Boy? Girl?

It's hectic at work today: last minute preparations, last minute translations, last minute Tchador shopping etc...

The main question among us translators though was (for grammatical purposes): Dakhlek, is Yemen a boy or a girl?

- sabeh, sabeh!
- lek kif sabeh.. it's a girl! bannouta!
- hmm, how to make sure if it's a boy or a girl?
- (...)
- you're giving that look... why are giving me that look
- are you actually aware how "mined" your question sounds?

haydi, hayda, haydi, hayda.. whatever. what sane person has this sort of a conversation in his daily life anyway...
