In the Middle East, the arrival of Ramadan typically sparks excitement.
Whether believer or agnostic, fervent or private, kul man mistaanis.
Dinners are feasts. dawaam are slashed. And the television broadcasts
the best soaps and da:yaat of the year.

That said, almost everyone has their disaster quSah from Ramadan.

Of course, not drinking and eating for hours can be khaTar
if not practised with care. Perhaps the trickiest thing about Ramadan
is not the actual fasting, but exercising self-control lemaa akhiiran
it is time to eat and drink.

So when futoor comes (or the time to break fast) it may be tempting,
almost unavoidable, to gorge on water or Vimto or whatever -
to make up for all the holding back. But al-jism doesn't tend to agree,
and if you aren't careful, instead of laying jokes at dinner
you might end up blowing chunks.
