You know when you have one of those days where you dont have enough time to just stop and breath. Tuesday was one of those days. Where at one point I was so tired and out of it that my brain was paused. I think it was paused because people were talking and I was looking and I felt like I was out of the room. After futoor I passed out for a little while even though I woke up I was still dazed. The one thing that made me really happy today was playing around with my nephew. He woke me up from my asleep after futoor by banging on the window so I woke up with the smile. And I think he know that his uncle is probably the only person who is goofy enough to entertain him.

I took him outside on the balcony for a little while and he was enjoying himself.  Just watching cars flying by, and motorcycles going back and forth. He was facinated by the sound of the motorcycle that woke him from his sleep. It was an off-road motorcycle that a guy was riding back and forth on the street. And he was keeping any eye out for anything making noise. I was watching the cars and watching him watch the cars! It was fun just standing outside like that.

Then after futoor didnt get much rest, I had to think about a lot of stuff that my family was asking me. And when you have to do a lot of things you just feel like the day has not ended yet. I got a call from my friend from the states when I drove out to Khalid Bin Waleed street in the city to pick up a new head set, because mine has reached its end. It seemed like he was on the other side of the world waiting for their time for iftar and he was having the same type of day. We just started laughing at ourselves. By the time the conversation was done, I already finished what I had to get and got home and he left work early to watch a movie before futoor. Its hard watching a movie without popcorn. What a day!

A guy who is just trying to enjoy life!


  1. gone are the days when all we had to worry about is being amused by the sound of motorbikes passing by. we’ve come a long way from being ur nephew’s age, to now being the adults who entertain and get bombarded with mind traffic! :/

  2. wow, that sounded too adult like!!! i retract my last comment and replace it with: sucks man. i hate those days! been having a week like that myself!

    yeah, much better!

  3. i liked the last line!
    how can u watch a movie without popcorn ;)

    the moment u shared with ur nephew seemed priceless to me
    i like watching kids, observing things around them. amazing!! how the little brain can function just like a spongue taking it alllll in :)

    anyways have a good day marzouq.

  4. watch a movie and eat popcorn .. that’s so cliché :PpP

  5. MSB: loool! that was philisophical in a funny way! hehhe! I like the second comment too, and what you said is very true.

    no3ik: thanks! My nephew is funny to me I got no problems taking him around places where he wants to go! hehehe!

    Laialy: but its the best thing to do! :)

  6. funny how tuesdays are always the worst days of the week and the busiest. piece of advice, dont nap after futoor, it is never enough, u dont wanna wake up!! u know futoor in the states is at 8:00, now thats gotta suck!

  7. Menon: lol

    Fonzy: I know what you mean, but sometimes you have no choice. Your just slowly shutting down, and you just need to get some rest. I like that furniture too, its from a UK store, but I wish it was a little bit more comfortable.

  8. tone it down a notch with all this work, you’re gonna age faster like this :P

  9. 1001: I wish it was that simple! hehehe! :) Sometimes you just need a break to breath! hehehe!
