Mickey


Mickey, Micky Geib and Super Mickey. Simple love them. They helped me through bad times and made my good times more enjoyable.

When it stopped for a while was a real shoack for me, kept reading the old issues I had over and over and when I was all done, went to el helal establishment to see if they have mogaladat we keda.

Then nahdet masr came to the rescue, more colorful and trendy. Lots of people find it really strange that I am still buying it, the newspaper guy thought I am buying it for my kids, so when pooh magazine came he suggested I should chk it out. (pooh is my favorite)

Why do I still read it? Cause it never has a sad ending, even sad endings are funny, no one dies, no one ends up hurt for ever and time seems to have stopped for them. Donald and daisy are still dating and never got older, Huey, Dewey and Louie are still at school.

Extremists attacked Mickey and the foreign culture it is promoting. Informal relations, dating, a single parent family and the good old uncle scrouge being a misere which isn’t in out culture.

All these things I never noticed while I read it as a kid. Mom used to read it for me and she ends up sleeping and leave me just going through the images to try and figure out how the story ends and this was one of the main reasons I learned to read in an early age.

I feel happy when I buy it, happier when I find super mickey as it comes as a surprise for me.

How amazing the simplest things in life are the most that makes us happy, and how our simplest wishes are the hardest to come true.

My neighbors, my cousins, my brother, some of my friends and I still read it, but actually I rarely buy it by self, for a while the publisher was sending us some copies (at work) and it was a fight for me to take my copy:)

You reminded me of an old friend, he used to buy it every week and talk as if it for his kid brother "7amada", once after he bought it he found out that he bought this copy once before, so he went to the seller to return it, this man looked at him with mocking face and told him "howa 7amada le7e2 y2olak eno araha":D
Now this friend is married with 2 kids and working in Saudi, fe wa2t ma3rad el ketab, he called his wife to tell her "ro7y el ma3rad we hateely kol mogaladat mickey ele tla2eeha":)..for you and him I guess it's an addiction:)
