It's the day before Australian Mother's Day, and I was out at the shops for bread and milk. Thats where I saw them all.
Half the people were out collecting cakes or wines for the lunch, or hauling enormous bouquets of flowers - cause they could think of nothing else. Probably all thinking:
wouldnt have bought herself already?"
Then there was the other half. They were even less likeable. Walking around glowing in anticipation of tomorrows adulation. All most likely thinking:
that all my expectations will be met!"
And most of these are basking in their own beatific glow, as though by the virture of their issue surviving its birth, that they themselves are entitled a sense of accomplishment, and the ongoing worship of our species forever and ever.
For many women though, Mother's day is just the day they all rub your nose in it, publicly. Thinking, but not saying:
are superior to you. Now let me tell you about the birth again..."
The onslaught of which has only one rational response:
Another thing. If your mother does not feel loved and appreciated every day, then one of you is a total fuck up. Hard for me to say which from here.

She did her job, and a damn good one too. Youd have hardly known Id had a lump removed from that breast. Too bad they have to go in again and get the rest of it.
Cause it wasn't what they 'thought' it was. And Im extraordinarily lucky that their 'thought' won't cost me my life. This time anyway.
Moral of the story is this: if you think there is something wrong, and your GP just keeps telling you to "not worry so much", GET ANOTHER OPINION - fast.

The right eye is called Oculus Dexter.
