Talking with a PRINCE!
When Prince Khaled finally logged on, we were all stunned at the fact that he didn’t wear any crown, jewels, sash or anything that an ordinary person would think a prince would wear. He simply wore a gray sweatshirt and comfortable jeans. His face was clean of make-up and he had a smile plastered across his face.
After the first person asked their question it was my turn. I walked up to the platform thinking this is only a one-time experience.
“Hi,” I said.
“Hi. What’s your question?” He asked.
“Ummm…well I wanted to know what type of pets you have in Saudi Arabia.”
“Well, I have 5 pets. Three Pomeranians, I Chihuahua, and a Great Dane. What type of pets do you have?”
I was surprised. Is it possible? Would a prince really ask me, an average eleven year old girl what type of pets she has? Huh? “I have 5 pets as well. A black lab, a German Shepard-Healer mix, and 3 degues.”
“Ah! Cool. Thank you!” He was as happy as a clam and extremely nice!
“Thank you.” I sat down. He was so nice I thought! That is the time I talked to the prince!
