“Don’t Touch This”

13 Jun


When I met Amir for the first time, after Ranim asked for my permission to call him to invite him to come meet me, I told him right away that it was going to difficult for me to like him. He was very quiet, as I kept chattering away. When I told him, “If you break her heart, I will kill you,” he responded, “I would kill myself first.” Hmmm. Good response. Do you think Ranim had prepared him to meet me? I am not sure how or why the next topic came up. Ranim was surprised that I had never heard a song before. She and her Amir looked it up online. “Yadda, yadda, yadda, yadda. Don’t touch this. Yadda, yadda, yadda, yadda. Don’t touch this!” She started singing. You keep singing it to him, Ranim.
