Here's a great fast food story, as long as we are telling stories here:
When my eldest was about 14, she was babysitting two boys who lived around the corner from the fast food joint. The mom gave my daughter some money and told her to take the boys over there for dinner. She ordered "two one-fourth pounders". She had never been to a fast food hamburger place, and was unaware that the order should have been for "two quarter pounders". Then the non-native English speaker at the cash register handed her 8 hamburgers!
We've been laughing ever since.
And now I have a sudden craving, don't know why.....

YES!! Sunday tea - exactly that! With the addition of 'salad' (the only time we ever had it) - which consisted of a few whole lettuce leaves from a round lettuce, tomatoes (whole - which frustrated me as our tea knives were never sharp enough to cut them), slices of cucumber and mustard and cress. Heinz salad cream for those who wanted me (not me!) - no other seasoning

That is hysterical
I hope Twinkle was okay.
My daughter once pogo-ed 1000 times without stopping. Now I want to text her - after she's done with work - and remind her of that

Oh yes, toast done on a toasting fork in front of the fire with corned beef legs to go with it!
