“I can resist anything except temptation”


William found this in his diary, written when he was eight years young…

Six days before her birthday I bought my mum a six-pack of chocolate bars.

Next day I thought it wise to sample a bar to see if she would like it.

Day after that like Oscar Wilde I thought “I can resist anything except temptation”.

The next day I thought I was hungry, so four became three.

On the Thursday I thought my sweet tooth would get the better of me, hence three turned into two.

Friday was my treat day so I thought a single bar would make her happy.

Her birthday fell on the Saturday and when she woke I said, “Happy birthday mum,” I bought you some chocolate but I think it got stolen.”

“That’s OK,” she said, “It’s the thought that counts.”
