we’ve been comparing…

In the last few days Habibi and I have been comparing relationships…ours and those that we see around us. He is visiting family at the moment, so he is kind of in a culture shock…poor thing!

His latest is about a second cousin of his who by all accounts is clueless! I’m not the one saying this, Habibi is…

Says to me “You know, he calls me in the middle of the night to ask me, no demand that I take him to the airport to get his son who is coming; -its because he is demanding that his son father a child pronto!”

I am waiting for the other shoe to drop…

“And to top it all off the son is as clueless as he is; because after I am up and showered dressed with keys in hand; the father calls me and says forget it, his son is stuck in London and doesn’t know when his flight is leaving!”

I roll my eyes; here we go again…

“What- don’t they know how to get from point A to point B!!”

I hear him getting agitated…you see he’s been Americanized and doesn’t realize it yet, so I offer “Well Habibi, you know his son is too young to be married, too young to get his act together and hasn’t had enough schooling to get it together.”

I hear Habibi sigh on the other end of the line, “I miss you, you know…you would have turned off the phone before I went to sleep; therefore avoiding this stupid situation…I would’nt have lost sleep over it.”

I smile, ah, I guess certain things are sinking in…Alhamdulillah!
