With the passing of time, comes change and there has been a lot of changes over the years since I was a knee high little ankle biter.
Things you take for granted disappear and come back re-named as something else.
Opal Fruits and Snickers bars
I don’t care if it shows my age, they’re always going to be Opal Fruits to me. None of this Starburst nonsense, thank you very much. The same goes for you, so called Snickers bars.
What on earth is a Snickers supposed to BE, anyway? Naming it Marathon at least made some kind of sense from an advertising point of view.
“Hey, guys, eat this delicious chocolate bar packed full of nuts and chocolate and YOU TOO can run for miles.”
With a Snickers bar, though? Hmm, not so much.
Yeah, I used to have one. A skinny one. Now it seems to have disappeared, along with my last remaining shred of willpower.
Maybe I should eat a Marathon and then go for a run…….
my caffeine intake
Needed to prise my eyes open in a morning. With no vat of tea inside me in a morning and copious top up throughout the day, they’d remain firmly shut and my head would be permanently filled with cotton wool.
Actually, that sounds the same regardless of tea intake.
What’s changed since you were small?
