God Sees Me

In my nice convent school, where I studied because Mom wanted her kids to wear white uniforms to school (no thanks, Mom), we had a special examination prayer.

The Principal used to ask us to close our eyes and repeat "God sees me". It was the anti-cheating mantra that was supposed to ensure that we wear moral blinkers for the three hours we were regurgitating information on paper.

I hated the nauseous, semi-dead feeling that examinations induced in me. Following the Principal's lead, I would shut my eyes and recite:
"God. Sieze me."

I'm sure God must have re-arranged that prayer to mean "Do See Me Zig".

HE's still doing it. :)

@Funda: Lucky you!
@TT: Pitegi tu.
@SWB: Hey! Me's good, Howz you?
@Orange Cloud: God does not pay much heed to student-types during exam season. He'd go mad.

Yup, God usually seized me during exams; I'd quitely spend all of time "meditating".

No wonder, eh?

All green, no yellow?
