A Usain Bolt* Day ?   1 comment

An *Extra Fast day today!

A few extra fast hours, to be honest/exact. Having decided to wait to have some food until after my interview at 1100h……….it was more than an informal 30-45 minutes. So, after a long chat, tours, waiting “5 minutes” for somebody who was tied up with a visitor……I didn’t leave until 1300h, then spent 2 hours and 10 minutes driving the 6 miles back to home.

Most of this was stuck or crawling along the M32 between junctions 1 and 2 without an oatcake or even a bottle of water in sight!! A “police incident” apparently**. I soon got past the I’m Hungry Mummy! stage and just enjoyed the feeling of pleasant emptiness, not the gnawing pains which, I suppose, might be experienced – I might have to try a full fast for a few days to get there?

I’m now thinking about what to eat once the break-fast of 2 bananas has worn off. Trouble is, I don’t really feel like eating…….which is very interesting, given that [at the same time] I’m feeling like stuffing my face. I suppose that’s what we call “being in two minds” ?

 

**STOP PRESS!!  [writing this 13Sep12]  I found out the following day that the “incident” [I love the understated way we talk about things!] was a man threatening to jump off a bridge onto the M32………..

……..then yesterday another young gentleman decided to do the same – so the motorway was closed again….AND I just missed the huge tailback, because I’d gone up to the B&Q Warehouse to check out prices!! Phew!
