Screaming In Closed Spaces

HELP!” A female voice pierced the atmosphere. A shout. A massive shout!

My eyes and head immediately looked up and to my right. Then, a furious hand clap followed, accompanied with another, “Help!”

A few people stood up. I noticed my heart beat quicken, followed by a brief rush of adrenaline. What is happening, what is going on.

Suddenly. A young lady bounded down the aisle. “I’m a doctor,” she confidently proclaimed.

Ok.

I felt the collective inaudible sigh of relief from everyone else.

This isn’t what you want to be happening, in the middle of your transatlantic Virgin Airlines flight.

Normality resumed

Apparently someone was having a seizure.

A lady on my right looked over.

“Exactly what you don’t want to hear in the middle of a flight,” she said, still obviously shaken up. I gave her a reassuring smile. You know, one of those, I’m here for you smiles. I think it helped.

“I know right” I replied.

Going through traumatic, tough experiences together accelerates bonding.

Ask the cast of Love Island.

So I’m glad I was there for her.

The woman who had the seizure was fine.

Everyone went back to sleeping, reading, drinking and eating.

Me. I wrote this, and pondered the main thought I had as the situation unfolded.

If I go to the next life now, that’s disappointing. There’s still more to experience, more to see, more to do, and more to give.

But I’m at peace. I go and see my maker.

I sat recently having dinner with a friend.

We were exchanging the usual banter and laughs when she made a comment about herself that was quite self-defeating. So as you would expect from any ‘good friend/person’ I countered it.

I was shocked with her response. Continue reading “Perfect Weakness”

Deceit. Lies. Football.

‘They lied! Doughnuts don’t make you fat..’

As I watched Arsenal FC bore me (again), with their much heralded one dimensional, frankly rubbish style of football. I realised something important….

Not just that Arsenal are a completely spent force, but something about our own personal lives. You see… Continue reading “Deceit. Lies. Football.”

“No… I don’t want to do this with you anymore”

“Why?” He asked.

“It will hurt me too Continue reading “Pause… It’s a Kodak Moment.”

The Silence is Golden

Silence is golden by eReSaW on deviantART

I’ve been driving for 2 hours now. Just me, myself & I.

Not a word has been spoken. Not from the radio, not from my phone. Not from a song or CD. Nothing.

It’s just ‘The Silence’.

News flash. The world is too Continue reading “The Silence is Golden”

Have you had your Quarter of a Century Panic yet?

You’re only as old as you think you are… apparently.

So a good question to keep asking yourself is…. “How old are you in your head <insert your name here>?”

Why? Well… Continue reading “Have you had your Quarter of a Century Panic yet?”
