Is to be able to go back in time and have a quiet word with my 14 year old self.
I’d hide round a corner and say “Psssssst! 14 year old Kitcac, over here!”
14 year old me would possibly be a bit freaked out and kick 32 year old me in the shins, before running off to buy some Kiwi flavoured 20/20.
If I managed to catch up with 14 year old me, I’d tell her not to buy a tape of Mariah Carey’s seasonal hit “All I Want For Christmas Is You” from Malcolm’s Musicland. I would also tell me to definitely not give the tape to a boy in my year at school because inevitably Old Me will feel awkward and will visibly cringe every time it is played in the following 18 years.
That song will be played every December for eternity. I hope that one day I will learn a coping technique to minimise the cringeing.
Mulled wine will have to be the answer for now.
