Hi everyone...sorry, I'm not back, not yet. This is just a quick post to let you know that I still exist. It's just that I'm in the alien world of full time workers until the end of next week.
Speaking of which, do you know that Maltesers are medicinal? Yep. I proved it today. At about 2.15 pm I was typing away and literally nodding off (but still typing... get that!). As I jerked and came to, I realised I needed to get something to keep me awake and to help the time pass until 4 o'clock. So...I went to the newsagents next door and bought a small packet of Maltesers. About five seconds after the first Malteser I could feel myself becoming brighter, after about six Maltesers the world was definitely a better place. When the whole packet was demolished, I felt as if I could run a marathon.
Which just goes to prove that Maltesers are medicinal...they are as good as, and could probably be marketed as...amphetamines! After all, there are drugs to make us sleep, why not Maltesers to make us more alert.
However, there is a downside. At the moment Maltesers are relatively cheap, what, about $1.60 for 145g pack? If the street dealers latch on to this and start selling them in nightclubs, we could be paying a fortune for the same sized pack! (Shudder) It doesn't bear thinking about.
I don't indulge in Maltesers very often, not as much as I would like to, but if demand exceeded supply, I'd have to find another chocolate to pig out on...and that could be totally drastic. Just think of all the brands, flavours and packs I'd have to try, it would be an absolute nightmare.
With that in mind, maybe I should wean myself off Maltesers. But...oh,how I'd miss the chocolate melting on my tongue until I reached the lovely malt centre...nah, if the price goes up because the nightclubbers eat all the Maltesers off the supermarket shelf, I guess I'll just have to budget for it.
Have a good week and I'll catch up in the weekend.
