I am to be writing a TOEFL course, a private booklet for a private student, unpacking my things, dieting and exercising, going to the American Embassy, fixing things.
Napacam? What am I gonna do?
Napacam -- İngilizce düşünmek bana zor. What am I gonna do? It's becoming difficult for me to think, write, SPEAK in English.
Napacam... I have lost my motivation. Maybe if I dont sleep tonight and just work work work and take advantage of my time off for the next two days, Ill be alright...
Behiye's boyfriend is a
And I hope he left. He and his stupid hick friend came -- they invited me to drink Raki (Turkish national drink) with them, but I declined. It's Lent and I was supposed to meet my mom online around the time they wanted to drink.
Do you know what Turkish hicks look like? They wear suits. All the time. Pin-striped like the mafia, only with lots of grease in their hair and no teeth. Go to the club, they're wearing a suit. Go to the mall, they're wearing a suit. Go to the gas station, they're wearing a suit. Go to the grocery store for milk, eggs, and some bread - they're wearing a suit. Go across the street to the local small store to buy a pack of cigarettes and, yup, they're wearing a suit. Go to the barber -- wearing a suit. Go to the mosque -- wearing a suit. Go for a walk -- wearing a suit. Go to their girlfriend's house to just say hi and GUESS WHAT?!?!? THEY'RE WEARING A SUIT. A BLACK PIN-STRIPED SUIT. THE ONLY ONE THEY FUCKING OWN. THEY'RE LOOKING AT THE FOREIGN ROOMMATE LIKE A PIECE OF MEAT AND PISSING OFF HER FIANCE.
GRAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH! TURKISH KROSSSSSSS! (kro means hick in Turkish)
It starts when theyre young. At the age of puberty they start to mimick their fathers and the hick singers on TV that they find cool. And it never leaves. You know that there is no hope for a Turkish kid who's 12 to turn out ok if he's wearing a suit to school, home, the store, the mall, the club, THE LAUNDRY MAT AND TO BED. He'll don a suit forever... with too much hair gel or grease, and a ring of dirt on his neck (or else a shitload of hick-parfume -- sometimes worse than dirt).
And maybe you say "BKT, you know, maybe they dont have so much money. Maybe they dont have a job. Maybe that's why they wear a suit everyday and dont bathe. They save the hairgrease and use it as gel later... dont be so CRUEL!"
Dear friends, every KRO I have met owns 2 BMWs (SUPER expensive in Turkey), an Armani suit, and at least 3 stores on the same street -- if not the WHOLE STREET. Yep. KROS are filthy rich. Filthy rich and filthy lazy.
And they see me walking down the street at night, beep their horns to intice me to turn to them, smile, and get in their car because they think Im a (very common here) Russian WHORE.
I am only comfortable on OĞuz's arm.
Home again, home again - jiggity jig.
