My Featured Blogger this week is Ben Goddard, a.k.a. Benny Boy. I recently discovered Ben and know very little about him except that he’s very British and very funny, loves tea but hates coffee, and (here’s an enigma) rather un-Britishly drinks Coors beer. Quick tip for non-Brits: When Ben talks about buying groceries from Iceland, he’s not referring to the country, but to a supermarket chain that specializes in–you guessed it–frozen foods. Right then, grab your trolley and press on!
I was getting my food delivered long before COVID made it cool. I avoid supermarkets in much the same way that Chris Witty avoids blinking.
I’ve just never been comfortable in that environment. Everything seems to so easily wind me up in there.
They move the eggs to a different aisle. My day is ruined.
They’ve run out of my cat’s favourite meat, so she’s gonna kick off when I get home. My day is ruined.

‘Card inserted too early’

‘Please fully insert card into reader’
Oh great, so now I’m getting self-conscious about the size of my debit card.
