Un-Happy Birthday

So, apparently, Goths can have children.

It's a reproductive, rather than Gothic process. It has rather more to do with the SEX thing as opposed to the lipstick, although the 'make-up' can help in certain circumstances.

However, it is 14 years since mini-Goth appeared on this planet, and thus 15 years since virginity jumped out of the plane without a parachute.

I had hoped that the anniversary was going to be a spectacular event. Goth was not disappointed by the fireworks....

"I hate you", he announced, with subtle undertones.

"That's what birthdays are for" I replied, in a melancholic, but slightly despondent way.

Then I woke up, and I was on the plane....

Gifts had been purchased, flights organised, hotels booked - etc.

Like Britney and her Spears said - 'Ooops I fucked up again', in a rehabilitation, losing the plot and losing your hair type way.

The conception of it seemed so simple really......

Fuck it - rain-check.....

A: Travel to the United Kingdom of Stupidity
B: See Mini-Goth and say Happy Birthday
C: See Mini-Gothess and say hello
D: See Mrs Ex-Goth and say nothing
E: xplain why I cannot ever walk backwards and why.

Except, it didn't quite work that way. In fact, it couldn't have gone more 'pear-shaped' if I'd had a market stall tossing pork at the muslims, yelling "Catch !! Hotdog" - in a vegan way.

Consequently, I fucked up Mini-Goths birthday.

It wasn't intentional but, I will take all the blame for it being shit, in a "My dad fucked it up" sort of way.

The worst part is, it's not so much what I did, but what I didn't do.

I bet you didn't out-FU my old man, who got the three of us thrown out of the Savoy Hotel on my 21st birthday. To add insult to injury he shouted "I've been thrown out of better places than this" as he went through the revolving door.

It went downhill from that point on.
