Inner Argument


Walking on my way home in the windy weather with a scarf wrapped around my neck, I was having an 'inner argument' wether to go to pass by the jam3eya.. or not.
(keep in mind it's litteraly 5 minutes away from my place)

1st side of me:
gosh im too tired.. had a long day, saw too many faces.. Need to go home, clear my mind, rest and eat.. yes eat.. oh and there's Subway, get a sub.. yo3anah!

2nd side of me:
the jam3eya is almost on the way, why not pass by it.. Plus it's so much better to eat healthy stuff... shlech eb hal Subway? oo ba3dain 9arlech 2 weeks tgoleen bashtery Fresh Fruits o lail7een ma sharaitay 3ala saan3!

1st side:
Don't go! the bags will be too heavy.. plus you'll be wasting plastic bags.. shfaydat el cloth shopper bags ehta uhma mkawedeen bl bait o u dont use them?!

2nd side:
yalla 3ad, ur handbag is not heavy today, so u'll be able to carry a couple of jam3eyya bags, o b3dain u can reuse or recycle the plastic bags, fa chaab.


yours truely decides to go to the jam3eyya afterall, but not before passing by a store and trying on 2 dresses and a top..
(so much for the 'waii ana ta3baanaaa' part, :P )

strolling around the jam3eya isles, i head to the checkout and happily bag my 4 bags of healthy food.

 
"your total comes to £..." 
i look in my handbag, search for my wallet... Not there :/
The ONE day i forget my wallet at home turns out i need it! why WHY does that happen?! 

so now i had to walk home WITHOUT my groceries :( (thats 5 minutes of walking) 
pick up my wallet and head back to the jam3yaa.. (add another 5 minutes) 
and carry my groceries bak home (more walking time..)

Thats Triple the time/walking effort!

I was too tired unpacking my groceries, let alone make food!
lo sam3a kalam 1st side a7sanlyy..

actually I don't totally regret it, cuz i'm enjoing munching on this 'pink lady' apple =)



Too much garga today... just wanted to share a Lovely Award passed on to me from the one and onlee Queen Beeeeee!
its supposed to be passed on to 7 other bloggers.. but i like too many.. can't chose!

Thank you Balqees :*

now when you decided to go to the jam3eyah, you forgot your wallet!!! it wasn't horrible after all.. since you had some fresh healthy fruits.. walking between jam3eyah and back to your place is a good exercise :)

Honey why don't you order online from Tesco or waitrose?

Chinna Sainsburys does it too???

when im back in the UK i walk around the grocery store just for fun... but on the day i arrive i make sure within two hours tesco will knock on my door with my groceries o i always always have a pizza hut home delivery ordered b3d :D That's my first night in the UK ritual ...

Hmmmmm i remember the smell of subway while walking into the train station... our last time there me and butootee said we would grab a couple of subs and ride on the train but then changed our minds and waited until we got back home then changed o went to Ziizii o had the best spaghetti with buffalo mozzarella ever!!!!!

Btw i love subway. The first time Butootee showed he cared about me at all was over a subway sandwich :D
