Last night I took in my first ever Australian Football League (or AFL… or Aussie rules… or footy) game at the Melbourne Cricket Grounds (or the MCG… or the G).
Notice a pattern here?
Over the course of a lifetime, we build a collection and label it “Important.” Important People. Important Ideas. Important Items. Important Places.
I never would have guessed that Australia – and, more specifically, a quaint little oceanside town of 8,000 Victorians – would become an Important Place.
This weekend I’ll be taking in my first Australian music festival: Golden Plains X. We’ll pack our swag (sleeping bag) and esky (cooler) into the boot (trunk) of the car and make tracks to the Meredith Supernatural Amphitheatre – the Sup.
I swear that one day I’ll get handle on all this Aussie slang; unfortunately, however, today is not that day.
