I saw a little thing the other day that made me giggle. An Emirati couple – him dressed in white hijab (‘modest clothing’) and her dressed in black hijab are wandering through an upmarket furniture store in the Emirates Mall.
The husband walks up to a rather gaudy dart board and says to his wife – who is a wandering a few steps behind – something in a tone of great approval and gives the dart board two taps with this forefinger like a teenage who has to poke everything. She approaches and in a tone I can only say was completely non-plussed, says something which I think was either
a) “I don’t THINK so”,
b) “Over my dead body” or maybe even,
c) “You have absolutely no taste WHATsoever!”
And she kept on walking past him and the dart board without missing a step.
