Hooray for WIAW!
Thanks Jen 🙂
But first, What I Opened In The Post Wednesday
As a reporter, and I’m sure this applies whatever publication you work for, you get a lot of strange communication.
There was the woman who rang to complain about us putting the weekly mention of lost and found cats next to the birdwatchers’ column because “cats and birds are natural enemies” for example, or the one who said the “wretched paper” had “ruined” her house – because the delivery boy had left it stuck in the letterbox rather than pushing it through.
But the post I got today took the biscuit. In more ways than one.
The letter itself was a fairly standard reader’s complaint about traffic wardens but with it in the envelope were these:
Yep, that’s two toilet signs and a stale gingerbread man.
No idea what purpose they’re supposed to serve.
And in case you were wondering, the gingerbread man (so soggy it folded rather than breaking) is Not What I Ate Wednesday.
What I did eat included this:
Normal breakfast of strawberries and plain soya yoghurt, topped with mango/coconut granola, which was amaaaazing… especially when you mix it all up:
I love the way the crunch went with the other textures and flavours. I also loved my second breakfast; a caramel rice cake with coconut butter and jam:
And dinner is still technically in the planning stages 🙂
But it will probably include some of this lot:
It will possibly be followed by one of these:
And there’s half a chance some of these might also feature:
Other snackage of the day harks back to the biscuit theme, ie these:
I’ve never tried to find gluten free substitutes to food I used to eat but instead appreciate things for themselves – but those Trufree digestives break the rules. They taste, crunch and dunk exactly like the normal ones. And, just like the normal ones, they might seem the most boring biscuits ever (no chocolate, raisins, topping, nuffing) but are weirdly great and addictive – and a definite improvement on soggy gingerbread men!
What’s your favourite biscuit – and have you ever been sent one in the post?! If not, have you ever been sent anything else strange?
