What?!?

So tomorrow morning we’re heading off to Italy. Having battled out way through all the Covid stuff I’m exhausted -it needs to be done I accept and applaud that but when I hear friends saying that nothing was actually checked I’m concerned. But….,

the thing that really shocked me was that if we didn’t do the online check-in with a specific Irish airline then it would cost us £55 to do it when we arrived! Why? Check-in is a normal part of the process of flying – BUT now it costs us!! FFS

Word Puzzles …….

The great thing about word puzzles is that it expands your vocabulary ….. apparently. Today I learned the word AXION

It means ‘a hypothetical subatomic particle postulated to account for the rarity of processes which break charge–parity symmetry.’

Can’t wait to drop that into conversation in The White Hart tonight ……..

Hmm …..

I am, as usual, early for an appointment and discovered that the small coffee shop I often frequent to kill time has technical problems and therefore I have been forced to enter another coffee outlet…. I hesitate to use the word cafe. Sitting next to me is a large man. He has brought a tray of potentially lethal objects to the table. He has eaten…. No, absorbed some sort of slice and is now dipping marshmallows into a vat of coffee the size of a small bucket which has a lava like topping which I suspect is some sort of cream…. though I suspect any connection between this and actual milk is probably tenuous, to say the least. Am I justified in finding this disgusting?!

Probably not ….. I admit that on occasions I can consume an entire jumbo bag of wine gums in less time than it took me to open the pack. So let those who are without sin etc. as someone once said. However I take my guilty pleasures in private ….. does that make me feel better….. not really.

Buon appetito !
