Guess.What.Day.It.Is?

20200509_183755

Our very own Sawsan. Milwaukee, Wisconsin May 2007. Weekend summer festival by the lake.

And I quote Sawsan: “I was stressed. He (Caleb) was huge. My daughter and I were between his two humps. I sunk in. I was so worried she would fall. Seriously, it was like being on a ship in the ocean in high waves.”

How great is this?!?


Notes:

  • Sawsan’s WordPress blog can be found at: Last Tambourine
  • Background on Caleb/Wednesday/Hump Day Posts and Geico’s original commercial: Let’s Hit it Again. Caleb is grounded in Work For Home and can’t come out to play this week.

  2. Bravo Sawsan! And tks for sharing this great memory and souvenir from another time. You truly are as beautiful as I knew you were…. even looking kind of scared on that far-away height (I wd be terrified too. AND with your small daughter up there). 🐫

    And Thank you Dave for saying *our very own*, she is our national treasure. Just think you couldn’t banter with her? Where would all the fun be? 😉👍🏻

  7. What a great shot! How wonderful Sawsan was willing to give it to you, DK…
    She is so beautiful and regal, sitting up there looking fearless (fake it till you make it)

        • Really???? Is she shut away during R? She shouldn’t. I knew many Muslims who worked all day, we’re amongst people, took money and chatted. Then, in the eve, they attended to their fattened lambs and sweet feasts… I never knew how they did it. Had a great bakery nearby, al the guys always cheerful, super friendly, never a complaint…. I am starving just thinking about it!

          • She chooses to stay off social media (except Wattsap as that is more like a phone than social media). And yes, she is doing the fasting, too.

    • Fake till you make it is exactly what that was 🙂
      About being ‘willing’ to give him the shot, I pretty much dug a hole for myself that I couldn’t get out of. I did this to myself.

      • It works. Trust me. I use this technique all the time 😉
        Well… your willingness is to our benefit so I can’t be mad at him for using it…

          • Fake it till you make it.
            Baffle them with Bullshit when you can’t Dazzle with your brilliance.

          • Now don’t take this technique lightly.
            One of the lessons in Richard Stengel’s Mandela’s Way, 15 Lessons on Life, Love, and Courage, advices that one must put up a front. That’s another way of saying fake it.

          • This is true. I don’t use it to be fake; I use it to create self-assurance. Pretend I know what I’m doing so I have the confidence to really do it. Oddly enough.
