I unchain my bike from the rack as soon as the bell goes.
Mum gave me 50c to go to the milk bar after school.
I don’t know what put her in such a generous mood, but I’m going to town when I see Bill!
Sweats dripping down my face, my bike clicks as my bright beads spin around the pedals.
I have to stop for moment as my butterfly clips are hurting against my helmet.
I finally reach Bill’s Milk Bar.
I’m kind of a regular here.
I don’t know what I’m in the mood for.. I’m pretty basic when it comes to sweets.
And there I spot them.
Sweet, yellowy goodness! Banana heaven.
Do I go the mixed bag or do I go all out and get a ridiculous amount of banana lollies?
What the heck!
I head up to the counter, I can see Bill’s in a good mood because all the Herald Suns have sold out, that’s always a good thing!
“Bill, give me the works, 100 banana lollies please!”
Bill rolls his eyes because this is probably the hardest task of the day, picking up 100 lollies for a 10 year old, but deep down he’s an old softy!
He gives me my 10c change and I hold on to it for another time and say goodbye!
I pick up the white paper bags and rustle them in my hands.
I take a big sniff and the sweetness of banana hits.
Chewiness and a sugar rush hit my mouth.
I’ve really hit the jackpot today!
Then I realise, I didn’t bring my bum bag, how on earth am I going to take these home?
Oh well, I think, no harm in eating them all here whilst I check on my tamagotchi.
