Just a quick note today. I was chatting with a work colleague who I guess is of a similar vintage to me, and we were talking about how wonderful things like ice-cream taste when you’re a kid.
We started reminiscing about various food items and brands we remembered growing up, and my colleague casually asked “How old are you?” “61” I replied. “Great, she said, so you’ll remember…” and off we went on another trip down memory lane.
I can’t tell you how relaxing it was to have a normal exchange with someone whose reaction to finding out my age was not to rear back like a startled horse and say “Oh, but you don’t look it”, “Wow I would never have guessed” and similar remarks, as if I’m hiding some deep dark secret.
It’s not even that I look particularly young for my age I don’t think, it’s just that to younger folk, anything over 60 sounds positively ancient and unlikely to be found in plain sight in the workplace!
Ah well. What’s your favourite food memory from childhood?
