Fabulous, now that’s out of the way I ask of you, is too much of a good thing a good thing? Or a bad thing? Can you have too much of a good thing?
I have recently become addicted to hot cross buns. I can hear you ask, “are they on the counters yet?” Yes they are on the counter and then in my mouth. I never liked hot cross buns. The whole fruit and orange peel in them always forced me to keep my distance. Alas, I tried one. I didn’t eat the whole thing to begin with. I would pick the fruit out and then smother the rest in butter. Now they make fruitless ones, mocha ones and heaven forbid chocolate chip… thank you very much!
I grew up with Rugby League. Both my grandfathers played, as did my Dad. State of Origin was a massive family event on the calendar; Australian Rules Football wasn’t even in our vocabulary. It was ‘the other’ football, ‘aerial ping-ong’ and it annoyingly hogged the one channel - in a two-channel town - all day on a Saturday. And then I met Brett… … …
I am proud to put me hand up and say that I am a footyhead, of the aerial ping-pong kind. I even watched the Bulldogs play the other night just to see what Hally looked like wearing their colours. I love AFL. I love watching it live, I love watching it from the couch in my tracky-dacks with the volume down (depending on who is commentating). AFL is truly a great game and while all things evolve and change I hope that it doesn’t too much. But you know all this.
So can you have too much of a good thing? If chocolate chip hot cross buns are ‘the good’ thing my scales say YES!
