Recently I seem to have developed a habit of looking at other peoples' shopping baskets at the checkout. This morning the guy next to me had a bunch of bananas, sliced ham, spinach, a packet of mixed nuts and box of blueberries. I was tempted to ask "Paleo?" but thought it would be rather awkward if he wasn't.
I mean either I would have got an "Excuse me!?" and then I would have had to fumble some kind of explanation primal or other. That or I would have just inadvertently outed myself with a pick-up line for some gay caveman subculture; I mean this is London of course.
I am thinking maybe we should have a sign like the Freemasons. A primal signature wink and nod, perhaps a subtle raised arm grabbing an air-spear. That way if there is no response you can just pretend you were yawning or better look like you were 16 in 1985 and merely doing an air-punch, which would actually match the bandanna tied around your ankle.
Anyway does anyone else find themselves doing the same, or perhaps even picked-up after successfully swapping coconut recipes at the checkout?
Personally speaking if I was ever to have a beautiful girl point at my bacon and ask "covering with chocolate?" I may just ask her to marry me right there. But knowing my luck she would probably ask me for my non-existent Fran time and then walk away shaking her head in dismay.
