      ... you remember doing this then you’ll remember that the paper and shiny wrapping makes a type of crackling noise as you pull the wrapper off to get to the sweet inside. One sound was like dry autumn leaves cracking under feet and one was like the strong wind howling around the side of the house on a story winters night.
