A Catastrophic Error

Mrs Sensible has a Shakespearean dilemma – ‘To spit or not to spit?’


The nice lady at Secret Sicily invited me to write a guest post for her blog. If you want to read about when Mrs Sensible was a Miss and made a Catastrophic error please go to Secret Sicily

  1. My heart goes out to Mrs. S. There is nothing worse than biting into something expecting it to taste a certain way and then have it be something totally different (like the proverbial box of chocolates).
    Did she develop a taste for scotch eggs? Probably not.


    • Hi Liz, so you are from ‘over them there hills’ My mum was from somewhere called Dukinfield. I remember pork pies from Lancashire were special and eccles cakes. I also remember it rained more than it did in Yorkshire.


  2. Congrats on your guest post!
    I laughed out loud but felt sorry for Mrs S biting into an arancino sans the usual trimmings! Indeed it must have been traumatic knowing what the Sicilian rice ball is like!!! Hopefully she has recovered!


  3. I can imagine her surprise! I had a similar reaction when I was given root beer in the US after being told it was like ginger beer. It wasn’t, and I had to resist the urge to spit it out because it tasted like mouthwash.


    • Root beer!!!! What is that?
      It is always a shock when you think you are eating / drinking one thing and are given something different. It is too early in the morning to tell you about the time Mrs S let me eat lumaca on a skewer when I thought it was a beef..
