Oridinal writing - "Dad how long before we get home?" I asked.

Extracts from this document...


"Nelson" ............ "New York" ........... "Nairobi" My brothers and I had been going on for ages, we were naming cities beginning with different letters, we had already done footballers and cricketers, we had even tried family members but after number 153.5 (our cousin was pregnant) it just was not fun. Being bored and having nothing to do can make you do very courageous or as in this case very stupid things. "Dad how long before we get home?" I asked. Big mistake, never interrupt my dad during a conversation especially when he is talking politics.

Whilst my dad had been driving he had his hand outside of the car this wasn't unusual in Pakistan because it is very hot and humid. When the car had crashed the glass from the broken windscreen had apparently got into his arm. Days later we were still finding pieces of glass in his arm someone had not done their job properly. My family still does not talk about that evening, much but from time to time I find my dads watch which he wore that day. It looks back at me and says don't forget what happened at 6:20 pm on the 29th of August 1995. ...read more.
