Remember when you were younger and people that were older than you told you that you must enjoy school while you’re in school because one day you’ll look back and actually MISS being in school? I say BULLSHIT. I have never ever for one single second missed being in high school.
University, on the other hand, is a whole different kettle of fish. I miss too much time on my hands, I miss drinking at 10am for no reason other than we could. I miss studying the night before exams. I miss two-for-one cocktail specials. I miss skinny dipping in the sea at 3 am with my friends. I miss getting kicked out of lectures. I miss Lambie and Dollface and Karen and I miss Prince Charming. I miss Justice Sprong and I miss Foo. I miss the parties we used to have and waking up in the morning and wondering where we were and what we did last night.
It was finding this post that did it.
This post that made me miss a simpler time in my life.
August 15, 2006:
We all drank wine and Turkish Tigers and talked shit, and then decided to go to this dodgy place in Buxtons centre, called Villains, to go play pool. Dyl whips a calculator out of his pocket, and starts pretending he’s having a conversation on it. We were all falling around laughing. Obviously it was one of those have to be there moments, but it was like this –
[on his calculator]
Dyl: Dude, I can’t organise that for you. I dont know who you are.
[pause as if the person on the other side of the phone is answering him]
Dyl: Hey, don’t threaten me, I’ll get your knee-caps broken you little pussy.
Dyl: Ok, no brother. Don’t worry, we’re cool. I’ll see what I can do.
[pause. Dollface asked him something]
Dyl: No, that’s just Dollface. Yeah man, you know what it’s like. I got bitches coming out my ears’
Dyl: Ok, I gotta go, I was playing a game of pool with my friends. I seriously need to get out of this business. I never get any free time. People phone me any time of day or night. Man, I’m so over this.
[he mimes cutting the call and then yells: I’m so over this crap. I’m putting my calculator on silent. On SILENT I tell you. The bastards wont be able to find me now. Fuckers!!]
Dear Me From August 15, 2006,
I miss you.
That is all.
