Holiday sellout #1


Bank Holiday Monday in the seaside resort. Families were milling around everywhere. Still partly in lockdown, takeaway food was the order of the day for almost everyone. Come 6pm, the queues were forming fast. Two main takeaway choices it seemed, pizzas or fish and chips.

We rarely have fish and chips, the English heritage choice, so that’s what it would be. I stood in line planning my order. Would it be cod, or plaice, or haddock with our chips?

Then the server announced “No more fish!” Fish and chips with no fish?Extraordinary! It was like a brothel with no hookers!
