You know you're fasting when...

1. You're the grumpiest one in the grocery store.
2. Outside of prayer times and work you're hibernating like a brown bear.
3. After a frantic search one hour before maghrib at your local grocery store you run up to the 16 year old stock boy in a frenzy screaming I've been looking everywhere for dates, I can't find ANY! Can you pleeeease tell me where I can get some?!
4. You've had to explain to someone why you look like you're struggling to climb into the office bathroom sink for a quick bath.
5. You're the one at the company lunch touching nary a celery, yet mysteriously gaining 15 pounds over the course of a month.

Ramadan Mubarak :)

I can't relate, but those are great.

I hope that your Ramadan is going well and that you are adjusting to your new job! :)

Those were good ones. Hehe..
That point #4 is a year-round ordeal though, right? But I never thought of saying "a quick bath", that is very creative, LOL!

I can certainly relate to the 15 pound gain comment. And there are far worse things you could do in a bathroom sink.

Mystic :) The image of people as they struggle to squeeze their leg over the sink.. always made me think that :)

Rehtwo, yeah adjustment in progress :) Thanks for thinking of me!

Furfura, this is true, but those who are doing this are probably fasting too! :)
