I Have A Black Eye
April 11, 2009
In my last post, I told you how I posted a picture of myself without my niqab (face veil) on facebook (only females except for a few male family members…my brother, nephew, and lil cousin). I said that it was to let them see that I didn’t have a black eye…you know people think all Muslim women are abused. Well the other day I had a freak accident (or was it?). I was answering the telephone and knocked myself silly on the bone, with the reciever, that surrounds the eye socket. It started off as a small bruise but is now sort of a black eye. Freak accident? Coincidence? Or did somebody give me the ayn (evil eye)?
For the record, I should have put “beauty” in Quotation Marks, because I was saying it in a “quote/unquote” type of way. It was not to be taken serious and I was no way trying to make myself out to be some super model…ha I laugh at that.
I am an almost 40 year old mother of 4 – invisible to to half of mankind, while cloaked in all black from head to toe, had my last child and did myself a favor by losing some weight…allow me to amuse myself sometimes…aight?
Arrogant I am not. I’m not conceited…I’m convinced…just kidding…but seriously…if you know me then you know I was just having some fun with the topic because my husband thinks he’s a know it all…that’s what I thought was so funny…
Susanne got it!
…and what is with this mid life crisis nonsense? This is the second time a commentor suggested I am having a mid life crisis.
People to to chill…
