I met a man today, in the main street of Kingsbridge; he offered me, for free a fresh lettuce, so fresh in fact they were still growing
A man of lettuce*
He explained he had far too many for his own use (it looks to me like they were growing in a length of guttering, but I might be wrong; there was the odd comic moment, a bit like Laurel and Hardy with a ladder, where passing pedestrians came close to a whack on the back of the head with a fresh lettuce.) Sadly I had to decline, I was on my way to the Cookworthy Museum and not really set up for carrying fluffy lettuce, but it was a generous act, a random act of kindness that made me smile.
Further up the road, I’m not sure what a marketing guru would have made of this linked sale / product placement.
I’m sure it was done with the best possible intentions, to promote a flag day, but….
*I have to credit my friend Ogg, for that line.
