My mother is busily attending to her eBay business as I work on my dissertation. Her "office" - which is the entire lower level of their condo -- is also where I have set up shop. So, we talk.
We can hear my father moving around upstairs. It is a well-known Ghazi fact that my dad spends a lot of time getting ready in the morning. It is commonly referred to as primping.
Mom: Is that your dad upstairs pimping?
Mom: Or is it primping?
Mom: Isn't pimping a bad?
Me: Yes. Pimping is bad, mom. We would hope dad is not pimping.
