World Cup

The Hong Kong government recently issued a series of guidelines for citizens to follow during the World Cup. For example, people should remember to eat. They should try to go to work. They should get up and stretch every now and then. They should consider toasting goals with water instead of alcohol. Apparently no one is listening to this because the city is complete madness. The first game starts at 7:30 p.m., the last at 2:30 a.m. Bars are open all night, the streets of my neighborhood are insane, and there are people stumbling home from pubs at 6 a.m.

Last night Kelly was at a bar watching the USA-Slovenia game until 1:30 a.m. This was our conversation this morning:

Me: Why is your hair full of food?
Kelly: Leave me be!

*sigh* How many more weeks of this?
