Jelly belly

You know when you have your tonsils out, everyone says (mum, dad, grandma, husband, kids, shopkeepers and friends) they ALL say “oh just eat jelly and ice-cream”. And they always look excited like you’re about to be let loose in a sweet shop during happy hour. They almost look envious.

But that’s because they have never spent a week eating ONLY JELLY AND ICE-CREAM.

Sure, it’s a great sugar high. But I’ve ended up like that kid in the Charlie and the Chocolate Factory novel. Augustus Gloop. Drowning in a river of chocolate. If I never see another bowl of jelly this year it will still be too soon.
