Letter To My Mojo – Sunday Supplement

I have lost my Mojo!

I have become a flat, one dimensional, rather dull version of myself. I’m not sure what happened. Maybe my ill health of last few weeks has taken it’s toll.

Just the other day I was happily skidding across the shiny kitchen floor in a shirt and socks a la Tom Cruise in Risky Business.* Today finds me mooching around the house complaining that the sun is “too bright”, mornings are too “morningy” and watching the TV shopping channel thinking, “Hmmm, a bug catching, cobweb cleaning back scratcher is just what I need.”

Did my Mojo just wake up one day, take a good look at the mad life I lead and think, “This is a bit pants, I’m off!” Did it need a break? Is it, as I type, lying on a beach somewhere sipping ice cold Mojitos and topping up its tan?

So, my dearest Mojo, wherever you are I hope you can get Wi-Fi because this if for you:

Writing a letter to my Mojo

Dear Mojo

I hope this letter finds you well. I would like to say that I am fine but I wish you were here – I am incomplete without you.

No more do I dance around the house singing tunelessly just to wind up Mr Chic. No more do I tease the postman by lurking near the front door and pushing the letters back through the letterbox.

Remember the time that we donned our leather trousers, clipped LED lights to our glasses and insisted that we should be called 3 of 6 all day**. Or the time we bought that fab, long, black coat and leather boots and “Matrixed” everywhere?***

Ah, happy days.

We can have those times again, my lovely Mojo. I promise never to take you for granted. I will allow you free reign and never try to control your enthusiasm – even if you feel the urge to start a ‘flash mob’ without the mob. I promise to indulge you.

So please come home for, without you, I am not me.

Yours sincerely



* If you don’t get this Google – Tom Cruise, Risky Business, kitchen scene.

** If you don’t get this Google – Star Trek, Borg, 7 of 9. (By the way, where have you been?)

*** If you don’t get this Google – Matrix, Trinny, black outfit. (Again, where have you been? These are classics people! Or maybe I’m a sad, film geek.)

      I don’t get that many shares, so I decided to ask for them – in my own unique way 🙂
