Was browsing through facebook...stalking really, what else is there to do on a Saturday in Ramadan! what did I do before? I can't remember!
Wondered why it is that girls and boys in Algeria hold different souvenirs of home, like we didn't live the same lives (yes same - socialism remember!), as if we didn't go to the same schools and beaches and went through the same war, or maybe our souvenirs are similar but not the same;
Then it hit me, girls and boys do live the same events, it's just the view or perhaps more appropriately, the viewing platform is what differs, boys whiteness it from the street, up and close whilst the girls view it perched up on the balconies and windows! sequestrated behind shutters, "sheltered" behind doors and veils.
A friend of mine in Algeria, used and still gets revolted by the fact she couldn't leave the house after a certain time of the evening, if she craved a Coke, she'll have no way of getting it, she'll have to lump it and swallow it, but she remarked that had her brother craved a Coke, he'd up and go an any time and get himself one! Who said girls can't go out after dark? who started this unwritten LAW! This very same law that makes my nostalgia diffident from my brothers'.
To be continued....I am hungry now!
Dz-chick...Ramadan and nostalgia don't mix well!*
*but I am fine, honest, I am fiiiiine

And I am also stopping the diaries! The end!
"Nostalgia is a woman" that is beautiful, I love how you gendered it :)ReplyDelete
Dz Chick, quit fasting if you must but you can't stop the diaries. You've been delivering for years, snap out of it & grab something to eat. Saha ftourek & in goes the bourek!ReplyDelete
Anonymous yes she's a chick! she's a dz Chick even!ReplyDelete
Miss Polemique Yeah alright!
"And I am also stopping the diaries!"ReplyDelete
Moody baby :(
polemix - write you own diaries innit bludReplyDelete
Homo Erectus ha ha c'est tellement vraiReplyDelete
MoWris (who strangely writes exactly like Dawood), I don't fast so a Ramadan diary would be pointless!ReplyDelete
MoWris / Davood woteva, brudders from oder modaz, u know what am sayin (actualle you probabley don't). so if it pointless for you it would be pointless for her if she ain't fasting as well innit?ReplyDelete
Lol MoWris why wouldn't I understand 'brudders from oder modaz'?! It should be brothers from another mother but who cares! As it happens you probably are from the same moda fam! You are quite schizo with this Dawood/MoWris identity & that's without counting the real you! It's oddly endearing but get it sorted man!!ReplyDelete
Lol you got me there bro. call me later we's gotta talk business.ReplyDelete
Are you trying to trick me MoWris?! Why dont you call me instead? Anytime dude!ReplyDelete
you said you are dawood right? i got his number but got no credit.ReplyDelete
You like playing games MoWris aka Dawood aka......who does credit nowadays?! Lol call me from your business phone ;-)ReplyDelete

No darling YOU call me!! You want me, you know where to find me!ReplyDelete
