The day Bu Tootee entered what looks like a Far3iya by Mistake!

lost

Last week Bu Tootee was invited to a wedding…

 

The groom is one of his college friends. He is a sweet guy who called Bu tootee several time personally to invite him. The thing is about his wedding, is that it is a pure Bedouin Wedding.

 

& the thing about bedouin weddings is they are usually held far away and that they start late. Also, since the hosts are so generous, it is unheard of to leave before you had your dinner. So if you go early, you cannot leave until enough people have been gathered and dinner is served. Once, a friend of my husbands attended a wedding where dinner was served at midnight o they were not allowed to leave beforehand!!!

 

Anyways…

 

Bu Tootee allah yesalmah asked where the wedding was. It was in Salat Afra7 in El Reqa

 

So he prays at home, drives to the Reqa, enters the area, and starts circling around looking for the wedding venue… and he couldn’t find it anywhere…

 

He searches and searches until finally he finds one… he parks, goes out, and enters the hall…

 

He is met by a group of men heading towards the center of the hall, in the center there are three very old men wearing their beshts and holding long canes (3asayat)… when the men arrive to those elders, they say “masak allah bel khair” only or something equivelant… nothing like “congratulations”… and the groom is no where to be found!!!

 

He says hello, the elder men are bewildered to see him. They say hello, he did not see the groom so he thinks to himself  “he must be praying”… and he goes and finds a seat near the three men.

 

Now the hall is silent. Every one is watching him. He is watching them back. The three elders stare intently at him and at the same time, all three are knocking their canes to the floor… you know the gesture? When they slam it in a certain rhythm to the floor?? Tak… Tak… Tak…

 

They do not take their eyes off him… Tak … Tak… Tak… He calls the groom, no answer… Tak… Tak… Tak… he sms’s the groom “Wainik! Why aren’t u in ur wedding?”… Tak… Tak… Tak… Still no one around him is talking, all are silent and staring intently at him… Tak… Tak… Tak… he finally thinks to him self that he might have made a mistake?!?!?!?!? If so, what is he sitting in now exactly??? Tak… Tak… Tak….

 

A young man comes and sits next to him and looks at him… Tak… Tak… Tak… the atmosphere is thick with anticipation and dread -from his side of course-… Tak… Tak… Tak… Bu Tootee casually asks the man “Why don’t they name this hall in the name of the Area? There is no name for it?”… Tak… Tak… Tak…

 

The man replies “It is named after the area… it is named after Area -insert area name cause i don’t remember it-“….

 

Bu Tootee realizes that in his search for the Wedding Hall, he ventured out of the Reqqa and entered another area!!!!!!! and he has stumbled upon some sort of gathering where he is currently unwelcome and every one are very very tense for his presence… tak… tak… tak…

 

He is 6b3an scared now… taw il nass!!! Tak… Tak… Tak… and realizes the whole time while he was calling and smsing the groom they must have thought he was trying to contact someone equally unwelcome!!!! Tak… Tak… Tak… He pretends he had recieved a phone call, says “hello? i can’t hear u? Wait a moment so i can get a better reception” … and he flies out of the hall… almost running to his car, starts it hastily, and drives away!!!!

 

He managed to attend the wedding and the dinner was at 10 pm by the way…

 

and we think, well, every one who heard the story anyways… think he had stumbled into a far3ya and they thought he was sent to investigate and report them, hence the elderly’s anger and the hostile, silent atomsphere!!!! Zain Ma in6ag!!!

 

What do u think?!?!?!?

  5. lol, it MUST be a far3iya !!!

    i’m just imagining the groom reading the sms messages sent from bu totee and thinking what the hell is wrong with this guy? not knowing that he’s stuck with suspicious men who think he’s from the maba7ith.

    or maybe they were gathered to watch DHW but they were embarrased to watch it infront of bu totee

    no one will ever know the story behind this incident

    That is hilarious! Maskeen…it sounds like something I would do.

    Once, I accidentally got out on the wrong floor of an office building, and ended up waiting at the company reception for fifteen minutes while they tried tracking down someone who in the end didnt even work for them.

    He worked for the company one floor up :p That’s what happens when I get distracted on elevators :p
