The All-Star Arab perception

May 5, 2010

It used to annoy me, but I’ve found that if I shut up and nod my head- the comments/ observations eventually disappear.

I’m talkin about the way Arabs perceive things.

—–

Apparently I have these dark circles under my eyes, and my face looks puffy.

The Arab interpretation: She’s in love. She was crying.

Mine: I’m always online.

So I wore tights and a long top at a gathering to hide my flab. 

The Arab interpretation: She’s in love. She’s losing weight.

Mine: I’ve gained 10 kilo’s. But thankyou.

—–

I wake up at 6, talk to make money, and at 23:00- I’ve run outta words.

The Arab interpretation: She’s in love. She’s thinking about him. She’s quiet.

Mine: I am exhausted. WALLAHI!

—–

I’ve dropped some sugar on the tray whilst adding sugar to their tea.

The Arab interpretation: She’s in love. Her hands are trembling.

Mine: It’s 00:16.

If only things were this simple…

    Correction: SHE IS IN LOVE WITH AN ARAB.

    Haha. So true, though. I find the double standards funny. If you’re NOT in love, something’s wrong with you. If you ARE in love, something’s still wrong with you. You know?
