The other day

Me: Let’s go to Cairo 1940 for dinner today.
Spaz: I get the feeling we’re going to be going there a lot during Ramadan, so let’s wait.
Me: You’re worried about Ramadan from now already?!
Spaz: Of course! It’s only six weeks away, dude!
Me: Wow. Yes, OK.

Only too true. I need to start the annual cementing of relationships with Coptic/irreligious friends. Especially with Ramadan being during the summer for the next six years or so. Who wants to lay bets on the emergence of a new interpretation of Muslim practice that allows bikini-wearing and swimming during Ramadan?
