Many times, I have been accused of being old-fashioned; mainly because I am not in on the new linguistics of my generation, or the card games they play or even the way of behavior. I was brought up the old fashioned way and through out my childhood my exposure to Egyptian culture was strictly through family and old black and white movies.
Do I want to change that? not really, I would like to be up to speed with the new things, just to find appropriate conversation starters, but to completely change my personality? No way.
I am still the girl who feels iffy about calling older people by their names (even if they ask me to), who thinks "Sa3eeda" was a nice greeting, acknowledges the first national flag of Egypt (the green one) as the current flag and doesn't think that Om Kalthoum can be made fun of.
On this note, I take off and say "Sa3eeda".
