Bran Nue Dae


So the doctor said let's sort out the blood sugar thing first, and the sleeping patterns and then look at the heart and weight stuff once we know what we're dealing with. I've outlived one grandfather by 16 years and have eleven years to go before I catch up on the other.

I bought a milky macchiato this morning. Ziad's mother runs the place. I told her that her macs were milkier than I was used to but my stomach appreciated the difference. "I know, darling" she said "I can make it the other way if you like." Macchiatos like a good mother. They're normally like a slightly scary cousin. The one from out of town who smokes and wears AMCO Peaches too tight. Dangerous but exciting to be around.

You gotta be happy with that no?
Amco, remembers.

As I'm heading into a new era of being frightened by female teen sexuality I relish the warm silken balm of morning macchiato as comfort food.

You will both be fine :-)

I believe we will - I hear good stories from the fathers of daughters at mercprods

Synchronistically I read an email to me from my daughter in 2006 (she 13). We were having trouble communicating, and being modern F decided to write to me to tell me her feelings and what I could do next to help her, very detailed.
Reading it now flooded me with memories, especially my vow to myself to love and enjoy simply being with F foremost, and the life lesson stuff hindmost.
Your post reminded me of this.

Some say that we've moved from human beings to human doings and now have to recall "Don't just do something - sit there"
