Mishmish season

Yum, it's apricot (mishmish) season here in Egypt. The pictures don't convey it maybe, but these apricots taste really good. In Arabic, if someone asks you when something that you think is unlikely to happen will happen, you can say "fi-l-mishmish" -- meaning loosely "in apricot season," which lasts only a month.
