We don’t shop on a Sunday, or indeed in the big Sainsbury’s very often, we had returned from holiday the evening before so provisions were needed. There was rugby at the Twickenham stadium so we couldn’t go to our local Waitrose. Whilst waiting at the deli counter the above advertisement caught my eye, the staff were non plussed, don’t think the errors were recognised.
Talking of food, at Pilates class the other week and then a few days later in a pub in Seaton the subject of the Welsh name for a microwave oven was raised. It’s Popty Ping, probably every one else knows this but I love the randomness of hearing the same onomatopoeic name some 150 miles apart within a few days. We will now be referring to our microwave by this name, along with Alexander the grater, the vacuum cleaner is James the Second, it’s our second Dyson, the car is Megan because part of the number is MGN.
Yes, all very silly but why not? As we used to tell the kids everyone’s silly sometimes and this has been an opportunity to return to blogging
