The Five Types of Meat You Get in HeavenTop Story - November 2023
Note: my head has been in a weird place over the last few days. I have just lost my godmother after a very long illness, and even though it was not a surprise, I am still getting used to a world without her love, attitude...and wicked sense of humour. I had this in a notebook for quite a while, and I needed a laugh at the exact moment when I rediscovered it this morning. The title of Mitch Albom's book was perfect for a parody...

A pleasant neighbourhood café, he thought. Nothing about it too pretentious and maybe…just maybe…not too expensive? He looked at the tables and chairs in the dim light. Mid-afternoon, and there was still plenty of space (strange for a Friday?). And the line was not too long at the counter. Three schoolkids – did he know those uniforms – and the usual screenplay writers who would not write a damn thing… He knew the type.
Advertising Copy: Here is the newest addition for the modern home: the modern rotary connection device. Arriving at our offices after a long and detailed discussion over form, features and price, we decided that what you really need is a communication device that will not disappear when you most need it; will be available in one specific location in the home; and will be available for generations to come!
It was a very bad the idea to have a meeting with her after class, but there was still the janitorial staff in the college, and they were sure to pass by the room soon. He looked at the clock over the door and wondered if this would take long. His worst student wanted to talk to him after class; his worst student who also happened to be the one that the guys went all dumb and drooled over.
“Not a fan. No. I first heard her when she was in the Sugarcubes, and I thought that it was kind of cute, but her voice just put me off. Not a fan. I mean there were some fun songs from them at the time. I liked ‘Birthday’ and ‘Delicious Demon’, and there was that last one I heard before I they broke up. I was in school and my boyfriend loved it when we danced at a club to it. And then she went solo. Not a fan… And then she started doing all that dance music. My boyfriend brought home ‘Debut’ and I did not think it was her until I heard that ‘Venus as a Boy’ thing and…he said that he wanted to see other people. And then she put out that video of her dancing in the street. So fake. Not a fan at all. Yeah, I know she had that swan dress and that people thought she was really cool and edgy, but I was just bored. And no, I ain’t going to the show she’s got at that gallery. Still not a fan…
'Okay, I've got the one contract in about three hours and there is the marking I should finish up with the college and what about the class that they promised me on Wednesdays and Fridays starting this month, like it is already November and they said that I had a good chance of getting at least one more private one online and maybe in class (they pay more, she said), oh god, why do I do this to myself when I have free time and there is nothing else to do but have the guitar around and play and check those scales again and it seems like it needs to be re-tuned but that can wake and what about the weather today I should probably go for another run and see if the pain in my right calf is gone for good - some ibuprofen would help; do I have any right now? - it would probably be a good idea to read something now and then have something ready for dinner before I went out the kitchen is a real mess and there isn't much in the cupboards right now...
