May = 05
What is your favourite flower? Now that is tough as I love so many. Favourite may have to be the tulip.
How do you finish the phrase April showers? April showers bring May flowers and now how does your garden grow….
Were your thoughts of your mother on Mother’s Day positive? Yes my thoughts of my mother were very positive. My thoughts of my Mother on Mother’s day were thankful thoughts. Grateful thoughts of how my Mother is always loving and fair and kind and good. Thoughts of how people always say I am such a good mother and I think ‘But I had a wonderful mother so it isn’t a far stretch that I would be a good one too.’
Do you celebrate May Day? I don’t celebrate May Day at all. Not even a little bit. If I am lucky to be here next year maybe I will make myself a little posy.
‘Princess of May’ anyone? Uh huh. Shit yeah. I went to a Catholic School and when I was in Grade 2, I was picked to be Princess of May because I was the best at religion. I got to wear a white dress (like a communion dress) and went in a procession. There was a girl picked to represent her grade and it was a big deal. My father came to watch; my mother couldn’t because she suffered with agoraphobia. My father was to take pictures with the video camera and to this day it totally fucking irritates me because you see a procession of young girls coming out just like fairies and then up the camera goes to follow a small plane. When the camera comes back down after however many minutes, the procession is done and so is the tape. Fuck Dad (miss you and love you).
