Hi readers, it’s Emily and William here sharing some of our more random thoughts. This week we were wondering about if you were described as a food, what would it be…
We started thinking about us first. We think I, Emily would be a mug of soup – comforting and reassuring, always there to give friends a big hug if feeling down. For me, William, I’d be a roast dinner – traditional, uncomplicated, reliable and a family person. Here are a few other ideas we came up with…
First, the politicians. Boris Johnson would be an Eton Mess and Kier Starmer a limp lettuce! My, Emily’s favourite Ronan Keating would be macaroni cheese with a dash of Worcester sauce – traditional, comforting but also strong with a bit of kick! Alex Jones is definitely a tasty ripe peach – healthy, fresh, wholesome, soft and friendly!
As for family - our parents, for both of us, are like bread and butter, always there for us. If we can’t need something, bread and butter is almost always available and comforting – just like our parents.
On to film stars - Tom Cruise would be a super complicated, healthy organic smoothie, very difficult to get all the ingredients! Johnny Depp on the other hand is definitely intense dark chocolate - strong, firm, stands up for what he believes in and not afraid of a challenge.
Two royals to end, or maybe one former royal, anyway it’s Prince Harry. He’s a jelly baby jam roly-poly – sweet and likeable but a bit naughty! Finally the Queen who was the hardest. She’s a fine and splendid trifle – many layers, humble, hard working and enthusiastic.
We hope these get you thinking about your next meal and who best fits the foods on your plate!
