OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOhhhhhhhhhhhh M! [OPNO with her head in her hands for dramatic effect of feigned disbelief/despair] You passport is Omani, yeah?
Poor M, who REALLY DID have the naivety to believe the car repair man when he said our 4x4 would be in working condition by Saturday.
OPNO [to M on friday]: "Did you not know it is National Day tomorrow? No one is going to be working. Even on normal days nothing is ever ready when they say it is gonna be."
M: "Yes OPNO, this Saturday, for sure." There was not even wan hope in M's voice, it was absolute innocent faith, surety.
OPNO did not hold her breath. She is SURE she is more Omani than M, though her passport is the wrong cover colour for that.
