Looks like all that book learnin' paid off.

On the ride home tonight, I sat across the aisle from Dancing Queen. I saw that she was reading a book, but didn't pay much attention to what book. I looked over again, because, let's face it, I'm damn nosy. The writing was in Arabic script. At first and based on previous eavesdropped conversations, I thought she was faking it. Not wanting to disappoint you, I kept watching her. I think I am going out on a limb here and give her the benefit of the doubt. I think she might be able to read it for reals. She was at least turning the pages in the right direction and holding the book right side up.

It's a start.

Having the book right side up is always a good sign! :)

Now you need to learn to say "Hello" and "Why are you so annoying??" in Arabic.

Hey, yeah. I'll have to ask someone in my Middle Eastern Market how to say, "You're an idiot" in Arabic.
