He is always expecting me to make him a nice meal while he doesn’t even pay the bills on time

It is Ayaan’s wedding tomorrow and I don’t have a new dirac, I have to borrow one from Asli. I wonder how things have developed with that loser husband of hers.

I hope this Hassan Gurguurte guy brings real change and stability so we can soon go back home, one more winter and I will lose it.
She came in late last night, that is the 3rd time this week! I have to have a word with her. She will bring shame on the family name if the neighbours learn she came back home at 8pm.

Controlling a monkey brain is bad enough, now try praying in a language you don’t understand…5 times a day!
