Re: Rafachat - Vol. 80: Always by Rafa's side on the way to clay & hard court dominan

Had the worst week ever. Dad burst his appendix on thursday and had to be in hospital for 3 days. Took him home today and on the way had a slight car accident which will cost me $600 in insurance excess. Fuck my life.

I don't like speculoos. Which in any case sounds like a medical procedure, not something you eat.

That's indeed tough luck, leng jai. Is your dad doing okay now?

I forgive you for not liking speculoos, waffles and *gasp* preferring Dutch chocolate.

There are so many different sort of waffles. I'm totally convinced that if you don't like waffles, it means that you haven't tasted the right sort of waffle. I prefer vanilla waffles.

Speculoos is not to be disliked. There are different kinds of speculoos/speculaas, though. The sweeter sort of speculoos made by Lotus is a masterpiece. It's as simple as that: you're a dolt if you don't like speculoos. Have it with a cup of lemon tea and you have a perfect experience. However, the sandwich spread based on speculoos is vile. You need to eat the cookie directly on white bread with a bit of butter. Forget the speculoos paste.

Preferring Dutch chocolate is

I bet scoobs prefers Dutch chocolate as well. I mean, IIRC; the man loves "drop". Says enough really.

What? I hate drop. It is nasty!

I wear my dolthood like a badge of honour, in any case.

Ah, you don't like drop. You're not totally hopeless then.

Football:
Romelu Lukaku made his debut for Everton and scored the winning goal with a header. The problem is that he not only hit the ball but also the head of another player. The ball went in but Lukaku dropped on the ground and lost conciousness for a few seconds. Later, he said that he doesn't remember making the goal.

When a guy loses conciousness, I'd think it's wiser to take him off the pitch and let a doctor check him out properly but he was sent back on pitch to play the rest of the match.

Speculoos is ok, stroopwafels tend to be too heavy on the stomach though

If it's any consolation, it can be worse, much worse, believe me. If that was your worst week ever.

This is the only place I feel safe. So much hatred on Rafa, I just don't understand.

Another royal wedding this weekend, in Luxemburg this time.

Andreea, do you like her dress?


I'm not keen on it. Too much lace for starters .
