Man3an lel E7rag

I must say that I've embarresed myself more than once ,blabbering nonsense about whatever just to show that I know what I am talking about. I confess it's very ugly, and painful sometimes. But the area I am the weakest at..is the terminology that girls use to describe certain aspects of clothes. Example words are(Some Are Misspelled, I just wrote them down as pronounced ):

Drappe(bekaser el e)
Cardigan
Shamwa
Cordiroi
Bolerooo
des-mie-seasons
Tallon
Janjaa :D
Toll


These were just a sample of the most common words that girls use and I have to think for a bit before knowing what exactly are they refering to.

You could find me having a conversation like this:

A Friend: Kont fe fara7 ba2a embrae7 wel tallon talla3 3eeny..
Me: Wenty telbesy bana-tallon leeh wenty ray7a fara7 elbesy fostan.
A Friend: Silence (Baby Crying At the Background)
Me (relialsing that I shouldnt have said that): eh ya benty ana bahhazar ma3aky ..hahaha

Me: (asking My sister): Howa eh el tallon dah elly bey2oolo 3aleeh?
Sister: Silence (Another Baby Crying At the Background)...Dah el gazma elly be ka3b ya gjoe.
Me: Ana bat2ked bass ennek 3arfa


You could also easily hear me saying something like this:

El shanta ba2a el cardigan (refering to cordoroi ) elly konty labsaha el marra elly fatet kanet lazeeza..


Man3an lel e7rag, I will stop blabbering the next time I don't understand what I am talking about. But now i know every word on the before-mentioned list and I can confidently start any conversation concerning these terms. 7atta bel amara el gazma el Drappe elly ana lessa gaybaha.
