Childhood Dreams


Imagine childhood dreams coming true.

Figure this.

I’ve been alive for 16,598 days, or 1,434,139,521 seconds (…522… 523…). Since day dot, Beatles music has reverberated through my home.

Now, imagine this.

Tomorrow, I get to see a Beatle!

What more can I say to convey how big this is in my life other than OH. MY. GOD. This is significant.

This is one of those times when I need to refrain from writing in great depth about how I feel, because I will be put in a straight jacket and subdued with a stun gun for my love of The Beatles.

But please, allow me to let it out just a little…

  • Beatles music gets me high.
  • Their lyrics range from simplistic beauty “I Want To Hold Your Hand” to psychedelic genius “Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds” to not giving a shit because they were breaking up “I Dig a Pony” and it was all fantastic!
  • I grew up in a Beatles mad family and our after-school ‘play’ time was putting a Beatles record on the stereogram and mimicking their moves whilst miming the words.
  • To while away the time during school holidays, I re-wrote every lyric from every Beatle song I could get my hands on.

Okay, that’s enough.

Tomorrow my childhood dream is coming true and I get to see a Beatle.

Yeah, yeah, yeah.
