Yesterday I read a post in which the blogger reminisced about old TV programmes like Night Rider, Buck Rogers, MacGyver, Airwolf etc.
I thought about it again as I started to make my way home after work. It struck me that I do not have a hero and I really felt like I should have one... like when I was little. I mean, Buck Rogers and Steve Austin - Die Man van Staal (The Six Million Dollar Man) – they were my ultimate heroes.
When did I stop having heroes and why?
Why should it be different now that I am nearly 38? I thought about it long and hard, and the issue really bothered me a lot. I then decided from now on I am going to have heroes again and I chose the 1st 3. In no particular order I chose as follows:
- Riaan Cruywagen. He has been reading the news since I was pre-school. I promise. All you Saffers will know that I am not exaggerating. He is such a gentleman, with his stupid jokes at the end of the news and all, and his slightly too green eye make-up and his toupee. I mean, like how old is he?
- Miles Vorkosigan. My favourite SciFi character from my favourite SciFi author – Lois McMaster Bujold. One cannot describe Miles, you have to read the books.
- Natalie du Toit. For obvious reasons.
What purpose will it serve for me having heroes? I don’t know, but I feel better for having heroes again...
What about everybody else? Do you still have heroes?
