Bocra, Fil Mish-mish


Bocra, fill mish-mish means tomorrow at apricot time. It's a way Egyptians say "Yeah, that's gonna happen." *snort*

I thought of it today as we waited for the plumber. He didn't show. Last week, we waited for the A/C guy ('cause, naturally, all the freon leaked out of my less-than-a-year-old unit). That guy eventually showed up -- three days late -- repaired a pipe, and left a hole around it so I see sky through the wall now. He said he'd be back to fix that, too. Uh-huh.

Yup, there's definitely a different sense of time here, a certain surfer-dude 'whatever' mentality. I wonder if it's all the sun? Maybe it really fries brain cells. Just in case, I'll stay in here, at the computer, and just look at the sun through my new little hole...
