So today I had to go and take my daughter to the airport to hand her over to her father for the school holidays. He was dressed in a cowboy shirt, jeans and cowboy boots. He sauntered up to us and drawled “Howdy y’all” in
a poorly executed an American accent. Surrounded by busy professionals, backpackers and Japanese tourists the overall effect was rather incongruous. Like someone had done an amateur job of photoshopping a cowboy into the scene to highlight the juxtaposition of the past and present in my life.
He has never been to America.
We live in Australia.
That is all.
