I miss it ..I miss it not.. I miss it ..I miss it not..

I miss the people in Amman
I don’t miss the lack of water

I miss garbage collection everyday
I don’t miss the car noises toot beep beep beep tooooooooooooooooooot

I miss mama and my brother and sister L , ta3alooh zooroony
I don’t miss jaretna the old lady who used to spy on us

I miss going out everyday to the café’s
I don’t miss coffee costing 2 JDs

I miss the weather
I don’t miss the smoking everywhere

I miss my friends
I don’t miss the “we have to visit khalet im 3am bint 3amek la2enoh 3aib”

I miss a proper eid and Ramadan
I don’t miss not being able to walk 2 steps on a sidewalk (not because of the trees ) but because of “shu ya 7elweh” and the “ya raitny kont…fill in the blank”

I miss real good food
I miss driving around aimlessly
I miss speaking Arabic all the time
I miss the dead sea
I miss Petra
I miss my taita
I miss wasat ilbalad
I miss everything

I miss it I miss it I miss it …I really do.
