CoofCunt Nine-Peen Food Shortages

  • LOL.... yeah... pretty good description. I was walking about 7 miles or so a day doing the tourist thing. A lot more some days. I was always hungry. I was shoveling the stuff in. The brits are like....... polite eaters. like women on a date. They talked during the meal like they had all day. They would ask me a question. My mouth would be full.... I would hold up a finger as in 'just a minute' they would all be quiet till I swallowed and answered. weird shit.

  • Yep.... They had coffee without even asking if anyone liked it. They said they knew that there were two Americans sooo.... They also had milk and cereal along with all the rest. Watching me eat.... the brits would see I was done with one thing or another and then pass a plate of that to me.


    In Duxford.... The nice hospitality lady had tea and some munchies but had a percolator of coffee toward the back. I said something like 'great you have coffee' She poured me a cup and said in a whisper... "you are an American right?" Said yep. She got real conspiratorial and reached under the counter and came up with a couple little containers half and half on ice..... Said that her husband was an American soo... you know she knew about Americans!

  • At my home growing up. There were five boys. Dinner was well... Assembly line almost.... My dad was not a big eater but his rule was that he got a full plate first and once he had it he would just say "alight hit it!" it would be like a pack of wild dogs. My mom told me a few years ago that she made 20 hamburgers for dinner sometimes. They were small but still.... Mom never made bacon. she said that there was no way to keep up.


    The neighbor with only two daughters was horrified when he invited my 13 year old self to dinner. He was watching me shovel the food in. They had peas in butter sauce. good. Sooo the wife says ... Do you want some more peas? she said that not to worry everyone was done. I held the pan on one hand and a spoon in the other and just shoveled em in. My dad said.... 'we tried to warn you'

  • They are very kind. Seeing and watching them squirm about my ethnicity at breakfast was fun.


    Now at the pubs at night the politeness is still there but.... A few would have no problem stubbing out a smoke in your eye socket though.


    I had a great time. My brother even more.

  • I have a huge cast iron fry pan. even that will hardly hold a pound of thick bacon. I don't even take it off the stove except to wash it. People at the superspreader event enjoyed stuff like fried egg sandwiches made in it along with Mrs Bj's stir fry dinner. One of the things her and I agreed on was how to care for cast iron fry pans. Mine is more than 80 years old according to my late mother in law who gave it to me.

  • The Scotts did not claim me. LOL.... my name was not one they were fond of in the current socialist government. Apparently my family "maccus weil" was Not big on joining causes and had a castle that had never been taken by anyone. They got accused of being traitors by.... oddly enough... a real traitor and were not exonerated for 50 years.


    I think they were put off too by my absolute lack of 'thriftyness'
