A First at Twenty-Two



I am doing my commenting as I write this!
I've had a very...weird weekend. And none of it was planned.

Thursday morning I wake up at 10, and my father was getting ready to go get some paper work done (we got a new car) so I join him in hopes of renewing my passport..which I ended up not doing but oh well.

We head towards the citadel then my dad suddenly decides he wants me to drop him off and go meet his cousin, her fiance and a couple of their friends alone. So I do it, willingly...

I take them to Ibn Tulun, and they are very nice people!! The last time I'd seen my dad's cousin was about 10 years ago- if not more! After that we head to Khan Khalili, my dad joins us...then leaves me, again, behind. But I enjoyed it a lot!!

After they finish their shopping I offer to drop them off in Maadi and I was invited to join then for Christmas dinner. I spend the evening with my dad's cousins, their sons and friends..I loved it!! This means I have 4 cousins added to my extended family!

As I was getting ready to leave, my cousin asks if I can drop him off at another cousin's place, and I do, he gives me his number and leaves...3 minutes later I call him "please come to the side street...now" and I am shaking! I am shaking so hard...I didn't know what to think or how to react...I crashed into a guy on a scooter- head on...

It was ugly. My first accident...



And people were gathering...all against me. I was wrong, but so was he- the guy on the scooter. He's fine. It was a long, long night. But I made friends with my cousins.  The next day they call me up to check up on me...and my head is all confused. I still am confused. And I am begging for my clarity. (boyfriend was there for me...)

Thank you all for your comments...I really, really, really appreciate them! I promise. I know you care. I want you to know that I care too!

That is so scary! I'm sorry, I hope you're fine. My mother has been in a car accident recently as well and I can sense the confusion and probably minor aches you're going through. Warm wishes will be sent to you promptly!

Sara,

Thank God, or whomever you pray to, that you're okay. I've been in car accidents throughout my life (the worse was April of last year in which I could have been killed) so I know exactly how shaken up, disoriented and scared you are. It isn't a good feeling is it?

But I'm glad you and the guy on the scooter are okay. I was at fault in my accident last year so I understand how bad you feel, but please try to put it behind you and focus on getting better. There's too much on your mind right now to be blaming yourself. We all make mistakes.

And yes I'm glad you know we care. :)

Your day's events were quite interesting. I appreciate you including links, I always click on them to learn more. Your city and culture fascinate me. Not having much exposure to Cairo, Khan Khalili is more the way I've always pictured the city (although I know this is certainly not the case). The Maadi Grand Mall looks amazing.

Anyway, I'm glad you're okay. The world can't afford to lose people like you.

Car accidents are so scary. I had one due to the roads being wet over the summer and I thought I had killed my baby sister. I'm glad you're okay.
