me .. the british guy from dubai .. and the trainer who is a lebanese .. i'm pretty familiar with the british guy as he visits us often from corporate .. as for the trainer i met him for the first time last week ..
british guy: so how are things in your home country
me: first of all do you know what country i am from
british guy: yes
me: which is
him: yes palestine i knew that
me: eh so it's been fucked up forever
trainer: cracks up
british guy: i remember you saying that you'd never been
british guy: which struck me as .. *pause* .. well it struck me basically
me: by the way i still haven't been
british guy: sympathetic smile
in retrospect .. i wonder if he felt any guilt at that moment about being british .. you know seeing as how they're kind of responsible for how things turned out ..
