Mr. Biggs [was] 10, now 25

I remember Mr. Biggs adverts during commercial breaks of the soap "Secrets of the Sand" in the 90s. The lyrics of the jingle included "Mr. Biggs is ten, come share with us, lots of love and excitement..." The fast food restaurant was the sh!t then. That felt like not too long ago. Recently I saw an ad, Mr. Biggs was now 25. 15 years went by just like that. So many things had change since I first heard the jingle, the world and my perception of it included.

I experienced nostalgia just thinking of the jingle. I remember other tv adverts I watched during the show. Supreme ice cream had one and FunTime Coconut chips "great time anytime". My focus isn't on childhood tv ads but on how much time can fly without us noticing and how our experiences were merely bookmarks in our lives which we use to measure how we had grown. As I remember Mr. Biggs jingle of 15 years ago, I also remember my life 15 years ago.

I would be heading to Mr. Biggs this evening because I want to "bookmark" an experience as I walk in. 15 years ago I doubt I could personally afford anything they had for sell behind the counter but today, it was the opposite story. It is definitely something to be grateful for especially being alive. And Congratulations to Mr. Biggs and I'm glad they were part of my childhood.

  2. My husband and I have been married for 3 and a half years. In June it will be 7 years that we have been a part of each other lives. Recently he found out about a guy I slept with when we were separated and I did not tell him about. Before we got married we both agreed to let everything out and start fresh. I didn’t tell him. I was embarrassed bc the guy and I never actually had sex…just everything that led up to it. not to mention it was my brothers best friend and a huge mistake. well it came out recently along with some lies. A friend told my husband I cheated on him and I have never cheated on my husband nor would I ever. He is convinced I am a cheater. we have 2 beautiful kids and all I have ever wanted is a happy family. my kids and my husband truly are my everything. I can not see a future where my husband is not in it. I want to do whatever I can to save my marriage but I feel my husband is already set on the divorce. I know I could have been a better wife to him….a wife he deserves but now I fee like I have realized it too late. I look at my kids and I hate myself for allowing myself to break my family apart. I know my husband is not perfect and he has hurt me tremendously these past 5 years we have been off and on but we made it through for a reason. I love him and I want to save my marriage, one day a friend of my introduce me to a spell caster online who lift me up gave me hope and with-in 2 days after his spell my husband who told me he needed a divorce, called me and take me back home to me i must say today we are happily as one big family again all thanks to Dr joy a father and a real spell caster.Contact email address joylovespell@gmail.com Call him +2347059014517
