Nuts

I imagine there are a lot of people who, as a child, saw this world as full of possibilities. To me it was a world that was lacking too many things. Balance was something I didn’t see often and I did struggle with the shortage of absolutes. What was often described as straight forward information was often anything but direct. Wording or the way words were framed often confused me. For example the day I happened to glance along the shelves and see a packet of peanuts turned the wrong way in the display. “May Contain Peanuts” ... I kid you not. I instinctually stopped because although I was aware it was an error in wording it set off a chain reaction in my head. “May... May... May contain, like are some packets empty? Is this a Kinder egg kind of deal, do some packs come with toys now?????”. I knew it wasn’t the case, that I was overthinking but like I said before my mind processes everything. Take it from me, wording choice needs to be highly specific and direct. Otherwise your mind can take things in some really interesting ways and in a completely different direction.
