We may not be Emiratis, but we do live here and we feel proud to share in breaking the Guinness World Records along with our host country, especially as my daughter was among the almost 7,000 United Arab Emirates pupils who formed the World’s Largest Human Sentence.
We beat China, the previous record holder by several hundreds.
In the sea of whites, my daughter is a shiny white dot among the letter D.
Now, this has made my traipsing from shop to shop like a mall rat, while looking for a no-frills white shirt and the daunting feat of engaging a selfish selfie taker in the restroom/washroom – that’s what we mainly call it here, worth all the trouble.
Remember, no selfies in the washrooms please. Thank you very much.
I am still smiling and feeling very magnanimous, I may just be a bit more forgiving to indiscreet toilet photographers if and when I catch them 🙂
