I’m Gonna Live Forever!

I got a fantastic phone call from my daughter in Perth tonight.

“Dad! You won’t believe what happened!”

“You got your licence!”

“No. I did go for a lesson though, and almost ran off the road. But this isn’t about that.”

“You’re coming home!”

“No. Not until October. You know that.”

“You’re getting married and he’s rich!”

“Maybe I should just tell you.”

“You missed the sound of my voice and just wanted to talk to me!”

“That’s a given,” she said. “But anyway, I was at work and I heard these customers talking in the next aisle.” Miss18 works in a chemist selling cosmetics and perfume. “They were talking about a blog.”

“Oh, yes.” I admit at this point I had a hunch where this might be going.

“Then one of them mentioned something about it being a big family blog,” said Miss18. “I stuck my head around the corner and asked if maybe they were talking about Big Family. Little Income and they said they were and how ‘he’s so funny’. I told them ‘he’ is my dad and they said, ‘Oh, so you’re Miss18. The sweetest girl in the whole world….most the time.'”

What are the odds? On the other side of the country!

I think Miss18 got a bit of a thrill out of this encounter. But however much she’s loving it I don’t think she could hold a candle to how chuffed I am. Whoever you two lovely people are, you have made my day!

But not Tracey’s day, because since I got off the phone to Miss18 I’ve been singing the chorus of Fame! all around the house and generally annoying her silly.

  • bahahahahaha, Sorry but I COULD NOT HELP IT!! 😉

    Fame, makes a man take things over
    Fame, lets him loose, hard to swallow
    Fame, puts you there where things are hollow
    Fame, it’s not your brain, it’s just the flame
    That burns your change to keep you insane
    Fame, what you like is in the limo
    Fame, what you get is no tomorrow
    Fame, what you need you have to borrow
    Fame, “Nein! It’s mine!” is just his line
    To bind your time, it drives you to, crime
    Could it be the best, could it be?
    Really be, really, babe?
    Could it be, my babe, could it, babe?
    Really, really?
    Is it any wonder I reject you first?
    Fame, fame, fame, fame
    Is it any wonder you are too cool to fool

    Fame, bully for you, chilly for me
    Got to get a rain check on pain
    Fame, fame, fame, fame, fame, fame, fame, fame, fame,
    Fame, fame, fame, fame, fame, fame, fame, fame, fame,
    Fame, fame, fame
    What’s your name?


    Feeling so gay, feeling gay?
    Brings so much pain?

    • hey Nicole! thanks for the hands across the ocean and all that. I love NZ – went to Christchurch and Queenstown a few years ago with work. Such a beautiful country. I can’t understand why anyone would leave.
