An Unpleasant Realisation: Returned from a two day trip to the property. Picking up dinner ingredients on way home from work. Recipe calls for onions. Have onions at home - so strike off the list. Realise a beat later that there are only onions in France, none in Lambeth.
The second the Onion Thought appeared as stood in Sainsbury's, felt like a total cretin, or as Will Ferrell would say, cotton headed ninny muggins. The titular 'unpleasant realisation' was less to do with the misplacement of onions and more to do feeling like a 'second home w&nker' for the first time. One that mismanages vegetable storage.
