Mince Pies [Dec. 24th, 2005|07:11 pm]
Mental note: when up north, on going into a bakers and asking for "a coffee and a mince pie", you will often end up with getting something other than that which you expected.

The coffee was as you'd expect. The mince pie was a pie, and it contained mince....

I'm told that I should've asked for "a sweet mince pie". Oh well, you live and learn (and eat meat containing pies with your coffee!)

Where's "up North", in this context?

Morpeth, Northumberland. That's just a bit north of Newcastle

Ah. Well, they're a little weird up there anyway ;)
