The Place : at the barber.
The Time : a day after an "Elections" and day before the "Results" Play.
The Action : Cutting my hair and participating in Political Conversation.

I'm not sure where I can start this Blog, really it seems that what ever I am dreaming of, it can't be come to the true ,because simply that is conflicting with the national interest, that the "damn" politician here in my country think it is true. What a pool shit!

The conversation started when my barber asked me with his nice smile, a smile for each customer :) , "So how do U like your hair today?" He asked. I replied with a smile too "like every time". Each time he asked me the same question and I answer the same Answer.
Actually I like that in Hafez, this is my barber name, as usually we people like to be asked how look I like my hair, what the service I like to have somewhere, who should be my president??, as a kind of expressing my opinion.

Then while he was cutting my hair, he asked me, with the same Smile :) "Did U participate in Elections?" Actually I have a comment here about that. I can notice clearly in our culture why always the barber has this adjective, "TALKATIVE" or sometime um imagining that barber in our society was always playing the role of a broadcast. May be because he work in all people head "cutting their hair" so he always have different news in different fields according to his customers.

Back to his question again, I replied "yes I did ", he asked "who was the candidate U elected". I replied with the name "Ayman Noor". Here comes the role of a third person of our Political Conversation, "really U did?", he said that in a smile. May be U ask how U can see all those people smile while all of that happen in your back? My answer will be by the Wide Mirror at the place :) .

The man, who I really don't know his name, said that he elected Husny Mubarak, the recent president, who stayed in this position for the last 24 years :( . the Conversation was just goes on and had turned into polemic conversation, where each one was convinced that he right for his selection. NOTE : Hafez did not participate as he does not have Election ID :( .

The man has a strong belief that Husny Mubarak is the best one to fill this position, as he has a big experience! May be he just need to modify his government and all faces around him to radically change the country. Bla blab la of talking there and there, finally after I finished my Hair Cutting, Hafez told me with his smile, again, "Naeeman" and that’s what barbers tell customers after the mission is accomplished :) I told the man who was preparing himself to take my seat now, that we learned from our history that the good people never be fall in the same mistake TWICE, and that’s so awfully to fall in this miserable fault for 24 year, and continue for the next 6 years :(

And now for the point of all that pool shit U read above, in the problem of the Elections we do have three kind of people, some who does not care at all, and um not going talking about the Negative People at all now. Second type is those who believe that the current president is good enough and deserve to stay for another period, and in our case, 24 years with just no thing except so bad Society and no Advantages at all. And the final Type here who um presenting here :( people who believe that all of this miserable situation should be changed, but NO RESPONSE at all.

Finally um feel so sick as the Results show that Mubarak had a percentage of 88.6 % and um asking here why we changed our constitution and modify our laws. To reduce his success percentage from 96 % in the last elections to 88.6% in the new one and why he do have this "Excellent" grade, is that because his great 24 years. I am not sure but really I believe it was not "Elections", it was a "Play", a big play, where 70 million poor miserable people participate and um one of them :(
