Pick 'n' Mix

Hi there! Nice to see you! I tell you what, I’m going to treat you to some pick ‘n’ mix (medium sized cup, I’m not an oligarch). You can pick 7 items. What you going for?

Me:
Pink and blue cola bottles
Normal cola bottles
Jelly snake
Foam shrimps
Gummy bears
Jelly beans
Strawberry pencils

Now you! General P ‘n’ M chat also welcome.

(Wilko’s BOGOF deal on P&M every bank holiday is a Godsend)

Will have these if the ol’ blue and pink aren’t available.

there’s a guy at work who, at least three times, has said to me “you can’t even get a 10p mix-up for 10p any more” and i always want to tell him how much of a stupid twat he is

That’s very hostile of you

he’s a twat in other ways too

All the more for me. I like the fudge too but it takes up quite a lot of room in the cup and can’t be squashed up.

Everyone is just a person trying their best

  • Pink and blue cola bottles, as they’re the best sweets
  • Fizzy cola bottles
  • Foam shrimps
  • Chocolate ice cream cones
  • Jelly beans
  • Foam bananas
  • These things

Yeah, Fudge is one of those additions that I can’t justify on an intellectual level but my instincts take over and it will always find it’s way in

I think too much is made of intellect in the pick n mix game Ant, you and your instincts are the way forward.

I think, like anything in life, there is a happy medium. If I were to give way to pure instinct in the P&M game I would never have experienced such delights as “red and black berries” but if I over intellectualise it becomes purely an exercise in space management.
