Charmion BS: Christmas Tavern 2019 (82* d) RE: BS: Christmas Tavern 2019 18 Dec 19


The Canadian party mushes up to the door of the Tavern, kicking slush off their boots and sniffing at the brandy-sodden Christmas cake. “ Did your Mum ever make anything like that?” says the woman in the battered leather mittens. “God, no,” says her husband, as he struggles out of his insanely expensive down-filled parka. “That stuff takes a pound of butter and eight eggs per batch — who can afford that?”

They take a table near the fire and begin to steam gently. “Oh, look,” says the woman as she unwinds about six feet of scarf. “The cake people also have crumpets! Do you think they’d let us sit with them?”

They take a bottle of rye whiskey out of their shopping bag and set it on the table. Gazing meaningfully at the African man and his large box, the woman leans toward the little round lady and says, “Hi, there! Ya know what goes great with fruitcake?”
