Saturday Centus … Forbidden fruit!

September 8, 2012

My father was not a communist rather more liberal, but believed that football like religion was the opium of the people. He could and expected his girls to find something better to do on a Saturday afternoon.  
My best friend´s dad was a strong supporter of the local team and each saturday he would go to the match.  When he returned; he would report back the antics of the football heroes to eager little girls.  When England won the World Cup in 1966;  I was as patriotic as the next girl.
‘Am I ready for some football ?’
I would say ‘No, now  the fun has gone’.

    Opium of the people. I loved that line.


    Sounds like you miss your Dad.

    Or at least your ‘first person’ does.

      “He” was a power presence in my early blogging days. I miss him.

      It used to be a Saturday prompt … on a particular topic 100 words … it was a good way to begin in the blogging world … don’t think it happens now.
