Wait a minute Mr. Postman

Anybody else have this problem? The doorbell rings..aww man you have to grab your hijab and put it on before they leave. I've learned to yell out, " just a minute", but let me tell you they don't have much patience. What's worse is when you are wearing shorts or any indoor outfit and on top of hijab you have to throw on a jilbab and hope he doesn't run away before you do your superman act! Wouldn't it be cool if technology could invent some kind of cloaking device? Not to make you invisible but to make it appear like you are actually wearing a cloak over your ordinary clothes. Well in the meantime we need an outfit that you can just throw over yourself in a couple of seconds so we don't have to be calling out hey,hey wait a minute Mr. Postman.


  1. I can't believe it..this just happened again but this time it was different. It wasn't the postman or even a delivery guy but kind neighbours. They came to bring my kids a bike that used to be their daughter's. nice. Masha Allah.

  2. I'd love a door like we used to have when I was little: wood with a nicely made metal box-postcard sized, that had a nice grill on the outside, and a little latching door on the inside. I remember it being nice looking, not scary, or industrial.
    Get a chador, seriously, and a nice coat hook for it, that way you can swoop it on an be covered from head to toe.

    A chador eh? I think this would suit the bill.
    Check it out.
