Ever since I had eel last week I’ve been humming the song ‘I can take you to the sun‘ by The Misunderstood. I don’t own this record and I’m not a conspiracy theorist, but I’m starting to worry about the subliminal effects of Vietnamese eel soup. Do certain dishes trigger off certain songs in your head? Hmmm? Maybe I’ve lost it.
A distinct possibility. I did dress the toad in a full length bumble bee costume this morning – 119,000VD from The Saigon Centre and selling like scorchin’ hot cakes – Ostensibly this was for a Halloween bash, but let’s be brutally honest here these costumes have only one selling point in the eyes of parents. Twisted amusement 🙂
The eel shed tips are slithering in – cheers…
