ever been in a stituation where you thought you heard something but it turns out you miss heard what the person said?
you see i seem to make a habit of miss-hearing people but i blame it on peoples pronounciation, although my friends will say otherwise but dont listen to them :)
the other day i was chatting to my mums friend, she is one funky dudette, she is one of those mothers friends who you can have a laugh with, see mothers tend to have different types of friends, some are of the type who speak down to you, extremley patronising and will not be convinced that your capable of doing anything on your own, i.e treat you like your still 3.
other types are the kind that speak to you or give you some sort of attention when they need something from you, other than that they wont blink an eye lid at you. then you have the second mother, and then some are the funky variaty, the whole been there done that and permenantly wore the t-shirt, the type you could seriously enjoy yourself with.
so i was having a general chit chat with her, talking about the wedding we went to, her taking the mick about me falling, then we started talking about what we wore, she was asking where i had bought my dress, she then asked my opinion of what she wore, to which i replied 'mashallah, tala3ti zay il ghazalah' - you looked lovely mashallah.
she smilled and then i thought she said 'mitakda matla3tish zay il feelah' - you sure i didnt look like an elephant'
her facial expression alerted me to the fact that i had said something she wasnt expecting and before i could ask she said: 'feelah? feelah? anee magiltash feelah'
oh my god some body ask the earth to swallow me whole please, what do you say...
all i could say was 'sam7eenee khwelah, shin giltee?' -pardon me aunty, what did you say?'
to which she replied 'giltlick libsee makanish ikhee' - i said my dress wasnt horrible?
??????????? where in the world did i hear elephant???????
she then said ' mala can fe balak feelah lama shiftinee' - well then you must have thought elephant when you saw me.
to which i kept muttering on about how that wasnt true and she looked amazing, and how just the other day i mentionedto my mum how she had looked really nice.
but i dont think she was convinced :(
saying that though she did laugh and poke fun at me to my utter embarrasment. why do these things always happen looooool
