That reminds me of my mother.
Don’t be out gallivanting all night, you’ve school tomorrow.
I’d go to the café, meet Froggy and Chester, nurse a Coke for three hours.
She and Froggy are long gone.
When in Scotland, I visit Chester.
We still don’t gallivant.

    Who taught our mothers the meaning of the word gallivant. It seems I’ve always known it. I never use it, until now. Love listening to you read.


  3. Happy memories with a tinge of sadness. Nice one

    My mother also used to tell me not to go gallivanting all night… Hmmm.

  5. There is gallivanting that involves little physical roaming about, I find …
    Well done!


  6. That’s cool you embed an audio of you reading it too!


  7. Dear CE,

    Love that this didn’t exactly take you out gallivanting. Lovely story with a wistful tone.
