Almost An Insult

| Related | February 27, 2015

(After a long time I finally decided to go back to Kuwait to visit my family.)

Dad: “So, what did my angel bring for me?” *going through my suitcase*

Me: “Relax, Dad, I’m not running away. I brought gifts for each one of you. Just let me freshen up.”

Older Sister: “Oh, oh! I hope you brought something pretty for me!”

Second Sister: *to me* “Even if you die you wouldn’t be missed that much, you know. You’ve been away for five years. It’s just like you’re almost dead for us.”

(Everybody stops dead in their tracks and are looking at each other awkwardly with the look of disbelief.)

Second Sister: “I said ‘almost.'”
