Vehicular Intimacy

I was out with sandmonkey again today (the perils of living in Heliopolis impose grave ills on us all). Afterwards he put me in a taxi.
Taxi driver: madakhalsh ma3aki leh?
Me: hayrawa7 3ala beito ba2a.
TD: tab markebsh leh?
Me: taree2o gheir taree2y. We aslan mish haykafy me3aya. Kebeer 3ala el taxiyat howa. Me7tag ye2ata3 nafso 7etat ya3nee.
Td: la2 yeegy bardo – we ba3den inty soghayara we rofaya3a – elly yakhleeky te3rafy wa7ed kebeer keda. Into metgawezeen?
Me: la2. (Like if we were, why would he be going somewhere different at 12:30 am?)
TD: as7ab ya3nee bas?
Me: aywa.
TD: hategawezo ya3nee?
Me: la2.
TD: ya3nee sadaka akhaweya bas?
Me: aywa.
TD: bas howa akeed bey7ebek sa7?
Me: la2 (snigger).
TD: a7san bardo. Lazemlik wa7ed sampatic zayik. Wa7ed zay da tekhafy tesalmi 3aleih la yefartik eedik.
Me: ah mana 3ashan keda mabasalemsh 3aleih.
TD: leh inty betkhafy menno?
Me: la2 mabakhafsh.
TD: asly ana shayfo 7enayen ma3aki awi.

I snigger more.

TD: inty anesa wala madame?
Me: (somewhat horrified) anesa.
TD: tab mish hatetgawezo leh?
Me: (cannot begin to enumerate the reasons, grasping at straws) Ana makhtooba.
TD: tab lewa7ed soghayar adik keda?
Me: ya3nee, 7agm ma32ool ya3nee. Agnabi howa (I don’t know how that felt relevant to me).
TD: messee7i wala muslim ya3nee?
Me: messee7i.
TD: inty mase7ya?
Me: aywa.
TD: mawgood henna?
Me: beyroo7 we yeegi (sort of true).
TD: wenti bet7ebeeh aktar wala howa aktar?
Me: la2 howa.
TD: a7san keda bardo. 3arfa leh bey7ebik? 3ashan inti 7elwa.

And that’s when the conversation got bogged down into whether Layla 3elwi is hot, and whether she’s gotten any fatter. She lives right behind me.
