When I go home to America, there are some phrases that I will miss from my time in the Middle East, some of which include: “As you like, as you like” and “I give you good price…very good price, special discount for you my friend…” and many others.
But the one that I will never forget, that I heard uttered by my beautiful host-mother, for other a month and a half was this: “You eat??? SIT! EAT! EAT!! YOU MUST EAT!!”
And we would sit.
And we would eat. Because we wouldn’t know how to do anything but that…
We love you Georgette.
