It turns out that Sydney, the little impala who was orphaned when his mum was bitten by a black mamba snake is tougher than I thought.
After being kept in a barn to protect him from leopards, baboons and pythons, he was moved to an outdoor pen. But sensing life was getting a little dull, he leapt over the high fence with a cyclone approaching and decided to do some exploring. However, his first encounter with zebras was nearly his last.
After seeing him wandering alone in the bush, they chased him around the game reserve, eventually cornering him by the swimming pool. But instead of backing down, little Sydney attempted to kick out at them to defend himself. Not impressed, the zebras head butted him into the pool. Thankfully, the lodge manager who witnessed the entire event was there to pull him out of the water.
It’s now fallen to all of us to counsel the little man through his sudden loss of confidence. Thankfully there's still plenty left in the tank. And here, as always, refuelling with the bottle makes everything better…
OMG. The power of music and song that can lift the human spirit - grab a cuppa and enjoy and then share with your kids please! http://www.pharside.co.uk/videos/africa-like-youve-never-heard-it-before-mind-blown-video/
"If I killed myself tonight, the stars would still appear, the sun would still come out, the Earth would still rotate, the seasons would still change... so why not?"
Fuck this. Fuck this phrase so much.
Do not tell me your best mate would not sit on their couch for three fucking days just staring blankly at where you'd always sit wishing you were there to fill the space with laughter.
Do not tell me your brother or sister would not break down in the middle of school, work, the shops, anywhere, because someone started talking about your favourite things you used to do together.
Do not tell me your mother and father would not stare in the mirror with trembling lips wishing they could be bringing you home from the hospital rather than having to escort you away in a coffin to the cemetery.
Do not tell me your partner, husband or wife would not go into your room and put on the last jumper you wore trying to desperately imprint your scent onto their skin so they never forget your smell.
Do not tell me your friends and colleagues will not stare blankly at the wall after the Sergeant has announced your death to the entire station, making no sound and trying to convince themselves this is just another one of your impractical jokes.
DO NOT fucking TELL ME this bullshit line of how the stars would would still appear, the sun would still come out, the Earth would still rotate and the seasons would still change because without YOU you lil beautiful piece of human being, none of these people will want ANY of that to happen.
