I knew in a moment
I would have to spend
The next few days
Re-arranging my mind
So there’d be room
For her to stay.”
(Nuks. Cheese mode!;)) Remembering how you were a bitty baby then… looking forward to mornings, preparing the milk in your bottle, helping you feed… it was one of the newer things I was at ease with.

The night in stills:

** Strolling in my 7 inch heels (orig. plan was just to sit through dinner; #ohwell); hanging with the cool&#8230; the military&#8217;s Brazilian Jujitsu trainers (&#8220;Giving orders to them, can your job get any meaner, manlier&#8230;?&#8221;, &#8220;We are somehow in the same line&#8230;&#8221;, &#8220;Nah. What I have to do, you have no idea.&#8221;) 

** Me, proving, easily, that I can swipe out an entire pizza pie, fries ++ [#longday!] Them, building / playing some pictionary from my crusts #hehehe&#8230; #best!

** Detouring; omw to #zzz but couldn&#8217;t miss the shameless #karaoke singing&#8230; So I headed to Rockbottom. Place was packed, I doubt it had anything to do with this Brit mate #rapping #iceicebaby to my ears, argh, &amp; there&#8230; Haha, #peaceout #GREATnight ๐Ÿ’ช๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŒŒ๐Ÿ•๐Ÿ˜ณ

8: &#8220;You&#8217;re ready.., but I don&#8217;t think you&#8217;re willing to let all this go just yet, you&#8217;re having too much fun.&#8221;

11: &#8220;Then I was in the middle of Nawara, someone reached over saying [&#8230;] That&#8217;s taboo, this crowd keeps an I&#8217;m-unattached status at a bold level. Most are high social climbers, but I could not care less whether I&#8217;m liked / disliked, I do what I have to regardless of their approval. So, the atmosphere semi paused when that happened, &amp; I calmly said, &#8220;nah, I&#8217;m leaving soon&#8221;. I had to do that! I got home, sat on the floor, &#8216;Aaah!&#8217; The more I see, the more interesting it gets &amp; you know what&#8217;s the best, #best, juiciest part (gulps water first &amp;&#8230;) &#8212;&#8221; #lol

“Before this, partied, 4 straight days, doesn’t happen often, but I can survive… Some trouble happened downstairs, #VIPRoomDubai, turned the sprinklers on, flooded chaos, crowd went mad… I got out of that soundly, sober, untouched, unfazed, all fine… Then I do grocery with you & in 4 mins., look, my hand’s bleeding. You’re not the safest person to hang with.”
