Converation with Dad
This post was writtn by the lebanese blogger JIJ. We took his permission to post it here.
Me: Hi dad.
Dad: Hi son. How are you?
Me: Good… Did they just hit Manara?
Dad: Yeah, half an hour ago.
Me: That’s five minutes from home
Dad: Yeah, more or less
Me: That’s bad
Dad: It’s ok… I was walking there early in the morning
Me: You were walking there?
Me: Ok… So how is everything?
Dad: Good. We’re watching TV all day long. They’re reporting massive resignations from the Democratic Left after the Israeli ambassador quoted Atallah
We both laugh
Dad: You didn’t hear Nasrallah’s speech yesterday, did you?
Me: No, but I read it later
Dad: You should have seen it. You know, when he asked people to look at the seaside and watch the Israeli ship sinking?
Dad: I could hear shouts of victory from many houses in the neighborhood. It was like some movie.
Dad: Did you start eating the food you brought back?
Me: Yeah. I did. Where’s mom?
Dad: She’s taking a walk in AUB.
I think of protesting, but I don’t.
Me: Well, ok. Tell her I said hi.Dad: Sure son.
Me: Ok I’ll go now.
Me: Can you not walk on the corniche tomorrow morning?
Dad: Yeah, ok. We'll see.
Me: Ok, I'll call tomorrow, bye
Long live Lebanon.
