On… things that I find surprisingly difficult 2 Replies Writing addresses on envelopes. (It’s just so boring.) Remembering numbers of more than one digit. (Ask me to remember anything over nine and I stare into space like an inbred lapdog, drooling and panting.) Answering simple questions when I’m writing. (“What? I don’t… In the drawer. I mean… oh. The bus.”) Choosing anything but pork belly when it is on the menu. (It’s just so good. So good.) Selecting a cocktail that isn’t vodka-based. (Look, it gets the job done.) Sleeping in past 6.30am. (I have the bodyclock of a baker.) Understanding the charms of nature in any meaningful way. (“Oh, it’s leafy. Awesome.”) Understanding the charms of organised sport in any meaningful way. (“Oh, it’s a ball. Awesome.”) Wearing a colour that isn’t white, black, grey, navy or red. (Seriously, I’m like a small French child in a storybook.) Letting go of my lucky yellow clutch*, both emotionally and sartorially. (Readers of The Dating Detox will understand.) Knowing where my phone is at any given time. (Really. That thing is like Ferris Bueller. It just takes off whenever it feels like it. It is probably driving around Chicago right now in a red convertible with a hypochondriac and a chick called Sloane.) * I will happily wear a hint of yellow. Ditto hot pink or electric blue. But only a hint.
