Kinda hot?

On a really hot day like Saturday was, you’d expect things to go wrong, and you’d get cranky as a result.

Many things went wrong, and I got cranky. I even wanted to smack some people around good.

Then I came home and my father waved an envelope at me, and waved and waved and waved before he placed it and his hand behind his back so I wouldn’t see him waving the envelope. He then said he wanted to go to the post office to post something. I drove us out to the village and we bought some bread, a jar of peanut butter, a packet of M&Ms and a box of biscuits. Then we found a post box to put his envelope into. Then I found an AXS machine to pay my parking fines through. Then I drove us home again.

And in that half hour, I contemplated talking about his having Parkinsons again, but didn’t get round to talking. I don’t think he wanted to either.

Hot enough for ya?

But it was stew very hot at sunset.

iTunes’ party shuffle is playing a copy of: I’ve Got You Under My Skin – Diana Krall – When I Look In Your Eyes, of which I have the original CD and therefore didn’t steal music.

  1. OMG. It’s way too hot in Singapore. It’s like 14 celcius here. Nice beautiful sunny day. mmmm… Yeah as my dad grows older too, it’s hard to talk about health issues and all that. Managed to talk him and my mum into making living wills, so I would know what to do if they should get too ill.

  3. Parkinson’s disease is very terrible. You retain your mental faculties the entire time but everyone treats you as if you are senile. I hope your dad will be able to discuss his thoughts with you – it would be awful if he tried to go down that road alone.
