I should have taken the time.
Finally it´s here, the beginning of my way to short vacation. I know I we have more vacation here in Sweden than most other places on this little planet of ours but it still feels way to short. We have a saying here that “much wants more” and I guess that´s right 🙂 🙂
I have dropped my mosquito hat somewhere when we were out walking and even if I can guess where it is I just can´t go there without a mosquito hat 🙂 🙂 So I drove by the little town Skara to the discount store that is placed by the edge of town. It´s the only place I know they sell these hats. I couldn´t find them at first and walked around in the isles and I´m glad I did. I found mosquito nets for doors and windows as well. So I bought two for the windows (so I can have three windows open hot days) and one for a door 🙂
While walking around in the store someone started to talk to me. I turned around and saw one of the less beautiful transexuals I´ve ever seen (even I that know nothing about makeup could have some tips, using a bra would have been another tip I could have given 🙂 🙂 ). She started to talk about where one could find old fashioned soda crates so she could place all the LP´s, singles and EP`s she just had bought (several thousands). I realized that this conversation had nothing to do with crates what so ever, she was just very lonely. It can´t be easy to live in a small town where everyone knows everything about You.
I always feel sorry for those feeling they have been born in the wrong gender. Even those that go through with a total surgery seems unhappy in life. If people finds out they always risk of getting beaten by men that “knows how things should be” and if they should find someone to love they still risk to be left alone if they tell.
So we talked a little bit about all the records she recently had bought and I was thinking that she had to have a warehouse to get them all in to one place 🙂 🙂 🙂 But I needed to find those mosquito hats before the last ones was sold (they thought they only had two left You see) and I hurried away on my search (and now I feel that I could have stayed longer really, who knows how many that wants to talk to her again). I never felt the urge to hit her because I really don´t know how things should be. I just hope she found someone else to talk with for a minute or two.
On my way home I stopped by a gardencentre and bought two fuchsias for half the price. They need a lot of pruning but they will look nice after a while, but the most important plant I bought was a Nepethes. It eats flies 🙂 🙂 and on the end of each leaf it creates a jug (filled with something like stomach fluid). This attracts flies and the edge of every jug is so slippery that flies falls in to it. I sold some of those plants to farmers when I had my gardencentre and they work very well 🙂
Our walk was a bit of a pain actually. No wind, rather warm and around a quadrillion with mosquitoes and horse flies. They say we most possibly will get thunder here later today and by the way these insects behaved I would say that we most possibly will. Tomorrow however the sun will come back again and life will be so much easier 🙂
It´s time for something to eat with that pot of tea that I´ve just made. I would like to stay up all night now but I already feel so tired that I most probably will go to bed earlier than usual 🙂 🙂 🙂 Have a great day!
