Shopping Aisle Talk

A Poem by John Alexander McFadyen
"

A Tanka

"

Suddenly you spoke,

as we browsed discounted food.

You can't eat kippers.

They are your favourite fish

but they don't agree with you.

Indeed pithy and to the point as this was exactly the sum of the conversation. Many thanks.
Apart from the cat breath after eating, Kippers are Nice! Fun read John.

Thanks David, but just one of those passing fancies lol!
Could we have kippers for breakfast...it just goes to show you can always come up with a conversation about something in a supermarket. :)

Definitely a scintalating conversation! Most likely the kippers would find us most disagreeable! By the way is kippers a breakfast cereal?!

Kipper is a smoked fish (herring) generally eaten at breakfast lol. Cheers
i like this because it reminds me of so many conversations struck up in the grocery store...
always fun to meet people in the frozen food aisle...and both people to find a thawing with a good chat.
