He sat, staring at his phone. Never before had he been so captivated by a face. He noticed her long, shining, golden hair…. and her piercing blue eyes. Her smile was warm and natural, and a tad cheeky….
But what really had him hooked were the freckles. Perfectly placed on a flawless complexion, he couldn’t take his eyes away. He wanted to see those freckles every day of his life, just as an astronomer wants to see the stars in the night sky. He was falling for her, falling for this face of perfection…..
Then he swiped right, and realised the freckles were actually fly shit on his screen, and he didn’t like her any more…
So I put “tic tac flavours” into google images…. mind blown. I had no idea how many flavours of tic tacs exist around the world. Cinnamon… sounds yum. Pizza…. not sure…. Why have we been so deprived in Australia?
Must add that this became apparent to me last night after discovering watermelon flavour at my supermarket. They were shit.
Yesterday was Father’s day in Australia, and I’m glad it’s over. I miss my Dad, gone over 2 years now. And I miss my daughters, who I haven’t seen since Dad’s funeral.
I’m so proud of my girls, proud to be their dad. Lots of people wished me a happy father’s day yesterday, but to not have heard from my daughters hurts, and makes me feel that somehow I’ve not been a good dad….
