Ana ibayin Suraye nashkina nani

I love kisses from Assyrian grandmothers, they are my favourite thing. They reach up (because they are short) and grab you round the neck with both arms, pull you close give you a big soft noisy kiss on both cheeks. If you're lucky they give you three - left, right, left - or even four, depending on how much they like you.

They are the currency of Assyrian grandmothers and they make me feel truly loved.
