The Simple Things in Life

“Enough is enough, Mum. Beards, moustaches … I don’t need this at the moment. I feel like taking a break.” A break, dear?

Pbreak (18)

“Yes. Stop hurting my head with these daft conversations. I’m just going to go off and pull some weeds or make some crumpets or something.” That sounds nice, dear. And I really do understand. But I don’t think you can just go and leave me here you know.

Pbreak (23)

Oh, well, if you really must … then I wouldn’t say no to a couple of those crumpets.

Where have you been? Have you got over your David Bowie thing yet? It’s all very well being upset dear, but people will stop looking at this if you just flounce off you know.

“Thanks a lot Mum. Actually, I have been trying some animating.” So where is it then?

“I think I have to start again. It’s all flickery. It’s rubbish. Sometimes I just feel like giving up. I’m old, I’m mad and I can’t do it … technically I mean.”

Nothing wrong with being old and mad, dear. I tried it myself before I died. And if that’s the way it goes … Well *San Fairy Ann.

I Explain The Major Tom Effect To Syb

I can see that it’s sad for you that David Bowie is dead, dear … but I don’t see why you’re quite so bothered about it.

“I think it’s because he was like … my own biographical Zeitgeist, Mum.”  What?  “… He was the same generation. The same geography when I was a kid. Streets not miles away from mine. I could have gone to the same school. Major Tom in his tin can – Space Oddity – I was at art college when that was playing on the radio.”

Oh, I remember you coming home from college for the holidays. I had to tell you off … your nails were filthy. “That was printing ink, Mum.”
