Weekend Writing Prompt #225 – Newspaper

Sammi Cox is our host for the Weekend Writing Prompt, and today gives us NEWSPAPER.
The smell tempted the nostrils, lingered on the clothes, but oh, the memories.
Once a cheap and substantial meal, now what it would cost to feed a family of four is not sufficient for a small portion, let alone anything on the side.
What am I talking about? Fish and chips wrapped in newspaper. Somehow it just doesn’t taste the same in a polystyrene box or white paper.


About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    I first visited London in the early 1980s, having grown up on a steady diet of Agatha Christie, Inspector Morse, BBC on PBS, my grandmother the monarchist, etc. I was so disappointed: I couldn’t find a fish and chips shop that still used newspaper wrapping. Closest I came was a paper take-away box!

    Indeed, the sense of taste is more than what meets the tongue. Love the take.
