How Rude… Im English

Hi,

So I was casually outside,  in town and I heard/saw a woman singing opera songs. Now for Oxford that’s pretty weird. I decided to sit down and film it,  well her..in a non creepy way. After about a minute the opera woman started to attract a small crowd and amoung the crowd was a evil middle aged woman. Ok let me explain…

Firstly she looked at me evilly for filming the opera singer, even though other people were also filming her.

Secondly check out this conversation between her and I,  she was stood on my right and the wind was blowing from the right, she was smoking:
ME: excuse me,  sorry but could you possibly smoke on the other side,  its just that the winds blowing this way and the smokes blowing into my face.

HER: No I can smoke where I goddam like. *insert more evil looks* you don’t belong in this bloody country anyway,  if you don’t like it leave.
Me:…

Guys I’m quite a polite person so naturally I didn’t say anything back to that remark but how can someone in this day and age have the nerve to tell someone else they don’t belong here. I was born in England, London and moved to Oxford at the age of 9… I’m probably more British than she is,  however as I’m not white she assumes ” I don’t belong in this country (England) ” now I could sort of understand if she were 80 and “set in her ways” not that an 80 year old telling me I don’t belong here would hurt less, but the woman wasn’t,  this woman could not have been older than 40.

And thirdly,  second hand smoking is just as bad as smoking (I’m not judging people who do) if you are standing next to anyone be it a child,  an adult,  an elderly person or an alien its common courtesy to move if you are smoking. Its not that hard to do and just shows other people that you are actually capable of caring about your fellow human beings.

Let me know what you think

So Hello … Part 1

Todays topic in blogging101 is to write to your dream reader and I can’t tell you how much I actually love this idea. I watched a video yesterday and a comment about frogs made me want to write this post instead. So I’m writing a letter to you.

———————————————————————————————————————————————————————-

So hello,

You, yes you hey I’ve actually been waiting for you to drop by, and I was patient and now here you are. So firstly how are you? good I hope. I don’t know you yet and you don’t know me YET but you will. You might have brown hair or blonde hair, oh I have brown hair although you know that, or at least you will. You should know that I’m extremely sarcastic and I constantly have my head in the clouds, I feel like you’ll be the same. You’re smart and you know I’m always right, you know me better than I do, and visa versa. You’ll have little annoying habits like biting your nails or whistling. But I’ll put up with them as long as you put up with my constant singing and the way I strum my guitar when I get annoyed. We’ll spend countless hours having dinner, talking and just passing the time. We both love Chinese food and the supernatural and you’ll want to explore, travel and try new things with me. Your funny, enthusiastic and passionate about a certain things. We love music and go to the cinema at least once a month. You judge me because I drink a lot of herbal tea but I tell you that its much better than coffee. . Although I don’t know who you are or where you are yet, there’s comfort in knowing you are out there. So keep an eye out for a clumsy girl and I’ll see you soon…

P.S  Its not like I’ll get jealous or anything, but umm try not to date too many people…

———————————————————————————————————————————————————————-

So if you haven’t already guessed that was a letter to my future boyfriend/husband, I couldn’t get the idea out of my head for some reason so I just decided to run with it. I hope you find the post both humours and sweet if not then leave a comment saying ” Gooey much?” but in all seriousness I’ll be doing another one of these soon , If you want me to write about a certain subject let me know

See You Soon x,
