Emma returned safely from Spain, and is in love with Tim, a fellow traveller. Tim is also 15, very good-looking, humorous, articulate, in the highest flow of the education stream and wants to be a doctor. Sometimes people try to keep guys away from thier daughters with sticks and insect repellant. Others are looking for ways to nail them down. Unfortunately Tim lives in Amsterdam, so quality time is limited and there is much telephone and MSN traffic in Spanish. Still, absense makes the heart grow fonder.
Lisa really looking forward to take-off and not looking at all worried
Denise and Emz on the other hand showing fearful apprehension
Since we had not really done much in the holiday, we decided that, while Bernadet needed beurocracy-bashing time with Irene, the rest of us would go to Walibi World. It was not my intention to spend the day being flung around in very dubious whirly contructions, nor dangled from great heights and allowed to drop towards the earth at an acceleration of 32 ft per second squared.
Nothing will ever persuade me to do this
I would take a bedding mat and a good thick book and find a piece of grass to happily sag onto, stirring only for a fresh coffee or a pee. It did not work out that way, as without me we formed an odd number, and thus someone would have to sit on their own.
Cousins Merel and Denise
Thus did Thijs, Merel, Denise, Emma, Lisa and myself venture forth to sample the ironmongery. The bedding roll and the book went into a locker and a fun day was had by all.
Ride him, cowgirl
Lisa, Emz and ageing git
Since Merel had to be at work at the Pet Department at 6 pm, we left early and sped home, stopping only to partake of supper at McDonalds, opting for poisonous hamburgers and some chemicals through a straw.
