Snippets of My Friday.

So I was at this ghetto store because I don't know why. throughout the store I hear this girly woman's voice going, "Honey!? Honey, do you like these, shoes, Honey? Oh, my Gawd they're gorgeous, Honey. Honey, where are you, Honey? Honey, Oh! Look at this, Honey! I love these, what do you think, Honey?" I never heard so many "Honey"s in my entire life. So obviously I have to turn and look at the woman. She glances over at me and comes over and says, "Asalaam Alaikum".. And then she tells me that she's learning about Islam. She was a Catholic and married her husband, who is Muslim. I couldn't properly get a word in, but then she shyly aded that she says "Asalaam Alaikum" when she sees Muslims because it makes her feel good and that people thinks she's nerdy for it. Then I think she got a litle too shy and went away before I could say anything. She was a cutie pie in the sky. I like people who say hi for no reason. I know people, Muslims and NonMuslims alike just kind of look at you if you say Hi, or the Muslim greeting. I guess to some the Honeys may be annoying, but at least she loves her Husband enough to call him Honey 2 times a sentence. awwwww.

Then in the next aisle this woman is talking to someone on the phone. I don't eavesdrop but she was loud. She was talking about how someone she knows is gtting out of jail today and she's scared. Or something. I don't think it's a highlight. More like randomly scary.

Then I went to the masjid {Muslim place of worship. Masjid in Arabic, mosque in English} and met a convert to Islam. That was pretty exciting. The good thing is that her family accepted her conversion and there's no drama between them. {side note to CC: Is this the same girl you were supposed to meet up with yesterday?}

And just now I heard my five year old sister yelling to my brother, "You're ruining my whole life, you know!?"

haha. ur sister is funny...

And I like it when ppl say hello to me too, or at least smile. sometimes i smile at ppl as i walk by and they dont even acknowledge it or just scowl back.

This was great!

Hey, I wanted to tease you a little... and let you know that I always try and guess which author is writing a post when I'm reading it... you know, see if I can guess it right. I always know you because you're usually the only one with typos. I mean that in the greatest way!!! It's nothing on you, just my narcissism of grammar and typos.. I do it to everyone and they all tease me when I have a typo. Don't hate me, I love your posts!

lol. I don't mind and take no offense. I am a horrible typist and don't bother with spelling anf grammar. Maybe I should run a spell check from now on. I never bothered learning proper typing and am infamous for my typos. :) And I'm too lazy to fix them when I see them.

i also like it when strangers randomly say hi. it's a nice connection to make between people. it starts to get annoying when some people try to follow it up with a 15 min. conversation. especially when i'm running late, and i'm at the grocery store on a crowded saturday afternoon. not that this has ever happened to me or anything.
