They say trauma hits you when you least expect it! I suffered a loss in my childhood, that I thought I had recovered from.
Growing up in Cork in the 80’s and 90’s were simpler times. You could always rely on a game of ball on the green, McGyver on Thursday nights and the occasional warm embrace of confectionary to give you that jolt of fake energy. I recently walked into my local shop and looked at the carefully stacked sweet counter for my old friends. Wide eyed and feeling nostalgic I frantically searched for my comrades.
Then it hit me. They’re gone! The penny had finally dropped.
You were the always so positive. You lived life to it’s full and the possibilities seemed endless. We grew up together and shared a lot of good times. Then you started embracing American culture too much and changed your name. I told you it wasn’t a good idea, but you wanted to chase that dragon named fame. You died to me the day you started calling yourself Starburst.
Named after an endurance event and you were a survivor. You were that constant in my life until you – got notions. I told you that hanging around with Starburst would get you into trouble. I was right and before I knew it you had changed. “What does Snickers even mean?”
Sweet Roy. What happened? You were a regular match winner, legions of adoring fans and then you disappeared. Bowed out at your peak. Never to grace the field of confectionary again.
