This Is Just A “Warm-Up”–I Wanna Write So Much More About My Six Lived Months In Amman, Jordan
And I Shall. Write More About It–Those Wonderful Days—“Those Were The Days My Friend…
We Thought They’d Never End”
Maggie and Hala Used to Sing This Song around The Office In Amman.
They Were So Charming!
I miss them so much!

I worked in Amman Jordan for six months.
(Parsons/Bechtel evacuated Iraq at the end of our project—USAID Rural Water Project)
We had completed all the ‘on-the-ground’-work.
Nothing left to do but finalize the paper-work.
We could do this in Jordan.
It was ‘safer‘
So said Parsons—No need to get anyone else kilt in Iraq—Made sense I suppose.
To no avail.
I wanted to remain in Iraq.
My opinions did not matter.
So I flew to Amman.
Parsons maintained an office there.
Jordan has some of the most beautiful women in the world.
“Danger Will Robinson!”
–AKA Lance Marcom
I fell hard for one of them.
Working in that Office of Parsons’
Her name was Margarete
She was, of course, an Arab.
But ‘Western-ized and Western- sized:
Meaning ‘Slightly Chunky.’
We fell headlong into love.
This was a monumental fuckup on my/her part.
I knew better—or should have—we both should have…
We did, but we chose to ignore
