… a little bit of this, that and a lot more

Out of sorts

Morning. Again no “Good” be4 the ‘morning. This was a roller coaster of a weekend

Boo pissed me off on Saturday morning at 07:45. Bad start to what had promised to be a good weekend.

One of my best friends – The Politician (TP) – phones me a bit later to tell me her dad’s had a heart attack. Last Wednesday. Is there something wrong with this picture? I let it be. I can be supportive now. Prognosis isn’t good. She’s really going though a kak time, her Mom’s got cancer too. How much more can one person take?

This news unsettled me. Made me think about life and the stupid things we fret and fixate over. Sometimes we just don’t think clearly.

Then went shopping with the TA. The Lord obviously didn’t heed my cries for help and patience BEFORE we left. 5 hours and 4 stores later (and wanting to go at each other’s throats) we were done. And not speaking to each other.

We had purchased a whopping 7 (yes SEVEN only!) items of clothing. I couldn’t wait to get through my nip (of whisky) and 5 smokes when we got out of the mall. Whoo. That was bad. Next time Boo is going. Or else. *Ok, there WAS no nip. I think THAT was part of the problem ;-)*

Then we went to the other best friend’s – the PA’s – Birthday party. No palm tree this time, but a fabulous jol nonetheless. Only marred by a few people who pissed me off (not that anyone would have known – Pokerface-‘n-all)

  1. Boo – again top of the list, ‘coz he should know better
  2. Baby Sis – she clearly doesn’t know – or maybe heed – the boundaries yet, which is the only reason she’s only nr 2 on the list. Need to make things clear.
  3. Boo’s friend – now he just had a death wish. He’s been sorted already.
  4. Playing of MJ’s music – I mean COME ON!!!! Enough already

Boo managed to piss me off again on Sunday morning. This is a record even for him. I threw a hissy fit. Unfortunately in front of his friend who’d stayed over ‘coz he didn’t want to drive all the way to JHB at 4 am in the morning. Bad bad Dizzy. Friend left straight after. He knew what was good for him.

I must have lost my funny bone in-between the call from TP, Boo’s stupidity and the naafi comments from my sister.

Which makes for a bad start to a new week

Hope yours is better.

Edit 12:28 pm:
Sister called. About something else. More sensationalism. Didn’t bite. Couldn’t care. She’s sorted. She had no idea she was crossing the line. Clearly. Drew it for her. In RED. Won’t happen again. She promised.
