She hates politics, news, religions and sports but loves comedy and folding origami

Published by:

Olive Goldwater (name changed) hates politics, news, religion and sports. She hates the parliamentarians, news anchors, religious chiefs, sportsmen and sportswomen. Olive’s father is a great fan of all what Olive hates and he recently had to sell his childhood house in Spain to pay of his debts.

Olive and her family have been currently living in Southall, England. She knows several Pakistani men and women there and she loves watching Pakistani comedy shows, her Pakistani friends translate the lines to her and she thoroughly enjoys it. She now speaks a bit of Urdu and Punjabi herself as well. She tries to look for the Pakistani comedy videos with English captions which she rarely finds. She recently enjoyed watching a video titled “Woh Log Jo Galiyan Dete Hain” featuring Pakistani comic writer – Anwar Maqsood and one of the most infamous Pakistani comic actors ever – Moin Akhtar. She watched it with a Pakistani friend who kept translating the video for her in English, the video was about a Pakistani college professor who couldn’t pay his bills working as a college professor in Pakistan and had to travel to Dubai and work there as a driver for an Arab sheikh in order to pay his bills and take care of his family. The funniest part in the video was about the protagonist’s maternal uncle who swears everything and everybody that he ever comes across. Despite of being a medical doctor, this maternal uncle of the protagonist lives in a rented apartment and he always pays his rent late because he seldom has any money. He only practiced medicine for a couple of months and stopped practicing after that. Since then he has been living off other family members and now his kids who are all 20+ and working now.

Olive’s most favorite hobby is folding origami as it is not only fun but also improve cognitive abilities. Olive does it whenever she can and wherever she can.
