TP Or No TP- That Is The Question

TP or no TP- that is the question;

Whether ‘tis nobler in the mind to suffer
By braving soggy undies, by far it is tougher.
But that dread of something with which I take issue
The undiscover’d truth- thou art without tissue

Islam requires the washing of your bottom
But alas, no tissues! If I’d only brought’em!
To grunt and sweat under forceful nature’s effluence
Then wash with one’s hand is Saudis toileting preference

I am sicklied o’er the thought of just using
My lovely left hand, it na’er requires musing
This despis’d custom turns my expression awry.
If only TP to wipe, perchance to dry.

To refuse using tissue, methinks you’re not pious
The reality is, you’ve revealed your true bias.
Your claim that its use imitates the kuffar
Is completely unlike driving your western-made car.

Or your wife, beautied with a plast’ring art
Her and her Sephora must be pried apart?
And your children’s addiction to video-gaming
Is not due to the toilet paper you’re blaming.

Muslims can wipe, wash, and then dry their toosh
And it helps to prevent the dred’d yeasty bush
So if only to avoid your guests throwing a fit
Go buy some TP so our hands don’t touch s**t.

7 Weird and Random Facts About Daisy

1. I am one of the most noise sensitive people you might ever come across. This increases during pregnancy when ALL tv commercials must be muted so I don't go insane by their noise.
2. Speaking of pregnancy, I haven't been able to eat chicken since my 2nd pregnancy 8 years ago when my MIL cooked it everyday while I was having months of severe morning sickness.

3. Although I had no problem fibbing in my youth, I feel a pang in my chest if I even consider telling a lie now.

4. I inherited an extra tendon in my wrists from my mother and my daughter inherited double-jointed thumbs from me.

5. I am a borderline germaphobe. Sloshing my hands around in hot soapy water is almost a fetish.

6. I'm a closet-Trekkie. No conventions or action figures for me but I dream of owning ALL the Star Trek series starting from the original '60's series through to Enterprise.7. I can't watch movies a second time until enough time has gone by that I've forgotten most or all of it.

hmmmm...I tag you-

Domesticating Saudi Men Must Start Early

Someday, my future daughter-in-law will thank me for this.
Update: apparantly not everyone is able to view the pic of my sweet little 1 year old boy "cooking" in his sisters toy kitchen. Gotta love the internet here!

computer issues

So sorry folks, I swear I'm not ignoring you. I'm having some internet connection problems so that's why I'm not posting or responding to comments. I'm "borrowing" my neighbors wireless connection to post this quickly so I gotta go before I disrupt their internet usage:P See you soon, inshallah.
