Discrepant

DiscrepantAndrew had found it different living in London compared to Rome.

Rome had been a completely alien experience and he'd loved it, but London was familiar enough that it became the little things that threw him.

He'd quickly gotten used to the weather and people driving on the wrong side of the road, but was still baffled by the mass adoration of hideous Australian soap operas.

Then there was the issue of food. Breakfast cereals were not quite right and it was odd seeing displays of mirror world candy bars. He suspected his addiction to Rolos might become a problem.

It's not an addiction honest! I can give up any time I want it's just... um...

I'm really, really sorry that got inflicted on you. I suspect someone is getting back at us by making The Bill crap.

Just don't send Kylie back.

mirror world candy bars

This is the root of America's problems they just don't have proper chocolate!

And, I'm sorry but Rolos just aren't the same since they got softer caramel in the middle.

Am I allowed to mention the n that seems to have done a runner from the 'Australian soap operas?'

Whatever they have, it should never be allowed to use the name chocolate. The low melting point still spins out and the taste is best not mentioned.

Fantales are a little similar to Rolos, but Rolos have a smoother taste, and they've gotten softer too. I quite miss the old cobbers of my youth, you could lose teeth to their caramel centres.

Thanks for the catch with the missing n, always appreciated.

It's always the little things that get you, the ones you don't think about because of course that's just the way things are... and then one day they're not.

Thank you for being my dodgy grammar spotter, I really must think about moving the Cthulhus, I'm sure they've been snacking on my brain again.

I have a fascination with mirror world objects. I have to see them and taste them, this may well be Stephen King's fault.
