As Technician to the Food Department I have to work quite hard, however, there is the occasional “perk” that makes up for the mahoooosive pile of tea towels and dish clothes that the young ladies get through each day, that are part of my derestriction…..
…… namely, a fact finding mission to the local Pan Asian restaurant, of a buffet type nature, to look at different foods from around the world, trying dishes that perhaps we may never have tried before. I was put in charge of the transport arrangements, so it was a no brainer that I called up Mr Collis to afford us safe passage to our destination ….
….. and it was also a perfect excuse to catch up on the adventures of our very old friend, Mr Collis’s monkey ….
…… who travels everywhere with Mr. C, leading a very romantic life, not too dissimilar from Brendan on Coach Trip (our very favourite travelogue programme of choice).
Mr Collis afforded us such aforementioned safe passage that we arrived at Cosmo five minutes before it opened …. it was if we were transported by the wind.
The food was all very nomtastic, however, on this occasion I chose mainly from the Chinese menu, firstly in homage to the Chinese New Year, and secondly, because, to be honest, I prefer not to mix my continents in a comestible type way ….. for me, personally, a slice of pizza, a serving of sweet and sour chicken and rogan josh do not sit comfortably on my plate (on the other hand …. Darrell and Nigel would embrace such a combination)
However I did try an array of new dishes and sought out a few green beans so that my rigorous five a day regime would not be compromised.For pudding, I could not resist an ample sufficiency of apple fritters and a custard filled profiterole, but held back from smothering them with cream, thinking about my waistline.
The visit was a great success but over to soon and unfortunately there was work to go back to. It was so lovely to catch up with Mr Collis’s monkey and I thanked him for our much mentioned safe passage, we both hoped it wouldn’t be too long before we would be able to meet up again and traverse the winding roads of Wolverhampton together once more.
As for the rest of my afternoon? ….. Lets just say I moved a little heavier and slower than is my norm!!!!!!
