Cried while buying perfume. For dad.
BackstoryI only see my parents once year (usually for Christmas). The distance is too expensive to bridge more often (I live in Europe, they live in the Caribbean).
Today I was buying my dad's Xmas present -it's always the same after-shave (his favourite) and it lasts him precisely a year. I'm the one who always buy it for him.
As I was queuing to pay, I found myself fighting the tears.
I miss him so much!
Monday I will finally be home for Christmas eve, and I'm sure I'll cry again.
