Shopping Dockets found in a Cookbook bought from the LifeLine Bookfair.
The book is “Shoots, Leaves and Eats”, by Fran Archway. I’m assuming Fran knows the joke!
Tucked inside the pages are two shopping dockets.
Two different supermarkets.
One lists Shape Active milk, Brocolli and Sweet William Pears.
The other lists full cream milk, butternut snaps and peanuts.
One healthy, one not so healthy. I wonder; do two people do the shopping? Or does one person do the shopping, with conflicting purchases? Do they buy the healthy food where people they know can see them, and the unhealthy stuff at a place where they know nobody?
If I use it in a story, I’ll make the contrast more extreme, but I love the little contradiction these two dockets provide.
I found lots of excellent books at the bookfair. More soon.
