Calling all Indian and Middle Eastern stereotypes

Sunday night, Amy and I went to dinner, along with Miss Britt, Mister Britt, and the Brittlings, to the lovely home of Faiqa and her husband Tariq (and their daughter).

As you can imagine, dining at the household of a Pakistani woman married to an Indian man, it was a very typical meal. Rather than try to describe it, because I know I wouldn’t do it justice, I thought I’d just illustrate a snapshot of the evening. Click to embiggen:

  1. WHOA. My daughter is NOT antisocial!
    She was washing dishes in the kitchen because we’re big on child labor in our household. Don’t worry, she gets $0.03 for every four dishes she washes *and* dries.

  2. Amanda, nice use of the word “ogival”!

    Atomic Bombshell, you just have to squint a little and they’re there.
