Lost Post # 3: Document Created 10th December 2006, 03.20am.

Rash Decisions.

I suddenly realise that I have been praying for a road accident. Probably involving fatalities.

I am on a bus. On my way to work.

Work that I do not enjoy. And as I have sagely informed my younger siblings:

‘You’re not meant to enjoy it. That’s why it’s called work.’

Wise words. I get off my bus and head toward the other bus stop that will provide me with safe passage to the glamorous trading estate that is home to my office. That I do not want to go to.

I have under my arm a folder thick with Important Work Documents.

I have been praying for people to die, purely so I do not have to go to my place of employ.

I think about my nineteen-month old Favourite Son. Except I don’t. I’m standing in the wind (and we get proper wind here) and the rain thinking about the feel of his skin. The smell of his hair. The feel of his toes. His stupid toothy grin when he finds something new in the world. Which is probably every day. The look of ABSOLUTE delight .

I look about me. There is a queue for my bus to hell.

They do not look happy. Suits. Raincoats. Ladies with umbrellas who know their hair is FUCKED before they even get there.


Something clicks in my head.

I toss the folder in the nearest bin. And go into the nearest coffee house. And order something quite pleasant. And watch. People. Who are in a hurry. Who are shitty and rude. I drink my coffee.

I read the paper, enjoy my stupidly named coffee and then get the next bus home.

I get home.

Tired Mam: I knew.

She is smiling.

Favourite Son: Daddy home.

It’s the first time he has put two words together. I roll on the carpet with him. He does not often see me at this hour of the day. He is giggling like a twat. As am I.

It will be a frugal Christmas.

Probably unpublished as one does not like to boast about being thoroughly irresponsible and throwing-away the ability to provide for your own family.

And because it sort-of pretends that the relationship between his mother and me wasn't dead in the water and about to get worse.

Then boast about your sons toothy grin being amazing enough to turn you around and bring you home. That's worth boasting about.

Em: Thanks. 'Tired'? I was then - I had a tiresome sleep disorder that sometimes still rears it's boring head.

And of course he can. He's my son.

Actually, I wish more people would do this, and then "work" might be forced to change and become more human.

I remember this. I think I was eating cold pie and I thought, 'he's gonna walk in any minute and think I'm disgusting eating cold pie for breakfast'. Weird.

Allright. Enough.


I have no idea who you are. I have enjoyed reading your stuff for yonks.

You have a cracking dry sense of humour and you can write really well (in my opinion...which may not mean much)

Life can indeed be a bastard.

Live it old bean. It's the only one you've got.

I'm sure I'm totally wrong here but I'm feeling slightly worried about you.

Sniff the coffee and get on with it.

Only one chance mate.

Make a go of it eh?

You owe that to your kids.

(And I know I'm out of order saying that)...soz...but I did

You may probably be very curious to know how one can manage to receive high yields on investments.
There is no need to invest much at first.
You may begin earning with a sum that usually is spent
on daily food, that's 20-100 dollars.
I have been participating in one company's work for several years,
and I'm ready to let you know my secrets at my blog.

Please visit blog and send me private message to get the info.

P.S. I earn 1000-2000 per daily now. [url=]Online Investment Blog[/url]

Anon: Awesome. I'm going to be rich.

Meg: Hello. Perhaps. And thanks.

I'm commenting on all 3 at once because I've been away from the computer for a while because of things that aren't worth mentioning - but...


I can relate to so much in these posts - whether it's the intended meaning, or something I see only because I'm "me".

Good day, sun shines!
There have were times of troubles when I didn't know about opportunities of getting high yields on investments. I was a dump and downright pessimistic person.
I have never imagined that there weren't any need in big initial investment.
Nowadays, I'm happy and lucky , I started to get real income.
It gets down to select a correct companion who uses your funds in a right way - that is incorporate it in real business, and shares the income with me.

You can ask, if there are such firms? I'm obliged to tell the truth, YES, there are. Please be informed of one of them: [url=]Online Investment Blog[/url]

Benj: I don't think so but I've decided I will.

Anon: Brilliant. Not only am I going to be rich but I will also be able to cheat penguins. Great.

Sew: Apologies but that's all for now. But thanks. And I'm sure it's not just you.


C: Thank you. But I've decided that revisiting the past is not terribly healthy. At least not right now. But I'm sure the rest will see the light of day at some stage.
