on my way to work this morning i was approached by a beggar kid (there's been a significant increase in them recently, maybe it's a government policy or something) and all of them automatically go for the young dude in a suit
he passed by me and turned around to follow me, saying the usual stuff (got some spare change? type sayings), what almost stopped me in my tracks was hearing him say (ya rab te7eb) which translates to i hope you fall in love
my first instinct was to go "oh yeah!!! well i hope you fall in love too!!!"
cuz when u think of it, is that really a good thing to wish upon the unsuspecting good doer?
I mean how many times have you fallen in love? and out of all those times how many times did it turn out to be "the one"? see footnote (1)
oh by the way are you still with that one? or did u do something to push him away ( i say him cuz i came to terms with the fact that all of you reading this post are female - with the exception of mando) Is he still out there searching or perhaps even enjoying life with HIS one?
The problem is we have been led to believe that there is a one out there for all of us, hollywood standards, happy endings, AND we began expecting to find them in real life, which let's face it even hollywood itself stopped doing (the breakup for example)
p.s. actually i LOVE my female readers, came to terms is an understatement. i love everything female but u probably knew that
(1) "the one" is a ficticious character blown out of proportion by different forms of media, he is sometimes reffered to as a hero in old tales (rumor has it he lived a long time ago in old syria but these rumors were never verified) in other versions of the tale he is rumored to return at the end of life on this earth.
