I waited for three buses before I could get a ride to the school today. The first one filled up with two Muslim women and their two children who all arrived at the curb after me. The second filled with the few younger Muslim women who arrived after them. And then, nevermind my waving, I almost missed the third because it swung down the street in front of me to pick up a Muslim woman who turned up after all of them. I eventually arrived at the school, where the WiFi was on the fritz. My computer was the first to pick it back up (because I was the only one continually trying to reload the web), and Affaf disapprovingly stated “Americans get everything they want.”
