choosing which cheek you’d like to pamper. And that line is perfect for toddlers, teenagers, and certain adults. 🙂

      • I’m with you, Terveen. More of a face cream user, myself. But(t) I wish all those who use it the results they are dreaming of. Will have little chat with my bum. Just to find out if this sizeable asset of mine feels neglected in any kind of way.

  2. An unexpected one from you again, kudos to how you wrote the entire work turning a peeping tom into butt of a joke,and without him even realising it!

  3. Haha, that’s so funny. “Butt cream”. Don’t you just hate those people who snoop around? And you have such a fun twist about it.

  4. First off…crocheted bikini? Good luck keeping your dignity when emerging from the water, my dear.

    Second, who goes looking for donuts in a sock/bikini drawer?

    Third, butt cream, Terveen? Really? I know they say write what you know, but some things are better kept to yourself (even if it looks pristine and feels like heaven to the touch).

    I’ll just end it here without making any cheeky comments.

    • Lol! Thanks a lot, Rhyan. All your points hit the mark. I was hoping for the fourth and fifth as well. But I suppose that every top must have a bottom and every beginning must have a rear end. And your cheeky words beat hot cross buns any day. 🙂

      • If I continued on, the puns would only have gotten worse and I sully your posts enough with my off the cuff comments. Consider my brevity a blessing.
