Still Tastes The Same…

February 18, 2017

When I was younger, there was a certain place where I would sometimes get hot chips (French fries). I remember those hot chips because they were particularly delicious, and I quite liked the way they tasted. I used to look forward to getting them each time, and the smell of them was branded into my memory.

For various reasons, it’s been years since I went back to that same place.

However, today, I happened to be in that neighbourhood again. I didn’t even think about those chips until I was walking past the shop and smelled them again. They smelled exactly the same, and for a second, I was a kid again, looking forward to a bit of a treat.

You can guess what I did next. I went right into the shop and bought some hot chips. Now, the shop looked very different from how I remembered it. The decor was different. The staff members were different. Even the sign out the front was different. But the chips?

The chips tasted exactly the same.

It was drizzling a little as I walked along the street with my hot chips, but I didn’t care. Being an adult is great, but there are times when you just want to feel like a kid again. Eating those hot chips, I felt just like a kid. I was smiling like one too.
