Response to “Out of Your Reach”

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Out of Your Reach.”

When I was younger, all of the kids always had the coolest, most fun snacks at lunchtime. I’m not complaining for being raised on a healthy, mostly-homemade diet, but I definitely missed out on a lot. During lunchtime, all my friends always had fruit roll ups, pop tarts, gushers, cheez-itz, those rainbow brownie things, etc. I never had that kind of stuff in my house, so when I would go to my friends’ houses, I would actually steal snacks and bring them home since my friends wouldn’t give me more than one bag. It was crazy, and I feel like that part of my childhood could’ve been a little bit better.
