Shortly after my 3rd birthday something special was released in the UK – ‘Return of The Jedi’. My two oldest brothers, Tim and Nat, got to go see it at the cinema while Andy and myself were left behind. I’m not sure whether our parents felt that the Ewoks would be too frightening for us or whether they simply couldn’t afford to take all four of us! Regardless of the reason, we were consoled with a 99 Flake when the ice cream van came by.
Yesterday something special was released in the UK – Apple’s iPad. I’d love one but I simply can’t afford one. So, in homage to the day I was denied Return of The Jedi, I bought myself a 99 Flake to console myself. Some things just never change!
