Another month has passed and I don’t feel a second older. The only reason I started talking about time in general, instead of just talking about April is because I had my high-school headmaster’s speech in mind. We would crack up laughing and trying to guess how his speech would start: it was always something about time, and something about the weather…then, we’d loose interest so I have no idea how his speeches ended. Oups:D
Drive me, baby!
I have all respect for people who have bought a car, and even more a house, keeping cool as a cucumber. Most time I was as cool as a volcano! I can’t believe how time consuming the first faze is – to search the right one on the internet. Sounds so easy – you’re just clicking…yep, but you’re clicking your day away sometimes with no result. And I am not the most patient person when all we had to do was wait for the right car to pop up.
We’ve been looking to buy a car for some time, but now, for reasons that are way too boring to write about, we needed to buy a car. So one Sunday afternoon, after many weeks of searching for the car with the right specs and right price, we found the one. Like every other decent man, booked a viewing immediately after it was released, but the first slot available was 3pm. As somebody who has more experience than us suggested, we just went earlier than our booking…an hour earlier. While we were looking for a parking spot, we see that somebody took the car for a test drive.
Little was our surprise when we actually got to talk to a sales person about the car that we found out that it was sold…minutes ago, maybe second ago, right from under our noses! Fine…it wasn’t ours to be. And fair enough, next day after this incident, another similar car was released on the market, and this time, we made it ours. For some reason, Beyonce with her “Single Ladies” lyrics has invaded my mind: “If you like it…put a ring on it” more like – if you like it, put your name on it:D
Working in retail is a job that allows you to observe people…a lot – I mean you have 8 hours a day to stare at people and talk to them, and from time to time, to sell them something. April on the other hand was special this year. The moment spring comes to London, so do the tourists…and so do the celebrities. My very first celebrity that I happened to cross paths with on a gloomy Sunday morning was none other than David Beckham.
The surprises don’t stop there though. Last summer we saw John Snow (Kit Harington) and his lovely wife whose name I will not Google right now, but I can tell you that Winter was not coming. Another GOT cast member and it seems I was the only one to notice her even though she has such an imposing presence: Gwendoline Christie aka Brienne of Tarth or should I address her with her new title? I will not say anything more for those who have not watched the second episode of the last season.
Biggest surprise I had watching celebrities pass in front of my work place was not even the back of Arnold Schwarzenegger’s neck (I got there too late to see his face), but only a few days ago, on a hot April afternoon – Mr. Valentino Garavani. Ah…the little pleasures in life.
Napkin or cake?
Continuing with my headmaster’s speech, let me tell you a thing or two about the weather. Don’t trust it! It might say 18, but in the shade your posterior will still freeze…mine did. So I caught a cold right before the big heatwave. Can you imagine building a napkin castle while 24 degrees outside? People were sunbathing it was that hot this Easter.
Well, I guess things balance out because the month for April, is the month of many birthdays in this family. I don’t know what you think when you think of birthdays, but I personally think of cake. And to be precise, 4 cakes in the month of April plus Easter. Have I told you that we celebrate both Easters? Maaaan, how sweet life can be with cake.
