I worked in Amman Jordan for six months.

Amman: I Loved Amman
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 fuck-up on my/her part.
I knew better—or should have—we both should have…
We did, but we chose to ignore

Some Smallish Added Value:
P.S. I NEVER slept with her!
I just loved her.
She was my friend.
Arabs would have cut her heart out if I had screwed her.
I wanted her to keep her heart in-tack
So I was honourable
For just this once….
I did the right thing.
