As per my last post… you can all see it’s been very hard for me to kick my inner kid. (Not literally. That would just be mean. And it’s on a police report somewhere that I kick like a horse.) Anyway…. It’s an on-going tug of war. Matisse vs Matizzle.
I like playing capture the flag or crash bandicoot as much as the next grom. I own a tiara. I follow Miley, Taylor and the Olsen Twins on Instagram. Case and point I think. However, my preoccupation with all things teenage Disney pop princess aside…. I am in fact a fully grown adult. And here’s the proof:
1- I have foxtel. I know lots of kids WATCH foxtel. But I get an envelope with my name on it. And it says Ms Walkden-Brown. Boom.
2- The other day I put leather protector on my boots. (I then proceeded to get drunk and jump around in a puddle so it’s really a little from column A a little from column B. But the intention was there)
3- I expressed deep concern at the Ed Sheeran concert that his opening act, Passenger, swore too much for such a young audience. Admittedly I was in the audience. Nevertheless I thought, I must remember this before I let my kids go to concerts. (N.B imaginary kids)
4- I maintain a strong hatred for Ke$ha for swearing so much in her concert and just being a general idiot. I also hate that I had to click the little ‘123’ at the bottom of my screen and swap over to symbols just to write her name. Dumb.
5- I have a newspaper subscription on my iPad.
6- I own fabric softener
7- I drink tea when I get home from a night out. (If I happen to end up at home)
8- I ‘series link’ Parenthood. (Back to foxtel)
9- The only poster on my wall is a World Map.
10- It’s 8.52 and I need to be somewhere in 8 minutes. Work.
There you have it! I have proved beyond a shadow of a doubt— that I am indeed…. Grown up! There is one minor detail I strategically skipped though. This may cancel out all evidence pointing in the adult-like direction. But here it is. Honesty is best after all….
To maximize ‘craft space’ in my room… I happen to… Sleep in a bunk bed.
Okay good-bye and have a good day!
