Plinky Prompt: What Can't You Throw Away?


Casino Royale Poker Chip

There are plenty of things that people can’t throw away, or don’t want to throw away. I too have items of sentimental value that I would hate to part with. I also have things that I would hate to part with that are’t really of sentimental
value, but still are important to me for one reason or another.

The sentimental items though are not always items I have a lot of use for in practical terms – generally they mean a lot to me because of the people from whom they have come.

One such item that is very important to me is a ‘chip’ I received during a visit to a casino of all places, in Sydney, when I went there with Rebecca several years ago. Rebecca died almost three years ago, so this chip has special meaning to me as a reminder of both Rebecca and the trip to Sydney that we enjoyed together. I have made it into a keyring and it is always with me.

Plinky Prompt: The Weirdest Food I've Ever Eaten


Orange popsicle ice cream

The weirdest food I have ever eaten was probably Orange Ice Cream that was served up in an orange. I had this at an Indian restaurant in Sydney many years ago.

The Orange Ice Cream was quite OK and I would have it again should I ever come across it.
