Last night I drove into Baldock to see the Coca-Cola Truck. Yes! I know I’m bonkers, but I wanted to see what all the fuss was about. The town was gridlocked and I began to rehearse my old-man’s ‘Bah Humbug’ routine. I managed to park and walked over towards the Coca-Cola truck. It was rather like walking in a vast crowd towards a football stadium, except for the number of excited children (by the time we arrived at the truck I was excited too!)…
The Coca-Cola truck’s in town,
the traffic’s gridlocked all around,
but once you see the children’s amazes,
you’ll put away those Grinch-like faces!
Because as all have come to know,
children’s Christmas is Santa and snow,
and I should recon for many a year,
they’ll remember when ‘The Truck’ was here!
I realize it is a clever marketing ploy, but to see the joyous faces of the children of Baldock was wonderful!
