One of the manservant's tasks is to bring bananas home a couple of times during the week so that the ones in our fruit bowl are always nice (I don't like them once they get past the just-ripe stage).
This week he is on a mountain top in Australia and I sent a joke message saying we had run out of bananas and to please get some on the way home.
On Saturday I got a delivery from Edible Arrangements and initially thought "oh ha ha he's wonderful – he's sent me (very expensive) bananas". Then I saw the box … mmmm – what are these.
I read the card and it was a thank you from a friend who had been over for dinner a while ago. I opened the box and there WERE bananas!! Sublimely covered in chocolate!
And pineapple – half dipped in chocolate and dipped in coconut.
We must invite him over more often!
