I need a break. Just some time with no one hanging off me, asking me to do stuff, to have to think for in terms of eating, showering and not doing stupid shit like climbing everything in sight.
Just a moment to be by myself. Alone, with my thoughts or, ideally, no thoughts at all.
My tether is nearing its end.
I have been subject to a variety of movies that are aimed squarely at the pre-teen audience, or loaded with shooting, banging, blood, decapitations and, well, yes, ok, rather sexy voiced and well buffed me.
But that’s not the point!
I want to live vicariously through some 30-something, unmarried, childless woman who makes me laugh.
