Date of Last Visit: Sunday, June 15
The Victim: Me
The Damage: About £10 for two hunks of cheese and little lemon tart.
The Background: Sometimes I think about what I would do with myself if I were independently wealthy. (Surely I can’t be alone in this.) Thinking about all the possibilities can keep me occupied for HOURS.
Although I don’t claim to be overly passionate about cheese, I do like cheese. And I like cheese shops. And I really liked La Fromagerie in Highbury where I was so overwhelmed by the amount of goat’s cheese on offer that I surrendered myself to the somewhat surly cheesemonger and had him pick me out two. I would tell you what I ended up with, but he didn’t really tell me (but nor did I ask), and they didn’t put any information about the cheeses in my bag. (Is it really that hard?) So now f I go back, I’m going to have to start all over again.
So when I have the millions that I deserve, I will open a cheese shop. A friendly and helpful one. Really people, is it really that hard?
The Verdict: I’ll ask more questions next time.
