Changing Times

Ryan was excited. He had a surprise stop for Bianca, to see his old family home during their holiday. The icing on the cake would be lunch at his all-time favourite retro diner; 20 years ago when a student, the NoshPit had cheap tasty food.

But when they arrived at his old address, a modern monstrosity had replaced his house.  Ryan was deflated.

“Hey, wait till you see where we’re going for lunch!”

“Exciting! I’m famished!”

Ryan’s face fell seeing a derelict diner that was once legendary.

“Such a shame! Hang on to the memories, let’s go get Thai instead.”


Thanks for reading

    1. Thank you KL Caley. We used to have Hamburger Heaven, Simple Cottage, and The Last Resort in Auckland…all favourites, back in the late 80s. We went back for a holiday in 2015…all long gone. As you say, it gives us a push to try something new 🙂

    1. Yes, going back isn’t always a good plan! We did a trip back to my family home and neighbourhood in June, thankfully nothing much had changed, gave me goosebumps! Our house is exactly the same on the outside. The real estate photos showed a different very modern story on the inside though. But still my old stomping ground 🙂
