Relationships long or short they all take the same route i.e., giddiness,infatuation, mad passion,deep respect,esteem, friendship.
Some love stories do not follow quite in the same order, some die immediately after infatuation, some may go up to mad passion, then if one is lucky it might hit the deep respect stage.
Esteem and friendship I know not how they fit into this picture. I know what fits, hatred and disgusting.
Friendship I’ve heard when the couple is no longer married, they become friends, of course for the sake of the children. Who am I to criticize this phase it depends entirely on the couple.
Mine didn’t go through infatuation, giddiness, or mad passion, because it was arranged. We had respect for each other and we did fine, there was no unnecessary quarreling like little kids. We understood each other and did not complain about anything. My husband did his job and I did mine. We discussed when we wanted to buy a house, whether it was suitable for us, if we liked it we bought it. Our first house was a bungalow it was well-built and we loved it. When it was time to sell it we did,because we were leaving the town.
The house that I’m in now is our second house we bought. It’s comfortable, we have good friendly neighbors,everything we need is close by, we are doing fine.
I’ve read and heard in the past that nothing is impossible. Since this is before breakfast, the first meal after a long fasting of the whole night. It can be impossible to perform tasks that involve my brain.
Having admitted this I must congratulate me because I finished my morning prayer which takes twenty-six minutes before breakfast. For this one excuses are not going to cut it,my clock reminds me it’s prayer time, I must complete it before sunrise or I don’t get any credit. Why must I look for credit only because during the day I may have been actively gossiping about someone who is probably not even on this planet to defend himself or/herself or some old classmate or colleague who gave me a hard time while I was studying or working with them.
Then there is the odd shop owner who sold me a defective product and refused to take it back, or the gatekeeper at the mosque who snatched my water bottle,thinking everyone who visits that place is some kind of a terrorist. Imagine taking the trouble to go for pilgrimage and harassed by some doorman trying to show off his fluency in Arabic. Do I care I don’t even understand the language, does he think he told me off ,no I’m sad to let him no, his screaming words were a bunch of rubbish which I didn’t comprehend.
Then there is the postal fellows who don’t know the difference between forward and send back to the owner.You come across so many inefficient and good for nothing people you can’t help but talk about it until the cows come home.
If you count you’ll see there are many humans spoiling my days and nights,if I talk about them it’s gossip and it is a sin my Mom told me. So I have to spend twenty-six minutes to pray before breakfast, otherwise my chances of being forgiven is a Big Zero.
What is impossible to complete before breakfast you ask?
1. writing the daily prompt.
2.writing a story.
3. doing my exercise.
4. reading my book which is saying “read me you have me for months.”
5. writing a question for the on-line course.
6.All of the above.
