Deb­bie the Soc­cer Mum laid care­ful plans so she could at­tend a friend’s grad­u­a­tion from JCU last week. Hav­ing made ar­range­ments for the pick up of kids, and vow­ing to make their din­ner later on, she set off in a limo to col­lect a few “girl­friends” to help cel­e­brate with the grad­u­at­ing stu­dent. It’s a long story but on fast for­ward it would look like this: drinks in limo on empty stom­ach, drinks in func­tion venue, run in with “un­rea­son­able” se­cu­rity guard over sand­wich, need for more drinks so hike around Cairns wharf district to find some, lost, phone friend for help, re­turn to venue and more drinks, run in with tooth­less psy­chic from Ku­randa and dis­cov­ery of un­ex­pected spir­i­tual bond to be fol­lowed up later, re­al­i­sa­tion her phone is miss­ing, more drinks in limo on way home, messy ar­rival, too late to make din­ner for kids, sleep on couch, re­morse for ac­cus­ing hus­band of hav­ing lost her phone, sober rev­e­la­tion about phone where­abouts, hus­tle around to the venue first thing be­fore open­ing time even and plead­ing with se­cu­rity guard to be let in, re­trieval of phone left on a charger at the venue, kids dropped off at school.
