**I changed the original wording to say "unconventional" because AstagferAllah, the original word I used showed no appreciation.
as-salaam aleikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuh,
Have y'all gotten an unconventional gift before?
I really really do appreciate it when people give gifts. It is a really nice gesture Mashallah.
But this gift was funny but unconventional LOL:
A rooster!! A woman that has known the family for a while gifted this to us last year Mashallah... that was nice of her... except we didn't even have a farm to put him on (this was long before my BIL bought farmland)!!! We still live in the old-school houses where the courtyard is in the center of the house and the garden area is too small for a rooster to be happy living on LOL
We did find him a good home though Alhamdulillah
Though while he was home for a day and a half, our cat ZuZu did get to meet him:
Final whisper to Texan in UAE: allll I was talking to my step-father and I asked "How are y'all?" and he goes "You moved all the way to UAE and you are now saying y'all? Really? Y'all?"
*note: we do not say "y'all" like the Texans do. we say "You all"
