Theme Thursday: Because We Have Always Been Eating

     It is always about appearances, and sometimes nothing but appearances. We so perfectly carry on with our rituals, without a care in the world why. We always did that, that’s why. Yes that’s why. And maybe some other day –a day that has long sunk into the waves of time leaving those traces that we blindly follow - things actually had a reason.
      Your spoon is dug deep into your plate and you then move it to your mouth, swallow and have another spoonful. And I cannot help wondering, do you even know what you are drinking? But you are drinking it, because every Thursday for the past twelve years, you have always drunk it. Both of our lips move and our throats rumble because some vocal cords seem to be vibrating in there. People always talk while having their lunch, but I reckon that somewhere, we forgot the words and we drone on in our cacophony. As you sit there across the table, I marvel at the face of that stranger that you’ve become. Since when do you wear glasses? And what colour is your eyes? Oh wait…there’s a much better question: Why are we married? I know the answer of that one, simply because we have always been married.

Allie gave me the Honest Scrap Award
Now I should say ten things about myself.
1-I hate school (naturally)
2-I don't like being around people.
3-I hate doing something without knowing why
4-I've been drinking Coffee since i was ten.
5-I hate shopping.
6- Okay, so enough with the things that I hate, now I have to figure out something that I actually like. I like....Science Fiction and Dystopian Fiction!
7-I love the sea in the night when everyone is asleep.
8-I have never travelled outside Egypt.
9-I have a proclivity towards frugality. Don't get it wrong, I just hate wasting money on stuff that are not worth it-aka not books.
10-I am done and that tells about me that I have nothing else to say.
Okay so now, I'll pass this award to six super-awesome bloggers:
