“It’s the beginning of spring in the land of the kangaroos and koalas. Everyone is celebrating.
The QVB is decorated with carton and plastic flowers (because the real thing doesn’t last as long), and purple, red, and blue lights. There is music, champagne -for the ones old enough to drink-, and ,of course, a lot of people. Sales in every store, although personally I never see them NOT having a sale. My brothers were winging so we started to leave. I didn’t mind, but it would be nice if I could stay and enjoy it a little more because I wouldn’t see it again in the near future. Oh well, there’s always next spring.”
-Well, by now it’s ‘was’. Whatever. First spring, EVER.
