Earlier this week I rang KXNT‘s Alan Stock when he was discussing research which claims that women find it harder to resist tempting food than men. I had to contradict the research with the fact that I ate an entire packet of Tim Tams in the space of about an hour on Sunday night without noticing.
My mention of Tim Tams was great with “a packet of what?”. They were short on time, so on the advice of Alan’s producer, I revised it to “a packet of chocolate cookies”. I was later stunned when I checked the Wikipedia article for Tim Tams and found that they are only sold in Australia, New Caledonia and New Zealand.
I have subsequently emailed the Wikipedia article to Alan, and have decided to use part of my stimulus payment to buy a packet of Tim Tams and post them to Alan and the crew at KXNT. I informed Alan of this in my email and he apparently discussed this on the air with his colleagues this morning (a segment which I regrettably missed) and they are all apparently looking forward to receiving the biscuits. As such (and I haven’t told Alan this) I think I’ll be generous and buy two packets for them. If they’re anything like me, they’ll need the second packet!
The Tim Tams will be my second voluntary use of my stimulus payment (which is yet to arrive), behind purchasing Mark Levin’s book “Liberty and Tyranny: A Conservative Manifesto” as I mentioned yesterday.
