Plans.

Mr.Fish is unwell. I'm hoping it's constipation. The cloud tells me to fast him for a couple of days, then feed him mushed green pea, although one person suggests getting straight on the pea treatment so you find out quickly if it's actually something else. I like this idea but we are all out of peas.

And as we are also trying to empty the freezer for a defrost, 10B doesn't want to buy a new bag. Especially since I only want one.

In fact half of one would probably be plenty.

The prospect of negotiating with local food retailers for one pea (or even just a half of one) is a little daunting, especially since I recently decided to work harder to appear normal rather than allow myself to slide further into the role of local bag ladyeccentric, and I think having to explain the pea situation to the nice people at the local IGA would be a backward step.

So for this reason I've determined that, health permitting, I'm going to the shops tomorrow to steal half a pea. It's down to half because I really don't feel good about theft, it's just that I'm driven to it by my need to keep up social appearances (god it's a cruel world) so at the very least, I'll keep the actual theft to a minimum.

~~~

It's going to be so awful if I get caught.

Peas always helped my fish. I never gave them an entire one, though. I'd break off a squishy piece and give more if that didn't work.

Good luck with your pea pilfering.

Beside, if you go into the grocery and announce "I need a pea!", they'll just motion you into the back room.

I was going to suggest this, as well as any bins of dried peas sold in bulk. Or perhaps the fish store would have a few peas around? Surely they would understand your need for a pea!

I suspect the fresh veggie bins probably have a few peas to spare as well, although I can't say as I've ever really looked as unless they're in pods I tend to loathe peas.

Don't you hate it when you've decided to be all sane and normal and not scare the neighbors and then something like pea theft comes up? Sigh.

Gosh, I wish I had a pea that I could teleport to you.

This is hysterically funny, btw.

You would have been transported to the colonies for that one pea once!

I am imagining the face of a magistrate in court if you were prosecuted.

If you fail to find a free pea, let me know and I will bring you some.
