…back at school. I couldn’t handle it when other kids at school gave me shit or picked on me.
I also disliked maths a lot. Wednesday was maths day….
“Ohhh..my throat hurts.”
“Not feeling very well sweetie?”
“Ugh..not really. Can I have some icecream to make my throat feel better?”
“Sure. It’ll soothe it…”
“I think so too. Nice..and cool…and sweet..and SOOTHING..”
One big bowl of ice cream later.
“You should go to bed Michael, so you feel better in the morning..”
Throughout the night…
Wednesday Morning…time to get ready for school…
“Oh dear, you still don’t sound very well…I heard you coughing during the night.”
“Yeah….it’s just really tickly and sore..”
“Maybe I shuld take you to the doctor..”
“No..No…it’s not that bad..”
“Want to stay home today? I’m going shopping..”
“Ummm….ok…..sure….yeah…i think it’s best.”
Shopping…Maccas…all by myself…for the whole day…and..
Thanks Mum. You knew I was never really sick, but you enjoyed the company as well.
They were memorable days. Especially eating chicken in the Maccas above the ice skating rink at Macquarie Shopping Centre or watching Days of Our Lives on the couch.
Have a great day Mum 🙂
