Love It! It is true to say we are given a pack of crayons when we are very young and then they are taken away to be replaced by the mundane things deemed necessary for our learning and advancement through that which is life!
However, we all need to be able to soar and fly and reach new heights so yes ” I would like my crayons back,please.”
And learning I am, learning new skills almost every day wether it be how to make ” Sour Dough” or how to ” Track changes on Word” or just “How to.”
Marvelling sometimes at how much this old brain of mine can absorb.
My bestest friend is ” Mr Google ” because if he doesn’t know then it doesn’t exist…well in my world. I’m sure someone, somewhere would disagree with that..but who cares? not me!
And yes that element of being afraid of what people think seems to have abandoned me and I think for the best because it brings with it that sense that I can do almost anything if I put my mind to it.
Sky diving NOT being one of my ” I wish I could ” Ha ha….
Today is short story day, very short but a story penned by me as I am finding a penchant for short stories now and again so here goes…… This one is about circumstances and peer pressure.
“Why can’t you be like your sister? Look at her school report. Its brilliant. Don’t just stand there like a dummy! Answer me.”
Kevin had no answer he just hung his head wishing the ground would swallow him up.
” Stupid bitch I hate you” he muttered.
“Go to your room and stay there. We are taking Sally shopping.”
Yadda, Yadda, Yadda, Kevin just switched off. I hate you all he thought. Talk about Miss Goody two shoes what does she ever do wrong? They don’t like my friends, how I dress….nothing!
Kevin’s phone rang.
“Hey Kev, what’s up? Wanna come over?”
“Can’t, me old lady she’s grounded me again”
“Oh come on Kev, climb down the drain pipe your old dear will never know.”
Kev thought for a nano second, and then going to the window he shinned down the drain pipe to the ground. Rounding the corner at the end of the street Kevin saw his friends Tom and Stevie coming towards him.
“What’s up Kev?”
“My old man and lady going off on one again. Goody two shoes got another good school report.”
Tom nudged Stevie.
“Come on then Kev lets show them. I know an old dear who doesn’t lock her door.”
Kevin followed them.
Don’t normally write about peer pressure but been a lot in the news lately.
Love you all.. more recipes in my next blog, the Beef Rendang was amazing and Gin & Tonic Cake is my next to do cook, doing boring things at the moment like cooking more beetroot to pickle..they keep eating it.
