^Know what, if they really ask me I'll say this:
"There were these Ural-Altaic riders I bumped into while taking my usual stroll through the steppe... er... from the subway down my street. So, they invited me to a drink, and then one more and so on... and somwhen between drink #? and #(?+1) we decided upon blood brotherhood. And now excuse me I have to organise myself some Turkish fan gear..."
