About three years ago, there was a family moving in to my neighborhood, like two buildings away from mine. And i remember that day, i was just walking through, and i saw them carrying their things in. It was only the father and his young son,they are from somewhere in the middle east, and the father was an older man, somewhere in his fifties i would guess. So anyway, when i saw them, i wasnt doing anything, so i went over and offered my help, and i helped them carry their stuff in.
So, since then, i have hardly spoken two words to the man, but i always say hello whenever i see him around, and he always greets me as well, but nothing further than that.
So today, im walking out from my place, and i hear this voice calling, friend, friend
so i turn around thinking, who is calling me friend, and i see him across the street, waving to i
So i go over. He shakes my hand, and he leans close to me, and says, wait here, i have something for you.
So now, im watching this quiet elder man go running into his house
im thinking whats going on today ?
Then he comes back down, and he says to i, take it off
I was like huh? Same time, i could see he was holding something behind his back
He says again, take it off, and points to my head.....and i realized, he was talking about my tam.
And he pulls his hand from behind his back, and he has got this really nice tam with a red gold green ring around it
He is smiling from ear to ear, me, i am thinking, is this really happening?
Now , he is telling i how his friend had just come from JA, and he had this brought especially for me
I was still like, Really ?
A tam doesnt really mean anything to i, but the fact that this man, this stranger, would even think to remember i like this....thats something else, that has got me sitting here scratching my head
