There was much robust excitement amidst the kitchen yesterday with the installation and introduction of two new slush machines …….. hopefully, a fortuitous move …. what with the summer term and accompanying warm weather beckoning!
Fortuitous too, that Nigel was readily on hand, suitably empty and most eager, to give the Cook Lady his considered opinion on both the Cosmic Cola and Strawberry Delight ……………
….. of which he insisted on sampling copiously so as not to miss any subtle nuances of flavour, consistency of slush and ambiance of temperature ……..
However, Nigel’s rather abundant and over diligent evaluation had an unfortunate consequence, namely that he sampled to such an extent that he in fact managed to deplete the contents of both machines to such a degree that half way through service the machines ran dry leaving an awful lot of girls unable to make a 90p considered slush purchase of their own. The Cook Lady has now had to tell Nigel that though she greatly values and appreciates his opinion, he would nevertheless have to learn to appraise and evaluate with rather less consumption and gusto!
And his verdict on the slush….. nom, nom, chilly nom nom!!
