Of beans and things
Judi shares an embarrassing shopping moment.
My daughter was probably about 4 when I shoved her into a trolley for a quick dash into Woolies .... you know, that divine, convenient food store. 

Suddenly, at the top of her voice, my darling offspring starts saying VERY LOUDLY, “There, there Mom, there’s that stuff you NEVER buy Dad and me”.  At this stage, as you can imagine, we now had the entire aisle looking to see what this mean mother doesn’t give her family. 

I was hastily scanning the shelves when Meg calmly reached out and picked up a tin of .... Baked Beans!!!  I have never been so embarrassed and to top it all, she wanted 2 tins of the Woolies brand, around R12 a tin at that stage.  I threw them in and charged out the shop.

It’s not that I don’t give them to my family .... I just don’t eat them.

Thanks for the laughs each week.
