The definition of hegira is a journey undertaken to escape from an undesirable situation.
Hmm. Apparently my mother-in-law's tongue decided it had had enough of the simple pot I had placed it in and was going to begin a hegira of its own. I have no idea where it thinks it is going but it certainly did a fine job cracking the lip off its container.
I am attempting to get my paperwork around for the IRS. Is there anywhere I could go on a hegira that would save me from that?
