I forgot how, seriously.

Tomorrow morning my six year old son and I will attend our first religious service together. It's a holiday for the Muslim world, apparently. We're in Rochester and honestly, I have not set foot in a mosque or touched my forehead to a prayer rug in maybe 12 years.. We're going to the Turkish Society of Rochester for the service, where pretty much everyone knows who I am and knew my father. There will be lots of looks and double takes from old friends of the family.. Some of whom remember a time long ago when my father took me to prayers as a child. Reis is going to be told to follow my lead tomorrow.. Little does he know that I will be copying everyone else around me. It's going to be interesting, for sure.
Happy Bayram and Thanksgiving.
Thanks for reading.

Wow, you have trademarked American Turk!!! But, you are not the only one abi-LOL! Umarim hersey iyidir. Ben bu gece his uyamiyorum! I grew up in Roanoke, Va. (where there are very few Turks), and my mother is American, but I still speak fluent Turkish.

I have my own blog called The Daily Vampire
