August 5th, 1990
Just got home from seeing David Bowie at the Milton Keynes Bowl, which was amazing. Millie and I, along with tens of thousands of other fans, screamed like teenagers when Bowie appeared onstage and sang along to all our favourite songs. When he sang, “Life on Mars,” Millie burst into tears and said she’d never forget this night.
When we got back, mum said I’d missed a call from Daivd, so I plopped myself in the phone chair and promptly rang him back.
“Hi, how was the concert?”
“You sound hoarse.”
“I’m surprised I still have a voice.”
I watched through the glass wall as mum and Millie chatted up a storm in the kitchen and thought about how different life will be when I move into my new house.
“Karen? You still there?”
“Yeah, sorry about that.”
“I miss you.”
“I miss you too.”
“I love you.”
“I love you too.”
David Bowie is cool, but David M might be the guy I marry.
