Call me Bibi-gul

I've totally turned into that little old lady who can only talk about her health.

So, go bring me some tea. Don't forget the cardamom.

I would love to bring your some tea. And a blanket too.

and she'll tuck you in too - it's one of her many skills! Hope you're feeling better. Let me know if there is anything I can do.

Hey Bibigul, that's my mother-in-law's name. She talks about more than her health- namely the health of her children, neighbors, and other loved ones- but you're in good company.

When I used to write training booklets for surveyors and monitors in Tajikistan and Afghanistan, the characters were always Bibijaan and Bobokhaan, or the reverse in Northern Tajikistan, where men are "jaan" and women are "khaan". The people found it hilarious...

PFR's Momma, PFR:

Y'all just made my day. I tried to comment in Kabul but my 'net connection was just too slow. Thank you!!!

E: That makes me giggle to call women khaan. :)
