a kingdom for the dragon slayer.

after i have roared, i did cry, a lot, and now i have moved on to inappropriate jokes and thoughts. if you are easily offended, you may want to skip this post. but then i don't know how you got here in the first place.
i am at the airport, trying to drink as many double g&ts before i board. i'm sitting here with my new pink memory foam pillow around my neck. my dad is having an emergency heart surgery and i'm flying home. whoopsie.
the surgeon is one of the best and he is close to my family. in fact back in the day he wanted to go out with me. i didn't want to for some silly reason or other i can't remember now. in fact i can, but i won't tell you for fear of someone yelling at me. ups.
my brother reckons if all goes well, i owe him a date after all. i agree and guess it's the modern day version of slaying a dragon for a girl.
on a more serious note i guess it is ideal worst case scenario. a personal mcdreamy for my dad. which doctor gives you his cell phone number and direct line to the theatre?
trying to pack when you to travel into the unknown, trying to keep the tears and the thoughts in check, is a tricky one. we all know that packing is a bitch at the best of times.
i'm wearing my leopard pants, not sure if this is appropriate. but then i will be at least easily recognizable as the 'daughter from africa'.
i thought about bringing my camera. after all i'm going to a city in germany i have never been too. can one do sightseeing on such occasion? i left it at home. iphone will have to do. i took my little blue backpack though. it reminds me of happier travel occasions.
i packed a small bag, the lady at the airport even asked me if i was sure i wanted to check it. yes, i am, i have shampoo. fuck. yes, you can buy shampoo in germany, but as i said packing is a bitch and i wasn't thinking clearly.

i had a lot more sarcastic and funny thoughts before i got here and started writing. now all i can do to not think about my dad is to wonder whether air france has really nice wine. they better.


  1. You write so beautifully. Raw and honest. Sending all my positive energy, happy vibes, prayers and meditations into the Universe!!! X

  2. I hope all goes well. and yes, go on a date with the guy. you hopefully never need his help again, but it's always good to have some doctors and lawyers available if need be...

    1. definitely - i love me some good lawyers and doctors. we will see about the date :)

  3. Oh my gosh! Safe travels and I hope all is OK with your dad. I've spent the past 2 and a half weeks at a hospital visiting my boyfriends dad. Hospitals are stressful and make you lethargic, so in knowing this, I send you energy and a big hug!

    1. Thanks, Bailey! Dad getting better, so that makes it all worth it.

  4. Wait what? You didn't wanna go on a date with Dr-Heart-Surgeon-Guy? #shameful to all the single ladies
