Tasting Memory Lane

“Tastes as good as you remember.”

See that on the box?  A lie.  A big ole marketing fabrication.

Tastes just as good…

Yeah, tastes like someone scraped the bottom of a movie theater of all the leftover popcorn since 1918, poured Karo syrup on it, with a touch of “eau-de-cardboard.”

Looks in mirror and thinks, Reminds me of the little sailor dress I had when I was 3.  Back then, me and Cracker Jack were supposed to run off and be married.  Surely the little doggy told him I was his #1 fan.

Side-eyes the Cracker Jack box as I wheel my cart through Wal-Mart.
