152 and Still Not Fitting on a Queen Bed

By the way, that’s 152 cm, so that is around five foot tall.

Anyway, this is about a friend who shall remain nameless although 1) she never reads this anyway, and that I know for a fact and 2) people who know me and her would know who she is.

So I took the bus home with this unmentionable friend of mine, and we got onto the topic of sleeping (the explanation is hard, just deal with it). I said that I sleep on one side only because the other side has a biggish earring which digs into my ear if I sleep on it, and I’m too lazy to change it for sleepers every night. She looked at me weirdly, but then went onto say that she sprawls out when she sleeps.

“I’ve got a Queen sized bed, but I’ll start the night off at one end and end up on the other next morning.”

“You’re, what, 152? How the hell do you sleep?”

“I like to roll around a lot.”

“…that’s what she said.”

I dunno, I just thought I’d blog about that. I thought it was amusing. But Dom wouldn’t. Apparently I’m not very cool according to Dom.

Haven’t seen you in a while

Today on the tram ride to Flinders, as a joke, when I sat down next to Jen I pretended that I hadn’t seen her in a while.

“Oh hey! It’s been a while, how’ve you been?” said I.

“I’ve been well,” said Jen.

“Yeah? Katie’s grown up a bit now hasn’t she? How’s she doing?”

“She’s great. Yeah she’s 17 this year.” (Which is of course the same age as Jen currently)

“How’s Tommy?”

“(Tommy’s a crap name.)”

“(YOU’RE the mom.)”

“Tommy’s good. He starts kindergarten next year.”

“Oh wow he sure grew up fast. I still remember when he was this little.”

“Yeah, and Bindi’s 21.”

“Oh wow, must be a handful.”

“Hey you goin’ to the reunion next month?”

“Yeah, the 30th right?”

“(Wow that makes Tommy have a really old mom.)”

“20th? (No that means you had Bindi when you were in Yr 12. 25th, then.) Yeah 25th Reunion. Wow it’s been ages since I’ve seen Julia…”

“And SONAM! Yeah oh did you hear Jen T- is now the…”

“President of China?”

“Yeah and plus she discovered a cure for cancer.”

“And April…well we have to call her Senator Scarlett now. (No wait, you can’t be a Senator if you’re not born in America.)”

And so it went on.

The looks we got.
