There's no such thing as empty promises
Yesterday was the day my brothers got a laptop each. Mama apparently promised to get them one if they get decent grades for their Os. Note to self: Never underestimate your children.
While I may think it may not be necessary for them to have one at the moment, I can't possibly imagine the going-ons in my brothers mind. Excitement perhaps? Motivated? I hope them seeing Mama fulfill her end of the deal will drive them to more success in future.
As expected, the laptops came with a string attached: "Promise me to give your best for the next 3 years." And this time around, it was my mama who quietly hopes that her sons will fulfill their end of the deal, insyaallah.
