World gone mad (again)

I was in an unnamed bakery today, let’s call it Peg’s.

Me: “Hello, one loaf of bread please.”
Fool: “I’m afraid we don’t sell bread.”
Me: “But… this is a bakery.”
Fool: “…we don’t sell bread.”
Me: “Yes, you said.”
Fool: “You can have a Caramel Croquembouche.”
Me: “I… what?”

Why would a bakery not sell bread? It’s hard to say.

As hard to say as Croquembouche.

  1. Because caramel croquembouches are a perfectly legitimate lunch, so there is no need for ordinary bread. Silly Chris!

    Mmm, croquembouche. Not only is it delicious, it’s also French.

  2. Call me crazy, but I’m french and I have no idea what Croquembouche is.

    A bakery without bread is like a butcher without meat! Insane!

  3. Oh my word…

    You are within your rights to return and pay them with grit from the road, as you say “I don’t use money…”

  4. Pay them for what?!

    I’m not carrying a sodding croquembouche home on the train!

    No, seriously, good idea, I’ll let you know how it pans out.

    (Pains out, get it?!)

  5. Thanks for the birthday wish!

    We have a Yum Yum Donuts that doesn’t sell donuts anymore, only bread.

  6. I think I have been away from England for too long. Next time play it safe and go to Braggs the Bakers if they are still around!
