Need vs Want

Mr Jelly recently bought back a packet of these from the supermarket.


They sat in the cupboard un-opened for a few days

The restraint nearly killed me.

Then one day I cracked.

Spying me opening the pack, Mr Jelly informed me that he had bought them for boy*jelly to have.

"Oh well" I shrugged "he won't know if I don't tell him"

And then came the killer line from Mr Jelly

."But you don't need them"

Well ...

He's right.

.I don't need them in exactly the same way he doesn't need to watch motorsport on the telly at any given opportunity.

And that's the difference between "need" and "want".

I rest my case your honour.

of course you "needed" them - they had been sat in the cupboard taunting you for days! Silly Mr*jelly

They would be completely safe from me.. but then I have Celiac and not walking for several days really makes you think tiwce about such things! After oh I don't know, about 7 years you even stop craving them!

It really hurts my feelings when Mr Busy says something like that to me. But I just stare defiantly at him and eat it anyway!! ;0)
