An Iraqi Dentist named Zeyad

Even though I did not want my blog to become a political one, I cannot contain myself any longer. This is an Iraqi man living the horror and writing about it http://healingiraq.blogspot.com/

Read the 10/17/03 beginning and let me know what you think.

Things my Dad always said:

"Pears make you pretty" (so I ate a lot of pears)

"Eating/Doing --fill-in-the-blank-- grows hair on your chest" (whenever he didn't want me to eat or do something)

"Tastes like more" (when anything tasted excellent)

"It'll sure feel good when it stops hurting" (to make me laugh whenever I got a scrap or a bruise)

"Take one for each hand" (when trying to decide what cookie to choose)

"That's the good kind" (whenever he really liked something)

Next time I'll tell you the story of "Falling Rock, " Dad's version.
