Update: Based on an anonymous resquest. 3adoola, took a video for me and Waheed fist fighting!
This week, a new woman joind us at work
A woman that I have never seen before
At least that what I thought
And while having lunch with my co-workers
She asked me if I recognize her
I looked on her face, trying not to be impolite
and said “Sorry”, but you look familiar
I guess she looks familiar
Apparantly we have studied togather at the university
and she has witnessed me in a fist fight
and she remembers my bleeding nose!
Stupid me, I thought no one saw that!
Unfortunatly, my other co-workers wanted to know the full story
I had to tell them anyway as I don’t want them to think that I have been beaten up
(Don’t you dare think I had)
The incident happened 8 years ago.
Wow, that long and I haven’t noticed Enas(the witness) existance!
It was a numerical class at 8 am in the morning
The class were full, and I was sitting just before the last row
In the last row, three other guys were *happy*
They were SINGING and LAUGHING!
I didn’t have my eye-glasses that day
and so, I was trying to concentrate on hearing the Professour
But I couldn’t because of their voice
I turneed around and asked them politely to SHUT the HELL up
They said ok, but kept on singing!
So I turned to them again
This time furious, and demanded them to SHUT UP.
The Professour heard us argueing, and so he demanded to know what is going on.
I said “There is nothing, the guys are singing, and I am just shutting them up”
What an ‘esfeen’! (wedge) – They most probably failed the class because of this.
The Professour was furious on them.
I am not sure how did he punished them, but I am sure he did harshly.
After the class, I left in peace.
Like nothing has happened.
Actually pretending that nothing has happened.
One of the guys followed me.
He came to close and shouted on my face ‘Gadha hai el 7arakeh?’
Which means “Can you face the consequences of what you have did?”
He was thin, he didn’t freak me out.
And because I was walking with a girl friend of mine
I had to act
In order to save my manhood
Otherwise, I would become the laugh of the university
So I pushed him away and said “yes, gadha, what are you going to do?”
He said “Meet me in the parking lot of the science faculty”
Sure I will.
How immature I was that time!
Actually, I haven’t been in a real fight before that incident
and sometimes I doubted my couragement
So it was good to prove it back then
I stupidly went there alone
Not thinking that he is there with his friends
Maybe I thought of that, but I was stubborn and wanted to prove that I am couragrous enough.
Fortunatly, it was only me and him who fought each other.
I wanted to grab him because I knew that my body is stronger
But there was another guy of his friends between us
Both were taller than me, and so I couldn’t reach him
Not untill a strong punch of him hit my nose!
I felt it hard
I became raged
And so I jumped and caught him from his neck
And Squeezed it in my arms while punshing his head hard
While the other guys trying to break us apart
I didn’t want to let him go
Not until I saw some blood drops on the street floor below us
I freaked out
Thinking that I hav injured him badly
and so I let him go
Only to realize that those blood drops weren’t from him
They were actually coming out of MY nose!
Which was bleeding like a flood!
That really made me angry
But what to do, the fight was over
I didn’t realize that we had that much witnesses!
Nonetheless Enas and her friend!
Who still remembers my bleeding nose till today!
And is telling everyone at work about it!
Anyway, I went to the University health center.
There was an Egyptian nurse
Who wanted to know what happened
“Meen da el Motawa77esh elle 3emel feek keda? Da mesh bane 3adam, da wa7sh!”
“Who is this monster who did this to you? He can’t be human!” She said.
and then she grabbed a long piece of fabric
around 3 meters long!
Actually I am exaggerating
and pushed it all into my nose!
I have no idea how she could do that!
I have no idea how she could squeeze that large piece of fabric in my little nose
(not very little nose)
So now you know why my nose is big
Everyone know that story now
But I insist that I am the one who beat him up
At least this is what I want to believe
THIS IS WHAT HAPPENED
Don’t beleive me?
I don’t care
Actually I do.
Well I don’t
I am over it now.
I can live with my big nose
If you don’t mention it.
Just don’t think that something you did in the past can just go away like this.
There would always be some witnesses who would remind you.
No matter how much time has passed since then!
