A Day in Heaven

Full moon.. silky reflection on water

I went to chalet on Thursday night. The whether was perfect. It wasn't too cold, not too hot, a bit humid maybe but turned cool at night. While resting on the beach, big round full moon appeared in the sky out of no where. It was beautiful. And it's reflection over the calm sea was even more beautiful. It looked just like silk. One thing that ruined the setting was a car driving along the beach. Where I and the kids had to stay backwards each time it passed.
Late at night, I had a girly chat with my cousins about men right after watching Fawziya Durea's program. I announced my wish to marry a Muslim American. It is an old wish that I keep repeating whenever I get pissed off from stories I hear about Kuwaiti men. I wish for an American in particular because I know that when they convert to Islam they become more Muslims than us in mind and heart and I've seen many good examples. So since I am in Kuwait, my choice would be an American from the marines. My sister didn't like the idea and said that a lady who's married to one was complaining that they are rigid and stiff because of the harsh work life they lead.

too tired to walk on your feet?

The next morning, which is today Friday the whether was much more pleasant as the sun was blinded by passing clouds. It was my first day since last summer that I took a dip. But just before that, I was sitting inside having breakfast as two gorgeous bodies I mean guys were walking down the beach. To let you get a close picture one was Tom cruise look a like but more masculine and the other was young Tom Silik. I jumped out of my place and took the binoculars that were resting (ahem) very close to the window. Oh my God, Oh my God, Oh my God. Not only they were stunning but also were wearing black bikinis. Where the hell did they come from? Oh my God. I just prayed Friday prayer (yes I woke up late and had breakfast at lunch time), and I just had my wish last night, and here they are right in front of our chalet. I jumped and I yelled and I laughed with glee. "Sis come here take a look". "Yuck" is all what she said. Well you know, she is one of those who over look great bodies and concentrate on illegitimate material. "Yuck they are wearing bikinis!" Oh well never mind her. They are mine. They are mine. They are my dream come true; Two beautiful creatures at once, Yeeha.

It was time to go swimming. I swam and swam till everyone was gone and I was all alone struggling with water as it was high tide and I am not a good swimmer. So as I was practicing I glanced them coming back. So what was I to do except keep swimming and looking through my sun glasses. You know how they can become handy at times. Not indoors of course like what some people do. Anyway, so as they came closer and closer, and as there was no one swimming except me! As they approached both of them were excited and looking at me then they ran to my uncles chalet (he wasn't there and the shutters were closed) that I was swimming in front of. OH MY GOD OH MY GOD OH MY GOD am I dreaming or what? Is this really happening? I'm not wearing my medical glasses and the sun glasses I was wearing were unclear because of water drops. My eyes were burning out of salty water but nevertheless, it was real. Yes they sat there on the balcony! They had the courage to sit and lie there! At my uncles chalet! WOW! Ok, my alarm was on. What if my family saw me? I know I did nothing! I know I didn't invite them! I know I had nothing to do with it but somehow my last night's wish and my binoculars bay/guy watch made me feel guilty.

Maybe they heard me! Yes they did! This has never happened before! Why now? Why today? Yes, I surely had something to do with it. What would I tell my family? The scenario began running through my head. "Yes, I was just swimming and they passed by. They were tired so they wanted to rest". They would say "why here? Why when you're the only one swimming?". Then I'd say "maybe because I am the only girl they could watch swimming since all the rest of the girls are on their jet skies!" ok maybe this would come to my benefit and convince them to be less over protective and let me ride a jet ski.

Now back to the guys. They kept watching me. I felt like a swimmer showing off. I know I was just practicing and I was ashamed of the way I swam but if I stopped they would know I was being shy. And then I would do nothing except bathing alone.

My aunt came out of chalet and went towards my uncle's. OH MY GOD. I know her type. She says everything that's on her mind. What would she tell them? Please don't please don't, I pleaded while watching her pass them. Thank God she said nothing! Why did she pass there? I don't know! Maybe she liked them too?

They stayed for too long. I waited and waited for them to leave but they did not! No one was ever interested in me that much before. Tom cruise look alike I'm talking about here! I didn't want to stay too much in the sun although it was cloudy but I wanted to save my skin color. Now It was time for me to leave, sorry guys but I really have to leave, could you please turn your heads and NOT watch my tent? (my swim suit). I did not want to ruin the mind picture they had! Not a tent! No! The tent that everyone made fun of even our maids! My beauty I had to rescue, my skin I had to preserve from aging. So there I stood up and walked with courage. You know how women walk on bay watch? I did too, only wearing a tent. Well they are in Kuwait and they should expect that right? No way were they admiring me all that time without knowing I had a tent hiding beneath the water. I'm sure it showed from my strong swimming arms.

Now why when I just stood up and wanted to leave something made me stay? I couldn't leave destiny without making one. So I sat on the sand with my foot on the water. I didn't know that strong waves would practically hit me and move my body in a way I wouldn't want them to see. So as I was struggling with those waves and trying to sit still, I heard a loud voice saying something like woha yeeha, you know something like that. What? Are they applauding for me? They must be! Because I just sat on the beach! So as I turned my face towards them, they were both running to the water and swam like pros and vanished away. Yes they swam like pros, and I was the ugly duckling striving for her breath as I was playing a scene.

They really vanished in the sea. I couldn't see them walking by the beach, nor in the sea. They were either mad pros or angels sent from heaven to make my day then disappear!

I walked along the beach barefoot, scrubbed my foot and hand with sand. Then went to the back area of the chalet and lay under the sun rays coming out from between the clouds. I saw care bears and balloons. It felt so cool as water was evaporating from my tent. It was relaxing too.

Cloudy and cooooool sun

When I saw my sisters I asked them if they witnessed anything and to my shock they did not. They have seen nothing. I felt relieved that I had no explanation to tell as no one saw or knew anything. But this heavenly day; was it real? Were they real? Or were they just angels sent from heaven to make my day? Whatever they were, who ever they were, I send them my thanks. And please if you two happen to stumble upon my blog, give me a call (email me that is). Well I just want a pinch to know you guys were real.

I never enjoyed Kuwait like I did today. I love Kuwait.

ashwah you liked the post, 7assait enni wayid garagt when i saw how long the post looked.

a7la min Tom walla a7la. bas kan yabeeli cam at that time.

but if they happen to pass by (hopefully) next weekend, i'll take a shot from behind the window. but i don't think they would after seeing the tent.

yes half american is definitely a better combination; having half my blood. but what's interesting in 100% american is that when they convert to islam, they become better muslims than us.

hehehe well you know the tent called bikini islami? :P
