The current climate of my brain being what it is (decidedly squally) you may find I take refuge in more frequent posts. Not promising quality, but I have to keep my mind in some sort of order.
Did you know that you can now purchase ancient wisdom in the free market arena? Specifically, on the back of a packet of sushi from the Co-op.
Above, my empty packet of sushi. Here’s what was written on the side:
In case it looks blurry, I shall transcribe. Ahem..
“Zen is a branch of Buddhism popular in Japan. Zen discourages the pursuit of worldly things” [excepting Meal Deal offers?] “and acknowledges that life’s pain and suffering often comes from material desires.” [excepting the desire for nicely packaged sushi bought from a supermarket chain, one assumes..]
So, there you go. Your daily dose of the weirdness that is life in the UK. Add to that, this branch of Co-op served primarily as a petrol station (my friend, M, was filling up before dropping me home), and the absurdity reaches new heights.
I laugh at this stuff because it’s just so surreal. We’re living in a dream.
