Morality is the theory that every human act must be either right or wrong, and that 99 percent of them are wrong.
Another cloudy day in Hobart. New Town, July 2010.
The was once a time when I very rarely got ill. Tired, yes. Bored, indeed. Disenchanted, abso-bloody-lutely. But sick? Hardly ever. Nary a sniffle.
Then I had children.
Since they arrived, scarcely a month goes by without a headache, temperature, sore throat, runny nose, trots or generalised pain. I’m not sure if they’re cursed, or they’re out to get me.
Either way, I think they’ve won.
