I guarantee everybody has got some kind of memory attached to dog shit. It holds a special place in our hearts. I remember one time my mate Matthew came round to play and my sister chased him round the garden with an umbrella. Whilst he was rolling away from her on the floor, he got a dog turd which had gone stiff stuck to his elbow. So he ran into the house crying and washed it off in the kitchen sink. Good times.
Then there are the different flavours. You had your normal classic brown and you had the rarer white variety. When people talk about this, they go so far as to actually get nostalgic about white dog shit. ''You just don't see it anymore, i wonder what ever happened to it.'' They talk about it with the same fondness as their favourite discontinued flavour of crisps. How would your life be improved if this stuff made a comeback?
Sesame street and dog shit, that's what being a kid is all about.
