I answered because I was worried where he’d be, and I needed to hear the background noise just to make sure I won’t get any nasty surprises on my way to the work event I have been planning all month!
Him: Aiwaa ezzayek?
Me: (did I hear cheerfulness?!! Ostor ya rab) is there anything you want?
Him: I was in maadi earlier today
Me: (please God tell me he left, he said earlier, I am safe!) so!!
Him: I had a job interview, and after I finished I passed by a lot of places where we used to hang out and have fun
Me: you’re calling me to tell me that?!!! (wheeew, now I can breathe)
Me: ok, let me tell you this: next time you feel nostalgic, don’t come and walk the streets of maadi
Me: you can try walking the streets of mohandeseen around your old work, or you know, the streets of haram… (this is where he used to hang out with her)
Him: ya sheikha da rabena beysame7…
Me: rabena kebeer, and btw I think w’Allaho a3lam, rabena beysame7 elly ebeyndam we ye7awel yessala7 ghalato… so clear your act if it’s forgiveness you want, but don’ give me the whole second chances crap
Him: is that all you have to say to me?
Me: yeah, well, whatever I say really, you only hear what you wanna hear… like for example, I like answering you because I get to tell you all the shit I have in mind and I can hang up and continue being the pleasant person you no longer get to see, this is my fun… I don’t know why you call though!!
Him: because I am your husband, don’t you think you have any moral obligation towards me?
Me: no! not really! Should I??? for all I care you’re someone I would rather have nothing to do with, and it’s only a matter of time… ana ha2fel ba2a 3ashan mesh fadyalak… ya rab tekoon akhadt gor3et el ghatata beta3tak for the day *hung up*
My event was a blast; it went smooth and thank God he did not pull any stunts.
