I feel really weird right now...a guy in the street asked me what year it is. Is that normal?
I was walking out of the mosque today, going home. Before crossing the street, a hand tapped my shoulder. I looked behind me and saw a 20-something year old man with brown hair, a beard, and a mustache. He was wearing a black suit, and by the look in his eyes I thought he was going to do something evil.
He said (in arabic) : "Excuse me, but do you know what the date is?" I said: "Yeah sure, it's March 18th." He said: "Thank you...and the year?" I laughed..."What?" Then, very calmly, he said: "The year please, tell me." That was when I felt weird...I then told him it was 2005 and hurried off...that was somewhat scary.
