Kingsley is beyond exhausted, tired, bored, needs sleep. Its 10pm and we’re out as a family to celebrate γιαγια’ς 80th. The adults are loud, obnoxious, dismissive and in the main ignite my ire and Kingsley’s boredom. The only moments of sanity for the child are: walking Frank, going for an adventure on the beach with Aleka and strolling with me. But its not enough when surrounded by buffoon adults.
Then the saving grace: candles and sparklers come atop a chocolate birthday cake. We sing happy birthday finally! And the child blows out all the candles.
