I WILL PREVIVE [The Book Of Baps] diary extract, 19 May 2017


“Today marks 6 weeks since exchange surgery. Hip hop hooray! The 6 week mark always seems to be the medical start of normality. You are allowed to do anything and everything at this milestone. (I lay on my tummy for a good few minutes last night. Didn’t hurt. But I’m waiting for all the bruising to go before I try to sleep like that.) Most of the green lights refer to housework in my view (apart from swimming if you are lucky enough to have a house with a pool): VAC/MOP/LIFT.

Boring!!! It’s all down there. Down there on the floor. Which coincidentally is exactly where I’ll be later today – on the art gallery floor putting my words out into the air, hoping they’ll fly, not die. I’ve got a general idea of what I’ll be talking about. (CHANGE THE RECORD, LOVE!!!) But I wrote myself some notes just in case I get lost on a tangent as is so often the case. Be nice to me because I go red easily! So here my well practised homegirl. It’s Jennifer Lopez. She on the floor.”
