Well, another day down another wonderful bowl of Curiously Cinnamon, starting to want a change but I think that’s natural. I’m still really enjoying it but I just fancy something that keeps me full up for longer. I didn’t have my cereal in the morning which left me a bit grouchy first thing, unfortunately this brought on my slightly sarcastic side. I work doing a lot of online sales on Amazon and eBay, business is great but at this time of year you find you get a whole load of absolute idiots emailing you stupid questions, not village idiot style idiot, I mean the type of person who has thought to email you questions like “please can you send my order to my address”, or “do you know what day my order would turn up if I order today?” and if I had a pound for every person in the last week who has asked me “will my order will be delivered in time for Christmas ?” I would have £136.75. Suffice to say some of those people may not want to email me again.
I popped to Tesco at lunch to by nappies and nappy bags and to forget to buy one of my bosses some Lemon Fools. On the way out I was just leaving the shop and a young skinny lad in front of me started to leg it, he bolted, 2 security guards went after him, they were not very fast, imagine if you will Theo Walcott stealing Arsene Wenger’s toupé, running and then Arsene and Pat Rice trying to chase across a crowded, rainy Tesco car park. I did what any man would have done, I watched. The guy in the grey was pretty much in the clear but then a young man in a hi-vis jacket who was pushing approximately 27 shopping trolleys in to a space that didn’t look like it could store more than 20 shopping trolleys spotted what was happening, this was his moment, in his head he could hear the song from Chariots of Fire, he could probably foresee his name on the front page of the local newspaper, this would definitely get him a girlfriend, this was his moment, he went after him like a disobedient jack russell chasing a 3 legged rabbit. The shoplifter thought he was away, you could tell, he was slowing, the 2 ‘security guards’ stopped running, then he turned to see this trolley boy sprinting like his life depended on it, classic running techniques, high knees, big strides (cheers Linford), and he was gaining, he got to the corner of the car park and dashed out of sight towards where I work. I got in my car, the chase was on, well at least until I got round the corner, I lost them, the Zafira is many things but a car suitable for chases it is not, who knows if the trolley boy caught him, I’ll check the paper to see tomorrow.
When I got home I had my Curiously Cinnamon, I have it in the evenings most Mondays as I play football so a bowl of cereal is just enough that it doesn’t give me stitch but does give me energy, tonight Curiously Cinnamon did good, I really enjoyed the game and got stuck in where possible, we drew 4-4 but it was a great game, I had plenty of energy and that can only have been because of those Cinnamon Scrabble tiles. I am yet to find a fault with Curiously Cinnamon (besides the name which makes little sense), I have one bowlful left.
