Toot Means Berries In Arabic, Kay

You know how you've always said exactly what's on your mind at exactly the right moment?
And there's this one person who scares the living shit out of you, and you never say the right thing and you always end up looking like a complete fool infront of them?
And ten seconds after they're gone everything you should have said basically floods your brain?

That person is my mother. She thinks I am a moron. And rightfully so.
Why is it that I never seem to do anything she'd ever be proud of infront of her? I know there must be some things I've done that she'd like...

Alright three things. Which isn't too bad, actually.
You don't know who I live with.

My wallet was stolen yesterday. I got reeaalllyy upset the first five minutes, and then I decided I wasn't going to let that be the cherry on top of an ubelievabley horrid day.
There are starving children in India who would give their right arms to have a stolen wallet be the biggest of their problems.

I hate when I start ending all my sentences with: "Oh who cares. We're all gonne die in the end anyway. We might as well be.... Civil."

Although it is kinda true...

PS. I'm fine, Kay :-) Thanks for asking.

Aww, Sweetie.

We moms aren't always the best at showing our support and pride in our daughters, I guess.

I know I expected a lot out of my daughter, I knew she had such wonderful potential and was so smart and so pretty - and she just kept throwing away opportunities.

But I still cry when I see videos of her dancing, because she is so beautiful, and so talented, and I am so proud of her.

I know too - that I never let her know that in a way that she would understand and appreciate it - and all this time later she still seems to not know. Maybe when I'm dead and gone she will find my writings about it and understand.

*sigh*

I want so badly to meet you. You crack me up.

I think moms are supposed to be like that. Its their way of making us stronger, and getting us ready for the world or whatever :p
Either that, or they're just taking it out on us, because their mom did it to them, lol.

^ my personal analysis.

I have thought alot about family members relationship, I believe that what is most important is to understand that on Doomsday, there will be no importance in family ties, each soul will fight for its survival and safety, thus the best is to find some kind of compromise, like the minimum relationship that would create les problems...still tryin that
Sorry I forgot to say I am not a girl, there surely might be differences..

You're close to 19 and not married. You are becoming a burden to your family. Why is it you haven't been married off to a cousin and started a family yet? Your worth is in your ability to get pregnant and bear children. Perhaps when you do this your mother will find favor in you.

I am 19, George. Not close to it.

PS. You're so barbaric and sexy. Marry me, for only when I am your slave will I be worthy of walking this earth.

curious george said...

I have a lovely white camel I will trade for you. Then I will add you to my harem in tent city and feed you chocolate. You can then have 10 of my children and nag me to death. Work for you?

Curious George girls in real life don't find the pimples on your face sexy, or that extra roll or two on your stomach attractive enough? You have to play Mr.Superior online? I feel sorry for you, are you going to pine over this and think of a witty reply about how suave you are in real life?

suave is a shampoo.

Thanks for that interesting tidbit! lol

Duh said...

Curious George is superior online? I thought living in Saudi Arabia you'd be used to men being superior to you. Why should men give up their position as lord master online when they rule the Middle East always?

Anonymous said...

So because a woman is Arab she should be stepped on by all men due to the pathetic situation going on with womens' rights in Saudi? Why do I bother?

Anonymous said...

It isn't because you are Arab that you are stepped on, it is because you are a woman. Islam decrees that you are worth only half a man. The prophet Muhammed (PBUH) was most wise in knowing this.

Don't talk to me as if I'm Muslim, we were talking about Arabs and not Islam. I don't know much about Islam, so I can't discuss it with you, seems that you're not too knowledgable about it as well.

salam said...

If you are Arab and not Muslim then you should know that Muslims don't like Arab. Salam.

Wow. I got a shout out. Yay. cool.

I'm going to quote a poem. (It's long but the shout out makes me confident ;-)

This Be The Verse

They fuck you up, your mum and dad.
They may not mean to, but they do.
They fill you with the faults they had
And add some extra, just for you.

But they were fucked up in their turn
By fools in old-style hats and coats,
Who half the time were soppy-stern
And half at one another's throats.

Man hands on misery to man.
It deepens like a coastal shelf.
Get out as early as you can,
And don't have any kids yourself.
--Philip Larkin

I think you're taking the wrong message from that...
