Go, Team, Go (Beep beep)!

All evening long I heard shouting and honking and - yes - even gunfire. When I went to the Embassy to pick up Bart, there were men running in the streets with Jordanian flags, shouting in Arabic. Cars were blaring horns as they paraded through traffic circles.

It was all quite alarming until I discovered the reason for the chaos: apparently, Jordan just beat Syria in a big soccer match.

Go Jordan! I might've considered joining the revelers but I draw the line at random celebratory gunfire.

Hey! Speaking of celebratory gunfire, did you notice this is my 500th post on this here blog? Go me! Feel free to honk your horn loudly or discharge a weapon in celebration. Or, you know, just leave a congratulatory comment. Whichever suits your mood.

500 is a great milestone! I don't even remember how many posts I've had. Hmmm, maybe I should pay more attention to that.
What's life without a little random celebratory gunfire? I mean, hello, they did win a soccer game.

Must have been in the wrong part of town. It was all quiet around the 3rd Circle.

Oh! I missed this! Happy 500th blog-a-versary!! beep! beep! bee-bee-beeep! beep! beep! bee-bee-beeep!

FSO Hopeful - 3rd may have been quiet because everyone in the whole city, and from all the neighboring towns too, I'm sure, were trying to converge on and dance around Abdoun circle.

Please. Write your own stuff.
