A not-so-stiff upper lip!
Meanwhile in a parallel world not too far away, others who have passed the seven year mark have acquired a look, a special kind of look, an annoying mixture of arrogance, jadedness, know-it-all attitude and a hint (or two) of neurosis with a questionable and supposedly dry sense of humour.
- When you catch yourself trying to sound posh! Might be a good start to try to sound English first then upgrade.
- When you always roll your eyes and know when it’s coming “I have been to Tunisia and Morocco but never Algeria”
- When someone says your name wrong and you can’t bring yourself to correct them, so forevermore you will be known as Rhonda!
- When you make every effort not to look Algerian (yeah you know who you are)
- When somebody says you look Italian and you say “Ohh thank you”
- When you feel inadequate because you only speak 3 languages
- When you pride yourself in how few Algerian friends you have
- When you are disgraced by people who pour hot water over couscous to cook it
- When you hold back the tears after your haircut, but smile and say you love it
- When you insist on giving directions to anyone who asked rather than admit you just don’t know
Dz-chick…Dz-Brit with a proven track record ;)
