i found the three gals huddled in pretty large meeting room yest afternoon. the 3 were huddled over their late afternoon mcdonalds delivered meals away from our usual snack corner in the office as they didn't want to offend the muslims in the office who would be observing the fast. i, on the other hand, can never be left out of a social gathering, and went trudging around the building looking for them. i wasn't bothered that i couldn't eat, would be more bothered about being left out.
amidst our happy chatter, the room lights suddenly dimmed. all on its own! we looked at each other suspiciously. nervous laughter followed a second of silent nervousness. we continued our happy chatter until...it happened again...this time becoming dimmer. again. we looked at each other nervously. then one of the gals said, 'aiyor, and seven month has just begun!'
i immediately responded ,' don't worry. it's ramadhan. we muslims believe that the devil, ghosts and spirits are locked up during this holy month.'
Girlfriend replied earnestly,' is it all ghosts and spirits or just muslim ones.'
i shrugged my shoulders,'i dunno. I'll ask my mom tonight'
