There is an Arabic proverb that says - "S'am, s'am, wa fatar ala Bassala". Translation - he/she fasted and fasted and broke the fast with an onion.
This proverb means that someone can -- pray, wish, hope, work for, invest, wait for...a desire to come true, a particular outcome...and in the end God sends him/her an Onion.
And Onions I have known...plenty of fucking onions...dry onions, white onions, red onions, shallot onions, spring onions...all kind of onions...
I peeled and peeled and did nothing but tear in the process...and what was inside the onion, but more layers and more layers of EMPTY skin...and the lingering smell of what else but onions! YUK!!!
OK God, Khalass the joke is over now. It is no longer funny. I have fasted and fasted and will not settle for an onion. I'd rather starve.
Please take good note because am not backtracking !
