No surprise to people that know me, but I was a bit of a tomboy growing up. It’s not that I don’t like pretty things, dolls, dressing up, etc. (shoes are still good
accessories absolutely-necessary-goods to get if one has the cash), so I still was a girlie-girl [tee-hee]. But, I also have liked playing with trucks, metal cars, and “tossing balls”. Yes, yes, I know…it does have a definite and fun double meaning. That’s a story for another time. 😉 Anyway, one particular ball I found once was a hard brown softball. It floated in water, and if I focused enough, I could get it to go pretty far [considering I throw like a girl – hah]. I grew up and wasn’t not sure what ever happened to the ball…until today. Playing an online game, I saw a web advertisement for IAMS dog food.
Okay, so it’s not exactly my ball, but it did remind me of the one I used to play with when I was a little girl. ;D
Isn’t it something how seeing an ad devised to sell something else can invoke such a memory? Have you ever had something similar happen to you?
