OMFG!!

14 and 12 year old girls, hormones, strops, hissy fits, tantrums, smiles, laughs, farts and snores in the night, "Dad can you get me a hairdryer?", "No, I'm fine, I just want to read my book", "Yeah, whatever Dad", the Colombo symphony is going on outside as I type this, diesel engines, horns, that rumble of traffic and roadworks, the Barefoot Garden, ice cream at Odel, "Dad I'll have the chocolate sugar free one", 14 is almost an adult, 12 is so often still a child, "Dad can I have a piggy back?", the SAARC thing seems like such a good idea, expensive, inconveniencing everyone, closing colombo, yes, that makes sense, it's not like the country needs the money for other things these days, is it just me or is the men's department at Odel getting worse by the week?, I remember when it was good, or did I just buy everything?, nearly got on the same flight as a famous blogger, but didn't, string hoppers, white potato curry and pol sambol for breakfast, mmmm..... finally I've found the full stop.
