The Musings Of An Opinionated Sod [Help Me Grow!]

If I Was A Spy, This Would Be The Most Easily Broken Code, Ever …

A few weeks you came up to me and said some stuff I never saw coming.

Stuff that caught me totally and utterly unawares.

Stuff that was ridiculous in it’s positivity, generosity and belief.

It made more of an impression on me than you’d ever know.

In those few minutes, you managed to make me feel both pride and humility.

That might sound over-emotional claptrap, but it’s true.

I’ll let you into a secret, the reason I didn’t look you in the eye when you were talking to me is because the words you said made me want to cry.

Not sad tears, but happy.

OK … and pathetic ones.

But the fact is, having someone I respect – and like – express such faith in me was unbelievably amazing and an utter honour.


I have no idea if I can see through what you asked me to reconsider, but if I do, you’re one of the reasons I would.

I can’t say that about many people, but you’re definitely one of them.

Thank you for that.

But no guarantees.

to prove this is all a big dollop of fucking shite let me bring your attention to the words “someone i respect and like”. you dont even respect or like yourself campbell. the prosecution rests their case.

Are all the posts you write going to be this shit? Maybe you need another holiday to snap out of it.

You sound just like a member of the Italian armed forces. (Sorry Mrs C, just a joke)

Yes … sorry about that, I wrote it a while back when I was in an overly sentimental mood. It’s a bit sickening even for me. If it’s any consolation – which it won’t be, but it’s worth a try – I write a few genuinely pissed off blog posts later and the word “cry” isn’t mentioned once. Promise.
