You Asked for it!


I couldn't resist taking a shot of this lovely sock of my friend using HER mobile camera, SENT to me by HER through email, with the subject line: "You Can Blackmail Me if You Want!"

So here it is dear friend, you asked for it :P


A young man gave this little book (click) to my 3 year old nephew at a cafe today. He told him to read it when he grows up. This book comes in a small box and since I was standing behind my nephew, I only spotted a white box and the guy getting something out of it. I thought he was giving him a cigarette and asked: "What is it? Don't spoil him!"

Thank God he was a nice guy and explained that it was just a book and that there's no harm in it, asked about his name and wished him the best.

I just stood there without a word. I didn't even say sorry min el fashla. So, whoever you are, incase you're reading this, sorry!

When I got home, I started reading this book which I've seen many times at different bookshops but never dared to buy since I am always in denial about my age. So this time it was in my hands, and so I read.

It's a funny book about aging. There are jokes about being 50, 40, and many about being 30!
Now I feel insulted. 30 is middle age?!

Aham shay is that the feeling of guilt towards this guy is over. Now we're even.

"The first sign in growing old is needing a pair of glasses which reveals the second and third signs, the first wrinkle and the first white hair. The forth sign is the thirtieth birthday." Agnes Ring. Age 15
