Rien d'especial.. relax, kick back & feel at ease *^_^*
Yeah so I was asked to show up at work on a Friday to translate French, it's not worth mentioning but I have been out with my friends all night till pretty late, so I did not have enough sleep, I still am cranky to tell you the truth, so anyways, I show up & there they were, walla cute too =P at least one of them was, first thing I say:
Me(in French): I am here to translate, but you'll have to speak real slow it's been years since I last spoke or even heard French..
Monsieur Fabris: but you don't seem to have a problem you sound perfect.
Me(in English): ah (happy (make that real happy) face) I love you =~}
now I like them...
& it went .. well.. okay.. not perfect... ... what!! I don't know technical terms! but still it turned out just fine, so my boss suddenly comes up with this fab idea:
Bossy: Sponts, why don't you take the guys on a tour to know more about Kuwait (since it's related to why they're here) & since you happen to be the (one &) only who speaks French, arrange with them what time & all, have fun.
I looked a little like this, Me:.. ... b.. but shisma.. yeah fine okay...
I really wanted to go rest a little, ah well..
Next day went pretty fine, they gave me Valentine's chocolate from paris, my love is official, of course it was, they touched me where it counts!
We went to Kuwait Towers, it's been ages since I last went there, I got a weird tingly feeling.. I mean really, last time I was there I was a kid, I was with one happy family, I was indifferent, I was innocent, I was pure, little did I know.. & now I go there, to the same place where once was a place of a happy gather, becomes now alone & full of issues <-- ha ha
My friend told me that the towers were a gift from Yugoslavia, I didn't know that, I thought it was Japan.. "Yugoslavy?" the French asked, "how come Yugoslavy would give away a thing like that & not have any themselves!?" I didn't have an asnwer to that one, "why did Yuguslafy give you these towers?" they asked, I was like "why did you give the states the statue of librty?" they were like "oh okay".. they understood how it was I guess, but I knew they were built on March 1979, I know cause it's my cousin's birthday =}
so they had the funniest questions, about anything & everything, things we may take for granted, maybe that's why I enjoyed their company.
They told me they googled Kuwait since they've never been there & were really worried about coming, since it's close to Iran, Iraq & Lebanon, they were unlucky that google showed them a part that has broken tanks in it, what was that all about?! I didn't know we still have those since the invasion! & how can google show them! & why! bohoo google!
I took them to marina mall to get some books from Virgin about Kuwait ma Kuwait, which sucked big time! no books! okay I knew the censorship was whipping Virgin's ass, but what's up with everything else?! we went to other places & found really good books, big bohooo Virgin.
We went for Lebanese lunch since they felt like something light & Arabian, o ana I suck when it comes to food, am not that creative in that area, so Lebanese food to me count as top, I love tabooleh man, makes me happy.. we forget work completely & start talking about family & stuff, it was fun, one of them has the cutest kid ever, I may not be a mother but I do have a kid, my cousin just gave birth to her.. what! you expect me to do that?! non merci! I pass.
Yeah so it was pretty cool :) now I have to go sleep, been a long weekend + day
lots of hugs to the ones I love, WhiteWing, missing you dearly & truly, bel salama :)
