It seems circumstances conspire to inspire me for my transition pages: this one was born from my brother's demand that he appear in the story saying "WELAANEH!" I don't know how I'm managing to indulge my people without disrupting the story flow
This page features my brother Kim and my friends Raffi (who actually is a peace worker and a stage actor to boot, with a humongous crush on Malaak) and Hassan (whom I have to thank for his army pics!) The three don't actually know each other, but I'm sure they'll bond over this
Of course, it was only a matter of time before our own neighborhood showed up as a background somewhere...
Ya Allah aaz-zaha': Oh God, the boredom!
Eop, shabeb!: Yo, guys!
Welaaneh: We haven't figured out how to translate this, but loosely it means "it's fired up", and expressed something like "the roof's on fire!" (if that makes sense...) Anyway, Kim is overly fond of the expression...
Khalleeke shwey wlo: C'mon, stay a bit!
Kol hawa: Eat wind. A polite substitution for something else I'm sure you can guess
