The Tangerine Incident

Yesterday while driving home, and in the middle of Cairo’s traffic jam, I saw my mother’s car right beside mine. It was a very nice coincidence :-). El mohem,,, as the red light seemed to be lastnig forever, she picked a tangerine and threw it to me through the window!!! Tab3an the passengers in the nearby cars were amazed ! They thought she was distributing tangerines to the passing cars or something !! One of them actually asked to have one too 🙂 

This tiny little incident really changed my mood for the big drive home 🙂

BTW why do we call it “yostafandi” or “youssfi” ?? When I was young I was told that someone called “Youssef Effendi” was the first one to bring it to Egypt, but is it true??
