Foreign(ers are) Nuts
The trolley squeals as I push it forward, protesting that it should not be asked to do much on a weekend. I feel the same but do not squeal as my partner may not appreciate this sentiment.
We fill our shopping trolley with a few essentials and things that we will need during our short stay here in Malta. It takes us a while as we do not have a shopping list and inspect every shelf carefully.
We weave through the throngs of shoppers, elusive offers and canned foods. My Achilles heel meets the wrong end of a supermarket trolley a few times and I watch the impatient customer carefully, waiting for a suitable moment to wreak my revenge.
We reach the fruit and veg section. She disappears in search of some elusive item while I stand in line and wait to weigh my onions. (That is not a euphemism)
While in line, I cannot help but notice the crates of dried fruits and nuts behind the counter:
I say nothing to the staff, fearing for my onions.
