Generally I can be found roaming somewhere in the world. I'm originally from Hungary, I grew up in Kuwait, I did my BA in the States, my MA in the UK, and now work in Hungary, but still return to Kuwait regularly :o)

My mom flew home tonight, so we took her to the airport. Since her flight is at 2:30am, we left for the airport at midnight. Since it was late, I was thinking I won’t run into anyone at this late hour at the airport out of all places, so I just wore a T-shirt and jeans, flip-flops, zero makeup, didn’t even do anything to my hair, no jewelry, glasses…looked like a bum.

And of course I did run into someone. Someone I haven't seen in years, who has nothing to do with Kuwait and the chances of him (yes, a HIM - to make things worse) being in Kuwait were negligible.

While he doesn’t matter, I would have preferred to not have looked like a bum when running into him. Or when running into anyone I know, for that matter...

And worst of all, he was with a friend and was like “I hardly recognized you. You look…different.”

I’m traumatized...

Don't worry about such things! If more young ladies leave the house without make-up then Kuwait wouldn't be so scary! :oP

Young ladies here over do it with make up and I personally like those who wear little or non!

Think of it this way: you're SUPPOSED to look like you did at the airport. Only the nouveau riche dress up to go to the airport or travel. :)

I would’ve said: "Nem értem." I hope that sounds right. Then, I'd run for my life .. lol!

But I'm sure you looked perfectly fine without any of that.

I really wish your mom a very safe trip.

Thanks ya'll. Although I think I'll need a few more days before I can think of the incident without impulsively banging my head against the wall...

Pearls: impressive. Where did you get the letter with the accent? You know any hungarians here?

Don't worry about it. He probably would've said the same thing even if you had done all those things :P
