Wouldn't You Know It

It's always the way isn't it? You go looking for something and they've completely run out. At the Asian supermarket today, they had lots of this:


But where was the unpleasant pickle? None available. Couldn't be had for love nor money. Typical. Just typical.

  2. No - apparently there are plenty of pheasants availalbe, but you just can't get the staff any more, so no tickling.

  3. No -- it was there. You missed it -- right behind the curmudgeonly cucumber.

  4. Can't add anything to this, except thanks for the laugh.

  5. Much is "pleasant" here in China, including a character in a children's cartoon, "Pleasant Goat." Such a fine quality for a superhero.

  6. That cucumber was more than curmudgeonly, Chris; it was so ferocious that it bit me and I had to leave the shop (after buying and eating on the spot some rather delicious mushrooms - could that explain my perception of the cucumber's behaviour, I wonder [none of that is actually true, should anyone be wondering].)
    Thanks, Whispering - it just seemed to me that 'pleasant' would be a given, when offering food to the public to buy.
    I am a bit vague about your timetable, Polly, but it would be lovely to skype when you have a spare ten minutes - let me know when suits you (is David here or at his mother's bedside, by the way?)

  7. I'll try to have a pleasant conversation with you tomorrow morning.

  8. Peasants pretty thin on the ground - although a Yugoslav friend referred to the Farmers' Organic Market as the Peasant Market the other day
