Earlier today I met a girl from Lebanon who had brought some things from my boyfriend’s parents for us. We didn’t know each other and we were supposed to meet on Republic Square. This is part of the phone conversation we had when we were trying to find each other.

Before we only had one provider, Armentel, a privatized state company and there was a big shortage in mobile phone numbers. Buying one would set you back up to $200 if I remember well.

    Woman: Are you going down?

    Me: Ummm, well, this is the top floor, so…

    These are the kind of moments that you want to come up with some really smart-ass answer, but you just can’t because of the unexpected silliness of the remark.
