We were talking about flasks and I fondly remembered the matching lunchbox and flash I had when I started school. It was one of the Turtles’ ones and kinda like this one, but green instead of red.
Oh how I loved and treasured it.
And then when I was in senior infants, I was racing my friend into school and I tripped over it and fell and smashed my front tooth out of my mouth (I’m still JUST as graceful! *rolls eyes*).
I still loved it though.
And then when I was going into second class, my mum figured I was too old for it, and replaced it with a cold, plastic, see-through lunchbox with a proper lid and an equally depressing beaker.
My brother started school the following year. He was given my lunchbox.
I’m still bitter.
