I went to the supermarket today and I went down the “junk” isle with cookies, pudding and “fruit” snacks. I remember as a child, my mom NEVER if ever bought fruit snacks, fruit roll ups etc. But what I do remember is that there were so many varieties that you could pick between cherry, strawberry etc.
So the other day i went down the “forbidden” isle, I rarely go down it. And I looked at the amounts of “junk” that i used to think was AMAZING when i was a kid. Now there were a variety of fruit snacks and there were little to none of the sunkist fun fruits, only one kind of fruit roll ups etc. I mean i know this stuff is not healthy for us but OMG was it the end of an era for me.
I remember that I promised myself that I would spend my whole first pay check on fruit roll ups and fun fruits, and while i did buy one package with my first pay check, I probably bought coffee and cigarettes instead.
Yup, that was me a young angry teenager who smoked to piss off my mom and wow was that a bad idea. Not only was I only hurting myself, i barely had money let alone to buy smokes with it. Good thing I quit at 17.. best thing I ever did. I found that if you can cut out the certain “must have” smoke, you can absolutely do it!
So what did you want to buy with your first pay check?
