excerpts from Glasgow
Alaa: Imagine ya haitham if we were here on our 1st year of marriage , w/o kids!
me: 2 sighs,the 1st an internal one
Arab friend 1:.. but they keep sending us these letters saying they might come for an inspection any time , just to check
Arab friend 2: don`t u worry, just don`t open up yr door IF they show up, and ask yr family to do the same.
if anything happens just say that u don`t know how to read English that well and never thought u needed a license for watching TV.
me: *silently listening*
this convo occurred just after the Prayers, outside the mosque.
Arab friend 1 = about 1 year in Scotland
Arab friend 2 = +10 years in Scotland and has a UK passport
Alaa *texts*: Anas has just made his very 1st steps
me: great! How soon can he move out!
