Simple pleasures


ScotchOccasionally, my girl goes off on a business trip to the States, and I’m left to hold the fort for a week or two.

Sure, I get a bit lonely on my own when she goes away, and it reminds me of how important that one big thing is in life: love and companionship, that someone special in your life. That someone with whom you watch documentaries on DVD and sit in the park and read books; who reads you ghost stories when you’re making dinner and listens to you whinge about your day. It’s amazing how two weeks can seem like such a long time without those simple pleasures.

But I know, when she gets back from overseas, there’s always a little bit of (duty free) compensation …

    A week or two… luxury… I’m about to go off for 6 months. I don’t think even whisky will get me through.

    It was in reply to Reverend Anaglyph’s comment. Surely you don’t think I’d comment here because of what YOU write? 😉
