Rice?

Salam!

Bismillah

When I converted, alhamdulillah, the sisters at my masjid decided to have a gathering/pot luck after our weekly halaqah to welcome me to the community mashaAllah.

One of the sisters came and she brought a noodle dish.

She sat down next to me with her food and she looked at me and said "American's don't eat rice, right?"

I'm not sure if she was kidding or not, but either way

:-D It was hilarious!!! :-D

It is amazing the kind of cultural preconceptions we have about people :-) I thought people from the middle east ate shish kabob every day and that canadians had maple syrup with everything.

LOL!This is about the funniest post I have read in a long time. Man, how many experiences like that I have had since becoming Muslim ... just thinking about them brings me to tears, from laughing of course.
