Run Back to You Over & Over

Go Get 'em!
Poori’s, family, friends and Bryan Adams. Coffee, lots of them.  What more could I ask for.  It was a fabulous concert, one I wouldn’t have missed in a lifetime; give me a chance,  I would run back to you for more. 

It was a good end to an ordinary week where extraordinary things made their way through.   A roller coaster, but that’s not new.  I had been awake some week nights counting hours instead of the stars, but this time not because I had over-shot the coffee limit. During the ride this week, one of conversations struck me dearly when a friend and team mate told me ‘It’s okay, you tried your best, don’t feel bad’.   Indeed, I had tried my best and so did all the rest.

Its all in the mix.
I became an instant BA fan the day I heard Please Forgive Me in 1993. Together with Under-Pressure, the two played a small role in helping my close university mates and me  scramble out of bed and push ourselves into the cold to get to classes on time.  When my assignments were almost turned in late, I spent a good amount of effort aiming to offer these two songs in return. The negotiation didn’t come through, the voice went silent and guilt over-ruled. I had no choice but to be on time. Coincidental winner!

And had I mentioned before about the two year self-imposed ban on coffee?  That is so true. The smell of coffee during the ban was so teasing and intoxicating but my good college mates helped ooze away the temptation to have a sip each time. And the paracetamols, boy did I pop up so many at that time. Caffeine withdrawal Syndrome, they called it. Bitter lesson my friends. Life is short, if you like coffee (or tea), just drink it. Don’t overdo it, anything in moderation is not harmful. 

This week will lead  us into the 2nd week of the Australian Open which reminds me that  if I want to have a decent warm-up game with my friend Libor someday, I got to call coach to the rescue soon. Coach is not going to be happy, I had been skipping sessions for a while and barely made it through the last endurance test. 

Preparation time. 

The Summer of ’69 is catchy tune, It got everyone in Stadium Malawati  electrified and on their their feet. January 21st 2017 will always be a sweet reminder that i 'd been there too, charged up,  on my feet, as I beam and tick off one more item from the list. 

Have a great week friends. :)
