The Musings Of An Opinionated Sod [Help Me Grow!]


If There’s No Fool Like An Old Fool, I’m A Fucking Big Fool …

A couple of weeks ago, a colleague dropped off a package to my house.

For reasons too complicated to explain, I was convinced it was a fancy packed donut.

Instead of opening it, I just put in the fridge to keep it fresh.

The next day, I woke up and decided there would be no better breakfast than eating that bloody donut, so I opened the package.

Imagine my surprise when I found this:

That’s right, it’s a bloody brilliant Casio Pacman watch.

A watch!!!

Even though it was absolutely freezing, it warmed my heart.

I know … I know … this means I’m double sad.

One, for thinking it was a donut and two, for getting excited when it was a watch basically for 8 year olds – or very, very sad 51 year olds.

But you know what?

I literally don’t care.

Not even a little bit.

So a huge thanks to my lovely colleague PC who got it for me … even though he is basically acknowledging how sad and immature I am.

Finally you have a title for one of your posts that really works.

Comment by DH

This is apparently a brand collaboration that recaptures the thrill of the 1970s. Heads should roll.

Comment by John

If that thrill is a lot of shiny promise followed by the disappointment of reality, they nailed it …

That said, I still love it, hahahaha.
