Help! I can't stop thinking of Nips-related stories.
I was watching TV this morning when the Nips in my hand started talking.
They were squabbling over who was the best Nip of all.
"Red is always the leader!" declared the Red Nip.
"Says the Power Rangers!"
Everyone else rolled their eyes.
"Orange tastes the best! And it's rich in Vitamin C!"
"So what! Yellow is rich in Vitamin C too, and we're bright and colourful!"
"What-everrr." Green flicked her hair back. "You guys sure got a lot of class, and it's all low. Unlike moi."
"Shut up, you kids!" growled Brown. "Go play with your toys or something. Grown-ups like me have lots of better stuff to do."
The other Nips started shouting angrily at each other.
"Guys, GUYS!" I yelled into the pack.
They stopped and stared daggers at me.
"Why are you even fighting? Nips don't come in flavours! Unless you're talking about Peanut and Peanut & Raisin."
"You kidding me?"
"Man," the Red Nip slumped. "I always figured I was Apple."
"No you're not." I affirmed. "Though all of you look different on the outside, deep down you're all the same - chocolate."
"Yes!" Brown Nip pumped his fist, drawing dirty shots from the others.
"So my dear Nips, there's really no reason to argue who is the best. All of you are equal. You just gotta accept your outer differences. Don't let your silly little colours divide you. They mean nothing!"
"But," quipped the Green Nip. "That's what you humans do."
All the Nips giggled.
Embarrassed, I sank into my couch and changed the channel to TV1.
