J: Am I naive?
M: No, not naive. Sometimes your approach to things can be a little wonky.
J: Wonky?
M: Are you ready for a food analogy?
J: Is there any other kind of analogy?!
M: So you're at a party and you're heading for the buffet table.
J: Okay.
M: You know that the sandwiches will be popular. They've been cut into triangles, there's a lot of filling in them, they look great. But the crisps are your favourite, especially when a bunch of flavours have been mixed together in a bowl.
J: That is very true. It's a surprise every time...
M: You know that if you go for the crisps first there might not be any sandwiches left by the time you get there. But you do that anyway because they're your favourite. It turns out all the sandwiches have gone, but you don't really mind because you knew that would probably happen. You know what's up but you purposely go looking for what you consider to be the best thing first.
J: Oh.
M: If you'd picked up the sandwich first you could have had that and the crisps, you know? But your way is just that, it's yours. And it's okay because I'd swing by the sandwiches first and pick an extra one up for you.
J: You would?
M: Yeah... But if they were really good I might end up eating it before I could give it to you...
J: Well, I couldn't hold that against you. I'd probably do the same.

  6. This is perhaps one of my favourite things that I have read in a long time. I think wonky is an excellent thing to be.

    1. I'm definitely okay with being a little wonky :) xx

  7. This was lovely Jennie :) Really cheered me up :)

  8. Love it! I'd be the same though... sticking with the same analogy I'd be worried that by some unlucky chance the biggest assorted crisp fan would be just behind me and would swoop in and take them all before I got there, even though logically I know it's highly unlikely. Damn those imaginary crisp devourers! xo

  9. Aww this is the sweetest Jennie! <3

  20. Such a lovely post again. It's not easy to live life without regrets: the only way of achieving this is if we go for what we really want, and go for it without fear, guilt, or doubt. Let's face it, we can always make another sandwich, and choose any filling we want :-) Have a great weekend!
