A dropped cup has chipped a tile, but this is small, and a cup can easily be replaced. Nothing here worth writing about.
Two years ago, for a similar topic I wrote from our son’s perspective. Since many to the group are new, I could read this as my contribution. But surely there is something else.
I can remember being upset about broken…somethings. I cannot remember what they were though. So maybe not important somethings.
We do have a few small items that have been broken, and fixed. There is a salt keeper that we bought in Austria, which was a pity. It has been glued together and is now an ornament. But it was not me who broke it.
There might have been a broken heart left behind. There were some teenage relationships where I was the one to bring about the break up. I am not convinced that anyone was left devastated by a break up of the relationship.
Breaking of records – no. I have never been particularly athletic, so no records broken there. I might have been the best in the “class” but cannot consider this a broken record.
There is of course the concept of a break down. And I have had a car break down – three times, probably from the same underlying cause. This was all around the cooling system of my first car, a Renault 10, back in the early 70s. Which of the issues was the underlying cause I doubt anyone could confirm. But the three issues were perished hoses causing leaks resulting in overheating, a blown head gasket and broken water pump. The head gasket problem occurred on a trip from Melbourne to Adelaide with several friends. There were 2-3 cars heading over for the weekend. We did not make it, while the others continued without us. The water pump problem occurred on a trip to Sydney. We got as far as Chiltern, but at the time did not know the Hume Highway, and ended up with the RACV from Albury. This was the end of our Sydney trip while we waited for a replacement water pump.
So maybe I could say that I broke my car, three times!
