Whilst on a shopping trip earlier this week my human dad spotted one of his favourite foods on a supermarket shelf.
Stacked on a display rack near to the entrance of the Asda Supermarket in Kendal, Cumbria, were around fifty mince pies.
Pinching himself and checking the day of the week he initially thought he was seeing things after being out in the very warm mid-day sunshine.
With a temperature outside around 25 degrees centigrade and almost five months until Christmas he wondered if he had been time shifted to a parallel universe.
Christmas mince pies
Upon his return home he recounted his story and checked the Asda online store to see if this may have been a one off occurrence. Sure enough mince pies are listed as a six pack of tea time treats costing £1.
Now I don’t know about you but having special foods available all year around sort of lessens the longing. They no longer become sort after.
I wonder if this is how our ancestors would feel now to see cans of dog food on a shelf and look back at the old ways of chasing our prey. Not knowing if supper would be leg of deer or a scrawny pigeon.
One good thing I suppose is that my favourite vegetable, the Brussel Sprout, should soon be returning to my diet very soon. I can hardly wait.
Until next time, Happy Summer.
