Sorry folks that was a long time out indeed.
Its just that after a half a century of fasting during Ramadan, you realise that you are no longer a spring chicken and it takes a toll on you. You are not really your usual sweet self. You lose a few kilos which you will undoubtedly put on again after a couple of weeks and try as much as you like to kick your nicotine fix habit, the last stick puff after sahur is still the best yet.
Ah well, still a couple of days to go.
