Dear Readers, you may notice the dates of the Blog do not match the Flash Post dates which are in real time. The blog was written in 2009 and saw the light of day 6 months back when my younger daughter discovered it and decided to bring it to you here.

The Midnight Binge | Flash Post 298


Button, last night, at around twelve, I heard Dost silently walking out of our bedroom on tip toes because, it was obvious that, he didn’t want to wake me up. This is something  he’s never done before and I guessed he was either going out to fetch some medicine or get a bottle of water for himself.

Did you wake up?

Not really. These days, I sleep like a baby but I just about woke up for a split second before dozing off again but woke up a second time when he returned.

Did you ask why he’d gone out?

I did. I found him creeping back into our room and heard him munching on something.

What was he munching on?

Marie biscuit!

Are you serious?

One hundred percent. He even announced that he just felt like eating some Marie biscuit.

Marie biscuit to be precise? That too at midnight?

When I showed alarm, he offered me one which I accepted and the two of us munched on them before falling asleep again.

That is so cute. Why did he choose the Marie biscuit and not any other biscuit?

Because the other biscuit kept on the kitchen table every night, together with the Marie for next morning’s tea, are cream cracker biscuits which he hates!
