When I was a school boy there was this cake that every kid used to eat called Bollycao.
There were two things that made this cake special:
- A sweet bread stuffed with hazelnut chocolate.
- A random sticker to collect and trade.
If you were really lucky, instead of a regular trading sticker you could get a special sticker that you could trade for a prize. A skate for instance.
One day, as I was ready to open my Bollycao, I thought to myself: “I wish I could get a prize sticker…Please, let there be a prize inside!“
And there it was! One of the lucky stickers!
This was the first and only time I got a prize in Bollycao. Probably the only time I got a prize in anything else…
Now, for the actual prize: It was a t-shirt. Yes, a stupid t-shirt!
I guess I should have been more specific about my wish…
In the end I didn’t even manage to trade the sticker for the actual stupid t-shirt! But that was the least of my worries…
I had just found out I was a psychic.
