    abesheet … why the change in titles if you don’t mind me asking? (i loved ‘the space between’)

    Nice nick yeselalewa 😉 .

    Well.. when i entitled it “the space between” i was planning to make all the story a fantacy on Yeti’s side. You know, she and Wasse separated, she was alone, had too many things she needed to deal with and didn’t, so she became a psycho. Sort of. And, ofcourse, to show the stories we tell are only half truths, etcetra.

    Queueing theory felt so right. Isn’t that what a woman is supposed to do once she reached her early 20’s. Wait for a husband? If you have stood in a queue at the Addis Ababa University, beMizgeba qen, you’d understand how our lives resemble standing in a queue so much.
