Broken

I regained consciousness somewhere over northern Africa. I drank some water and passed out again.

I have had too much champagne and too much wine.

In my bag I had R30 left over from my last trip to South Africa in March. At Johannesburg there was only one thing to do with the money.

At 9am I nursed my aching hangover with a beer. It was cold. And it was bitter. Just heavenly.

I sat at Johannesburg International Airport in the same clothes from the day before, smelly, hungover and tired. Crusty and not having brushed my teeth for 12 hours.

Me. Broken.

But now I am here, 10,000 miles from London. I feel like the airforce, RAF.

Rough As Fuck but nearly home.

Haven't brushed your teeth in 12 hours?

Remind me not to kiss you.

Steven: It's now about 14 hours. Come and gissa kissy. Smooch. Smooch.
That's if you can get past the haze of alcohol in which I am enveloped.

You look like I did when I landed at Heathrow last month. And my flight was only 9 hours. My excuse wasn’t the alcohol, it was the “Damn it, this pill is not working…I know, I’ll take another…”(4 hours before landing).

Brought back memories of my hippie daze. I mean days.
