Whatchamacallit 123: Goldfish Colors (to be deaccessioned)

Goldfish Colors

I bought this package of Pepperidge Farm Goldfish Colors awhile back: judging from its expiration date of March 8, 2015, I probably bought it in 2014.

Given the rainbow, I thought of it as Pride Goldfish – so after eating them, I save the box.

In the intervening years, the package has faded slightly and collected its share of dust. Much to my surprise, part of the package is sticky – from what, I do not know.

Whenever I notice the package, I think, “PRIDE GOLDFISH.” About three seconds later, I’ve forgotten the goldfish.

Ironic, considering the longstanding myth that goldfish have three second memories.

The only way I will remember this packaging after today is when I stumble upon this blog entry and think to myself, “why did I keep that empty box for so many years?”

During the Covid-19 crisis, I am going to try and make a point of writing a blog post about an object in my home.

We’ll see how long this lasts.
