I went shopping today…
Am I the only one picturing some gremlin, logged into Twitter, fingers on keyboard, deciding what shopping panic to instigate next?
This time of year, I’ve often wondered who on earth buys their Christmas turkey in October, when the supermarkets start upping their stock.
But the empty freezers today are where the frozen turkey usually sits. (I know this because the labels are still there.) I somehow doubt the purchasers of said frozen turkeys are all American ex-pats looking forward to Thanksgiving.
My family have invited themselves around to us for Christmas (total of 11, maybe 12 for dinner) but I’m damned if I’ll clear out my freezer in October to accommodate a 20lb turkey for ten weeks.
If I can’t get a turkey, we’ll eat something else.
